Fisher of Men - Obama
Thursday, February 11, 2010
Obama and his team are clever in their presentation, because the middle-class quickly forgets this little factoid: It’s YOUR money he is using as an incentive!
What are the overtures—the bait—Obama uses to fishhook middle-class Americans? According to this report from ABC news, one of the incentives Obama is offering is a tax incentive on child care. Big whoop.
These days the average “working American” now works through August for the government. At this rate, why not just turn the kids over to the government, and let the government raise them! I'm sure the media won't mind!
This tax incentive essentially rebates part of YOUR money, but is limited to people who make less than $115,000—about two seconds of interest on the national debt. To ignorant people, $115K sounds like a lot of money. I assure you this is not much money for a family of four, particularly when those kids get to college age.
The bigger picture is that here again, Obama is setting the hook on what is rich and what is not. And more than $115K is apparently rich. That’s not even Paris Hilton's purse budget for a month!
