Last week, an "amused" President Obama opined on the Tea Party gatherings. He said, because of his tax cuts, "You would think they'd be saying 'thank you.'"
Now, President Obama is considering a Value Added Tax (VAT) - effectively raising taxes on all of us!
I am very concerned with our economy - as everyone is. We are facing tremendous debt, minimal job growth, and now more taxes (not to mention the taxes hidden in the health care bill). Raising taxes during an economic downturn is not the right thing to do. History proves this time and again.
President Obama cannot claim to be a tax cutter and then turn around and raise taxes. We are not amused!
