READ MY LIPS----- $315 BILLION IN HEALTHCARE TAXES, MANDATES, PRISON TIME & PUBLIC OPTION !!!




• OBAMA: “And If You're A Family Making Less Than $250,000 A Year, My Plan Won't Raise Your Taxes One Penny -- not your income taxes, not your payroll taxes, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.” (Barack Obama, Remarks, Orlando, FL, 8/3/08)


• OBAMA: “You Will Not See Any Of Your Taxes Increase One Single Dime.” “And if you make less than $250,000 -- if you make less than $250,000 a year, you will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime.” (Sen. Obama, Remarks At A Campaign Event, Espanola, NM, 9/18/08)


• OBAMA: “No Family Making Less Than $250,000 Will See Their Taxes Increase.” “And I can make a firm pledge: under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 will see their taxes increase – not your income taxes, not your payroll taxes, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.” (Barack Obama, Remarks, Dover, NH, 9/12/08)



President Obama has already broken his tax promise. On April 1, cigarette taxes went up. Certainly many people who smoke make less than $250,000. Obama's signature put into effect a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack.



  • 55 percent of smokers are "working poor."

  • One in four smokers live below the poverty line.


President Obama is already denying Merriam Webster's Dictionary as to what a “tax” is. And here I thought Bill Clinton’s deposition was absurd and comical. Clinton debated what the definition of “is” is.



President Obama refuting the dictionary takes the cake. Maybe President Obama wants to deny the exact text of the Senate Finance Committee Bill also? It reads: “The consequence for not maintaining insurance would be an excise tax.”



You think the cigarette tax is a broken tax pledge just read below and discover what Senate Democrats have in store for Americans!!!!
