(CNSNews.com) As many as a dozen taxes in the new health care law violate President Barack Obamas campaign pledge not to raise taxes on families earning less than $250,000 and on individuals earning less than $200,000.
At least seven of these taxes directly affect health consumers regardless of income, such as the individual mandate to buy insurance, the employer mandate, the tanning tax, and limits and penalties on health savings accounts. In addition, Republicans argue that the tax impact of the law should include indirect taxes, such as the annual taxes on the health care sector that will be passed on to consumers.

The list, ping
Joe Biden was wrong. This is not a big effing deal.
It's a big effing LIE.
Obama lied - - Liberty died
Is the tanning tax racist?
The media is going to be all over him for his “read my lips” moment, right? Right?
We were told in 1992 that Bush had to go because he broke that pledge.
No. Barack Obama himself tans.
yes. it’s a tax on white people.
He didn’t really mean it or he mis-spoke or he made a mistake. Those are the three excuses “my” liberal relative always uses.
Did he happen to pledge to not become a dictator too?
The media will carry his water like good water boys. No new taxes for people under $250,000. was Obama joking around. None of these people can ever be trusted.
yeah, but the truth — “I am going to ignore a financial crisis and force a government takeover of your health care and tax you to within an inch of your insignificant lives” — wouldn’t have made as effective a stump speech.
Do not bite at the bait of pleasure, till you know there is no hook beneath it.
