Obama Says “Nobody’s Talking About Increasing Taxes” …Then 9 Minutes Later Proposes Increasing ‘Revenues’ (Taxes)
During his press conference today Barack Obama told reporters that nobody’s talking about increasing taxes:
11:22 a.m. ET – @LisaDCNN: OBAMA-TAXES: Nobody has talked about increasing taxes now or next yr. We have talked about closing loopholes in 2013.
Then 9 minutes later told reporters that we need to increase revenues (taxes):
11:31 a.m. ET – “It is hard to persuade people to do hard stuff that includes trimming benefits and increasing revenues” Obama said. “Reason we have a problem now is people keep avoiding hard things.”
Hey… Somebody has to pay off his debt!
Barack Obama increased the national debt by over $3 trillion in just over 2 years.
Obama tripled the deficit in one year with his failed stimulus plan.
The Obama deficit this year may reach $1.65 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)
Barack Obama and Democrats also added over One Trillion Dollars to the Federal Budget in the last 4 years.
That’s at least a 30% increase in federal spending in just 3 years.
For the record… The only reason there is not an agreement already is because Obama and democrats insist on increasing taxes.
