On Friday, Obama took to the road to tour a battery factory and talk about jobs. After the tour, he put together one of his townhall pep rallies complete with questions from the audience.
As he stumbles and stammers to take a "question from a woman so things will be balanced," he received the following question from one of the factory's employees: "In the economic times that we have now, is it a wise decision to add more taxes to us with the health care, because we are over-taxed as it."
Now this question is about as simple as it gets. Americans ARE overtaxed! Income tax rates are too high, then there's the gasoline tax, taxes on services, other "fees", and more and more and more. Obama's health care plan adds even more taxes and targets those people who could be using that money to hire people, invest in capital, and expand factories. Of course, all of that gets in the way of the socialist goals of wealth distribution and government control.
Guess how long it took Obama to "answer" the question. About 17 minutes! And, he still didn't answer it. Of course, he starts off by saying there is a lot of "misinformation" out there. Misinformation about how big our tax burden is? Is he kidding? FULL STORY
Of course, that video is only Part 1 of his answer to a single question. He goes on from there:
Here's part three of the speech in case you are still following along with what he's saying:
Did Obama answer the woman's question?
