Overreaching Internet Sales Tax Is Obama’s Calculated Deception Of Gullible Voters

During the 2008 campaign, when candidate Obama was seeking our votes, he pledged in Dover, New Hampshire on Sept. 12, 2008:

“I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”

During a nationally televised Vice-Presidential debate in St. Louis on Oct. 3, 2008, candidate Biden repeated the pledge:

“No one making less than $250,000 under Barack Obama’s plan will see one single penny of their tax raised whether it’s their capital gains tax, their income tax, investment tax, any tax.”

Once elected, in an address to a joint session of Congress on Feb. 24, 2009, President Obama restated the promise yet again:

“If your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.”

But now before the Senate is the so-called Marketplace Fairness Act, which would authorize each state to force sellers in other states to collect and pay sales taxes on anything they sell over the Internet to anyone in any other state. The seller may operate exclusively in Hawaii, and not own or operate any property, or employ any workers, in any other state. But it would be liable for the sales taxes in every one of the other 49 states for anything it sells over the Internet in any of those states.

    Doesn’t say to much about someone when the majority of that someone’s voters are considered gullible and ignorant by that same someone.

    Barrack Obama will sign this bill if it is ever passed in a Heart Beat so he can get more money to spend on more Pipe Dreams he has and is Obsessed with throwing more money at anything he thinks will make him look good. Obama does not have even one single financial adviser anywhere in his administration that is capable of giving him any good advise but Obama would never take anyones advise no matter how good or bad it is unless it was one of his boondoggles and scams he comes up with. Barrack Obama’s main desire is to make the United States into another third world country but he is to stupid to see that he is doing it jest like he has done with all of the corporations that he has funded that have filed for Bankruptcy less than a year after he gave them so many Millions of Dollars but it was not his money he gave away it was the tax payers money so he could care less because it is not his money he plays craps with.
