Lies, Lies, and More Lies

By Caomhin

Let me say this flat out, I am opposed to socialized medicine in any shape or form and while Democrats are out saying that this is not their proposal, this is the groundwork to move us there.  Socialized medicine will have adverse effects on every citizen in this nation, lower the quality of care, make procedures more difficult to come by, lower the number of practicing doctors, and have many other negative effects on our health care system.  Opening competition in the free market and capping lawsuit limits are the two most effective ways in lowering cost and improving quality but Democrats will not pursue either as: 1. they hate the free market and true competition, 2. they will always and forever desire to expand the size and scope of government, and 3.  they do not have the backbone to stand up to the trial lawyers who stuff their coffers.  I just needed to mention this briefly as I will at some point in the future write a post that covers socialized medicine in more detail.

So why the title, “Lies, Lies, and More Lies,” for this particular post?  Easy.  Remember when Obama said that he would not raise your taxes “one cent” if you made less than $200,000?  He was blatantly lying.  If you smoke cigarettes than you already know this as he has increased your taxes already.  As Democrats seek more ways to strip you of your paycheck, I refer you this article on My Way News, I’ve taken the liberty of highlighting certain sections here below:

A proposal to help bankroll universal health coverage with a dime-a-can increase in the price of soft drinks.

Also under consideration are higher alcohol taxes, increases to the Medicare payroll tax and a value-added tax, a sort of national sales tax, of up to 1.5 percent or more.

The tax options include:

– Increasing the price of soda and other sugary drinks by 10 cents a can.

– Applying a potential 2 percent income tax increase to single taxpayers earning more than $200,000 a year and households earning more than $250,000.

– A new employer payroll tax could target 3 percent of employers’ health care expenditures.

– Taxing employer-provided health insurance benefits above certain levels – a less likely option but one that still is in the running.

So unless you never drink soda or alcohol, have a job (ala Medicare withholding from your paycheck), purchase any goods (the value-added tax will result in an increase in prices for all manufactured goods), have a free market group health care plan through work and utilize that plan, than, yes, your taxes are going up under this debacle.  This of course, is another service being provided to you by your Democratic Congress.

Let us also consider this, the weak dollar via the flooding of new dollars in circulation and debt is essentially causing an inflation tax.  The more dollars in circulation, the less valuable the dollar is, which causes inflation (and I truly believe we are headed toward hyperinflation with the increase in money supply and continually low interest rates imposed by the Fed) so while you may have the same income, goods become more expensive to buy, thus lowering your purchasing power.  Feel a little better now?  Also consider that Obama is gearing up to raise your taxes, and you can see the curtain being pulled back slowly but surely.  His Porkfest bill as a giant fail, unemployment numbers are even higher than he had projected if he HAD DONE NOTHING, yet here we are with just about 10% unemployment, a number Obama himself admits that will be eclipsed.  Also consider, the less people that are working, the less money there is for the government to get their hands on which will further increase our unbelievable amount of debt.  They’re going to come after anything they can, believe me.

What’s also important to note here is that they are also targeting specific products, again picking some industries over others, more market manipulation on their behalf.  Democrats are very easy to understand with their regards to tax, if it exists, tax it.   They have exploded the national debt and spending to the point where we are moving rapidly towards a path of being in debt so far that we may never be able to pay it back and the as the payments to our creditors increases they will seek more  revenue in order to meet their payments for these harebrained and anti-free market schemes of theirs and we’re going to be the ones suffering for it.  Now more than ever it is time to take a stand and demand fiscal responsibility from all of our elected leaders on the Federal, state, and local levels.
