What does being "agnostic" about raising taxes really mean? Probably that our pockets are about to be emptied.

Never let it be said that these aren't some interesting political times. Our federal government has been spending money faster than the printing presses can create it and the politicos have yet to figure out how they plan to pay for it all. Forget the debate of right or wrong on the spending, the fact is the bill will be coming due.

If you'd like to get an idea of what may be coming down the pipe for us, Bloomberg BusinessWeek had an interview with the President you really should read.

President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit. Now that's a new way to be wishy-washy with an answer.

Obama, in a Feb. 9 Oval Office interview, said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit, including tax increases and cuts in spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.

“The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table,” the president said in the interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek, which will appear on newsstands Friday. “So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions.”
