Obama's selling but Americans aren't buying
Obama's poll numbers tanked this week.
Maybe some people are tuning out not only Obama but the media's attempt to make him look the adult in the debt ceiling debate. Class warfare gets tiring after a while.
Obama and the MSM will never say it, but the health reform act increases taxes on people Obama regards as rich to the tune of 50 billion a year at the start and over a 100 billion a year within 5 years. The calls for sacrifice by the high earners ignore this totally.
These tax increases and the cuts in Medicare (which will be largely illusory) are to pay for a massive entitlement expansion: 100 billion a year to start, over 200 billion within 5 years, and multiples of that if Rand study on companies which will drop insurance, proves accurate. And most of the cost is for a new middle class entitlement, not for the poor, or those with pre-existing conditions.
