Are you aware that people on the right agree taxes are currently lower?
Bruce Bartlett, a fiscal conservative and columnist for Forbes who worked in the George W Bush and Reagan administrations is shocked by what he sees happening on the right these days.
He reports that the Tea Parties have turned the world around. Tea Partiers yelling about taxes are delusional, he writes. They know nothing about taxes.
Bartlett was executive director of the Joint Economic Committee of Congress and Deputy Assistant Secretary for economic policy at the U.S. Treas Dept. In Mar. he wrote: “Fed taxes are very considerably lower by every measure since Obama became president…. and last year’s stimulus bill, enacted with no Republican support, reduced federal taxes by almost $100 billion in 2009 and another $222 billion this year.”

OP-the list of complaints goes way beyond the taxes. It's a belief that Obama is trying to fundamentally change the country to meet his own agenda (4 year utopia?). Any how, the complaints/issues are endless. Wonder who the GOP is priming as the eternal savior? Maybe Underdog?
