Media Spotlight--Obama Tax Hike Creep, Grover on Sotomayor

Obama’s signing of the SCHIP bill, increasing cigarette taxes, should have removed all doubt; but now it is becoming obvious that the administration is moving away from Obama’s campaign promise:

 
 
3) Obama has already tried raising taxes.
4) Obama’s advisers are for higher taxes.
5) Obama doesn’t seem to think high taxes are harmful.
Check out the article to see the last two reasons
 
Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform:
 If I were a US senator I would vote no. Sotomayor's written record identifies her as someone who hasn't read the second and fourteenth amendments and believes in racial quotas rather than individual merit. Both are disqualifiers. Gun control and racial quotas are both issues the left wishes to impose through the courts as they know they cannot get congress or state legislatures to vote for them. Any senator who votes for Sotomayor is clearly and unequivocally voting for racial quotas and gun control...and lord knows what else that she hasn't had the opportunity to telegraph in her previous written opinions. When the dust clears three Senators will lose reelection because they voted for Sotomayor and that vote was seen by voters as a racial quotas and gun control vote.

Cash for Clunkers: That is the name of the tax Obama will impose to pay for his "health" and "cap and trade" bills.
