You Lie! Obama “agnostic” On Raising Taxes For Those Who Earn Over $250,000

On the campaign trial, Obama repeatedly made the promise that nobody making less than $250,ooo would see their taxes go up “a single dime.”   Now he’s backing off the promise.  Shocka.

President Obama says he will be “agnostic” about whatever his reduce-the-federal-debt commission recommends — including the idea of higher taxes for households making less than $250,000 a year.  

“What I want to do is to be completely agnostic in terms of solutions,” Obama told Bloomberg Business Week in interview excerpts released today. “I want everybody to sit down and work off of a common base of facts.”

 The question dealt specifically with households making less than $250,000; Obama promised during his presidential campaign not to raise taxes on that group.

Read my lips, Barry:  YOU LIE!

Bill Clinton Admitted To Hospital With Chest Pains

He underwent a procedure and it looks like he is going to be fine. 

“Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest. Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries. President Clinton is in good spirits, and will continue to focus on the work of his Foundation and Haiti’s relief and long-term recovery efforts. In 2004, President Clinton underwent a successful quadruple bypass operation to free four blocked arteries.”

Of course the Huffington Post won’t have to shut down comments like they did when Dick Cheney underwent a similar procedure.
