    Isn’t this rich that after selling yet another line-of-shit to the Obamabots he is changing colors faster than a chameleon in a hot frying pan after getting elected!

    I said it before and will say it again = Suckers! :rofl:

    Obama may delay tax-cut rollback for wealthy - Yahoo! News

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President-elect Barack Obama may consider delaying a campaign promise - to roll back tax cuts on high-income Americans - as part of his economic recovery strategy, two aides said on Sunday.

    David Axelrod, the Obama campaign strategist who was chosen to be a senior White House adviser, was asked if the tax cuts could be allowed to expire on schedule after tax year 2010 rather than being rolled back by legislation earlier. "Those considerations will be made," he said on "Fox News Sunday."

    Bill Daley, an adviser to Obama and commerce secretary under former President Bill Clinton, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the 2010 scenario "looks more likely than not."

    President George W. Bush's tax cuts are set to expire at the end of 2010. After that they would revert to 2001 levels, when the top individual tax rate was 39.6 percent.

    Obama has called for reducing taxes for the middle class, but requiring the wealthiest Americans to pay more than the current top rate of 35 percent.

    His aides' comments suggest Obama may be wary of imposing any additional tax burden at a time of deep crisis, despite the outlook for record budget deficits and mounting national debt. He may also be seeking to bolster Republican support for his recovery measures.

    "The main thing right now is to get this economic recovery package on the road, to get money in the pockets of the middle class, to get these projects going, to get America working again, and that's where we're going to be focused in January," Axelrod said.

    Obama said on Saturday he was crafting an aggressive two-year stimulus plan to revive the economy, aiming to save 2.5 million jobs by January 2011 through projects including transportation infrastructure, school modernization and alternative energy.

    Obama called in October for a $175 billion stimulus measure, but he suggested he was ready to push for a much larger package.

    U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat who is part of the majority leadership team in the Senate, told ABC's "This Week" that an economic recovery package between $500 billion and $700 billion is needed and could be ready by the time Obama takes office on January 20.

    "I think it has to be deep. In my view it has to be between five and seven hundred billion dollars," Schumer said.

    This would be a wise move. Increasing taxes on anybody at this crossroads would be ridiculous.

    So far its speculation. By the way, the title of the Thread and what is presented don't seem to match.

    Of course. Anyone with the IQ of a gnat can see the difference between "I'll wait until next year to do this", and "I won't ever do this".

    And of course anybody with the IQ of gnat excrement knew raising taxes on anybody during a Democratic lead economic meltdown was a bad idea during the campaign …. which doesn’t say much for the Bots that bought the snake oil saying different from a two-bit shyster, let alone electing him. Suckers! :wink:

    Just when you think Sarah Palin is the only stupid person talked about on this forum, we see that someone has failed to learn the difference between "may" and "will".

    Another thing to add to 1BiGG1's long list of epic failures.

    Sit back, watch, and learn as what you are seeing is classic “this is how it’s done” i.e. they sell you a line-of-shit, get elected, then they break reality to you slowly with “may”, then they “do”

    You know, like Obama stating lobbyists and Clintons were out-of-the-question then filling his possible (there’s still hope the lack of domestic birth will bring him down) administration with them after he got elected :wink:

    The irony is that if Obama ran a truthful campaign, detailing what he was ACTUALLY going to to, hell even I would have voted for him!

    The double-irony is that if he did, he would have lost the election.

    So, wait, conservatives are now bashing Obama because he isn't going to start his administration with a tax increase on the rich? Ok, now, conservatives want Obama to tax the rich. Check. Although, I could swear that taxing the rich is what bothered conservatives before? Hmmm. Oh, I get it, conservatives feel that Obama has lied to the people who supported him because he promised to tax the rich and now he's "never" going to do that? But there's no report that Obama won't raise the taxes on the rich (which the conservatives now love), he's just not going to do as his first act.

    Conservatives are very hard to please or understand it seems. It would seem that Obama will get around to taxing the rich all in good time and then Democrats can be happy that he's followed through on his economic plan and conservatives can be happy because he's followed through on his plan. Whewwww! Patience people, he's only been President-elect for 2 weeks.

    Hell yes tax them. Every developed country in the world has a progressive tax system.
    The new data also shows that the top 300,000 Americans collectively enjoyed almost as much income as the bottom 150 million Americans. Per person, the top group received 440 times as much as the average person in the bottom half earned, nearly doubling the gap from 1980.

    They didn't while they were still developing. Not by today's standards.

    The only thing that could get you to vote for Obama would be if he was on the republican ticket.

    I agree. Big, you're post is misleading and based on speculation and hearsay. Wait until he actually takes office befor you start evaluating his policies.
