Time to Tell the Truth About Taxing the Middle Class

CNS News reports that on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” Sunday, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner revealed President Obama’s next move: a tax increase on middle-class Americans.

Are you shocked? The lies and deception of this president continue to mount. Still, there is no outcry from the media lackeys. Read this exchange.

Stephanopoulos asked: “The president has said that taxes won't go up for any Americans earning under $250,000. But it doesn't appear he's going to be able to keep that promise if you're going to bring the deficits down.”

“George, again,” said Geithner, "we can't make these judgments yet about exactly what it's going to take and how we're going to get there. But the very important thing, and no one is going to care about this more than the president of the United States, is for people to understand that we do not have a choice as a country. That if we want an economy that's going to grow in the future, people have to understand we have to bring those deficits down. And it's going to be difficult, hard for us to do. And the path to that is through health care reform. But that's necessary but not sufficient. We're going to do some other things as well.”

Stephanopoulos then tried to get Geithner to rule out a tax increase, which Geithner would not do.

“So revenues are on the table as well?” asked Stephanopoulos.

“Again, we're not at the point yet where we're going to make a judgment about what it's going to take,” said Geithner.

“But you're not ruling it out. You can't rule it out,” said Stephanopoulos.

“Well, I think that what the country needs to do is understand we're going to have to do what it takes,” said Geithner. “We're going to do what's necessary.”

The hands of the Obama gang are in your pockets and soon will be in every orifice of your body. They will steal the gold from your teeth if they can. They will take every nickel you have worked and sweated to make. That money will be used to support illegal welfare recipients like Barack's auntie and other parasites who'd rather not work for a living.

Come on America, stand up and fight back.
