Grover Norquist, president for Americans for Tax Reform, has made and is distributing a card called “Obama Tax Hike Exemption Card” for everyone making over $250,000 year. As we all know, Obama made easy promises to get himself elected and now that he is in office he has selective amnesia.
“This card a tangible reminder that Obama has deliberately broken his central campaign promise not to raise any form of taxes on Americans earning less than $250,000,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, in a release. “The last President to break his tax pledge – Bush 41 – served only one term.”
If you’d like to give one of these cards a test run, here’s how it works: If you make under $250,000 and find yourself facing any of the new taxes highlighted by ATR (“Tax on Indoor Tanning Services,” “Medicine Cabinet Tax,” “Special Needs Kids Tax,” etc.), you present the card and, if challenged “politely ask, ‘Excuse me, but are you calling President Obama a liar?'”
Not sure how that will come across to the person behind the counter, but perhaps you’ll at least feel better as you shell out your extra tax dollars.
