WHITE HOUSE: OBAMA VERY INTERESTED IN TAKING EXECUTIVE ACTION ON CORPORATE TAXES

There he goes again, showing his ignorance on the simple law of physics, as in “What goes up must come down.”

The same is true in economics.

Is Obama so completely dense that he doesn’t grasp that as he raises taxes on corporations they will pass them down as they always have to their customers, thus leaving John Q. Public less money to spend in the private sector thus stimulating the economy, creating wealth and more private sector jobs.

Oh yes, the above question was rhetorical!

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said President Barack Obama is “very interested” in the possibility of using executive action to hike taxes on corporations.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle-class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question on whether Obama would consider executive actions on taxes.

In a letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Friday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) called for the Obama administration to close $100 billion in tax loopholes through executive action with the Internal Revenue Service. Sanders, who caucuses with the Democrats, pointed to areas he said the IRS could act without Congress regarding corporate tax loopholes.

Earnest said Obama is “very interested” in looking into the possibility of executive authority, but was noncommittal on the issue.

“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest said. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally.”

Obama wants Congress to pass corporate tax reform, but Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) has said the proposal would not go anywhere.

Thus the advantage of having tax and spend democrats removed from both houses of congress as majority parties.

  1. Hmmmmm…ya think?? I think he is so arrogant that he believes the law is simply a suggestion or a chart of suggestions to go by, but certainly that HE couldn’t possibly be restrained to mere complications such as this thing called law. Impeachment something he is aiming for? VERY interesting my friend!!

  2. Yeah…see…this is what gets him into deep doo doo. It’s very clear that only CONGRESS has the duty to impose taxes. He can’t do that. It’s so illegal, they’ll have to impeach him on that one…but I think that’s what he’s going for.
