The Fun Has Begun!!

White House press secretary Jay Carney said the president would bring to the table a proposal for $1.6 trillion in new taxes on business and the wealthy when he begins discussions with congressional Republicans, a figure that Obama outlined in his most recent budget plan. The targeted revenue is twice the amount Obama discussed with Republican leaders during debt talks during the summer of 2011.

    Elections have consequences. I’m willing to bet that those who voted to bring this man into power for a second term– many whose motivation was jealousy, vengeance, or a pipedream of living in a socialist paradise– are going to suffer the most when even more jobs evaporate as the job creators give up or relocate. Wealth and intelligence are mobile; those who possess either or both have a good chance of weathering the coming storm. The rest risk falling into the cracks they just helped widen. They’d better pray that charitable contributions remain tax exempt, as poverty strikes the uneducated classes hardest.
