Remember when ObaMao promised that no new taxes would fall on those making less than $250 grand? Remember when I said “bullshit?”
Bend over…here it comes! Steny Hoyer is paving the way for massive new taxes on the middle class, saying:
“As the House and Senate debate what to do with the expiring Bush tax cuts in the coming weeks, we need to have a serious discussion about their implications for our fiscal outlook, including whether we can afford to permanently extend them before we have a real plan for long-term deficit reduction.”
He goes on to give the standard lip service to reductions in spending before concluding:
In case you haven’t yet figured out how to parse the sewage that flows from the mouths of these people 24/7, I’ll translate for you: “Bend over. We’re going to tax your asses off so we can continue to redistribute YOUR wealth to people of OUR choosing to make sure that they vote for us again in coming elections.” Those occasional references to “reduced spending” mean less than nothing. No serious person can believe that our government (as presently constituted) will ever reduce spending meaningfully. For instance, in the midst of our financial meltdown, the NIH has spent $2 MILLION of your dollars on a study promoting condom use among intravenous drug users in Kazakhstan. See, to Hoyer and the rest of the imperial ObaMao bastards who have their boots firmly on our necks, $2 million is chicken feed. Besides, they see it as THEIR money not OURS.
So grab the KY and bend over. It’s started.
