Thanks to Congressman Frelinghuysen for passing along the list below of the twenty-one tax hikes that the Roberts' ObamaCare ruling leaves in place that will cost taxpayers between $675 billion & $800 billion over the next ten years according to the Joint Committee On Taxation – it all piles up as the statists proceed toward "grabbing all of our stuff" – quote by the inspirational Tea Partier Reverend CL Bryant. Just compare the estimate when the bill first passed to the re-estimate now.
BO's plan is centered around poverty being an essential element of a society in order for tyranny to rule & he is hell-bent on making the American citizenry poor so that a tyrant controlling all of America's once-held wealth rules – namely him. This becomes more & more obvious every day to any one paying the least bit of attention who can connect every third or fourth dot or who can add two plus two & get anywhere near four.
Now the Roberts' decision becomes more detestable to me every passing day – for so many reasons I have highlighted in these messages. The latest despicable revelation is that the ObamaCare bill that passed the Senate had a list of new taxes that ObamaCare contained & the mandate-penalty that Roberts alone called a tax & used to justify the entire matter as constitutional was not one of them.
The tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee outlines the twenty-one taxes below (figures in billions) - a dozen of these, marked with an asterisk (*), target Americans earning less than BO's self determined rich categories of $200,000 per year for singles and $250,000 per year for married couples. Please note that the additional taxes on the affluent (first ones on the list below) are not indexed for inflation meaning that it is only a matter of time before this will turn into another AMT-like problem for people who never thought of themselves as high earners. In the meantime the hidden embedded taxes in many of the others on the list will be passed on to us immediately.
