The President is Cheating

Noticing Sarah Palin's tweet from a couple hours ago:

SarahPalinUSA What's the plan,man? Still no Obama/Dem's formal proposal telling Americans how they'll increase taxes in 4 mos, nor what they'll do w our $

As the good folk at Crooks and Liars point out, the plan is in the president's budget, Feb 2010.

Allow the Bush Tax Cuts for Households Earning More Than $250,000 to Expire. In the last Administration, those at the very top enjoyed large tax breaks and income gains while almost everyone else struggled and real income for the middle class declined. Our Nation cannot afford to continue these tax cuts, which is why the President supports allowing those tax cuts that affect families earning more than $250,000 a year to expire and committing these resources to reducing the deficit instead. This step will have no effect on the 98 percent of all households who make less than $250,000.
It looks like Palie just failed to do research, but in truth Obama read that tweet 2 hours ago and then WENT BACK IN TIME and added the clause, in the exact same way he went back in time to falsify his birth certificate. No wonder the right fears him so!
