    sales tax= regressive taxation, right?

    Doesn't that contradict 'no new taxes' for people making less than X dollars a year?

    The majority of the Left on this board have already said that EVERY thing Obama promised in the Campaign were just lies to get votes. That if anyone ACTUALLY thought he was serious THEY have the problem not Obama for not seeing through a single campaign promise.

    Who will these propose taxes hurt?


    Soda drinkers, of course. The reduction in the costs of health care might offset that somewhat.


    Who will those hurt? Fairly obvious, isn't it?


    Anyone who gets HC with their jobs, obviously.

    Anyone with really good HC coverage, I suppose.

    I notice you left out the National sales tax hidden as an excise tax. Further explain to me, if the PURPOSE of the plan is to get every health insurance, WHY would you tax peoples health care benefits?

    Ohh and you can now provide me with the AUTHORITY that the Federal Government has to FORCE me or anyone else to get health insurance.

    So it's OK for our government to legislate law with taxes to tell us how to live our life style? And, you have no problem with that? Hmmm
    So once again, discrimination on the wealthy hard workers to nail them with ANOTHER additional tax? And, once again you have no problem with that? Hmmm
    Taxing of any kind on employer healthcare expenditures could very well redice the number of employees hired. And, once again you have no problem with that???? Hmmm
    Once again taxing on healthcare could very well reduce the number of employees. and still you have no problem with that??? Hmmmm
    You really haven't thought this through at all, or your nothing more than a big government socialist. Your willing to jump over the cliff if Barry tells you to do so.....that is about as mindless as a obamanut can get. The indoctrination is complete on this one. :cuckoo:
