House Passes Bill to Repeal Obamacare: http://weare1776.org/4164/entitlement/u-s-house-of-representatives-passes-nullify-obamacare-bill-229-195/
I don’t think it will pass the Senate and if it does. It wont have the votes to bypass Obama’s veto.
Well, I guess the ObamaCare tyranny has officially begun.
I just noticed something new this year on my 2012 Form W-2:
Box 12b code DD: 4743.96
Instructions: Box 12. DD-Cost of employer-sponsored health coverage. The amount reported with Code DD is not taxable.
Paul Krugman: Bring on the sales taxes and death panels!
Eventually we do have a problem. That the population is getting older, health care costs are rising…there is this question of how we’re going to pay for the programs. The year 2025, the year 2030, something is going to have to give…. …. We’re going to need more revenue…Surely it will require some sort of middle class taxes as well.. We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes… on the middle class, maybe a value added tax…And we’re also going to have to make decisions about health care, doc pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits . So the snarky version…which I shouldn’t even say because it will get me in trouble is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.
Never Forget: Eugenics In America
American eugenics refers inter alia to compulsory sterilization laws adopted by over 30 states that led to more than 60,000 sterilizations of disabled individuals. Many of these individuals were sterilized because of a disability: they were mentally disabled or ill, or belonged to socially disadvantaged groups living on the margins of society. American eugenic laws and practices implemented in the first decades of the twentieth century influenced the much larger National Socialist compulsory sterilization program, which between 1934 and 1945 led to approximately 350,000 compulsory sterilizations and was a stepping stone to the Holocaust. Even after the details of the Nazi sterilization program (as well as its role as a precursor to the “Euthanasia” murders) became more widely known after World War II (and which the New York Times had reported on extensively and in great detail even before its implementation in 1934), sterilizations in some American states did not stop. Some states continued to sterilize residents into the 1970s.
