You thought President Obama wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class? Tim Geithner seems to be saying you should think again:
To get the economy back on track, will President Barack Obama have to break his pledge not to raise taxes on 95 percent of Americans? In a “This Week” exclusive, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner told me, “We’re going to have to do what’s necessary.”
Geithner was clear that he believes a key component of economic recovery is deficit reduction. When [ABC's "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos] gave him several opportunities to rule out a middle class tax hike, he wouldn’t do it.
Sounds almost Clintonesque, doesn’t it?
Now, repeat after me: You cannot trust a Democrat not to raise your taxes.
