Shocker… Obama’s “Jobs” Plan Calls for $400 Billion in Tax Hikes

In August 2009 President Obama was very clear that you shouldn’t raise taxes during a recession.

But that was in 2009…
Now President Barack Obama is proposing tax hikes to help pay for his latest $447 Billion stimulus plan.
Reuters reported:

President Barack Obama is proposing a series of tax increases, mainly on the wealthy, to help cover the cost of a $447 billion economic stimulus proposal, budget chief Jack Lew said on Monday.

Lew said Obama’s plan would raise $400 billion over 10 years by placing new limits on itemized deductions for individuals making more than $200,000 a year and families earning more than $250,000.

The rest of the $467 billion in savings would come from raising a smattering of other taxes, including those on corporate jet owners and the oil and gas industry.

Business Insider today revealed that Barack Obama plans on paying for the plan with $400 billion in tax increases.
