Obama and Taxes

"I can make a firm pledge.  Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."

Barack Obama, Dover, N.H., on Sept. 12, 2008


"Listen now.  I will cut taxes—cut taxes—for 95 percent of all working families, because, in an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle class."

Barack Obama, Nomination Speech, Denver, CO, August 28, 2008


"No one making less than $250,000 under Barack Obama's plan will see one single penny of their tax raised. whether it's their capital gains tax, their income tax, investment tax, any tax."

Joe Biden, Vice Presidential Debate


"Now in office, Obama, who stopped smoking but has admitted he slips now and then, signed a law raising the tobacco tax nearly 62 cents on a pack of cigarettes, to $1.01." April 1, 2009 (Day 51 of the Obama Administration)

Thanks for the advice about my mom. I just talked to her to make sure she is getting something in writing and it's supposed to be faxed over here tomorrow.

I miss when this blog used to be about poker, or photography or traveling. Perhaps you should change the title of the blog, and remove these items:

Just a thought.
