At a campaign stop on October 4, 2008, Barack Obama told supporters that health care should not purchased with a tax increase.

“Health care should never be purchased with tax increases on middle class families.”
Via Free Republic:

It was just words.
Nearly 75% of ObamaTax costs will fall on the backs of those Americans making less than $120,000 a year.

  1. She ends it with a bang. Quite a few, actually. Apropos for Independence Day. :D

  2. A car salesman says, “What do I have to do to put you in this car today?”

    Obama, a salesman for a Stalinist collectivization of medical care, says, “What lies do I have to tell you to make you approve this takeover? Because I will totally tell any lie it takes!”

  4. The Day The Republic Died
    On March 8, 2011 a bill was brought up by John Boehner for a vote in the House of Representatives. This was one of the early bills brought to a vote by the new Republican House Speaker. The bill, if eventually passed into law, would have expanded Obama Care. Red State reported it, the mainstream media, including FOX News, did not.

    This day in 2011 was the day our republic died. The significance of this bill was that it exposed a willingness on the part of John Boehner and the House establishment REPUBLICANS to actually vote to EXPAND the very program they were elected by the American people a mere 4 months earlier to “repeal, replace, or defund”.

    Two essential questions need to be asked regarding this vote:

    1) Why in the world did John Boehner even bring this bill to a vote? (Was this a payback for a previous political deal?)

    2) How did our respective Republican representatives vote?

    95 establishment REPUBLICANS supported this bill as it eventually passed in the House. Sadly for those of us in Missouri, the Congressional Record shows that with the exception of Billy Long the entire Missouri Republican delegation voted FOR the bill. Among those casting a “yea” vote from Missouri was now establishment Senate candidate Todd Akin.

    This vote was a canary in a coal mine. It should have served as an early indication to the American people that the Republican House we had just ushered in to power in 2010 had neither the political will nor the courage to stand on principle and fight to do whatever it took to stop Obama Care in its tracks. This lack of political will was later demonstrated throughout 2011 when this same Republican House cut deals with the Democrats to pass a series of CRs which raised the debt while funding the government through FY12. These 2011 CR deals funded early Obama Care programs, Planned Parenthood, the EPA, and a list of agencies and departments as long as Todd Akin’s arm that all Republicans will be campaigning against between now and November 6. Pledges and promises from any Republican who voted for the Obama Care expansion bill or any of the ensuing CRs (For the record – the CR votes implicate Missouri’s Billy Long as well) should be taken with a grain of salt in light of their voting record in 2011. House establishment Republicans extended a funding life-line to Obama Care throughout 2011 to get us to the point to relying on the opinion of a single Supreme Court Justice. So here we are, getting what we deserve because we allowed it to happen.

    Contrary to the opinion of some, John Roberts did not kill our republic with his ruling on June 28 2012. It had been dead for over a year at that point, at least since March 8 2011 if not before then. We just didn’t realize it. We had put our faith in the newly elected Republican House of Representatives then went back to sleep. Although I do not agree in any way with Roberts’s ruling, we got what we deserved for putting all our faith in the Republican establishment in November of 2010 then going back to bed. METALLICA, “Enter Sandman”, are we awake yet?

  5. I just read that France is going to extend its TV tax to computer screens.

    If they copy the Roberts’ decision they will charge one tax for having a computer screen and another tax for not having one.

    Nothing else needs to be added..AB says it all.
    And apropos for Independence Day, this ancient text seems to summarize very well where we are at:

  7. Husseincare and Husseintax are just solutions to the problem of we the people who just want to be left alone.

    ‘There is no neutrality when dealing with people who reject the very concept of neutrality. Who draw everyone into the long columns of their spreadsheets and catch everyone in their spider’s web. There is no middle ground with people who don’t believe there is a middle ground, who believe that every human on earth is part of the problem and can only opt out of being the problem by joining up with them and following their directives.

    That is what we are up against. We confront the Great Solvers of the Human Problem who are determined to arrange everyone and everything to their liking. They began by controlling everything that people did. Now, they have moved on to controlling what people don’t do. If you live, if you breathe, if you stir, move your muscles, track moving objects with your eyes, then there are obligations imposed on you.

    ObamaCare is one of the final declarations that there is no opting out. Even if you don’t drive, own a home, own a business, own a dog, or do one of the infinite things that bring you into mandatory contact with the apparatus of your local, semi-local, trans-local, national or global government, you are committed to a task from maturity to death. Your mission is to obtain health insurance, and, in a system in which you become the ward of the government as soon as you taste air, it is the price that you pay for being alive.

    In a free country, you are not obligated to do things simply for the privilege of breathing oxygen north of the Rio Grande and south of Niagara Falls. But this isn’t a free country anymore; this is a country in which you get things for free. And there is a big difference between those two things.

    ObamaCare is one of the final declarations that there is no opting out. Even if you don’t drive, own a home, own a business, own a dog, or do one of the infinite things that bring you into mandatory contact with the apparatus of your local, semi-local, trans-local, national or global government, you are committed to a task from maturity to death. Your mission is to obtain health insurance, and, in a system in which you become the ward of the government as soon as you taste air, it is the price that you pay for being alive.

    People often talk about the First and Second Amendments, the Fifth comes up, and even the Fourth. But how often do we think about the Third Amendment, that old relic of a time when we were ruled by a distant power with no concern for our lives or our freedoms? “No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner”. It’s one of the few amendments that goes unnoticed. No one challenges it. No Supreme Court blots it out with the stroke of a pen or rephrases it to mean that there is a Constitutional right to abortion or a ban on executing juveniles.

    There is no occupying army quartered in our homes. They have sizable barracks with marble floors, gleaming chandeliers and metal detectors through which you must pass in order to meet with even one of their lower officers. They aren’t quartered in your living room, they rent hotel names and build buildings and send the bill to you. And then they send you another bill, which informs you that they have decided that the War on Obesity, the War on Health Care or the War on the Economy requires you to do a set number of things, the costs of both the doing and the enforcement to be borne by you.’…

    There Ain’t No More Middle-Ground

    Welcome to the United Socialist States of America where 3,000 tyrants are one mile away.

  8. Yes, I lied! Tricked you again! Ha ha!

    Let me be clear, 0bamaTax should never be purchased with tax increase on middle class families… until I am firmly in control. Now, that I am in control my 0bamaTax will be purchased with Tax Increase on middle class families. I lied! Ha ha!

    Middle class family means any Taxpayer in this country who has not donated to my campaign or bought an 0bamaTax waiver. I will hire approximately 10,000 to 15,000 new IRS agents to extract the cash from your family.

    It true the IRS is the largest Revenue collection agency of this country and some of revenuers do carry guns. But, most IRS agents wage war on the middle class with more sophisticated weapons.

    The IRS is armed with your Tax Identification Number or Social Security number and legal subpoenas. Through modern electronic banking they can instantly look into your bank account and if necessary remove your money and give it to me… and they can get your house, your car, all your assets, and every last dime you own!

    Sure, the IRS funds the Treasury Department and the Secret Service – the Secret Service is heavily armed. And, I can assure you that with my authority the can unleash armed agents against you. Pay now before it is too late!

    People say I lie. It is true. But, that is a good thing! I am the best liar this country has ever had!

    I have raised 110,000,000.00 dollars for my campaign. This is the great difference between me and my opponent. He can’t lie and he only has one-sixth of the amount of cash I have. Lying pays well!

    My limousine is expelling noxious fumes and David Axelrod has a new scam to inflict upon my donors. It’s a variation of the “bait and switch” scam. I cannot go into details and I have told you too much all ready. I must go. Good day.

  9. this administration has made lying with a straight face an art form!

  10. life is full of solutions to the world’s biggest problems that are fine on paper but go down in flames when applied to reality. immediately after this 2,700 + page bill was signed, the geniuses discovered they forgot the provisions for children with pre-existing conditions and had to go back in to add them. all of this back slapping and crowing about a program before it starts and the hidden land mines start going off. the dust bin of history is loaded with all the best of intentions that couldn’t live up to all the hype.

  11. there was a couple in ma who had a health policy that was deemed by the state to be inadequate and the state fined them. as in everything else, when obama decides that your healthcare policy doesn’t measure up to what he THINKS it should be………….so many opportunities to abuse the power over other people and so many people with real and imaginary axes to grind. i wonder what kind of gauge [success or not] the chicago annenburg challenge would offer to inquiring minds? re-electing obama could be like hiring the donners [as in the donner party] for a cross country trip.

  12. why isn’t romneycare referred to as patrickcare since he did all the tinkering and has been governor since 2007? he seems to be hiding behind romneys pant legs…..come out come out wherever you are deval. you’d think he’d be demanding recognition rather than hiding in the shadows.

  13. Republicans should make a clip of Obama saying this mandate is not a tax followed by Rep Joe Wilson saying You Lie when he shouted it out at the State of The Union.
