Most Voters Don’t Believe President’s Assertions (January 30, 2010)

Has your taxes been cut? Are you better off today than 6 years ago? I would have to agree that jobs have been cut in the millions but taxes…where? Has prices gone up, I would have to say yes. So knowing all this how could anyone in their right mind support Obama and his socialist agenda?

The president in the speech declared that his administration has cut taxes for 95% of Americans. He even chided Republicans for not applauding on that point. However, just 21% of voters nationwide believe that taxes have been cut for 95% of Americans. Most (53%) say it has not happened, and 26% are not sure. Other polling shows that nearly half the nation’s voters expect their own taxes to go up during the Obama years. SOURCE

Overlooked in coverage of Tim Geithner’s and Tom Daschle’s unpaid taxes is the $70,000 that Minnesota Democratic senatorial candidate Al Franken has admitted to owing in back taxes, interest, and penalties.

Last April, the California Tax Franchise Board revealed that Franken owed the state $5,800 in taxes, fines, and penalties because he did not file returns in 2003 through 2007. Franken then admitted that he owed more than $50,000 in back taxes to 17 states.

On top of failing to pay taxes in 17 states, the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board hit Franken’s corporation with a $25,000 penalty for failing to carry worker’s compensation insurance for his employees in New York. Yet Franken ran as an advocate of middle-class voters. Read More

Another one blaming everyone else and not knowing!  How many of these “I didn’t know” have we heard now. I guess the old saying works best and that is if you get caught never amit to anything.
