My Fellow Americans, this is only a small part of the Obamanation of Desolation! More and different kinds of taxes are coming if you elect Obama.

These tax cuts were designed to help the rich, the middle class, and the poor. By not extending them or letting them expire, Obama is raising taxes for everyone! Vote against all tax increases and against Obama and his henchmen!

Vote for John McCain!
