Obama, Tax Cutter

Once again, the Big Lies of Fox obscure reality. The facts:

Crunching the numbers at the liberal think tank the Center for American Progress, analyst Michael Lind found that if one compares the cost of tax cuts in just the first four years of Bush’s term (2001–04) to the first four years of Obama's (2009–12), Obama’s tax cuts are bigger. The value of the Bush tax cuts were about $475 billion in those first four years, or about 1.1 percent of GDP. Obama’s total about $1 trillion, or 1.6 percent of GDP.

And yet Hannity professes that he would support the president one hundred percent if he cut taxes. Well, Sean, he has in reality. It is only in your fevered, addled, ideological brain that he has raised taxes.
