From the AP comes this story:
WASHINGTON (AP) - House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday that tax increases will eventually be necessary to address the nation's mounting debt, raising a difficult election-year issue as Democrats fight retain control of Congress.
Unbelievable, isn't it? Who would have guessed that at some point, someone would have to pay for the gross negligence and malfeasance that has been thrust upon the American people by their elected officials? Just because Obama and Congress have been openly conspiring to overspend us into oblivion, why can anyone say he/she is surprised?
This is what they said they would do, this is what Obama told Joe the Plumber. They are making good on their promises.
In fact, most everyone who frequents this joint has always believed that Obama and his imperial rubber stamping legislature would raise taxes to pay for their power-drunken spending spree. We all saw it coming and we clearly said so, time and time again..... both here and in other forums.
But the naive dreamers (who thought we were a bunch of bigoted and paranoid right-wingers) did not believe us. They did not think that big time liberals would take our money, disregard our wishes, and thumb their noses while doing it. They thought we were delusional.
So to anyone who stumbles across this blog and fits this specific description, I have a question for you:
Can you hear us now?
