    As part of his proposed health care plan, President Obama unleashed a series of new tax proposals for the American people:

    -Tax Health Benefits (the very thing he mocked McCain for proposing)

    -National tax on alcohol

    -National tax on sugar products/foods using sugar

    -National Sales Tax


    These taxes are meant to help pay for the 1+ trillion dollar Obamacare plan that estimate project will assist only 16 of the 40 million uninsured Americans.

    WTF??????

    Let me make this perfectly clear. The Federal Reserve just stole $9 trillion dollars from us in the last 8 months. Practically doubling the debt in less than one year.

    If you don't think that's going to raise your taxes, then you are a fucking moron.


    One Penny Sheet » Federal Reserve Cannot Account for $9 Trillion video

    This move by the Federal Reserve alone is going to raise your taxes and lower the value of your dollar. We are FUCKED because of this.

    But none of you seem to care. You're too busy playing politics. Sooo easily distracted.

    So why did Obama just increase the regulatory power of the Fed?

    Are you saying Obama is in on this Fed powergrab/destruction of America?

    And it appears that in his attempt to divert away from Obama by attacking the Fed, he is actually implicating Obama, who just today declared new sweeping regulatory powers for the Fed - a "private" entity with governmental regulatory powers. It's like Fannie and Freddie multiplied by 100...

    SALES TAX... HELL NO!!! I don't pay sales tax now.

    It's time we all push back. Demand our Constitution be restored. Big brother doesn't know better than us!!! You know what's right for you and your family. They don't.

    ITA The Federal Reserve needs to go. Along with everyone currently in office. Both Republican and Democrat. If you haven't held yourself to the Constitution you need to go. Kick them out of OUR house!!!

    GOOOH | Get Out of Our House: A non-partisan political party!

    Great question. If you watch Freedom to Fascism by Aaron Russo, he'll point out that every US President since Hoover knows that these bankers own American and pull our politicians strings.

    Yes. I'm saying there is only so much Obama can do if the American people remain clueless.

    But you can support this and maybe we can take the country back:

    H.R. 1207: Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009 (GovTrack.us)

    If Obama says this on his own, it would be political suicide. But if he has the support of Congress???

    Look at all the sponsors:

    H.R. 1207: Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009 (GovTrack.us)

    Even they aren't willing to go as far as I am by saying what I am saying. BUT, they are willing to take control back so the Fed can't just do whatever they want whenever they want.

    I am actually shocked at Obama's willingness to come right out and advocate for a new slew of taxes that will impact everyone - but most signifcantly below-middle class Americans, about six months from taking his oath of office wherein during the campaign he promised to give almost all Americans a "tax cut".

    It is political boldness born of a near total belief that he will not be challenged enough to prevent this from happening.

    Ladies and gentelmen - a NATIONAL SALES TAX, on top of new taxes for foods using sugar, on alcohol, on health care benefits....WAKE UP.

    This is getting very very serious, and while some of our beloved statist libs in here will decry that we are being alarmist over this, I have to think the majority of you who might have been on the fence regarding Obama, are starting to realize things are spiraling far too quickly away from the basic premise of traditional American government to be comfortable for you.

    Take the national tax on sugar for instance. The justification is that sugar causes health problems that the government, when getting into the health coverage business, will have to deal with so, by taxing sugar, the government is directly involving itself in private lifestyle choices - in this case, what you are eating. This would be the first step - what would follow? The kind of recreational activities you choose to do? Shall we tax rock climbing equipment because it is dangerous? Scuba diving? Skiing? Boat racing? How about your sexual preferences? Gay sex? Too dangerous - we need to set up a special gay tax! Don't laugh - once this system is in place, what if we get a hardcore conservative president who, instead of reducing the size and scope of government intervention, perverts their version of conservatism and decides to tax behaviors described as "costly to the American public"? The potential is near limitless...

    The era of truly BIG BROTHER GOVERNMENT will most certainly be upon us far more than it already is.

    My-oh-my....

    You are diverting from Obama's apparent complicity in this. Obama just EXPANDED the Fed's power - greatly expanded it.

    So I ask you again - is Obama complicit in this Fed conspiracy of yours?
