Obama Says Patriotic Americans Are Willing to Pay Higher Taxes


President Obama just loves those “patriotic” Americans who want their taxes raised. I guess he believes those of us who think we already pay enough are unpatriotic. He said that Bill Clinton brought about prosperity by raising taxes and then used his typical collective argument to make the case for higher taxes again.

“We created a whole lot of millionaires to boot.  Businesses did just fine,” he insisted as the crowd applauded. “And you know there are plenty of patriotic, successful Americans all across the country — I meet them every day — who’d be willing to make this contribution again because they understand there is such a thing as the common good.  They understand that we’re in this thing together.”

I wonder how understanding and patriotic they will be when Taxmaggedon hits.
