Today Barack Obama began his pledge to give tax breaks to 95% of all Americans:

President Barack Obama ordered the U.S. Treasury on Saturday to implement tax cuts for 95 percent of Americans, fulfilling a campaign pledge he hopes will help jolt the economy out of recession.
I may not be a Harvard grad like President Obama, but at least I can tell that it's impossible to give 95% of Americans tax cuts when almost 40% already don't pay any taxes at all (and a large part of that 40% goes exempt on their payroll status, making it impossible for them to pay less in their paycheck each week as Obama claims).

Obama's policies sound good on paper, but in reality are statistically impossible to implement. He should be held more accountable for lies like this.
