Joe The Plumber Figures It Out...When Will You?

I just received this Spotlight(email) from written by Scott Wheeler Executive Director of the National Republican Trust PAC there was more to it but here is the gist:

"Obama Lie No. 1 — I will tax just the rich.
There is no such thing as a tax on just the rich. Taxes on wealthy people affect everyone.
Remember, Obama defines anyone making over $90,000 a year as "rich."
Joe the plumber discovered that Obama thinks Joe's rich too. Under Obama, he won't be able to hire new employees and grow his business.
Joe's not alone. Obama says he'll strip away the FICA cap at $90,000 for every worker. That means every dollar you earn over that amount, you'll pay 7 percent!

Obama Lie No. 2 — I want to give a tax cut to the middle class.
Obama says he will let the Bush tax cuts expire. That's an automatic 5 percent (maximum) tax increase on almost all taxpayers.
Plus middle class folks pay capital gains taxes. Obama has said he wants to almost double them from a low of 15 percent to almost 30 percent.
He wants to hike the dividend tax, and he also has promised taxes on gas and energy.
Obama also wants to dramatically increase the estate tax, which had almost disappeared. There goes your idea of sharing your wealth with your kids in the future.

Obama Lie No. 3 — I want to make America more secure.
Another outright lie.
In an age when crazies like Iran 's Ahmadinejad are building ballistic missiles and promise to "destroy" the United States and Israel , Obama has promised to gut the missile defense program created by President Reagan.
"I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems," Obama said.
He has promised to cut "tens of billions" of dollars from the Defense Department. In an effort to make us more "secure," Obama plans to disarm us.
In the age of 9/11 can we afford such a radical Leftist in the White House?
No, we can't. "

He goes on to say that:

"Obama is not just a danger to our economy, with his plans to raise taxes and spend $800 billion in new programs.
He is a radical out to reshape America beyond recognition.
He is so radical he even backed driver's licenses for illegal aliens — even though such a move would help future terrorists move freely in the United States .
Even Hillary Clinton opposed his radical plan.
But Obama not only touted such a plan running for president, he pushed for giving illegals driver's licenses as a state senator in Illinois .
He is also the most pro-abortion candidate in the history of the country. In 2001, as a state legislator in Illinois , he opposed a bill to protect live-born children — children actually born alive! He was the only Illinois senator to speak out against the bill. "

If you are thinking that you still don't give a rat's azz about any of this because you don't make anywhere near $90,000 per year and you are happy to get a tax credit, tax cut who cares what it's called as long as you get a check during tax season -- be forewarned all that glitters isn't gold. Is an extra $300-$500 really worth the layoffs, hiring freezes, and higher prices which will extend well beyond the tax season? Leona Hemsley (the billionairist) once said "Wealthy people don't pay taxes" she's right -- the proletariats (working class folks- aka YOU) do. As for those of you who surmise that the economy is already in the toilet and think that it can't getting any worse -- I submit that it can and will get much, much worse!!! Check out
to see for yourself just how bad inflation and unemployment can get when we have a democratic POTUS.

Thanks for looking at the Misery Index (the inflation rate added to the unemployment rate) is the most accurate guide to gauging the temperature ("how the economy is treating the average American") of the economy.

We are now closing in on 16 straight years of SINGLE DIGIT Misery Indexes, with the lowest in over 40 years occuring when Newt Gingrich ruled Congress.

Keep an eye on this's what undid Jimmy Carter and what may well undo Barack Obama.

They are, in fact, "birds of a liberal feather."
