Did obama raise taxes?
No, he did not. He actually cut taxes several times, especially on middle class taxpayers.
Barack Obama states he will not raise taxes.
Raise your taxes.
To help the poor
sen obama has voted to raise taxes up to 42,000 dollars more. Obama plans to provide a tax cut for 95% of Americans. If you make less than a quarter of a million dollars a year, you won't see your taxes go up. If you make $200,000 a year or less, your taxes will go down.
Pres. Barack Hussein Obama did not force Congress to raise gasoline sales taxes. The president wanted Congress to raise the federal gasoline excise tax but the Republican led House refused to do so.
He didn't. It is a durable myth that Democrats all raise taxes and Republicans never do. In this case, President Obama has cut taxes on at least three occasions during his presidency. I enclose a link to a news story about one of the tax cuts, which decreased income taxes by up to $400 a year for most individuals and $800 for most married couples.
So far, there have not been new taxes. In fact, there have been several tax cuts. But Mr. Obama did say that he believes the wealthiest 2% of Americans need to pay more in taxes, and he has proposed that their taxes be increased slightly, to raise much-needed revenue.
He wants to raise taxes on wealthy Americans and lower them for the lower and working class.
YES, he is going to raise taxes on the higher class.
No Obama wont rase taxes cause really he does not make that choice he has to write a bill or something like that and get it passed by congress.
This question assumes that President Obama has raised your taxes a lot already. But this is political rhetoric from his opponents, and it is not entirely accurate. The facts are that he has given a number of tax cuts, especially to middle-class and working families. And there is no evidence he has plans to "raise your taxes even more."
He has proposed a %500 percent increase on ammunition taxes and has supported many gun bans in the past, some are sensible some are just biased
McCain is smart. Obama is smart. McCain is pro-Israel. Obama to be pro-Israel. McCain does not go by what he says. Obama doesn't backtrack and never takes back the great, smart stuff he says. Obama is a no-experience socialist that (typical democrat) will raise everyone's taxes. Yes even you middle class people, he will discontinue the Bush tax breaks, thus raising your taxes (even with HIS middle class tax breaks, they are less that the… Read More
Well Hes a way better president then Romney will be. Romney is going to raise our taxes for the middle class and going to cut out taxes for the rich! Obama has done many great things hes not the monster Romney is! You see Obama really tries but congress fights him...... We think its because hes black. If you want a good president VOTE Obama!
No. The President has no power over taxes. He can ask Congress to raise the income tax, but they tend to do what they want to do. President Obama did ask Congress to increase the income tax on high incomes.
There is no way to predict, but based on his first four years, probably not. On the other hand, he may try to raise taxes on the top 1%, which he has discussed. But contrary to the accusations of his opponents, he has actually given a number of tax cuts during his first term, and there is no evidence to support the idea that he will begin raising taxes, especially on the middle class.
There is no such thing as "supports taxes" or "does not support taxes." Taxes are a fact of life, there is no way for Pres. Obama to not support taxes. President Obama supports a progressive tax, meaning rates are higher on the rich then the poor.
George W. Bush added over $4 trillion to the national debt. That is $4,000,000,000,000. How much did you get? Well now we have to pay the piper. Thanks Dubya. i hope obama gets us out of this debt........................fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"to raise taxes" is an infinitive phrase. It is used as a noun-object of the verb "wanted" in this sentences.
This is a double sided question. The direct answer is that Obama will not raise taxes on S-Corporations. S-Corporations rarely pay taxes. Their profits flow through a schedule K-1 to the owners individual income tax return. If Obama raises personal income taxes, which he probably will, then yes you will pay more. The biggest issue with Obama and S-Corporations is the fact that Obama wants the profits from an S-Corporation to be subject to Social… Read More
No- he has no direct control over the budget. He has no authority to raise taxes or add new taxes. He has some discretionary control over the release of funds and thus controls spending to some extent.
obama not only wants to continue stem cell research but he wants to switch all the cars over to electricity which will not only take lots of years but will cost lots of tax payer money. i rest my case.
All he wants to do is raise taxes... for regular people... not for the lower paid people. President Obama has stated that he wants to reform healthcare, education and energy. He has policy issues regarding the wars in the Middle East, and he has an economic nightmare on his hands.
For one thing he is not going to raise taxes on small buisnesses like Obama is planning to do. The only reason he would, is if he had to for the country. McCain 08!!
Obama was raise in Hawaii
Obama wants the Bush tax cuts to expire from those Americans earning $250,000 a year. Obama opposes the suspension of gas taxes. He advocates the elimination income taxes for seniors making less than 50,000 a year and wants to simplify He would raise taxes on capital gains and dividends and give them to low and middle-income Americans. basically he wants to take from the rich and "spoon-feed" the poor. he wants to screw over the… Read More
Beacuse, he may have raised taxes but, its not ENTIRELY his fault, he had to get permission and a certain amout of votes from the counsil, and romney is just going to raise taxes on purpose, and lower taxes for the people more on the wealthy side. Another reason is if your parents vote for him, your kids are as well.
No, the president cannot raise taxes, unless 2/3 of congress agree to.
No. Actually yo just get tiny little animals like ants but wormlike Ps vote for Obama Romney will just raise taxes

On a Federal level, the Constitution gave the Legislative Branch the power to raise taxes. These taxes are to be used to pay for the facilities and operational costs of the government.
States can raise taxes and they do this all of the time. All states have their own sales tax rate.
George H. W. Bush promised not to raise taxes but conditions made that impossible.
a subjective question. Some say it's ALWAYS a good time to raise taxes. Others say it's NEVER a good time to raise taxes (and if anything, they should be abolished).
He didn't. This is an old Republican talking-point about any Democrat, but in the case of the president, it's not accurate; and in fact, he has given a number of tax cuts during his first term in office.
Nothing at all but raise taxes abn get us killed by irqu, hes from irqu, and those people are our enemy's so that makes him our enemy.

Congress has the power to collect and raise to taxes.
The chief purpose of taxes is to raise money.
They want to cut taxes.
Obama loves taxes because he's a politician and all they want is more federal power. Obama's also a liberal and thus twice as bad as a normal politician. So Obama loves taxes because they add to the federal reserve.
How much money did Obama raise for his campaign? This is not the correct answer. We need the exact amount.
taxes are important part of national growth.
They pass a bill to raise taxes which becomes law if the Senate also passes it and the president signs it.
No. The Obama family has a Portuguese Water Dog.
Higher, higher taxes for richer people, lower taxes for poor people.

Yes, Peter the Great raised taxes.
