During his campaign for president, then-Senator Obama repeatedly promised not to raise taxes on the middle class. Just a year into his presidency, the president reneged on that promised when he signed into law the ObamaCare mandate tax, which will fall most heavily on middle-class families. Now the president, who has previously proclaimed the unwisdom of raising taxes while the economy is struggling, is pushing a tax hike for almost one million small businesses. Raising taxes on our country's job creators is the wrong medicine for our ailing economy.
