  • The Unsung, But Massive Obamacare Sales Tax Increase That Is On the Way

    Forbes ^ | Feb 16, 2013 | Lindsay Boyd
    Today, America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) President Karen Ignagni issued a press release in support of bipartisan legislation (H.R. 1370, S.1880) co-sponsored by Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA) and Jim Matheson (D-UT) to repeal the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) health insurance tax. While much of the dialogue on healthcare reform centers on the federal mandate of health coverage for all Americans - which many conservatives call the largest tax increase in U.S history - less attention is being given to the massive sales tax increase on the purchase of health insurance also implicit within the legislation that will dramatically escalate costs...

    Im also issuing a new goal for America, declared President Obama at his State of the Union on Tuesday. Well come to the particular goal he issued momentarily, but before we do, consider that formulation: Did you know the president of the United States is now in the business of issuing goals for his subjects to live up to? Strange how the monarchical urge persists even in a republic two-and-a-third centuries old. Many commentators have pointed out that the modern State of the Union is in fairly obvious mimicry of the Speech from the Throne that precedes a new legislative...

    INKSTER, Mich. (WJBK) - There is a manhunt underway after a gun slinging couple stormed into a tax preparation business. A security guard was shot and the dangerous duo is on the run. "Just seeing that footage and knowing that it's two doors down, yeah, I have to get out of here immediately. It's time to go," said Lillie Heard. She saw the chilling video of the shootout just two doors down from her home on Kean Street in Inkster. The house there has been converted into a tax preparation service.

    When Obama said that he was going to get the folks who did this, he apparently meant jailing the filmmaker who made a Mohammed movie, not the Muslim killers of four Americans. With that job done, he went on yet another golfing vacation. And in Benghazi, the Islamist militia behind the attack is taking power in the city once again. After the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission last fall that left the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans dead, the Islamist militia widely accused of leading the assault all but disappeared amid a popular backlash.

McFarlane, of the 8900 block of South Lowe Avenue, was visiting friends and family in North Chicago when she was shot on her way to a store in the northern suburb, her family said.

    A majority of Americans voted for President Barack Obama, despite having to stand in lines for hours in many locations. The presidents agenda, agreed to by most of America, is to limit ammo clips to 10 rounds, eliminate the further sale of assault weapons and require background checks on gun purchases, whether at a gun show or a sporting goods store a simple concept, agreed on by most Americans, gun owners or not. What the NRA, the star salesman for the weapons manufacturers, hears is that we want to take away everybodys guns and leave them defenseless. This is...

    More than 20,000 protestors from around 160 organizations will swarm the National Mall Sunday in hopes of intensifying the pressure on President Obama over climate policy. The president has not yet detailed the specifics of how he will address the issue, aside from a pledge made in the State of the Union address to take executive action on climate if Congress fails to make progress. Demonstrators are likely to offer plenty of loud suggestions in what green groups are branding the largest ever United States climate rally.

    The Obama administration has prepared a draft immigration overhaul plan that would allow illegal immigrants to obtain green cards within eight years, according to a Saturday report in USA Today. The newspaper reported that it had obtained the draft from an anonymous administration source. The White House has not confirmed the details to be correct. USA Today reported that the draft proposal would create a new visa open to the nation's estimated 11 million illegal residents. The "Lawful Prospective Immigrant" visa -- which would allow a holder to work and travel -- could be obtained after an applicant undergoes a...

They are also women who know what it is like to stretch a budget and juggle the demands of a family. For them, stress is a normal state these days. Walmart Moms dont spend a lot of time thinking about politics, but when they do, it is on a very pragmatic level: Which candidate or party is going to make life better...

If the laws change and all law abiding citizens can buy these products we would be happy to sell to Law Enforcement, but not before then. Thanks for taking the...

Among the issues mentioned by the President for this 21st century agenda were birth control and gay marriage. Over-population is placing an excessive burden on the planets resources, Obama claimed.

    I received the info below from FNCs Thomas Firth but it caught my attention so I thought I would post it. Note that Facebook played it both ways (also giving to Repubs, including Gov Romney) but gave generously to President Obama (numbers below.) Why does Facebook give to both political parties? Just in case Republicans won and they would then want a cozy relationship with the Republicansand because it can (it has a ton of money.) Note also the info about its lobbyistscheck out the jobs they held before became lobbyists for Facebook. Read and tell me what you think.

    Over the last four years, the Obama administration has violated nearly every Article of the US Constitution and every Amendment in the Bill of Rights. They have worked to ignite racial tensions, class warfare, religious confrontations and political divisions far worse than those that led to the first American Civil War. Over 70% of Americans oppose ObamaCare so of course, Obama rammed ObamaCare through in an unprecedented misuse of executive power that shut out the entire legitimate legislative process, as spineless Republicans sat quietly on their hands watching it all happen. The people said no more deficit spendingand no more...

Half of the states have already decided to let the federal government build the new online insurance marketplace for them, while a handful will work with the Department of Health and Human Services and handle limited parts of the exchanges, according to Politico. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, announced on Wednesday that he would be pushing more people into a federally run exchange.
