I'm not sure if this has ever been posted but here it is nonetheless!!


**Dear Company Employees,**

As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact
that Barrack Obama is our President and that our taxes and
government fees will increase in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase
by about 10%.

But since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal
state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead.

This has really been bothering me, since I believe we are family
here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go.

So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and
found sixty 'Obama' bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have
decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of
amore fair way to approach this problem. Since they voted for
change, this is the change that was mandated, so I gave it to them.


I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

With the exception of the 'major legal ramifications' that would soon follow, they got what they wanted: "change," It may not be the "change" they were expecting but Hell, they got "change!"

Watch the interest rates- especially the mortgage interest rates! Inflation is just beginning to poke its ugly head out of the dirt pile!!

I don't smoke but this is a huge tax increase.

"I can make a firm pledge," he said in Dover, N.H., on Sept. 12. "Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."

He repeatedly vowed "you will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime."

Now in office, Obama, who stopped smoking but has admitted he slips now and then, signed a law raising the tobacco tax nearly 62 cents on a pack of cigarettes, to $1.01. Other tobacco products saw similarly steep increases.

When my son was in a restaurant last fall his waitress was going on and on about Obama and how great he will be for this country.

My son got tired of hearing her say over and over how good the "change: will be to all the poor folks and the Rich will get what they have coming to them.

When she handed him his check, He asked her if she really believe all that crap she was spewing to her patrons and she said she did.

"Well" he said " This 20% tip that you usually earn is now going to go out the door to that homeless fellow sitting outside. See you're rich because you have a job, he's the POOR man who is going to get everything."

She tried to say "that's not fair". And he said "don't blame me, you're voting for him, I'm not and gave the $5.00 to the guy sitting on the sidewalk.

Republicans Raise Taxes on Millions of Middle Class Families and Businesses by Blocking Democratic Proposal to Extend Tax Cuts


September 26, 2006

"That's one way of saying they're going to raise your taxes because, you see, if you don't extend the tax cuts, your taxes go up." (President Bush, 9/21/06)



These were President Bush’s words at a campaign event last Thursday as he emphasized the importance of extending tax cuts. The fact is, his own party in Congress is blocking a Democratic proposal to immediately extend tax cuts for millions of middle class families and businesses. Republicans allowed these tax cuts to expire and precluded their extension in the May tax reconciliation bill so as to make room for expensive capital gains and dividends tax breaks within the limited reconciliation amounts. At the time, they promised the Republican Chairman on the Finance Committee that extenders would be included in the next tax vehicle. However, Republicans yanked the tax cuts again when Congress passed pension reform legislation in August so as to use them as a sweetener for controversial estate tax cuts. Republicans continue to block Democratic efforts to vote on the tax extenders. In the past two weeks alone, Senate Democrats sought unanimous consent three times for the immediate passage of the “extender package,” a range of tax benefits that includes the college tuition tax deduction, the state and local sales tax deduction, and the R&D tax credit. Each time Democrats proposed legislation to pass these tax cuts that help middle class families, educators, and businesses, the Republican majority in the Senate refused and repeatedly asked that their objection be heard. The objection of Washington Republicans to immediately extending these tax cuts has indeed been heard, and millions of Americans will pay the price.



DEMOCRATS PROPOSED IMMEDIATE PASSAGE OF TAX EXTENDERS THREE TIMES; REPUBLICANS OBJECTED EACH TIME



Senator Baucus, Ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, proposed immediate passage of the tax cuts. Mr. Baucus: “Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the Senate proceed to Calendar No. 326, H.R. 4096; that the Senate adopt my amendment that is at the desk, the substance of which is the agreed-upon tax extender package; that the bill be read a third time and passed…” (Congressional Record, 9/13/06, S9491)



Majority Leader Frist objected to extending the tax cuts. Mr. Frist: “Reserving the right to object…I object.” The Presiding Officer: “Objection has been heard.” (Congressional Record, 9/13/06, S9491)



Senator Baucus proposed extending the tax cuts a second time. Mr. Baucus: “Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the Senate proceed to Calendar No. 326, H.R. 4096; that the Senate adopt my amendments Nos. 5003 and 5004, which is the agreed-upon tax extenders package…” (Congressional Record, 9/14/06, S9590)



Republican Senator Collins objected to the tax extenders package on behalf of Majority Leader Frist. Ms. Collins: “Mr. President, on behalf of the leader, I object. The leader objected yesterday. This is the same issue. He has asked I make his objection known.” The Presiding Officer: “The objection is heard.” (Congressional Record, 9/14/06, S9590)



Senator Baucus proposed extending the tax cuts a third time. Mr. Baucus: “I am again asking my colleagues to support my unanimous consent request to pass the negotiated tax extenders…I repeat, Mr. President, before the Chair in his role as a Senator objects, because he has been instructed to do so by the majority party, I think it is extremely irresponsible for this body not to enact these extenders right away…” (Congressional Record, 9/20/06, S9754)



Republican Senator DeMint objected to extending the tax cuts. Mr. DeMint: “In my capacity as a Senator from South Carolina, I object.” (Congressional Record, 9/20/06, S9754)





DEMOCRATS URGED IMMEDIATE PASSAGE OF TAX EXTENDERS



Senator Reid urged for the opportunity to vote on passing tax extenders. “If we had an opportunity to vote on these it would be virtually unanimous, Democrats and Republicans, but we are not provided the ability to vote on this.” (Congressional Record, 9/20/06, S9754)



Senator Lincoln warned taxes will be raised if extenders are not passed. “[T]here is no reason these extenders should be held hostage to all of these other things that people want to crowd into one basket. The bottom line is, by failing to renew these incentives, as Senator Baucus has said, for responsible behavior such as savings and getting a college education, we are raising the taxes on many of our hard-working American families this year.” (Congressional Record, 9/14/06, S9589)



Senator Nelson (NE) supported immediate passage of tax extenders. “I rise to state I support what Senator Baucus has proposed. It affects a number of Nebraska teachers and Nebraska families.” (Congressional Record, 9/14/06, S9590)





REPUBLICANS HOLDING MIDDLE CLASS TAX RELIEF HOSTAGE TO WEALTHY SPECIAL INTERESTS



“This summer, Republican leaders in both chambers used the tax break extensions to help build support in the Senate for the three-part measure (H.R. 5970) that also included a permanent reduction in the estate tax and an increase in the minimum wage.” (CQ Today, 9/22/06)



Republican Senator Gregg says middle class tax cuts needed as hostage for Republican strategy to protect tax cuts for the wealthy. “[I]f you don't kill the hostage, there's no threat.” (Wall Street Journal, 8/5/06)



Republican leadership thwarting vote on tax extenders; Frist undermining effort to extend tax cuts. “Grassley wants GOP Senators who are up for re-election to encourage Frist to free the popular extenders from the estate tax bill. Grassley is ‘frustrated that Senate Republican leadership and staff are generating objections to thwart that vote...’ Grassley’s effort to extend the tax cuts “has been undermined by Frist’s quest for permanent estate tax changes.” (CQ Today, 9/22/06)



Majority Leader Frist more interested in his political options than in extending the tax cuts. “[W]hen Baucus tried to bring to a vote a bill focused only on the extension of the tax benefits, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) blocked him. Frist said he wanted to preserve the option of a second chance for the full Senate to vote on the e
