Polls and Taxes

Rasmussen Report’s most recent Presidential poll shows that only 31% strongly approve of President Obama’s job as President. See the full report here. This clearly shows BHO's support waning.

Beyond the implications of continually moving toward the nanny-state model of government by the Obama Administration, we belive that this is also due to more accurate media coverage.

Traditional media as well as special interest groups are starting to seriously consider the tax implications of President Obama’s policies. As a newly minted President, Obama was given a grace period as the media is prone to do. It appears that the honeymoon is now over.

The AP ran a story confirming what we reported here on Sunday that Obama advisor Axelrod is in spin mode regarding taxation. Previously, Obama had pledged not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 annually. Now, that seems impossible. In an effort to keep everyone honest, the Commonwealth Foundation is circulating a pledge to Senators and Representatives asking them to honor the pledge of the President-even if he seems unwilling or unable to do so. Grassroots PA has the pledge here.
