For some reason 21 scheduled tax hikes have gotten paranoid cynics doubting the veracity of the President Obama’s pledge not to raise taxes on those that earn less than $250,000 a year — despite Obama’s emphatic campaign promise that if elected “…you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.”
If you are one of those doubters, you will be relieved to hear that Americans for Tax Reform has developed a plan reinstate your peace of mind. Here’s how it works: The next tax hike is scheduled for tanning salons this Thursday; which means that if you patronize a tanning salon next week the proprietor may try to add a 10 percent tax. Now you can simply present your Tax Hike Exemption Card which states that you make less than $250,000 and and have been declared exempt from new taxes by the President of the United States.
The business may still attempt to collect the tax. If that happens, follow the directions on the reverse side of the card: Ask them if they are calling President Obama a liar.
You may have noticed that President Obama has broken his central campaign promise – a “firm pledge” that Americans making less than $250,000 would not see “any form of tax increase.” He first broke this pledge sixteen days into his presidency when he signed a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco. And Obamacare contains 21 tax increases – several of which violate his “firm pledge”.
To protect you from these tax hikes, Americans for Tax Reform presents the “Obama Tax Hike Exemption Card”. The card fits neatly in your wallet and contains a list of the tax hikes signed into law by President Obama that violate his tax pledge, as well as a few other taxes that have been threatened: a European-style Value-Added Tax, Cap and Trade taxes, and even a federal soda tax.
