Spreading a Wealth of Lies 2

October 28, 2008

As a follow-up to my previous post, here are Palin’s statements in Des Moines. Let us count the lies together.

See, under a big government, more tax agenda, what you thought was yours would really start belonging to somebody else, to everybody else1. If you thought your income, your property, your inventory, your investments were, were yours, they would really collectively belong to everybody2. Obama, Barack Obama has an ideological commitment to higher taxes, and I say this based on his record… Higher taxes, more government, misusing the power to tax leads to government moving into the role of some believing that government then has to take care of us3. And government kind of moving into the role as the other half of our family, making decisions for us4.

1 Only workers making over $250,000 face the possibility of higher taxes under Obama’s plan. 95% of workers will see a reduction or no increase of their federal income taxes. That is an undeniable fact.
2 Nowhere does Obama propose taking money from one person and giving it to another. As I explained previously, he is proposing a tax credit to workers for income and payroll taxes that they pay. All workers pay the payroll tax, so no one is getting someone else’s money: Obama is giving people back money that they themselves paid. This is probably Palin’s biggest lie. She goes so far as to suggest Obama’s going to come in with his gummint goons and take your furniture and silverware to give to “other” people.
3 Where in Obama’s record has he misused the power to tax? Nowhere. And guess what? His current tax plan calls for LOWER OR THE SAME TAXES for everyone not making more than $250,000 a year. For those making more than $250,000, they’ll see tax rates that they had in the 90s.
4 Oh no, it’s Married to the Government. But where is government making decisions for families? By giving families tax credits, Obama is giving them a choice to spend or save that money.

It seems that Palin is completely unable to make a statement without lying.

    Obviously you are one of those people who never bothered to listen to interiews and speaches given by the Kenyan Muslim. The $250,000 figure went all the way down to $150,000 and back up to $250,000 a couple of times so who knows what idiot and his handmaidens in Congress will come up with.

    And, again, not listening to what the Kenyan had to say, I reckon you missed his little conversation with Joe the Plummer.

    Guy, you really do need to get some education on the issues and get informed. Chris and Kieth just don’t cut the mustard with your schooling.

    Cowboy, you really make yourself look stupid when you insult people, especially when you are ignorant of the facts as you demonstrate. You don’t even cite the fiction from the rightwing media to support your claim. Go ahead. Give us one quote of Obama saying he’d raise taxes on incomes less than $250,000. You can’t.

    As for Samuel’s discussion with Obama, I heard it, but unlike you, I understood it. Read the transcript (aloud, if that helps you) and point out where he said he’d raise taxes on incomes less than $250,000.
