Chris Matthews brought former Mississippi governor, Haley Barbour on his show to discuss Obama and Romney's campaign strategies. The question of why businesses were sitting on two trillion dollars in wealth was brought up, and Barbour attempted to provide an answer:
Barbour started off by saying that businesses were holding onto that money because back when the Dems had control of congress, Obama was threatening to tax these poor folk into oblivion. This struck me as rather odd. It is true that Obama's original plan was to raise taxes on businesses. It's also true that Obama failed to enact said tax hikes. Considering the Dems lost their supermajority in the Senate almost two and a half years ago, you'd think that with the threat of an impending tax increase now gone, these businesses would flood the economy with tens of millions of new jobs during that time. Didn't exactly go according to plan. Anyway...
In the same segment, Barbour later goes on to criticize Obama for failing to raise taxes when he had control of congress! After Matthews rightfully questioned where the current fear for tax hikes comes from, given that it would be infinitely more difficult, if not impossible to get a tax hike passed with a Republican congress, the best Barbour could come up with was a pathetic defense about how Obama "wants more" tax hikes.
I'm guessing that without the worry of having to be re-elected for another term, Obama may OFFICIALLY begin his communist, Kenyan dicatorship and start bypassing congress entirely, and start unilaterally enacting all the tax hikes he's always dreamed of!
