New Debt Deal will include Tax Increases for Middle Class Americans

President Barack Obama awoke today to furious reaction to his last-minute debt deal, with experts slamming the agreement as a cruel means of hitting middle classes with tax hikes ‘through the back door’.

The President and congressional leaders last night finally announced an agreement on emergency legislation to avert the nation’s first-ever financial default.

But while the dramatic resolution briefly lifted a cloud that had threatened the still-fragile economic recovery, critics said in the long run the middle classes would bear the brunt of the country’s massive debt, with increased taxes set to cover for the White House’s reluctance to cut public spending.

    Actually there are no new taxes/revenues in this deal and the middle class will feel these spending cuts the most thru cuts affecting programs they use, like public education and health benefits, and the working class will be negatively impacted as well with reductions to welfare programs, including food programs.

      "Working Class" as you call us, will NOT be negatively impacted by the "reductions to welfare programs, including food program. We "Working Class" people pay for our own food and are not eligable for "food programs." But it is informative for us to understand that you and the rest of the lying libRETARDS want to re-instate the Class System we Americans left Europe to escape.
