    OBAMA DID NOT keep his pledge which was:
    "I can make a firm pledge: Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”

    Obama LIED! Has anyone in the MSM done to Obama over this GLARING big LIE... "I Pledge..." and yet peoples' taxes are going up...

    1) money reduced from payroll taxes
    2) The Obamacare Individual Mandate Excise Tax: Starting in 2014, anyone not buying “qualifying” health insurance – as defined by Obama-appointed bureaucrats -- must pay an income surtax
    3) The Obamacare Medicine Cabinet Tax: This tax took effect in January 2011 and prevents Americans from being able to use their health savings account (HSA),flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement (HRA) pre-tax dollars to purchase non-prescription, over-the-counter medicines (except insulin).
    4)The Obamacare Flexible Spending Account Cap – aka “Special Needs Kids Tax”: Starting in January 2013, Obamacare imposes a cap on FSAs of $2500 (now unlimited under federal law).
    5) The Obamacare "Haircut" to the Medical Itemized Deduction from 7.5% to 10% of AGI -- Any taxpayer use to take itemized medical deductions up to 10% now just 7.5% --TAX RAISE!!!

    6) The Obamacare HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike: This provision, which took effect in January 2011, increases the tax on non-medical early withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to IRAs and other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent.
    7) The Obamacare Tax on Indoor Tanning Services: Since July of 2010, Americans using indoor tanning salons face a new 10 percent excise tax.
    8) Obamacare Excise Tax on Comprehensive Health Insurance Plans: Starting in 2018, this provision imposes a new 40 percent excise tax on “Cadillac” health insurance plans ($10,200 single/$27,500 family). Higher thresholds exists for early retirees and those in high-risk professions.
    None of the above tax increases contain any exemption whatsoever for families making less than $250,000 per year.

    dear idiot that was planned to be temporary at its inception.

    Just like the Bush taxes were designed to EXPIRE at a certain date.


    Then you assholes acted like they were NEVER supposed to be temporary

    THEN Dic..ignorant s..ker.... EXPLAIN THE OTHER TAX INCREASES!!!

    "Tanning Salons"??? What the f...k for???
    I mean sure they contribute to cancer... so what???
    LAWYERS contribute to the $750 billion a year physicians bill Medicare/private insurance as in their own words "OUT OF FEAR OF LAWSUITS!!!:"
    So where is the 10% tax on LAWYERS????? They earn $100 billion a year!
    Tax them 10% and use that to pay the legitimate claims of the truly 8 million NOT bogus 50 million uninsured!
    Problem solved! NO NEED raise taxes on the rest of Americans!

    BUT no but the ignorant dick you are you don't KNOW lawyers gave Obama/Democrats $300 million to protect them from "TORT REFORM"
    that would have reduced the $750 billion a year in wasted duplicate tests, specialists referrals ALL because hospitals/doctors afraid of lawsuits!
    UNLIKE you though I"ll Prove it to you!!!'

    1,231 physicians...(90%) Ninety percent of physicians surveyed said
    "doctors overtest and overtreat to protect themselves from malpractice lawsuits."
    "Defensive medicine is when doctors order multiple tests, MRIs and other procedures, not because the patient needs them, but to protect against litigation based on allegations that something should have been done but wasn’t. according to the survey published Monday in Archives of Internal Medicine.
    Besides more time-consuming appointments, patients are left with fewer services and less access to quality care as doctors either narrow their practices or leave the profession entirely."
    http://www.sfexaminer.com/opinion/Examiner-editorial-Obama-wont-take-on-trial-lawyers-in-speech-57953202.htm

    In a 2010 Jackson Healthcare Physician Survey one doctor noted: "I have to view every patient as a potential plaintiff.."

    http://www.patientsforfaircompensation.org/media/7142/pfc_wp-0612_lr.pdf

    In a recent Gallup survey, physicians attributed 34 percent of overall healthcare costs to defensive medicine and 21 percent of their practice to be defensive in nature. Specifically, they estimated that 35 percent of diagnostic tests, 29 percent of lab tests, 19 percent of hospitalizations, 14 percent of prescriptions, and 8 percent of surgeries were performed to avoid lawsuits.

    Liability reform has been estimated to result in anywhere from a 5 percent to a 34 percent reduction in medical expenditures by reducing defensive medicine practices, with estimates of savings from $54 billion to $650 billion.
    The costs of defensive medicine


    SAVINGS of $50 to $600 billion a year!!!!! Put that into perspective if just $100 billion a year were saved in duplicate tests,etc. how much premiums would be reduced!!!!

    Well you forgot that the tax imposed on those making over $500,000 will be passed on to the poor and middle class.

    The OP is a health industry profiteer. Once you understand that it's easy to understand his hysteria.
