Tone deaf: The day before tax day, Obama is expected tonight to call for more tax increases.

More here about what Obama is proposing.

I meanwhile ask this obvious question: Why didn’t Obama make this proposal in his earlier budget proposals? Could it be that he isn’t serious, and is simply responding to the pressure he is getting from the right?

    TAXES WILL BE INCREASED UNTIL THE ECONOMY IMPROVES

    By the way, Tax day is Monday the 18th this year.

    Fact check!!
