Obama: Romney going to raise taxes on everyone else by thousands of dollars to pay for huge millionaire tax cuts

Obama told a crowd in Ohio today that Romney wants to give the top 1/10th of the top one percent huge tax cuts that would raises taxes on everyone else by $2,000. Seriously, he’s really trying to paint Romney as an evil rich bastard trying to enrich himself and his richy rich friends on the backs of everyone else. I mean, why doesn’t Obama just call Romney “Ebeneezer Scrooge” and get it over with?

I know it’s painful, but you really should watch all 3 minutes of this clip:

Outside of the lies about Romney raising taxes on everyone else to pay for millionaire tax cuts, there is another huge problem with this clip and the Weekly Standard has the details:

The president is right, up to a point: The study was not written by an Obama staffer, but by a former Obama staffer–and a close ally.

The study, titled “On The Distributional Effects Of Base-Broadening Income Tax Reform,” was written by Samuel Brown, William Gale, and Adam Looney.

As Looney’s biography page at the Brookings Institution states, “Looney was the senior economist for public finance and tax policy with the President’s Council of Economic Advisers and has been an economist at the Federal Reserve Board.”

As for Gale, another coauthor, he’s in favor of tax hikes and another stimulus. “As the debate over the so-called fiscal cliff and its potential effects continues in policy and political circles, it just may be the case that the U.S. economy will be set on a better path, says Brookings Institution senior fellow William Gale. … And for good measure, tie in a temporary fiscal stimulus, he says. Enacting a payroll tax cut or government spending on infrastructure will have a stronger impact on the economy than the Bush tax cuts, Gale argues,” according to the Washington Post.

Obama is citing as non-partisan and independent a study by leftists who believe exactly like he does. And their analysis is bunk anyway because tax cuts on business owners, which I’m not even sure if Romney is proposing, creates wealth and raises more revenue for the government. It doesn’t cost the taxpayers money.

It’s ridiculous how low he’s brought the office of the presidency. His constant lies, spin, and propaganda hang like a dark cloud over this great nation and I can’t wait for the day this socialist is defeated.

  • The liberals drag this old canard every election cycle.We’ve seen this movie before.We’re still not buying it.

  • Joe

    Sorry – I can’t watch this

    I started to – then I had a sudden urge to go to the restroom

    GEE – The same thing happens when I see one of his commercials

    I wonder what’s going on?

    • WATCH IT

      • Joe

        OK – Since you insist in BOLD

        I will –

        BUT – I have to get some more TP later

        This man makes me sick!

        • haha I understand. You might need a bucket while you are at it.

          • Joe

            You beat me to it

        • Joe

          Now – I’m throwing up!

          Can’t do it –

          I can’t wait another 97 days

          I’ll be dehydrated

      • MaroonRepublic

        I couldn’t watch it either. It’s chick-fil-a day and Cruz won big so I want to keep my sunny outlook for as long as I can.

    • Joe sounds like your having the same symptoms as most Americans, I thicked we call it Obamamouthingasonitis fatigue, use the bucket throw the Charmin, the cure is November.

  • Nukeman60

    I got as far as, “Now, despite the evidence…” and I shut it down. I’m having a pretty good day today. I won’t waste it on a run to the porcelin bus to throw up. But, I got the drift (Thanks to Scoop, we don’t always have to listen to the diatribe).

    98 days and counting. Tick-tock, tick-tock.

    • We need to give Obama a pink slip so he doesn’t have to pay so much in taxes.

      • Nukeman60

        I haven’t seen his taxes. I heard rumors that he hasn’t paid them in 10 years, although I can’t be certain. 🙂

        • You tell the funniest stories Uncle Harry. LOL!

        • Sandra123456

          I want to see 10 years of Barry’s tax returns if not 20.

          • Nukeman60

            I’m not sure he was paying anything back when he was snortin’ and tokin’. After that, in Chicago, you would have to go to the ‘laundromat’ to find his cash. And it’s been political money ever since (which is clean as a whistle, as we all know). 🙂

            Mooch had a job………once.

          • Just to be sure we Americans get the full scoop on obama, let’s demand 27 years of obamas tax records, it should answer most questions about obamavillage concepts.
            But I think we already know the real nasty obama.

    • williamm

      He should have started out, ” Despite the evidence, I’m going to stand here and tell another whopper because you sheeple will believe anything I say. ”

  • I think I just fainted….

    • Joe

      That’s why the people in audience faint

      They all get sick

      Now I get it!

  • Nukeman60

    Thomas Sowell had a good article describing just who the 1%ers really are. It’s typical for socialists like Obama to berate them, but he has no clue who they are.


    • 12grace

      Great link, thank you.

  • daisybud

    This is one narcissistic, pathelogical liar. The fools sitting behind him are a bunch of toothless, brainless idiots. These are the type of peple who would follow Jim Jones to their own death. How were so many people so fooled by this monster. If the polls are correct (and I know many of them have a democrat edge), too many people are still oblivious to truth and are still supporting this lying clown!!!

  • donmoffet

    I appreciate the offer but I can’t stand to listen to this liar who is our president. Isn’t that pitiful? I should be interested in what he has to say but I simply can’t stand to listen to him.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    I’m with Joe (below). I can’t watch it either. I just had lunch and I don’t want to puke all over my keyboard due to a bunch of lies that the Liar-in-Chief is surely telling his followers. Sorry, I’m not buying into anything he has to say; not a word of his BS.

  • WordsFailMe

    The man is an imbecile.

  • Sandra123456

    The economy is not static. Just because a rich person’s taxes are lowered doesn’t mean the poor will have to pay what the rich guy didn’t.

    If I work overtime this week and earn $200 more than normal that doesn’t mean some where other workers have to give up $200 so I can get mine. Money is not finite or static.

    All people should pay taxes even if it is only $5 a year. We should enact a flat tax to shut up the tax envy crowd and for the good of the country.

    This country has a spending problem not a revenue problem. Blah, blah etc.

    I listened to the whole 3 minutes. It’s off to bath I go.

  • welltempered2

    Twenty years ago liberal Democrat Paul Tsongas said “Democrats love jobs but hate the people that create jobes.” The beat goes on.

  • notebene

    Can’t stomach watching the imposter in chief lie once again. Funny how the imposter isn’t owning up to how his Odumbocare will be funded on the broken backs of the middle class! He’s so worried about the 1%, but he raped the 99% with the taxes hidden in his healthcare plan! Romney had better start pointing that out from the rooftops! Free healthcare ain’t free! The middle class is under attack more than anyone else from this administration! If we don’t do something we will be like all the banana republic’s we visit…big resorts, pitifully surrounded by slums with a few millionare Democrat mansions thrown in for good measure.

  • marketcomp

    Is this a joke! I am sorry RS I cannot take listening to the lies any longer. Ok, so this is fear mongering! Whatever they are going to do to the citizen they turn it around and say that’s what republicans want to do to you. Democrats always infer. This is lunacy on parade!

  • proudhispanicconservative

    If you do research on the biggest tyrants of the world you realize that our president sounds exactly like them, they lie, deceive, and throw propaganda and hope they stick to the people that are not paying attention. I just hope people will see right through it.
    Romney should go on attack everytime Obama lies call him out on it, and see if he continues to lie.

  • Don

    Racial hatred, war on women, class warfare, and so it goes over and over and over since the beginning of time. It is the very same hate and vitriole every election. The mainstream media is constantly brainwashing every single day with these same lies and deceptions. If this country falls for this same garbage again, then we will deserve what we surely will get. The corrupt attack on our way of life has been tough, but you haven’t seen anything yet.

    • sDee

      Worse then fallen for it, for each narrative (and more) that you mention we have actually allowed our political class to create legislation to institutionalize it.

      If a politician is avoid facts or not telling the truth, and not promising to dramatically shrink the size and funding of the Central Government, and to repeal major legislation and regulations on a massive scale, it is safe to assume they will do more of the same.

      • WordsFailMe

        Ergo Obama Anatis Est

        • NYGino

          Something along the lines of…..Therefore Obama is a parasite.

          • WordsFailMe

            Pretty loose on that “Anatis” translation but I like it! I was afraid you were going to tell me it meant octopus.

    No, he is!! He’s a foolish man – but not stupid – he gives himself an A for a reason.

  • MaroonRepublic

    Let’s say this is all true. Huge leap I know. Even if the Nancy Pelosi’s of the country received a tax break, why would everyone else see their taxes go up?

    I’m sure the crowd behind him can really use those commie propaganda forward signs to beg for change on the street corner later.

  • kong1967

    What a jackass. He’s adding things on the plan that just aren’t there. Since Romney’s proposing a tax break, then the assumption is that he will tax people of lesser income to make up the money (and it’s presented as if Romney said it himself).

    Liberals totally ignore the laffer curve and figure data in a vacuum. If the revenues are at 100 and they triple the taxes, the revenues will be at 300… or if they raise it by tenfold it will be 1,000. If Romney gives a tax break of 100 then the revenues are automatically 100 short.

    They never think about the fact that excessive taxation and regulations strangle businesses and success….and it chokes the growth of wealth which can be taxed It forces people to hide their money, put it in overseas accounts so it can’t be touched, or to just not invest it at all. Overtaxation reduces revenues to the treasury. Easing of overtaxation increases revenues to the treasury. The blind N.Y. governor found out the hard way. He gave an interview saying that they raised taxes so they could get more revenue but it resulted in a massive lower input into the treasury.

    Obama, get your freaking boots off the necks of the people that create jobs and create wealth that increases the revenues into the treasury every time they grow more wealth. How’s your plan working for you, you stupid moron!

    • keyesforpres

      His goal is to get rid of the middle class.

      • kong1967

        Ugh. I think you’re right.

  • sDee

    Cutting through all the campaign rhetoric, we are borrowing 4 of every 10 dollars we spend. We have an unprecedented direct debt exceeding 15 trillion dollars, and unfunded liabilities that dwarf those.

    Yet neither candidate has actually talks about how they really intend to respond to that situation. Given that is clear neither plans to half or third the size of the government, realistically what choices to we have?

  • Sober_Thinking

    I said it before: These liberal, lying bastards project onto the Right, the sins that they themselves are most guilty of.

    Obama is a pathological liar. Any of these people who believe this crap and still support him ought to have their right to vote revoked. This is the MOST unPresidential President this nation has EVER had. I pray he goes down in history as the worst President ever in our nation’s history… at least we’d get a little truth that way.

    Man, once again, I just want to cuss at his arrogant lying!

    • p m

      Only taxpayers and those on a work pension should get the vote.

    obama community agitator

    obama’s class war, he appeals to the poor minority people’s bias toward successful people that earned their money and aggravates the minority people, into a hateful, frenzy. The reality is that obama doesn’t care at all about the minority people they are pawns in his collapse America scheme.

    I refer again to Joel Gilberts documentary “obama’s Real Father”

      I have a copy of the movie and the book “The Communist” by Paul Kengor. I would highly recommend both of them, as it gets to the roots of why Obama is the way he is.

        Thank You, I will get the book, you mentioned.

          I have just watched this, plus the other speakers at that conference. If you haven’t watched them, they’re all here. For me, all of the pieces have fallen into place. http://www.usasurvival.org/ck07.28.12.html

          I loved Gilbert’s mass-mailout-I wonder if a copy will get delivered to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave?????

            Thank you for the link, L1. I am looking forward to watching this conference.

            About Joel Gilbert, he is a patriot and I think we must support him in getting the word out.

            • Linky1

              Yes he is and hopefully, he will get lots of financial help to get the word out.

  • sjmom

    It wasn’t easy but I made it through the entire obfuscation and only because you, RS, told me to watch all 3 min. Usually, I last about 20 sec because even his voice, to say nothing of the lies, is soooooooooooooo irritating.

    Just more lies and there will be more lies and again more lies because Obama wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked him in the face. Guess that’s what happens after awhile; you begin to believe the lies you utter. I didn’t trust Obama before he was elected and don’t trust him now.

  • guppymanster

    Obama is a socialist liar and his speeches are similiar to those that you’d expect from Adolph Hitler. That sounds terrible but it’s much worse when you consider the fact that it’s true. He demeans the office of the president everyday for his selfish goals and tarnishes the executive branch like a thrid world dictator.

    • 12grace

      My family comes from a Communist country and we have heard these kind of speeches many times before….it is excruciating to hear those evil speeches in America and to know what comes after the speeches.

      We love “Precious America” and can’t bear the stupidity of the masses here that think that Communism is favorable to a Capitalist Democratic Republic.

      A reminder:
      Mao Zedong (49-78 million deaths)
      Jozef Stalin (23 million deaths)
      Adolf Hitler (17 million deaths)


      Museum of Communism

      Americans have been raised on anti-Communist propaganda. Isn’t there really a need to balance out this one-sided treatment, rather than reinforce it as your Museum does?

      I love their response to this question.

      To the contrary, an overwhelming majority of Americans know nothing about the millions murdered by Communism. They may have heard of the 1956 invasion of Hungary, or of Czechoslovakia in 1968, or the Berlin Wall, or the Tiananmen Square massacre. They may have seen spy movies, or even the Rambo trilogy. But only a tiny minority know that Stalin and Mao both killed more people than Hitler did. Knowledge of the greatest crimes of the 20th-century ought to be universal, or at least a basic requirement of culturally literacy. The resurgence of Nazism has undoubtedly been curtailed by an energetic educational effort to tell the world about Hitler’s crimes. It would be a tragedy if Communism passed away without burning a single message into conscience of the world: “Never again.”

      No apologies are necessary for the “one-sidedness” of the Museum’s focus. A movement that deliberately kills millions of innocent people can possess only one side.

  • kcast2011

    Can someone seriously explain how a tax cut somehow means a tax increase for everyone else. If you cut taxes isn’t assumed that the government is going to cut spending? In 2004 and 2005 the government brought in the most revenue from taxes ever and that was under the Bush tax cuts. I really need an explanation for this because I simply don’t understand how giving money back to people is somehow a tax increase on them.

  • WestGAFlash

    I’m still trying to figure out how to “pay for tax cuts” works, when 47% of W-2 earners pay ZERO federal income tax.

    Silly me. That’s just Clintonspeak. What does “is” mean?

  • cheyennecowboy

    The problem is all those poor bastards collecting SS and welfare, AND those rich bastards like Romney WHO DON’T PAY TAXES….It is just us middle class fools supporting this whole mess
