    Over the next 10 years Obamacare will charge additional taxes of $257 billion from here:
    The ObamaCare Medical Device Manufacturing Tax
    A 2.3% tax on pacemakers, prosthetic limbs, stents, and operating tables manufacturers will pass on to patients $20 billion over the next 10 years.

    The ObamaCare High Medical Bills Tax
    $15 billion additional taxes from out-of-pocket medical bills. Every American can deduct medical expenses that exceed 7.5% of adjusted gross income.
    Obamacare raised the level to 10% meaning these deductions won't be allowed unless they are more then 10% of adjusted income.


    The ObamaCare Flexible Spending Account Cap
    $13 billion more in taxes that at least 24 million Americans will pay because they were able to set aside up to $5,000 before taxes for medical expenses.
    After Obamacare up to $2,500.
    This is especially onerous on special needs tuition that used to be covered.. now cut to $2,500.

    The ObamaCare Surtax on Investment Income
    $123 billion from capital gains tax increase and dividend rates. Wonderful eh??
    Well most of these are from 401Ks, mutual funds, pension funds all hitting average americans!

    The ObamaCare Medicare Payroll Tax increase
    $86 billion from an increase in Medicare tax for employers.

    Who said Obamacare wasn't going to cost anything to cover the 8 million that truly need coverage?

    Not possible. Obama promised we wouldn't see taxes go up 'not one dime.'

    Fox news didn't write Obamacare... they just report what the biased MSM won't!
    Just because you don't want to accept the facts doesn't alter the facts!

    And at some point some Congress members that voted "YES" for Obamacare will have to admit:
    They thought based on EVERYONE's concurrence there were 50 million "uninsured" and Obamacare would take care of most of them.

    BUT IT WAS A LIE!
    When 10 million counted as "uninsured" are actually NOT CITIZENS why were they counted?
    14 million who were counted as "uninsured" -- but they ARE COVERED BY MEDICAID!
    18 million under age 34 who spend out of their OWN POCKET an average of $1,000 for medical expenses they don't have a need nor WANT health insurance --- but they were counted!
    42 million counted as uninsured wrongly means there are less then 8 million!

    There is a simpler solution other then destroying a $100 billion tax generating industry, putting 400,000 people out of work which is in Obama's own words:"I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program.” meaning putting 1,400 companies out of business!

    We already had health-care for everyone. The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) is a U.S. Act of Congress passed in 1986 as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). It requires hospitals to provide care to anyone needing emergency health-care treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay.

    The Obamacrats just hit the middle class with the largest TAX increase in history for no reason other than government can spend your money better than you can spend it yourself. :lol: We already had free national health-care. Democrats are such stupid tools. They are even happy about this TAX! :lol: Yes TAX, SCOTUS said it was a TAX!!!!!!!

    The average Democrat: "NO NO NO!!! President Obama said...."

    2013 rolls around

    The average Democrat: "How can this be? Former President Obama said..."

    February 2013

    The average Democrat: "President Romney is going to kill us all!!!"

    March 2013

    The average Democrat: "Holy crap!!! I had no idea! Thank you President Romney for saving us stupid people from the disaster that was former President Obama"

    Of course, those here on this board who support President Obama are too busy still wanting to take it up the ass by the President and most Democrat elected officials.
