    History is about to repeat itself, boys and girls. And the revolution that's coming isn't for the fainthearted. Keep your powder dry and your prayer life active.

    They moved the liability of the health care tax from the insurance companies (who had to claim the premiums received as corporate income) to the employer (who had to claim it was a taxable benefit payed out) to the workers W-2 (who foot the new bill).

    No "new" tax was created because no new "source" was created.

    They did however, find a new way to screw you.

    So, if it's a tax, why are we giving the money to insurance companies, rather than the government? Does the Constitution give private corporations the right to levy a tax against Americans? I find it laughable that the government, in arguing for the constitutionality of the Obamacare plan through the commerce clause, is now calling it a tax, which makes it about a billion times less constitutional, in legally having private businesses directly tax the citizenry. Bend over, America....

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

    Lies, lies, lies.

    The Chosen One can take any sliver of truth and spin it into the most outrageous lie. Lies, lies, lies.

    No new taxes on the middle class; no federal funding for abortions; no government takeover of the private sector; no known association with ACORN; 1,200 National Guard to the border; three million new jobs 'saved or created'; born in the USA ... ...

    Lies, lies, lies.
