Most here are too young to remember but George #41 was known for the phrase, “Read my lips, no new taxes.” Well, he was always fighting an uphill battle with a Democrat Congress and they had him stalled, back to the wall. He finally agreed to new taxes if, and only if, Congress would cut spending by a particular amount - a lot. They signed the agreement. The new taxes were put in place with the cuts to follow. Only the dishonest Dems lied (again) and had no intention to follow their agreement with #41. Cuts were never made and they hung that phrase around his neck like an anchor thrown into the sea -”Read my lips, no new taxes.” #41 was finished in the world of politics.

And then Barry came along and promised no new taxes OF ANY KIND to anyone making over $250,000 a year....

and then proceeded to pass ObamaCare...a gigantic TAX...especially on the middle class.

Funny how those double-standards work, eh?
