Congressman: Obama’s Tax Increases Fund Government for Eight Days

I think this whole “fiscal cliff” thing may have more to do with class warfare and an anti-prosperity mentality than it has to do with really solving any budget problem.

Obama and company just want to raise taxes, and they want to “win.”

In an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) said President Barack Obama’s plan to raise taxes on the wealthy would only generate enough revenue to fund the federal government for eight days.

“The president’s plan to increase taxes on the upper two percent covers the spending by this federal government not for eight years, not for eight months, not for eight weeks but for eight days. Eight days only,” said Mr. Price. “It’s not a real solution. So, again, I’m puzzled by an administration that seems to be more interested in raising tax rates than in gaining economic vitality.”
