Obama to Demand More Taxes on Employers During State of the Union Address

According to Americans for Tax Reform, President Obama will call for yet another tax on employers during tomorrow’s State of the Union speech at a time when the country still faces anemic job growth.

In his State of the Union speech on Tuesday night, President Obama will propose a net tax increase on American employers.
