Is mentioning that Obama wants to raise your taxes a distraction from the economy?

I admit, I don't really understand the whole Freddie & Fannie thing. I know it has to do with people being encouraged to buy mortgages they couldn't afford, and that the politicians who made that possible are now telling me they're the only ones who can fix it. And I know it's causing big problems with the economy, with lots of huge numbers being thrown around. But it's all a bit abstract.

Having to pay taxes? That I understand. Being told I should pay more so that somebody who's even lazier than I am can get a handout? That I understand.

And I understand not wanting to be crucified for asking about it.
