    That's just the income tax on my cadillac health insurance!
    According to Obama's pal Dr ezekial Emmanuel, there will be no health insurance companies left by 2020, so another Obama lie "you can keep your plan"

    Actually, I like the idea of taxes - as long as it is applied fairly. After all, don't liberals believe in "fairness"? With this in mind, I propose the following taxes to help balance the federal budget rather than trying to teach the socialists in Congress to live within their means. After all, teaching them to not spend more money than they have is like teaching a goldfish to sing like Andrea Bocelli. The following taxes should be implemented immediately:

    1. Freedom of Life Tax. All abortions performed for convenience are now subjected to a $12500 tax. Had this tax been imposed beginning in 1973, the federal deficit would have been reduced by $625 billion for the 50 million babies saved from being born alive.

    2. The Freedom of Speech Act. People burning the American flag are now required to pay a $250/flag fee, er, I mean TAX. Part of the tax will be used to buy offsetting carbon credits;

    3. The Freedom of the Road Initiative will levy a $1500 tax on all bicycles which are used outside of parks and neighborhoods and used on public highways. Each person paying the tax will receive a rainbow sticker with a green edge suitable for their bike helmet to show the world they are one with the environment;

    4. The Freedom of the Airwaves Tax will impose a $1500 tax on all people plus a $250 fee for a descrambler to listen to NPR, CNN, MSNBC, LOGO, BET and others which exalt diversity and "alternative lifestyles";

    5. The Marriage Support Act of 2012 will impose a $2500 tax on any same-sex marriage performed in all 50 states whether legally recognized or not. Although marriage is considered a states' sovereignty issue, since the Constitution doesn't mean anything any more, the 10th Amendment is deemed "antiquated" giving the federal government the right to tax as it pleases;

    6. The Celebrate America's History Enhancement Act will charge every school in America $950/student to supply each district with books teaching how disgusting America is, why America is mean, and illustrate the lives of famous, influential Americans such as Margaret Sanger, Sheila Jackson Lee, Saul Alinsky, Al Gore, Barack Obama, Woodrow Wilson, Barbra Streisand, Jesse Jackson, William Ayers, Cindy Sheehan and more;

    7. The One World United Tax would demand contributions from uber-wealthy Americans earning more than $20,000/yr to pay their fair share of the cost of the UN's Agenda 21 program by surcharging their incomes a paltry 15% of their gross wages;

    8. The Freedom of America Tax will be levied on all businesses and persons living in Progressive Zones across the country to empty all of their jails and prisons of inmates. This $2200/yr tax is to find these poor souls who are victims of America's corrupt, racist society a career with a living wage, a basic right of all Americans. Since America is free and these people are locked up, they will be released since being incarcerated against your will is like sooo uncool.

    A rally should be scheduled in New York's Central Park to show solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street freedom fighters. The Dixie Chicks and other Progressive entertainment will be provided along with free food, protest signs and pictures of GW Bush to spit on, defecate on and flip the bird to. BYOP - Bring Your Own Pot.

    We the people let this happen by not paying attention to the candidates background so we the people need to get rid of the politicians that pass bills before they read them and politicians that have questionable backgrounds in social organizations and political parties.

    I just know that this will take more money from people that could drive our economy back from the brink and that is a BFD in my book.

    Our Marxist govt cannot support all of the people all of the time. Even the old Leninist Soviets understood that simple fact.

    For socialism to succeed a country needs a very good economic base and that implies that the country needs a good jobs base so the tax base grows not shrink. When the jobs base shrinks then so does the govt's tax income shrink and then you get a leveling off of 'benefits' for the masses.

    This will lead to the infamous 'life curve' being upheld in health care to save money for more important cases , ie., care for those young enough to pay into the system, and it would mean that Palin got it right and everyone else got it wrong.

    I could rant for hours about this, but in the short term not only will I refuse to participate, but 'Oh Hell No' I will not participate.

    Donald Trump on Obamacare


    Let me get this straight ……
    We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care
    plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t,
    which purportedly covers at least ten million more people,
    without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
    written by a committee whose chairman
    says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but
    exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who smokes,
    with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes,
    for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect,
    by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
    all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese,
    and financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!

    What the court has done is give the government unlimited power via the TAX while completely ignoring the commerce clause.



    Even if the Rethumplagins do win and did completely repeal RObamneycare, which they won't do, the damage is forever done.

    The Russian Mafia is rolling on the floor laughing.

    "Medicare fraud - estimated now to total about $60 billion a year - has become one of, if not the most profitable, crimes in America."

    http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-1...

    Now only the sky is the limit. Most of this crime is unreported so the numbers are a lot higher. Insurance companies just pass the cost along so nobody really cares and the rates just keep going up.

    Insurance companies have PR departments that keep putting out info about frivolous law suits. They don't report most are dismissed.

    Doctors have extreme malpractice insurance not because of law suits per se but because of Risk Analysis. Medical Mistakes kill more people than smoking. Thats why that insurance is so high.
