The real Vladimir Ilyich Obama stands up
As part of his fantasy “deficit reduction” plan, Barack Obama proposed a number of new taxes. One of them was the so-called “Buffett Rule.” When it was initially proposed, it was part of the plan to reduce the deficit.
“Middle-class families shouldn’t pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires,” he said. “It’s hard to argue against that.”
Mr Obama suggested a “Buffett rule”, which would see Americans who earn more than $1m pay the same rate of tax as those who earn less.
The proposal refers to billionaire financier Warren Buffett, who has complained that he and his wealthy peers pay relatively less tax than the people who work for them.
Many high-income Americans benefit from tax loopholes that see earnings on investment taxed at lower rates than wages.
On Sunday Republican Paul Ryan, chairman of the House budget committee and a proponent of deep cuts and no tax rises, described Mr Obama’s plans as “class warfare”.
The president referenced Mr Ryan’s criticism on Monday, justified his tax-and-cut package by saying simply: “It’s not class warfare, it’s math.”
So how much impact would the Buffett rule have on either the debt or the deficit? The White House refused to say.
But for the moment, the White House wants to keep the attention focused on Obama’s argument that it’s unfair to tax Buffett’s secretary at a higher rate than her boss

The 2012 Tea Party Middle Class Manifesto
Dear US Government,
We the people have survived the worst downturn since the great depression, and we want to let you know that we have a deal for you.
For the past few years, we watched what happens when debts aren’t paid, and we know from painful experience how devastating the effects are on our communities and families. It does not matter if you are from the left or right, the result is the same. The people will suffer and our government will drive away in a Wall Street limo.
And so, we the American people are giving our contract to you, President Obama and every member of Congress from both parties, so you know where we stand.
We know that all sides in the debt dispute are full of hot rhetoric and lies. You are politicians, so we do not trust anything you say. You know that you can make sure our country pays its debts, even if that means we must continue to suffer at the hands of our incompetent government.Read More http://www.teapartyb.../manifesto/tpbs

The sad part is that most of the sane have recognized the hatred of America and the Marxist in Obama for a long time.
Since he was being probed over "Uncle" Frank Marshall's knee?
That would explain a lot about the manly-less Barry.
