On January 1st 2013 all Americans taxes are going up if President Barack Obama and the United States Congress doesnt make a deal. I think everyone has watched the news and knows this. My true feeling is that they will make a temporary deal to get them through February then make a long term deal for the future. To be truthful it is just the tip of the Iceberg. The affordable healthcare act is coming otherwise known as Obama care. This healthcare plan has twenty new taxes in it witch will be paid by all Americans. What this means is a lot of things. Employers taxes are going up so to afford these taxes the employer has to make changes. Here are some of those changes 1) Lay off some employees to cover the cost of the tax 2) Pass on the cost of the tax to their customers The misconception that business owners are just going to eat this tax is ridiculous. People you have realize that President Obama is telling you that the middle class will not be affected by the affordable health care act it is a lie. Just on the two things above it will affect the middle class Number one laying off people causes job loss to middle class people. When you go to the store prices will go up on items this also affects middle class people. For people who are working in due time you will see your check each week have less money in it. The fact that people have been given the narrative that the President is for the middle class talk to me when the affordable health care act is in full affect. I hope you think President Obama is a nice likeable guy then.
