Barack Obama and a Legacy of Tax Increases

October 9, 2008 · Filed Under Economy, Fiscal 

One of the main points of the Barack Obama campaign is that he has promised a tax cut for 95 percent of Americans.

It’s important to note that 30% of people in the country pay no federal income taxes. So, their “tax cut” is actually a welfare check.

But forget that huge lie for a second and think about his voting record. Obama has spent his time in the Senate voting for tax increases.

Obama has voted at least 94 times for higher taxes in the U.S. Senate.

But now, in this fragile economy, where Obama has plans to dramatically increase spending and cut taxes for “95% of Americans.

Come on, do you really believe this? Really?

Do the math.
