Democrats are great at messaging a pro-Democrat media, and there’s no better example than the oft-heard phrase, “the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.”
How many times have you heard reporters repeat that Democrat talking term?
Even Fox News’ Chris Wallace managed to fall for the brainwashing. He used the term during his interrogation of Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan on Sunday.
The Bush tax cuts weren’t just for the wealthy. Anyone who files a return should know that.
Now the Associated Press is letting you know there’s a “huge” tax increase that won’t just affect the wealthy—that’s if those “Bush tax cuts for the wealthy” expire.
Here’s the AP lead:
A typical middle-income family making $40,000 to $64,000 a year could see its taxes go up by $2,000 next year if lawmakers fail to renew a lengthy roster of tax cuts set to expire at the end of the year, according to a new report Monday.
The marriage penalty will also return. President George W. Bush was the only president to address that outrage.
The AP cites the Left’s new standard bearer on tax policy, the Tax Policy Center, a group that issued a study Democrats relied on to make false claims about GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s tax policy.
If you want real nonpartisan tax information, go to the real experts at the Tax Foundation. The Tax Foundation has been crunching policy numbers since 1937.
President Barack Obama’s solution was to lower payroll taxes—certainly not a good idea considering all those federal IOUs in the Social Security Trust Fund.
Next time you hear Obama say those Bush tax cuts were “for the wealthy,” make a mental note. You’re hearing a false claim that is pure Leftwing propaganda.
If Obama gets reelected, enjoy your tax increase if you pay.
If your family earns $40,000 a year, though, you can celebrate. Obama and his fellow Democrats apparently classify you as “wealthy.”
