"Jan. 11 (Bloomberg) -- President-elect Barack Obama said reviving the U.S. economy will require scaling back on his campaign promises and personal sacrifice from all Americans."never mind the fact that everyone who was running against him said that there was no way the economy was going to be able to support his plans .... never mind that he is going to grow government while supposably cutting taxes (my guess is they will do ssome creative cutting - bigger returns if you know how to deduct them or if you qualify).
'personal sacrifices' translates to me to mean - more people will lose jobs as it will be cheaper for companies to move out of country since Obama/Biden will be taxing the crap out of those who remain. It also means that they will be redefining what 'wealthy' is -- remember Biden goofed and said that wealthy was like $40,000? Look out here it comes!
Betcha that they will be moving that $250,000 line closer to $75,000 - $80,000 ... and if you own a home, expect to be hit for having one worth more than $100,000.
This is going to be known as the era of 'Have nots and Hope Nots" .... you will be punished for succeeding ... naughty you.
