"...let me perfectly clear... if your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime... Finally, because we're also suffering from a deficit of trust, I am committed to restoring a sense of honesty and accountability to our budget." --Remarks of President Barack Obama to Joint Session of Congress, February 24, 2009.
