Something I heard at work yesterday and I can't find info on it anywhere.

While I was at work yesterday, one of the other employees and I were talking about politics. Neither of us are fond of our commander in chief and we talk about his antics a lot. She told me that Obama is trying to take HALF of every Americans pay in taxes. She said if a person makes over 30 thousand a year they would be taxed half of that. Now even though I am not a fan of his, I find this really hard to believe. Has anyone else heard this? Or at least anything close to this? I have searched everything I can think of and find nothing. Thanks

The extent of American ignorance continues to amaze me

I've never heard this.  And I think if it really were true....everyone would know about it.

It wouldn't be able to be done without the approval of congress.

It always makes me laugh to hear people say its ALL the presidents fault (regardless of who the president is) when the President cannot act alone.

But it wouldn't surprise me if it was attempted.  26.7% of our income went to taxes last year (no that does NOT include Social Security) and we made 78,000
