If you want to know what a carbon tax on emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) would do to America you need only look at the destruction of industry and business in Australia, along with the soaring costs for energy use it imposes on anyone there.
In an interview with CNN, Stephanie Cutter, President Obama’s Deputy Campaign Manager admits that Obama’s attack on Mitt Romney claiming that his tax cuts would add 5 trillion to the debt technically wasn’t correct.
The United Nations is opening its General Assembly session, and with it comes plans of taxing the entire world.
January 1, 2013 is the day the largest tax increase in the history of the United States will take effect. Not only will all tax brackets rise in percentage of taxation, but the Bush tax cuts will be eliminated thanks to President Obama. This means that families, individuals and small businesses will be paying considerably more to the government in taxes. The combination of these multiple tax increases hitting all at once will be devastating to an already anemic U.S. economy.
Personal Tax Rates Will Rise on January 1, 2013 as follows:
President Obama and the liberal politicians that side with him tell us that taxing high income earners helps the government and, in an effort to fool those who don’t pay attention, claim that will help the economy also. Well as pointed out by Godfather Politics, we have an example of a state who has had the philosophy – California.
If I were to tell you that the government is going to take more money from you and that they were going to use the IRS to enforce it by hiring thousands of additional IRS agents to do it, what word would you use to describe it? Would it matter if I called it a tax or a penalty if it essentially does the same thing? Of course not.
Some conservatives are saying they disagree with Ron Paul’s foreign policy. Please consider this; I’d rather disagree with Ron Paul’s foreign policy than his domestic policy! Obama’s domestic policy is to tax businesses to the point that they can’t hire anyone. The United States currently has the highest corporate/business tax in the world! Ron Paul would end that! He’d also cut an INCREDIBLE amount of wasteful spending that our current government does with our tax dollars.
Just those two things are reason enough to elect Paul. And on top of that, concerning his foreign policy, we’ve got to come to grips with the fact that we can’t afford to police the world anymore. We’re broke! People are acting like we can have a conversation about the issues while ignoring that fact.
Not long ago, Obama warned that raising taxes in a struggling economy is “the last thing you want to do.”
In a 2009 interview with Chuck Todd, Obama said, “The last thing you want to do is raise taxes in the middle of a recession because that would just suck up – take more demand out of the economy and put business further in a hole.” Source
Yet now, with the economy in the worse shape of his presidency and since the “Great Depression” he wants to raise taxes on businesses…in addition to the coming 2013 tax increases that he has already passed that would make us the single highest corporate/business taxer on earth while other countries are falling over themselves to lower taxes so that their businesses can compete in the global economy?
Yep, that’s what he said.
UK economists state that the tax rate makes the UK “less competitive internationally, and is making us less attractive as a destination for both foreign investment and talented workers”.
It has done and IS DOING the same thing over here. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that high taxes prevent corporations from hiring and from having competitive prices in the global market. The United States is the second highest taxer of businesses/corporations on earth. I wish Obama would admit that as Bill Clinton did. But Obama refuses to even humor the idea. He’ll bow to his socialistic philosophy no matter what it does to our economy and our people.
It turns out, according to the New York Times and NewsMax.com that Senator Schumer (Democrat) didn’t know reporters were listening to a conversation he was having with fellow Democrats. The reporters were waiting to interview him on a cell phone conference call and he didn’t realize that the call had started.
“I always use the word extreme,” Schumer told his fellow Democrats. “That is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.”
Rather than talk about issues or facts, liberals resort to name calling. After all, if you think the government shouldn’t be so massive that we can’t afford it and you think that the government should spend less rather than increasing taxes you are an extremist. And that name sounds so much worse than talking about the other part.
