A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Perspective

Posted by Godefroi on October 21, 2008

While Obama has stated ad nauseam that he will reduce taxes fo 95% of the good American folk like me, he’s also stressed repeated that he will let the Bush Tax Cuts expire, which means that in 2010 we’ll be partying like it’s 2000.

What will your taxes look like under the Obama administration?  Moneychimp can give you a clue.

First, 2008:

Now, 2000 (2010):

The rundown:

  • If you make less than $16,050, your taxes will INCREASE by 50%
  • From $16,050 to $43,850, No change
  • From $43,850 to $65,100, your taxes will INCREASE by 87%
  • From $65,100 to $105, 950, your taxes will INCREASE by 12%
  • From $105, 950 to $131,450, your taxes will INCREASE by 24%
  • From $131,450 to $161,450, your taxes will INCREASE by 11%
  • From $161,450 to $200,300, your taxes will INCREASE by 29%
  • From $200,300 to $288,350, your taxes will INCREASE by 9%
  • From $288,350 to $357,700, your taxes will INCREASE by 20%
  • Higher than $357,700, your taxes will INCREASE by 13%

Now, I understand that the tax bracket and the actual tax due is not the same, but the picture is still pretty clear.  Don’t you think?

  1. Godefroi,

    Yup, that certainly was an eye-opener for me as well!

    What really burns me up is the incessant Obama ads on TV that outright LIE and tells everyone that Obama will “lower” your taxes!

    And, you know most Americans aren’t going to get on the Web and discover that their taxes are REALLY going to increase under Obama’s thumb…

    If Obama gets elected, Lord help us all…

    Cheers,

    BTW – Your comments on my website accidentally got stuffed into the automatic SPAM queue. I’ve pulled them out. Sorry about that.

    I am the ONLY source of Obama info (of the truthful kind) that most of my friends have. It’s thoroughly disheartening how so many truly intelligent folk will just swallow whatever the MSM, and Obama himself (He’s said – insert inanity. He wouldn’t lie!”) has to say.

    I’ve had that auto-spam issue at a few other places now too. I wonder if it’s something with the IP I usually comment from.

    My best to you and yours.
