The socialist standup routine of Barack Hussein Obama has decided to go “all in” as relates to the extermination of the middle class, capitalism and the free market. You may have thought that his “stimulus plan” (control) was a stretch, you may have thought that his “rescue” (control) of the banks and the insurance institutions was a far fetched grab and you may have thought that his “saving” (control) of Chrysler and GM were outlandish.. My friends, you ain’t seen nothing yet..
In “House Plans to Tax Millionaires to Fund Health Care” (Yahoo news) we learn that the “Democrats plan to fund the broadest U.S. health care expansion in four decades by increasing taxes on the wealthiest Americans..” Doesn’t that sound all nice and sufficiently “class separatist”? Please use the gigantic tax increase imposed by Bill Clinton in 1993 (Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1993) as your barometer for the inherent “flexibility” of the parameters of “wealthy” by the liberal left.. What started out as $250,000 when they were “selling Bill’s bill of goods” sadly but predictably ended up as $43,000.. How does it feel to be “wealthy” once again?
Further we learn that there are “additional taxes on households with more than $350,000 a year in income and calls for further increases if the measure doesn’t hit a target for cost savings.” Since when have the intellectually constipated liberals been “coupon clippers” when it comes to the “revenues” stolen from the middle class? Here the liberals led by mathematical socialist savants like Tim Geithner will be determining this “target of cost savings”.. Here is the bottom line for our new “wealthy” Americans: Prepare for “further increases” and lots of them..
That which was once voluntary is now “mandated” by the Obama oligarchs. It would appear that the Declaration and the Constitution have been supplanted by the progressive platform.. The requisite “coverage and a public health insurance option would cover 97 percent of Americans by 2019..” With the left, the “fine print” will end up killing you.. Literally.. In the end, that is what the Obama minions would prefer.
When a liberal government “controls” health care, you must look to the liberal “beliefs” in order to understand the scope of the “care” that they will be giving you, “care” that you HAVE to take.. Let’s see.. They believe in abortion all the way up to the moment of birth and they espouse and encourage the euthanizing of the elderly and the infirm.. It is as though the nation doctors will be given the Hippocratic Oath by Jack Kevorkian..
Henry Waxman said that “we cannot go home for recess unless the House and the Senate pass bills to reform and restructure our health care system..” As childish as the liberals are, it isn’t surprising that they are threatening to take away “recess”.. This is of course, the precursor to the typical Obama “don’t read it, just pass it and hurry the Hell up” plan for all of their Bolshevik bills.
Again, for the sake of political expediency we read that “Obama has made health care his top priority..” His “top priority” has always been the dismantling of America and he about two or three more “top priorities” away from accomplishing this revolting and repugnant goal..
Dick “Turban” Durbin, called the “Senate’s No.2 ranking Democrat” (when it comes to being “rank”, Durbin has a lot of competition from all of the Democrats..) said that “the chamber is unlikely to back the surtax on high-income people, further clouding the legislation’s prospects..” This wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that EACH AND EVERY member of Congress, with several hundred million dollars to spare, easily falls into the ridiculous “household with $350,000 a year in income” would it? This becomes a “good news, bad news” scenario.. The “good news” is that you are now “wealthy” according to the uber-wealthy limousine liberals. The “bad news” is that once they get done taxing you, you will be right back below the poverty line where you belong..
“The 1,018 page plan for the first time includes details on how to pay for the measure..” Here are the “details”: Step One; Bend over and grab your ankles.. “Don’t ask, don’t tell, 2009”..
Here is where the liberal sense of humor reaches its apex. “If the savings are $150 billion more than expected the government would scrap a planned second set of increases.. if the savings top $175 billion, the surcharge for those incomes would be eliminated altogether..” The liberal “creative math” will NEVER be the impediment towards the theft of more taxes from productive Americans. After all, the liberal Democratic base has some “hospitalin’” to do..
The biggest lie among the myriad of myths promulgated by the left with all of this health care puling is that the poor aren’t getting health care. Go to the emergency room of ANY hospital in ANY major city in America. At least 90 percent of the “patients” there are poor with no insurance yet they are receiving “health care”. Just imagine this emergency room once health care becomes “mandatory”.. If you think health care is expensive now, just wait until it is free..
This is all to be done in relation to “gross adjusted income”. Here we have yet another opportunity to punish those who are making money, those who are creative enough to “produce” income within this socialist liberal Democratic quagmire. Why would anyone want to “make money” when your efforts are forcibly taken from you and compassionately given to the bottom feeders of the liberal left? Mind you, these dividends and capital gains are already taxed at a rate of fifteen percent.. That is not enough when there are those without “health care..”
Even Charlie Rangel, another liberal who “forgot” or “overlooked” when it came to paying their taxes, said this “causes the least amount of pain on the least amount of people..” Who employs people? These people who are in “pain”. Who creates jobs and wealth? These people who are in “pain”.. When they shutter their businesses, Obama is there to “help”.. The left does not want capitalism to create jobs, they want the government to. History has proven that “government created” jobs do nothing more than create more government and we all know what more government creates.. Progressive perpetual motion..
U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donohue said, “Since when does our great free-market country punish success?” Since January 20, 2009 Sir..
The CBO has estimated that this scam will “cost” “more than a trillion dollars over ten years..” Something that will “cost” at least that much has absolutely no chance to “save” $100 billion or $175 billion by 2012, so these “second set of increases” are all but written in stone..
This will allegedly “reduce the number of uninsured by roughly 37 million..” The CBO also says that by 2019, “some 17 million people-about half of them illegal immigrants-would lack coverage..” The misnomer of “border security” will have to be re-titled “the deluge and downpour” as every ILLEGAL alive will certainly die trying to get here.. The “liberal lottery” just keeps getting better and better for those here illegally..
“Obama (will) summon top lawmakers to the White House (the Out House) on July 13 to prod them toward action..” This is all about “action.” “Results” are irrelevant. “Direction” means nothing to them. They are “Ready, shoot, aim” reactionaries who are buffing and polishing up their default “excuse” for their inevitable failure which is the tried and true “we inherited this mess”.. They have CREATED this “mess” and they EXPAND its effects with each passing legislative lunacy.
This is all about CONTROL and nothing more. Isn’t it interesting that back during the halcyon days of the sixties, the liberal called the government “Big Brother” and the “system” and they lived by the adage “question authority”. Come to find out that the only thing bothering the liberals about “Big Brother”/the government is that they weren’t the ones running it..
In Warren Michigan, Obama navigated into uncharted territory. “Don’t be fooled by folks trying to scare you saying we can’t change the health care system..” (“House bill would make health care a right” apnews Myway.) He has used this “scared” scam so often I just have to ask, if you were “scared” of anything, would you join the liberals as they turn to a bony basketball playing Bolshevik for solace?
This article called the legislation “The left leaning plan” and also said that it “lacked figures on total costs..” First off, to call this a “left leaning plan” is the equivalent of calling Rosie O’Donnell “slightly unattractive” and the lack of “figures” with the left and their unending numerical nonsense just “figures”, doesn’t it?
Is it all about “control”? “..a federal council that will make some decisions on benefits..” Another Czar or three? “Some decisions”? The liberals will never allow “some decisions” to be made by anyone other than themselves for they know what is best for everyone and they are prepared to give it each and every American, under threat of further financial fine, with both barrels.. “Under the House Democratic plan, the federal government would be responsible for ensuring that every person, regardless of income or the state of their health, has access to an affordable health plan”.. “Affordable” or effective? Such a question is absolutely irrelevant to the left.. If the federal government is “responsible” for anything, it will be neither affordable nor effective..
