Lies, damn lies and Democratic talking points

It's not a tax, it's an investment.

It's not a tax, it's a fee.

It's not  a tax, it's a penalty.

Pat Caddell (Democratic talker):
This November, if President Obama goes before the voters on the defensive--that is, on a rickety platform of defending Obamacare as a tax increase--it is he who has a huge problem. After all, his healthcare program was sold as a boon to the middle class, with a few regulatory sticks included therein. But if Obamacare can be exposed for what it is--a huge tax increase, the reality of which Obamacare proponents did their best to obscure--then the probability of his survival shrinks dramatically. To be sure, such an exposing of Obamacare as the ObamaTax will not be easy; the White House and the Democrats, as well as their handmaidens in the Main Stream Media, will do their best to armor up against any attack on the tax issue.
Report: 83 percent of doctors have considered quitting over Obamacare

It's not a tax increase, it's an expiration of "tax cuts" that have been the tax rate for 10 years.

It's not letting you keep your own money, it's increased government spending.


  1. In order for the economy to grow, people have to have money to spend.

    When Government --Taxes it away, regulates it away, Fees it away or fines it away-- people can not spend it and the economy stagnates.

    When government gets yours or my it is mostly wasted.

  2. Lies, damn lies and Democratic talking points....


  3. Whatever it is, we don't want it! Trying to tax yourself out of a recession is like a rancher trying to feed himself out of a drought... it ain't gonna happen. Besides that, it's not like this hasn't been done before (see Carter, et al. as the latest example.) It took Reagan to come in and undoo-doo Carter's mess. Now, with Obimbo, we just thought we had it bad with Carter!

    As far as the physicians leaving their practice, I can speak first hand on that. When all this Obimbocare started, one of my doctor's had a sign stuck up on the check-in window (along with everywhere else) that warned his patients about was about to happen. He's since left private practice, gone to work for one of the larger hospitals here, and I'm wondering how long that's gonna last.

  5. Yes, I've always thought of Keynes/Krugman inspired 'Obamanomics' as a serpent trying to sustain itself by consuming its own tail. I would much rather see the serpent consuming: B.O.the Fraud-in-Chief, Nancy the Gargoyle, Harry the Undertaker, Eric the Pettifogger..............
