Barack Obama has been lying about his tax plan from day one.
When he stopped to let Joe the Plumber ask him a question about taxes he told Joe that he wanted to "spread the wealth". When Obama's response was caught on tape and spread on the web, it didn't take long for Joe the plumber to become a central character in the 2008 election.
Democrats than illegally dug through his Joe's life performing child custody searches, tax liens searches, they put pressure on his employer, costing him his job and worse, put his family in danger. All the while, Barack Obama and Joe Biden were on the stumps telling America that they want to give Joe the plumber a tax cut, that they want to give everyone who makes less than $250,000 a year a tax cut.
When cries of socialism began resonating Obama quietly changed his plan to add a work requirement to qualify for his "tax cuts". Prior to that change, Obama was proudly saying 95% of Americans would get a tax cut. Now he says 95% of working Americans.
Than, just yesterday, news surfaced that Obama had once again changed his plan. Now Americans will only see a tax cut if they make less than $200,000, instead of the original $250,000. News of this change was overshadowed by an audio tape that surfaced from 2001 in which Obama called for "redistributive change" and argued that the Warren Court wasn't radical enough because it didn't break free from the constraints of the Constitution.
Today he has slipped yet another change into his tax plan. The change was buried in a new 60 second ad that began airing on CBS during The Mentalist. During the ad Barack Obama smugly looks directly at the camera and tells viewers that Americans will get a tax cut if their family makes less than $200,000 a year. The statement was echoed in the corner of the screen urging viewers to go online and read his plan.
Did you catch the subtle alteration? He's hoping you didn't.
Obama has changed his tax cut threshold from the individual income level to the entire family. This is a significant change from his original plan which called for tax cuts for everyone making less than $250,000 a year.
Barack Obama refuses to answer significant questions about his past and now he is openly lying about his plans. Barack Obama can't be trusted.
UPDATE: Even Joe Biden is getting confused by Obama's constantly morphing tax plan. He told a crowd, "[Tax cuts] should go to middle-class people, people who make $150,000 a year."
