Another letter arrived from Mount Olympus…and this one is such a deviation from reality it\’s hard to even make fun of it. It\’s like kicking a drunk quadriplegic or something.
Did you know that the average tax refund is up nearly 10% — about $3,000 — this year? And that there are more than a dozen Recovery Act tax cuts that over 100 million Americans can take advantage of this tax season?
See how much you could save thanks to the Recovery Act.
Together, in February 2009, we passed the Recovery Act — taking our economy from the brink of disaster to the road to recovery, and keeping President Obama\’s campaign promise of giving 95% of working Americans a tax cut.
Now, it\’s tax season, and there are more than a dozen ways the Recovery Act is helping folks save — credits for new homeowners, help with saving for college, and rewards for making your home more energy efficient.
After you find out how much you can save, make sure your family and friends can do the same by forwarding this email:

You hear that? We all got tax cuts?
Funny, I don\’t remember getting one…and what\’s more, even if you did, prepare to have it canceled out and then some.
Taxpayers earning less than $200,000 a year will pay roughly $3.9 billion more in taxes — in 2019 alone — due to healthcare reform, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation, Congress\’s official scorekeeper.
Even if you did cut taxes, it doesn\’t count if you promptly raise them even more later on. Although that does fit a pattern with the Obama administration. They tripled an already too-high federal deficit, then shaved a few million off and called that deficit reduction.
