“If you are a family making less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes go up. Not your capital gains tax, not your payroll tax, not your income tax, no taxes. Your taxes will not go up.”
I must not understanding this. He says if you make less than $250,000 a year, you will not see ANY TYPE OF TAX increase. But then what is this? The federal government has now passed a new $.62 per pack cigarette tax. Which Obama did not veto. I think that does counts as a tax. And according to a national gallop poll, only 12% of smokers make more than $90,000. And statistics also show that the more money you make, the less likely you are a smoker.
This tax will hit more people making less than $250,000 a year than those making over $250,000 a year.
Does anyone really believe that this tax will really go to Child Health Care? And the current Child Health Care plan being debated says a Child is anyone under 30 years old. Just another example that the Federal Government thinks its citizens are to immature to take care of themselves, when they classify a child to be anyone under 30.
