Taxes on People making over $250,000.00
"Section 8. The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;" - The Constitution of the United States
Taxes in the US should be uniform across the board on all it's citizens. Not you pay this much percent and another pays a much higher amount. The Constitution says that they shall be "UNIFORM" throughtout the United States.
Uniform means: identical or consistent, as from example to example, place to place, or moment to moment...
So to make one pay one rate and another to pay this rate is unconstitutional...
"Taxation without representation..." Does this sound familiar? When our President calls for taxes on people making X amount of dollars is it constitutional? It sure is not UNIFORM... Taxing the rich will not create jobs. Ask New York that. They raised taxes and most of the rich people moved away, as did jobs, and the state revenue dropped.
Go figure... You can hear the waves hitting the shore as all the jobs in the US are being shipped over seas.
Remember: Barack Obama served 7 years as an Illinois State Senator, resigning to assume U.S. Senate responsibilities. He also worked as a community organizer and a civil rights attorney. Obama was also a Senior Lecturer in Constitutional Law at University of Chicago Law School. - for one that taught Constitutional Law, he sure has a way of showing the world that he does what he swore with an oath to defend and uphold.
