Remember when (September 12, 2008 in Dover N.H.) Presidential Candidate (Senator) Obama promised, “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increases. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”, if not you can see it here.
And now the TRUTH is starting to come out. Here is an article from the New York Times. For those who do not have time to read the entire article here is an excerpt.
When Congress required most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty, Democrats denied that they were creating a new tax. But in court, the Obama administration and its allies now defend the requirement as an exercise of the government’s “power to lay and collect taxes.”
This means that President Obama has just RAISED the TAXES that EVERY citizen of the United States pays. This means YOU!! AND, if you think that because you are one of the 40% that does not pay any income taxes you will not be affected, try this. EVERYTHING that YOU buy (food, clothes, fuel, etc.), will have the price of this Health Care Law included in the final price.
And here is a video of the President saying it is NOT a TAX, in an interview with George Stephanopolis.
Who is LYING, you decide. Let me know what you think.
