Barack Obama the candidate repeatedly vowed no tax increases for those making under $250,000. As president, he has changed his tune. But cheer up: He now tells us he's a "fierce" free marketer.
So instead of cutting taxes, opening markets through free trade and scrapping the failed 2009 stimulus package before the last $500 million gets squandered, he'll probably end up squeezing the middle class in exactly the way he said he wouldn't.

i wish they'd end income taxes since they can't be fair about it. Just do sales tax and make it higher so that everyone who spends money will pay. There is a lot of illegal under the table money that goes uncounted. These people still buy stuff though.
