I'm Shocked! SHOCKED!

Drudge has been making a lot of hay with this story the past day or two:

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and National Economic Council Director Larry Summers both sidestepped questions on Obama's intentions about taxes. Geithner said the White House was not ready to rule out a tax hike to lower the federal deficit; Summers said Obama's proposed health care overhaul needs funding from somewhere.

"There is a lot that can happen over time," Summers said, adding that the administration believes "it is never a good idea to absolutely rule things out, no matter what."

During his presidential campaign, Obama repeatedly vowed "you will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime." But the simple reality remains that his ambitious overhaul of how Americans receive health care -- promised without increasing the federal deficit -- must be paid for.

I must say that I simply can't imagine anyone actually believed that promise in the first place.

I completely agree why believe anything he says.As far as this promise, what about any of his promises, his integrity is completely blown,as if he had any to start off with.

We already pay over 50% in local, state and federal taxes. I really wish someone would let us know what our fair share is.
Maybe not. Maybe we should just quit our jobs and stop the insanity.
