Obama Lied, Freedom Died
Let's flash back to the campaign of George H.W. Bush. He promised America that he would impose "no new taxes." The democrats got to him. They promised him that if he raised taxes, they would cut spending. The tax hike came, the spending cuts did not. As if that weren't dishonorable enough, when reelection time came around, the democrats used Bush's "lie" against him to defeat him. Liberals STILL portray Bush the senior as the president who lied about not raising taxes.
Back to the present. During his campaign, Obama pledged repeatedly that he would not raise taxes "a single dime" for the middle class. During his campaign for health care, he repeatedly said the penalty for not buying federal health care was not a tax.
On Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled that the penalty is indeed a tax, meaning Obamacare is constitutional.
Obamacare is the largest tax hike in history. It imposes 21 tax hikes, 12 of which apply to the middle class. Obama lied. Do you think liberals and the media (I repeat myself) will portray it that way? Impossible. Obama will get a pass for his "lie," while Bush Sr. will take his notoriety to the grave.
Once again, the only standards liberals have are double standards.
The ruling that the government can "tax" people who don't buy government insurance means that the government can now not only tax every human action, they can tax every human inaction.
If democrat policies are so wonderful, why do they always have to be forced on us?
