Obama and the Democrats have an insatiable appetite for more money out of the pockets of Americans. Despite having just raised taxes, Jay Carney makes it clear what we already knew – they have just begun to raise taxes. As Charles Krauthammer put it, “We have just begun to tax and to spend.”

Here is Chrarles Krauthammer’s take on Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi’s attitude on higher taxes and spending – “with apologies to John Paul Jones.”

For those who may not remember, John Paul Jones famously said during the American Revolution, “I have not yet begun to fight,” when being pressed to surrender to the British.

Here is an ABC News report today on the “Taxmageddon” Showdown that looms ahead between President Obama, who wants to raise taxes, and the Republican Congress that wants no increase in tax rates. The report points out that the Congressional Budget Office estimates that President Obama’s desire to raise taxes on the wealthy could cost 200,000 jobs – something others say is “digestible.”

On his plane yesterday, Vice-President Joe Biden reportedly talk with the press on board and told them that Barack Obama’s two-point victory over Mitt Romney is a “clear sort-of mandate” to raise taxes:

WEEKLY STANDARD: “Well look, I think — You guys have probably looked at the internals of the vote more than I have so far,” said Biden. “But from what it appears is that, on the issue of the tax issue, there was a clear, a clear sort of mandate about people coming much closer to our view about how to deal with tax policy. I think we can move, I’d like to see us, I think we can do something on corporate taxes sooner than later. That would be positive, be a little confidence-building. And you know I just think it’s going to take time for the Republicans to sort of digest what the consequences for them internally. But i just think there’s too much, I’ve been saying to you all along and I know I may be the only guy – well, I think Clinton shares this view, President Clinton, we talked about it. But I think the fever will break. And you know, Barack’s re-elected so this sort of cause to keep a second term from happening’s done. He’s there for four years. So I think there’s going to be – I hope there’s going to be some real soul-searching about, on Republican Party, about what they’re willing to cooperate on.” . . . Read More

“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”

Here is video of President Barack Obama today proposing an extension of the Bush Tax Cuts for people making under $250,000 a year, but allowing them to expire for anyone making more. Obama would raise taxes on the income range that includes many small business owners, despite the weak economy and dismal jobs numbers. Republicans would leave the tax cuts in place for everyone, and some of Obama’s Democrat allies want the tax cuts extended for everyone making up to $1 million a year.

What else do you expect from Joe Biden?

Here is video from Fox & Friends this morning where Stuart Varney blasted Vice-President Joe Biden as “inaccurate, misleading, and irresponsible” for attacking Mitt Romney and his economic plan, dubbing the so-called “Buffet Rule,” that would make the evil rich pay their “fair share,” the “Romney Rule.” In actuality, Varney said Obama’s class warfare plan to soak the rich would not even scratch the surface of dealing with America’s debt problem, while Romney’s plan would lower overall tax rates but eliminate many loopholes that would bring in far more money to the U.S. Treasury. Not to mention, Romney’s economic plan would get the economy moving again, generating more revenue for business and more tax revenue for the Government.

The perfect slogan for Obama’s 2012 Presidential Campaign!

Here is video of a man at President Obama’s Town Hall Meeting today asking him, “Would you please raise my taxes?” Obama said he “appreciates the man’s sentiment.”

What a setup. This guy should be the national spokesman for Obama’s Re-Election Drive.

Weasel Zippers has the lowdown on the man who wants his taxes raised.

Here is video of Pat Buchanan on Morning Joe today where he said it would be “suicidal” for Republicans to give ground to Obama and the Democrats and agree to tax increases as part of a deal to raise the Debt Ceiling. Buchanan took on the entire panel who kept pleading with him that Republicans had to give ground and agree to some kind of “revenue enhancements” – code for raising taxes – in exchange for spending cuts. But Buchanan said it is not going to happen. He said he believes, in the end, “Obama will fold. . . . He will fold,” because he is “staring down the gun barrel of default.”

Buchanan said Republicans won’t agree to tax increases not only because of politics, but because of “principle”:

“Philosophically, they don’t believe you raise taxes when you got 9% unemployment. It’s not only politics, it is principle and philosophy. They think it’s the wrong way to go.”

Here is video of Donald Trump speaking in Nashua, New Hampshire tonight to a group of business owners, where he warned that if President Obama is re-elected, “I think your taxes are going to go through the roof.” Trump said he believes Obama is holding back on tax increases right now because of the upcoming election. But if Obama is re-elected, he will not have to worry about being elected again, and taxes will “go to a level we have not seen in a long time.”

Trump praised the killing of Osama Bin Laden, but reminded his listeners that without “enhanced interrogation” – which Trump then called “torture” – the U.S. would not have found and killed Bin Laden. Trump seemed comfortable with just using the word “torture,” because he said the 9/11 victims whom he “watched jump off the World Trade Center – that was torture.”
