Nearly four years have gone by since candidate Barack Obama became President Barack Obama. Four years have gone by since Barack Obama sounded like a liberal president who wanted to bring about change in the United States of America. We have waited four years for a president who would challenge Republicans by stating bluntly they think only of power and hate. We have waited four years for a president who would openly state that wealthy people MUST pay higher income taxes. Of course, by “higher” it simply means LESS than what wealthy people paid for fifty years.
Obama has indicated a willingness to fight over the issue of taxes. He will argue for maintaining reduced taxes for those earning under $250,000 but allowing taxes for those over that figure to rise from 36% to 39%. OK, the additional three percent is the first step on the road to SOCIALISM, but during World War II the top rate was 90%.
