Considering all the horrific things ISIS has done, you would think Obama could find something to be more outraged about than ISIS raising taxes on people in the areas it controls.
Besides, doesn’t Obama like higher taxes?

Obama Criticizes ISIL for Raising Taxes
In an address delivered at the State Department on Thursday, President Barack Obama said that the Islamic State—which he referred to by the acronym ISIL—was stoking resentment among the populations under its control by hiking taxes.
“As its finances shrink, ISIL is also imposing more taxes and fines on those under its brutal rule,” said Obama. “That, in turn, stokes even more resentment among local populations. More people are realizing that ISIL is not a caliphate, it’s a crime ring.”
“So they’re not winning over hearts and minds, and they’re under severe pressure,” said Obama.
Raising taxes is not good but what about that whole burning people alive in cages thing?
Isn’t that a little worse?
