McCain and His Elitist Supporters Think You are Stupid

The Fiscal Conservative flip-flops:

He went a step farther Sunday with his reponse on a nationally televised talk show to a question about payroll tax increases.

"There is nothing that's off the table. I have my positions, and I'll articulate them. But nothing's off the table," McCain said. "I don't want tax increases. But that doesn't mean that anything is off the table."

That comment drew a strong response Monday from the Club for Growth, a Washington anti-tax group. McCain's comments, the group said in a letter to the Arizona senator, are "shocking because you have been adamant in your opposition to raising taxes under any circumstances."

Indeed, McCain frequently has promised not to raise taxes.

At a July 7 town-hall meeting in Denver, he said voters faced a stark choice between him and Democrat Barack Obama.

"Sen. Obama will raise your taxes," McCain said. "I won't."

In a March 16 interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, McCain said he would cut taxes where possible, and not raise them.

"Do you mean none?" Hannity asked.

"None," McCain replied.

In other words, when its convenient he will tell you he won't raise your taxes. When he's pressed he admits it may be a possibility. Beware the Republican tax raiser. His rich friends and supporters won't feel it the way you feel it. For his elitist wealthy friends its one less new Mercedes. For the rest of us it could make the difference in whether or not you can make that mortgage payment. Better hope the price of dog food doesn't go through the roof.

Obama is honest and forthright. It doesn't bother him in the least to tell McCain's wealthy elitist supporters and friends that they may have to put off buying that new vacation home in Aruba.
