The conservative Republican and Tea Party activist in Seattle writes: "Back in 2009, President Obama stated that raising taxes during a recession is the last thing you would want to do. The economy is even more unstable and fragile now than it was then. Which begs the question....what will truly be accomplished by raising taxes on high income earners? For an answer to this question, one only needs to turn to the answer that then candidate Obama gave during a debate between Democrat[ic] candidates for president in 2008. When reminded of the fact that raising capital gains taxes has historically resulted in decreased revenue while the lowering of it resulted in increased revenue, Obama’s response left many perplexed. He stated, 'It’s not about revenue; it’s about fairness.'"
She also slams House Speaker John Boehner for compromising on taxes: "We must not forget that response by the man who would become president as it gives tremendous insight into his view of taxation. Regardless of what he states now, it is not about deficit reduction nor is it about increased revenue. In fact, it is not even about fairness because we have 47% of the population that pays no income tax. It is about control, government intrusion, and furthering his class warfare ideology that’s rooted in Marxism. That, my friends, is a dangerous thing and the GOP must stand strong against it."
