Tax Tax Tax Us to Death

Why is it necessary to inundate the American people with frivolous taxes? Why is necessary to allow the Bush Tax Cuts to expire and still tax us some more? Why is it necessary to put surtax onto the American families to pay for the war in Afghanistan? Is this why the American people decided to oust the Republican from Washington to put in Democrats? I must be a fool to think Democrats were fiscally responsible.

Did you know if Universal Healthcare passes through Congress, we would not see anything implemented for many years? That is because there has to be some capital to institute such a huge project. Americans could pay billions of dollars more in new taxes for a few years before they're likely to see any significant change in the nation's healthcare system under legislation that Congress is considering. Republicans say there's no guarantee that even that money will be enough, and in the meantime, higher taxes could stifle an ailing economy.

How much could Obamacare cost? Congress' nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that taxpayers will fork over $30.9 billion more beginning in 2011, $31.7 billion the next year and $45 billion in 2013. By then, it still might not be apparent what they’re paying for.

Is this why Obama got voted in? The American people were duped by a fast talking, smoothing operating car salesman. It is true of the saying that there is a sucker born every minute.
