What is he thinking??

Obama and others are trying to get around Congress to pass a law that would tax how much energy we all use, they are trying to find a government agency that would allow this to happen. Better pray they do not succeed!!! They like the $4 per gallon for gas, and the idea of raising our energy bill even higher. For farmers that would mean higher bills for them and then it would pass to us at the grocery store. What are they trying to do; you wouldn't be able to afford a second job, because you would use gas in getting there. Your family wouldn't be able to survive in those conditions. So then everyone would be filing for PA, (gasp!, not me)even those who now judge those who are on it. You would file for it if it meant keeping your childrens' bellies filled.

  • Also where does Obama get off, going to the NATO heads and apologizing for the oppression America has incurred during previous leaderships. What oppression? Nowhere does it say that the "justice for all" mentioned in the pledge of allegiance is only for Americans!!!! What about his plan to raise the energy taxes on the citizens under his care- isn't that oppression? I think while there is a great risk of terrorists from other countries attacking America; there may be just as much of one from America on Americans as well.

  • Just a quick question, will the Obamas have to pay taxes during these next 4 yrs or are they exempt, not really sure how that worked?

  • Obama is ruining America and he doesn't care. He is a socialist and feels that government is in control not us. What he needs to realize is that he works for us and so does congress. We are the employer they are the employees who are stealing us blind.

  • Obama pays taxes only on his income for his term. But consider he as President has no living expenses, he pays no bills as President.
    Nor can he see where his money is saved or invested, it goes into a blind trust and he won't know how wealthy or poor he is until he leaves office.
