Next on the Obamanation agenda: Tax hikes for the middle class confirmed by Geithner


Don't tell me you actually thought Obama "would not raise taxes on the middle class"?

Little Timmy Tu-Tu spills the beans.

"Then Stephanopoulos asked: 'The president has said that taxes won't go up for any Americans earning under $250,000. But it doesn't appear he's going to be able to keep that promise if you're going to bring the deficits down.'

'George, again,' said Geithner, 'we can't make these judgments yet about exactly what it's going to take and how we're going to get there. But the very important thing, and no one is going to care about this more than the president of the United States, is for people to understand that we do not have a choice as a country. That if we want an economy that's going to grow in the future, people have to understand we have to bring those deficits down. And it's going to be difficult, hard for us to do. And the path to that is through health care reform. But that's necessary but not sufficient. We're going to do some other things as well.'

Stephanopoulos then tried to get Geithner to rule out a tax increase, which Geithner would not do.

'So revenues are on the table as well?' asked Stephanopoulos.

'Again, we're not at the point yet where we're going to make a judgment about what it's going to take,' said Geithner.

'But you're not ruling it out. You can't rule it out,' said Stephanopoulos.

'Well, I think that what the country needs to do is understand we're going to have to do what it takes,' said Geithner. 'We're going to do what's necessary.' "

Notice how Timmy repeats the lie that Obamacare is going to bring the deficits down?

The Obamanation scenario is clear: The "Rich" and seniors will pay for Obamacare, and the middle class will pay for deficit reduction.

Future Obamanation lies will be forthcoming as necessary, cloaked as "policy adjustments".

Got it....

And, of course, all the above does not include any discussion about who will bear the burden for Cap 'n Trade, or the costs of imminent illegal immigrant amnesty benefit package, or the reparations scam that's sure to come along sometime in the future.
