"I can make a firm pledge under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.
You will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime." –Barack Hussein Obama
When it comes to Health Care we don’t have to choose between a government run health care system and the unaffordable one we have now.Read Obama's Lips; No new taxes on the Middle Class! Yeah right! So how does one defend the indefensible? Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs does it by a number of amateurish debating ploys when asked if his boss will break his word and raise taxes on the middle class. He defects, he demeans and he obfuscates. Some say that his antics are down right arrogant.
If you already have health insurance the only thing that will change under my plan is that we will the lower your premiums.
If you don’t have health insurance you’ll be able to get the same kind of health insurance that members of Congress give themselves—Sen. Barack Hussein Obama
Interestingly enough he has not had to defend his boss against a hostile press like the anti-Bush press. No on the contrary Obama’s press has been an awestruck and worshipping press. But apparently things are changing for the presidency of hope and change.
After Obama’s Global Warming win in the House of Representatives he moved immediately to hawk his universal health care reform. What this means to the American people is a mountain of debt so insurmountable that it is breaking the back of the U.S. economy by an unbearable weight on taxpayers at a time that the American people suffer the highest unemployment rate since 1948, the American economy can ill afford the grandiose socialist schemes of the Obama Democrat Party at this time.
It is the weight of both Iraq and Afghanistan wars, the $700billion dollar bailout, the $787billion dollar stimulus package, $161billion Global warming cap and trade taxes(if the Democrat controlled Senate passes their version of the global warming bill too) , $1.6trillion dollars of taxes for Obama Health Care reforms (if Congress gives Obama what he wants). In addition because Democrats mismanaged the first $787billion dollar bailout there is even talk of a second multi-billion dollar bailout all new taxes on an unemployed and underemployed American people. It's beginning to appear that they don't care about the consequences of their actions!
These new taxes would be more taxes levied on the American people than any other time in American history and more taxes imposed upon the American people than by any other President and Congress in the history of this country.
Which brings us to our point, the White House press corps was for the first time, since Obama’s been in office, attempting to do their job by asking Gibbs if President Obama is going to keep the word he made during his campaign then he promised several times not to raise taxes on families making less than $250,000 a year while knowing that his health care proposal would in fact raise taxes on the middle class. In case you’ve forgotten his pledge I’ve added it to aid your memory (see 1:26min. video)
Now watch how Gibbs defect, demean and obfuscate when a White House reporter asked if President Obama will keep his promise not to raise taxes on family earning under $250,000 dollars a year. (see 50sec. video)
We will let the process work itself through? What does that mean Mr. Gibbs?
Obama also had to know that the American people would never get the same Health Care coverage that Congress is getting thus his campaign pledges were phony and were meant to be broken. White House Reporters Helen Thomas and Chip Reid ask Gibbs about the way that the President's staged July 1, Health Care forum held at Northern Virginia Community College's Annandale campus had selected certain Reporters to cover the scheduled event. They also raised the question about Clinton like planted questions meant to deceive and influence the American people. Once again Gibbs defects, demeans and obfuscates (see 3:50min. video)
The truth is if Obama gets all that he wants from this Congress taxes will be raised on everyone even though Robert Gibbs couldn't bring himself to tell the truth and say it, the economy will be ruined and America will be forever changed from a producer Nation to a low wage paying third world Nation.(see related articles here, here and here)
According to Vice President Joe Biden Democrats didn't guess correctly on the economy and they aren't right on Health Care either.
When Congress passes Health Care Reform for Obama your taxes will go up and your health care will not be the same gold plated health care as Congress receives. And more Obama lies will be exposed.
How's that hope and change working for ya?
