Exposing Obama’s Imaginary Cuts

Posted by Brian Garst on October 26, 2010

Richard Rahn writes at the Washington Times:

How many times have you heard the president and the congressional Democrats say Americans who make less than $200,000 a year have not had, and will not have, any of their taxes increased? Unfortunately, it is not true, and it is likely to become a whole lot worse.

The 111th Congress has already enacted $352 billion in net tax increases and may, in the upcoming lame-duck session, enact the largest tax increases in history, which will hit every man, woman and child – as well as every business in America.

…The tax increase of $725.7 billion dwarfs the tax cuts of $373 billion, leaving a net tax increase of $352 billion. But it gets worse. Just $107.6 billion of the tax cuts are permanent – the rest are temporary – but all of the $725.7 billion increases are permanent.
