‘Big-tax victory’

Dear Editor,

In the disgraceful tug-of-war between President Obama and the practically do – nothing Congress over the “fiscal Cliff” mess, nobody got a tax cut.

Both, “the rich” and middle class came up with a whopper of a black-eye – from cliff – related tax increases.

Obama’s campaign was class warfare rhetoric about raising taxes.

– but, what’s left after the rich pay their “fair share”? a carbon tax?

The bottom line is, President Obama’s big-tax victory, on New Year’s Day … will be the end result for him and a lasting calamity for all taxpayers.
