After spending over a year demanding tax rate hikes on evil "millionaires and billionaires," on Saturday Barack Obama got what he least wanted from House Speaker John Boehner: an offer to raise tax rates on millionaires and billionaires. Just millionaires and billionaires.
And apparently, Barry has flatly rejected the offer because he actually wants to tax "billionaires" who make around $200,000 a year - which is approximately $999,800,000 less than a billion bucks.
Actual millionaire Obama says that raising taxes only on the millionaires and billionaires he's been bitching about won't actually raise enough money to substantially reduce the deficit, which is surely true since his plan to raise taxes on the top 2% of earners already wouldn't substantially reduce his nightmarish deficit. It would, however, kill tens of thousands of jobs - so the president would be able to add more dependents to his government plantation.
Boehner surely knew that Obama wouldn't agree to raising taxes on only "millionaires and billionaires," and perhaps made the offer simply hoping that the president would STFU on that phrase and finally say that he's really demanding a massive small business tax.
Barry will never admit it, of course. Nor will the MSM call him on his hypocrisy.
But we can dream.
Your million dollar bank accounts? You didn't build that.
