Obama Lied and the Economy Died Update: Barry Busted on Taxing Middle Class Families!

Remember when the Thug-in-Chief said during the campaign that he would never tax those making less than 250,000 a year, which then became 150,000, and so on? Well, last night, during the health care snoozer, which could be used to save billions in anathesia costs (could that be Obama's healthcare solution?), he made the following statement:
I don't want that final one-third of the cost of health care to be completely shouldered on the backs of middle-class families who are already struggling in a difficult economy. And so if I see a proposal that is primarily funded through taxing middle-class families, I'm going to be opposed to that ...

Hmm...sounds like he wants to raise taxes and will do so on the middle class, like we have all been saying....Mickey Kaus caught it:
However you interpret these sentences, it's hard to see how Obama hasn't given a flashing green light to non-trivial tax increases on middle class families.
