Obama Already Changing Tunes On Taxes!!

The Obama campaign is already changing their tune on taxes. First Obama said those making less than $250K would get a tax cut, then last week he said those making less than $200K would get the tax cut and then yesterday in Pennsylvania, Biden said only the middle-class, those that make less than $150K a year would see tax cuts. Get the idea? You can't trust this guy. He can say what he wants but I think its pretty obvious where he wants to go with this. He made it clear when he said he wants to "spread the wealth around". Redistribution of wealth is from Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto! I don't know about you but that's not exactly the direction I want to see my country go.

Did you see that when McCain pointed out that Obama's "tax cuts" are actually "welfare" not tax cuts because under Obama's plan people would actually receive checks in the mail from the taxes paid by others, even though they didn't pay any taxes at all. Obama decided to change his plan a bit and added a "work requirement" for the bottom 2% that would be receiving those checks. I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to receive a check in the mail that I didn't ask for and then be told I have to go to work for it. Especially since his tax policies are job killers so where are these folks that don't want jobs to begin with going to find jobs that Obama killed?

It is pretty obvious that Obama is creating a "class-war" here even though the average American, I believe, wants to know that if they work hard and succeed, they won't be punished for it. Obama will push American businesses in Exodus for more business friendly environments. AKA-Overseas!

Gaffe-prone Joe Biden put his foot in his mouth again yesterday, mistakenly excluding millions of Americans from his running mate's tax-cut proposal.

The Delaware senator's latest blunder came while discussing Republican tax policies during a television interview in his hometown of Scranton, Pa.

"What we're saying is, that $87 billion tax break doesn't need to go to people making an average of $1.4 million," Biden said.

"It should go to middle-class people, people who make $150,000 a year."

Actually, Barack Obama has promised to cut taxes on households earning less than $200,000 a year while raising taxes on those who make more than $250,000 annually.

John McCain quickly cashed in on the slip.

During a rally in Hershey, Pa., McCain told supporters the gaffe revealed the Democrats' true tax-and-spend intentions.

"It's interesting how their definition of 'rich' has a way of creeping down," McCain said.

"Senator Obama has made a lot of promises. First, he said people making less than $250,000 would benefit from his plan.

"Then, this weekend, he announced in an ad that if you're a family making less than $200,000 you'll benefit - but yesterday right here in Pennsylvania, Senator Biden said tax relief should only go to 'middle-class people' - people making under $150,000 a year.

"At this rate, it won't be long before Senator Obama is right back to his vote that Americans making just $42,000 a year should get a tax increase.

"We can't let that happen," McCain added.

The Republican nominee has pounded Obama on taxes recently as economic woes have come to dominate the political debate.

Biden's tax faux pas provided a new distraction for Obama as he tried to focus on broad, uplifting themes, like "change" and "hope," in the final week of swing-state stumping.

Obama campaign spokesman Tommy Vietor issued a statement that corrected the vice-presidential candidate without explicitly saying so.

"No family making less than $250,000 will see their tax increases one cent," Vietor said. "And if your family makes less than $200,000 - as 95 percent of workers and their families do - you'll get a tax cut."

Vietor went on to call McCain's attack on Biden "desperate."

"Maybe the McCain campaign keeps lying about Obama's tax plan because with seven days left in this election, voters are rejecting McCain's plan to give billions more in tax giveaways to big corporations and the wealthiest Americans," he said.

Also during the stop in Hershey, McCain took a moment to shrug off reports of discord between his campaign staff and his running mate, Sarah Palin.

"By the way, when two mavericks join up, we don't agree on everything," McCain said. "But that's a lot of fun! It's wonderful to fool the pundits." With Post Wire Services
