It has been proven many times. Tax cuts and lower taxes stimulate the economy resulting in higher revenue for the Treasury. Why in the world would Obama want to increase taxes resulting in a slowdown of the economy and less revenue for the Treasury? Maybe I am wrong, but I truly believe the worst thing we could do right now is increase taxes during a struggling economy. I am going to pull an Ice and ask people to stay on topic if possible. Liberal or conservative, I want to hear both sides.
