$3 Trillion in Higher Taxes?

Obama has outdone himself!

Oct. 30, 2013

Our friends at Heritage Foundation released a study showing that Barack Obama has, despite his frequent promises not to do so, raised taxes on a whole lot of Americans. Curtis Dubay writes, “Obama has already raised taxes substantially twice – first as part of Obamacare and then as part of the ‘fiscal cliff’ deal earlier this year. Together, those increases raised taxes by more than $1.3 trillion over 10 years. Including the payroll tax increase that was also part of the fiscal cliff deal, taxes have risen by almost $3 trillion during President Obama’s tenure.” Check out “13 Tax Increases in 2013.” And keep ‘em in mind for the next round of budget negotiations!
