GOP questions Obama on tax claim | POLITICO 44. Mr. Obama thinks he knows alot about GOP voters, or perhaps he thinks that you will believe him if he tells you that polls show GOP voters want to jack up the taxes on “the rich”. From the people I have spoken to and the feedback I get from friends and family via facebook, Republican voters don’t want to raise taxes on anyone. We have all the taxes we need, and in my opinion, we could do without some. CUTS!, thats what we need, all this hoopblah could be solved with a lot less spending! As you and I both know, spending cuts are no where to be found in the vocabulary of Washington Bureacrats and Democratic Leadership. As soon as we can get “true” Republican control of the House back we will be alot better off, and Mr. Obama wont have to strain as hard to read the minds of GOP voters.
