“O.8% economic ‘growth’ it is banking on for next year?”

This is our future if Barack Obama is re-elected. France’s Socialist Government is set to impose a 75% tax on businesses and “the rich” as a way to prop up their cradle-to-grave Government nanny state. We are headed down the same road with Obama.

REUTERS: President Francois Hollande’s Socialist government unveiled sharp tax hikes on business and the rich on Friday in a 2013 budget aimed at showing France has the fiscal rigor to remain at the core of the euro zone. . . .

But with record unemployment and a barrage of data pointing to economic stagnation, there are fears the deficit target will slip as France falls short of the modest 0.8 percent economic growth rate on which it is banking for next year. . . .

“This is a fighting budget to get the country back on the rails,” Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said, adding that the 0.8 percent growth target was “realistic and ambitious”. . . .

Business will be hit with measures including a cut in the amount of loan interest which is tax-deductible and the cutting of an existing tax break on capital gains from certain share sales – moves worth around four billion and two billion euros each.

“The government is impeding investment and so will block innovation,” Entrepreneurs Club head Guillaume Cairou said of the preference for raising taxes rather than cutting spending.

“France is sick because of the model it has … but is choosing to preserve it.” . . . Read More

America’s Future under a 2nd Obama Term? Socialists in France Set to Impose 75% Tax on Businesses and “the Rich”

What a disaster for France.

Today, French voters elected Socialist Party Candidate Francois Hollande as their new President, rejecting the austerity measures of President Nicolas Sarkozy designed to deal with France’s crippling debt. Instead, they have embraced Hollande, who advocates tax and spend policies that sock it to the rich – as if that is going to turn the French Economy around. What he is advocating sounds a lot like what we are hearing from Barack Obama. Let’s hope America makes a better choice than France just did.

WASHINGTON POST: Francois Hollande, a moderate Socialist with an easy smile, was elected president of France on Sunday, exit polls showed, narrowly defeating the incumbent, Nicolas Sarkozy, a conservative whose five-year term was undermined by Europe’s economic crisis and his combative personality.

The Socialist triumph, in a two-man runoff vote, was put at about 52 to 48 percent by several usually reliable polls. Sarkozy conceded defeat Sunday evening, and said he had called Hollande to wish him luck.

The outcome turned Sarkozy into the latest political leader to fall victim to the European economic implosion of the past four years. Widely predicted, his loss put him in the tracks of leaders in such neighbors as Spain, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Britain who have been voted out of power at least in part because they were identified with hard times for Western Europe’s traditionally comfortable economies. . . .

UPDATE: Hollande has not even taken power yet, and his Socialist policies are already set to make a great deal of wealth leave the country.
