President Obama Meet President Obama
Just moments ago, President Obama gave a speech urging Congress to extend the payroll tax cut for another year by hiking taxes on job creators. What’s funny about this speech (aside from the claim it wasn’t political) is that the President claimed that “we’re not fully out of the recession yet.” See the video!
Curious thing, that claim. Because in 2009 (and when he was campaigning), the President said that “we shouldn’t raise taxes on anyone in a recession.”
So you don’t raise taxes on anyone during a recession, unless you can use a certain class as a political foil?
