Obama tweets ‘a promise kept — to make our tax system fairer’; Citizens say ‘you lie’

https://twitter.com/BarackObama/status/288299016393990145

Oh, my. That was tweeted unironically by President Obama’s Twitter account. Nearly the same thing was also tweeted last night.

https://twitter.com/BarackObama/status/288088560425390080

Like President Obama himself, those running his Twitter feed seem to be under the impression that if you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes true. Well, citizens are here to put the kibosh on that shameful theory.

Indeed. Obama’s Twitter feed must not have received the smaller paycheck memo; have they not been paid (less) yet? We are givers, so we will help them out. Take a gander at the voters’ remorse due to diminishing paychecks.

The rightful calling out continues.

And, “fairer?”

This Twitter user puts it all in a nutshell.

Embrace the power of “and.”

  • Sakemoto

    In Obama’s warped world-view, “fairness” is when everyone is broke and on food stamps except for his wealthy friends. More “fairness:” Obama and his family on a 20 million dollar vacation and millions on a permanent vacation from employment.

    • http://twitter.com/Sincerly_oo Sincerely —

      Yes. The truth is that he actually did make it “fairer,” more of the 50% of Americans that paid no taxes last year will be hit in the pocket book this year.

      The lie is that they don’t even have the sincerity to admit what it is and try to spin it as “helping” the poor by making them pay more. And the deluded actually buy it.

      Besides the tax increases and the increase in insurance costs, grocery prices have really climbed in the past couple of years as well. Which is another big hit to the working poor. I really haven’t seen that fact discussed in the media at all

      • Sakemoto

        Find me on GretaWife on “Open Threads Blog.” You’re a keeper!

  • Snap N McGarrett

    Obama promised to raise taxes ONLY on “the rich”. In the footnotes (or nuances, if you wish), the Democrat definition of “the rich” is “anyone who earns more than you do”. Logically, that means virtually everyone, so he did indeed keep his promise.

    Carry on suckas!

  • GaryTheBrave

    Remember early on in this administration when the UE compensation went to 99 weeks? Those collecting called it a “playcation.” After 99 weeks they’d get a job. Except there were no jobs, at least not paying as much as UE.

    Now these same people fell for the “tax da rich” hyperbole and they are finding that it doesn’t work that way. I hope they all reproduce. Maybe the idiocy will skip a generation.

    I’d really like to know how the lefties can justify saying that making one group pay a larger percentage of their income in taxes is “fair.”

    • $24698634

      You might want to talk to Congress about that as they write the tax code.

      • Soco Steve

        Hold on, the tweet says “President Obama promised to make our tax system fairer. He delivered” – so who did it, congress or Obama?

    I guess by “fairer”, he meant making everyone pay more. If so, promise kept.

    I pay 15%, you pay 15%, they pay 15%. That’s a fair tax system. Increasing, “progressive” tax rates are by their very nature not fair. What a complete dumb ass this ass-clown is. How the f%$k did he get elected again?

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

      yes. everyone paying the same percentage.
      and no deductions for anyone.
      IMO all the progressive system has ever done is foment jealousy.

      • JustLikeAnimals

        Absolutely! No deductions. No loopholes. No credits.
        Just a one page form:

        Total earnings: $80,000

        Total tax (15%) $12,000

        Total withheld: $12,592

        Your payment/(refund):: $ (592)

        So easy, a dumb-ass President could do it!

    The only way taxes will ever be fair is if everyone is taxed the same flat percentage, regardless of income. Most Dems I know are against this, however.

    You folks don’t get the point. The term “Fair” is a political definition. It is totally devoid of all meaning other than some people make too much income in the eyes of the Dimwitcratic Party. Fair share has been around since at least the late 70’s, and is attributed to Dick Gephart, another loser of a left wing politician. Like most
    Dem Speak, one has to translate the BS to get to the real meaning.

        Kelly,
        Well, you make a *fair* point. If O. were anyone else, then his tweets *would* be ignored. But given his influence on the swinish multitude, it is incumbent (if tedious and distracting) upon conservatives to keep an eye on him.

        Principled conservatives monitor the Left the same way that parents keep their eye on child abusers, and for the same reason…

    I’m willing to pay more tax if it means they will fix this road in front of my house. Or, heck, maybe I can just hire some workers and pay them directly. Cut out the middle man.

  • aztectrumpet

    It’s fairer because him and Congress get more of our money…

  • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.dean.564 Lisa Dean

    It would be even “more fairer” for me to have extra money in my paycheck from lack of increased taxes, Obamacare taxes and the increases in my medical out of pocket expenses. Then I could spend more in my community and pay more local and state taxes (to fix items such as roads) and increase revenue for local businesses in order to hire more employees.

    The President has been consistently running on a platform of redistribution and bigger government since 2008. I am not sure why 51% of the population did not believe him, however, it is only going to get worse. Time to demand from the government transparency on how they spend the money “We” give them today. In every business I have been a part of we seek positive ROI on every dollar spent. Additionally, we look to reduce our fixed costs each year. Why is this not a mandate in the government?
