For those of you just ecstatic about all the hollow promises Obama had with his universal healthcare, consider this article regarding a recent analysis by the Health and Human Services Department. Sure, more people will be covered, but the cost will be more and Medicare is in serious jeopardy- please pay particular attention to the words “unsustainable” and “insolvency”. These are mighty strong words by an “impartial” government entity regarding a bill that is supposed to be the the equivalent of the very tablets of Moses. Then, if you care to, take a gander at reader’s comments- one even suggested that a public option is now necessary! Yeah! Give the government even more power at ineptitude at the cost of our children and grandchildren!
Thought you were going to be among the chosen that would not have to pay higher taxes because you earn less than $250,00 per year? Sorry, not according to the Joint Committee on Taxation. The healthcare reform has a good chance of dragging you in to Obama’s already broken promise, “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.” Shoulda’ just started with “read my lips” you damned LIAR!
In addition to everything we are already burdened to pay, the snakes in Congress are now considering a Value Added Tax! This taxes the production of goods at every level of production- something that is currently not done. Guess who pays for that…every blessed American already struggling to feed his or her family!!! On top of the internal economic strain these taxes are going to cause, the VAT is going to make us even less economically viable against our foreign competitors by making goods more expensive!
Where is the departure from the status quo, Mr. Obama? You must truly believe we are stupid!
What foolishness this country has embarked in!!!
