Reuters cheers Obama's "fulfilled campaign promise" of raising taxes

Raised taxes on top earners...

Via NewsMax, "Reuters Poll: Most Expect Congress to Make Deep Cuts to Programs":
Obama and Republican leaders initially hoped to resolve all of these issues in a "grand bargain" that would have combined tax increases and benefit cuts to put the country's finances on a sustainable course, but in the end they had to settle on a smaller deal that left many issues unresolved.

Still, the deal did allow Obama to fulfill a central campaign promise by raising taxes on top earners - in this case, individuals making more than $400,000 a year and couples earning more than $450,000. About 33 percent of those polled said Obama or his fellow Democrats deserved the most credit for the deal. (Emphasis added.)
Editor's comment - Yippee! Obama came through on stealing more money from hard-working Americans. Why not cheer on the masked bank robber, the guy that sticks up the convenience store, or the Hurricane looter carrying the television set, next time Reuters.
