Tax Me More Please

At some point, the people will revolt...

I repeat that this is EXACTLY what I thought would happen... Now I am certain... These guys have no clue that this type of tax increase will paralyze the economy...

From ABC's Sr. WH Correspondent Jake Tapper...

President Obama's budget proposes $989 billion in new taxes over the course
of the next 10 years, starting fiscal year 2011, most of which are tax increases
on individuals.
1) On people making more than $250,000.
