RUSH: Ken in Mission Viejo, California, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Good morning, Doctor of Truth! Retired army, Vietnam vet.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: I would like you to shine the light of truth on the distortions the Democrats are using to claim they’re not going to raise taxes. By not extending the Bush tax cuts, they’re going to bring us to the biggest tax increase we’ve ever had in our lives.
RUSH: Let me tell you something, it’s not just that. Obama’s going to be raising taxes on all kinds of things. Social Security is going to have no ceiling on income, the Medicare tax probably won’t, either. I’ve got in my stack for tomorrow, there’s a story here about where you live in California, the income tax out there is going up because the state assembly just cannot handle the proposed budget cuts by Governor Schwarzenegger. They’re going to raise taxes on the rich to the tune of nine to ten more billion dollars.
CALLER: I know. Shameful.
RUSH: If they’re not careful out there, they’re going to turn part of that state into Michigan. This is exactly what happened to Michigan. Tax upon tax upon tax, and the state just in all kinds of problems. It’s out there, it is to be seen.
CALLER: And they want a carbon tax.
RUSH: Oh, absolutely they want a carbon tax.
CALLER: Yes. On the individual!
RUSH: Yes. Well, that’s what the whole global warming hoax is about is raising everybody’s taxes. You’re going to get taxed every time you raise the toilet stool before it’s all said and done.
