Promises, PromisesOct 03, 2008
Who's an '80s music head out there? Remember Naked Eyes? Maybe, maybe not, but I bet you remember their big hit. Everyone does. "Promises, Promises." Can't think of a catchier tune than that. So, here's one for you: Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama has made a promise of a tax cut for "95 percent of the American people" an a tax increase "on the richest five percent" the centerpiece of his economic plan.
But there's a problem on the way to the bank, as in this fact: Only 70 percent of Americans pay federal income taxes. Kind of reminds you of the last time a candidate promised a "middle class tax cut." The middle class got no tax cut and every class paid a lot more in taxes.
You made me promises, promises Knowing I'd believe Promises, promises You knew you'd never keep
You made me promises, promises You knew you'd never keep Promises, promises Why do I believe All of your promises You knew you'd never keep Promises, promises Why do I believe?
