“What’s in YOUR wallet?” - The U.S. Government
I’m wondering if these people who make “Catheters when you have to ‘cath’ (whatever that is, but I recently heard them say 200 per month at NO cost)” and the “Hover-rounds at no cost to you!” are going to get their keester’s reamed.
Medicare is to blame for all this.
(1) Taxes are raised on MIDDLE and UPPER income people, which is what Obama really wants.
(2) The military budget is cut, which is what Obama really wants.
(3) The liberal Demoncrat news media will sell to the same gullible folks that the GOP is to blame for going over the cliff. The sheeple, who aren't interested in facts and truth, will believe what they're told. As a result, the Demoncrats will have another GOP bogeyman to run against in 2014, which is what the Demoncrats really wants.
Obama knows that there's no shortage of stupid in America. They know that they can pin just about anything on the GOP with the help of their propaganda/media arm.
Even if the GOP caves on taxes for the upper income, Obama will manufacture a reason to decline the offer and blame the GOP for the impasse.
Obama and the Demoncrat party WANT to go over the cliff. It's a WIN WIN WIN for them!
Freaking genius to hide the tax increase for ObamaCare in the end of the Bush tax cut, with Republicans getting the blame for both.
ObamaCare taxes = Jiffy Lube
Tax cuts for all or tax cuts for none.
Republicans should walk out and go home.
American people want higher taxes - they should get them.
Controversial? I don't remember the tax on medical devices ever even being mentioned. Odd that it's suddenly "controversial."
It should be, of course. In my opinion, it is the single most important indication that Obamacare isn't about improving Americans' health care -- it's about increasing government's power.
I mean, how much sense does it make to tax medical devices, thus driving their prices higher, when your stated goal is to drive the costs of health care down? And how much sense does it make to tax excellent insurance policies (making their cost higher) when your stated goal is to drive the costs of health care down?
None of this was ever brought up in national media coverage.
Alright, sermon's over. The choir may leave now.
The reason the Republicans aren't calling this the "Democrats' wheelchair tax" is that they are deeply stupid
