White House Says Obama is ‘Very Interested’ in Raising Taxes by Executive Order

President Obama has become more and more comfortable acting as a despot. He has already enacted unilateral amnesty and now, Obama is eyeing tax increases to be enacted unilaterally. Rare.us reports on King Obama’s latest power-grab:


Speaking to reporters on Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest suggested that President Obama is considering raising taxes unilaterally. Townhall reports:

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest continued. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

In our republic, tax increases come from the legislative body. In fact, our nation fought a revolution, in part, because of taxes levied by a despot. It seems few things have changed.
