Me, too.

Elliot is saving this for later:

Barack Obama said:

“I promise you this: not only will the middle class get a tax cut under my plan, but if you make less than $250,000 a year — which includes 98 percent of small business owners — you won’t see your taxes increase one single dime,” said the Illinois senator. “Not your payroll taxes, not your income taxes, not your capital gains taxes — nothing. That is my commitment to you.”
Elliot says:

And if it’s Congress that raises one of those taxes and Obama only signs it into law, it will still count as a broken promise.
I'd add that allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire - which will raise taxes on the middle class - will also amount to a broken promise.
