    Except he didnt raise taxes. So other than being completely misleading, just like your other story, you got it right.
    And if he had raised taxes you would be arguing it was the right thing to do to close the budget deficit. At least as long as he was a Democrat.

    Yawn... a misleading thread title trying to make a mountain out of a molehill...


    Oooooooooooo.. people may have to pay a small fee (all people who use the privilege of filing quickly online) to file their tax return... what next? Complaining that they have to put a stamp on it if they mail it and not having the state pay the postage for them?

    I get it. When a republican raises taxes, it's a small fee.

    When a democrat raises taxes it's the end of liberty.

    It's not an official tax, but it's basically deferred (if that's the right word). Tax money was going to run the government provided online filing service, and now it'll be privately run with fees charged to it. If the tax payers aren't going to get a tax break in lieu of this, then it's basically a deferred tax to keep using the system. They'll take the money that was being used to provide the service and apply it elsewhere.

    I'd liken it to a tax maintained road becoming a toll road.

    It's not a tax increase - he ended a transfer payment of giving something for free to certain people that is subsidized by taxpayers.

    So, then you have no issue with the pissing and moaning of Caterpillar as it pertains to "Obamacare"?
