Stop the MSM from Pressuring Congress!!! We should not sit back and let the Main Stream Media continue "campaigning" for Obama!!! The lies: We want to give tax breaks to the 98% of Americans. Obama has a mandate to raise taxes on the wealthy.
We can make a difference. History shows they had to back down some when we apply pressure via blogs and notifying conservative news outlets and hosts otherwise they look like fools or continue to appear even more untrustworthy which we know they are. We can't have the kind of news outlets that dictatorship countries have.
Obama says he has a mandate to raise taxes. Two recent polling firms (Gallup was one) polled voters and they said they are not in favor of raising taxes and they are in favor of cutting spending.
The media is spreading the lie that we would help 98% of the people from getting taxes raised. It's a lie. It's not 98% and includes all small businesses (employers). Tax them and we have job losses. If the economy tanks even more (Obamacare alone is forcing small businesses to cut hours), the House will be blamed NOT Obama. The perception created by the media just prior to the presidential election is that Bush was responsible for the bad economy. So you can bet that if the tax rates go up on all businesses and the economy tanks even more because Dems refuse to cut spending (tax more spend more; US Treasurer says no caps on debt ceiling) it will be blamed on Congress NOT Obama!!!!
The House wants to modify the tax structure to get of loop holes that affect employees more so that small businesses. They have small businesses and jobs kept in mine.
It's the Dem's that are not willing to budge. They want the tax hike now and "claim" they will look at spending cuts later (like never; just like they always did). The tax hike is the ONLY thing Congress has as a bargaining chip. Give them what they will not do anything for Congress later.
The media wants us to believe that it's Congress who is not budging when in reality if you read what the Dems are saying they only want the hike and nothing else.
Please email your conservative news stations. We need the truth out. We should not let the media dominate the news. We should call them out and let a number of people (even on our side) know what the truth is. Trust me, some of them are still clueless and let the media rule their decisions some.
If we could stop the Media from lying Zer0 would never have been elected.
I think the biggest fly in the ointment that no one in the MSM is talking about is the Payroll Tax that Obama slashed. The only funding that goes into Social Security was slashed 23% (employee contribution)by “The One”
...and no one is talking about it
The Payroll Tax cut represents 2% of most everyone’s pay.
Tack 2% increase on top of the ‘fiscal cliff’ and you got Thelma & Louise velocity.
Why isn’t anyone talking about it?
You might as well try stopping dogs from sucking eggs.
Stop the Media from Lying About (insert just about anything here).....
Good luck with that.
...or stop the sun from rising in the east.
