Obama won't take your dime. He'll be taking your dollars. Lots of 'em.

The Obamessiah, earlier this week:

Now, let me be clear. Let me be absolutely clear, because I know you'll end up hearing some of the same claims that rolling back these tax breaks means a massive tax increase on the American people. If your family earns less than $250,000 a year, a quarter-million dollars a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.
Nobel laureate Paul Krugman says: "No way"

And even if fundamental health care reform brings costs under control, I at least find it hard to see how the federal government can meet its long-term obligations without some tax increases on the middle class.
But then we all knew that was coming.

Extra - Mankiw on the White House's "way too optimistic" assumptions.

"Nobel laureate" Krugman is a joke, his alleged math is complete B.S., he's just a shill for discredited policies... what? He what? He said something against Obama? CITE THAT SUMBITCH, BABY! LINK IT, LINK IT!

He also said the stimulus was a "very good plan" so he's crazy again.

Be-jebus, Eric... You guys got a pill to help 'Sumbitch' return to reality?

Nope?

Oh well....

My advice to you is to start drinking heavily. said...

Reality is that thing that's been jumping up and down on your neck for the last two years, Cranky Anonymous. Ignore the persistent laughter; he's just happy to be back in charge again.

But a disciplined regimen of pill-popping may get you through these next 4/8/12 years.

I just think it's funny that Anonymous is offering his opinion about reality while having a back-and-forth conversation with himself.

Don't you think that's strange? Well, not necessarily. Oh, I do. The way I see it, it's just bitter rhetoric, that's all. Hey, will you two shut up already?
