Shock and Double Shock!

Many will be shocked--SHOCKED, I say--that Obama lied about tax increases.

But even more people will be shocked that the MSM (CNBC) calls him out on it.

Twice in the past two weeks, Obama has claimed his middle class tax pledge only applied to income taxes rather than “any form of taxes”.

In his April 10 Weekly Radio Address, Obama said: “And one thing we have not done is raise income taxes on families making less than $250,000. That’s another promise we’ve kept.” In a speech on the evening of April 15, Obama repeated the truncated promise: “And one thing we haven’t done is raise income taxes on families making less than $250,000 a year — another promise that we kept.”

The two recent statements stand in stark contrast to Obama’s original promise: “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. --CNBC, quoted by Ace

Something tells me that the press has gotten off its knees, albeit not ALL of the MSM has done so.

And just in time; that VAT (or Cap-n-Tax) will demolish any 'recovery' spending by US citizens.
