Obama Threatens Middle Class
Negotiations for ending the "fiscal cliff" coming in January 2013 aren't going Owebama's way so far. He first sent Turbo Tax Cheat Tim Geithner to congress with unbelievable demands which included $1.6 trillion in tax hikes (Owe campaigned on $85 billion in tax hikes) and unfettered access to raise the debt limit when and as high as he wished.

Republicans have indicated they will not cave to that ridiculous Owe plan. So now, Owe takes to Twitter and suggests that if he doesn't get the tax hikes on the "wealth" that he wants, he will take away the mortgage deduction which benefits the middle class taxpayers.
One questioner, who identified herself as Emma Robertson, expressed concern that popular tax breaks for homeownership could be threatened in an eventual deal.

"As a home owner, I worry deductions for home owners are at risk. Is that the case?" she asked in a tweet.

Obama responded that such tax breaks were important for middle class families and could be at risk if taxes for the wealthiest Americans are not increased.

"Breaks for middle class impt for families & econ. if top rates don't go up, danger that middle class deductions get hit - bo," the president said via Twitter.

Obama signs his initials - BO - to tweets that he writes himself. In this tweet, "impt" stands for important and "econ" stands for economy.
Real classy BO! Threaten the middle class (who you campaigned on being oh so important to you) because the congress doesn't capitulate to what you want. By the way Owe, have you considered cutting your rampant, wild spending and actually passing a budget?
