After the big health care vote, President Obama proudly declared: “This is what change looks like.” Never forget those chilling words, folks.
Democrats, for the first time in our history, have given the federal government the power to dictate to each of us what products and services we must purchase — enforced by the IRS.
Nowhere in the Constitution or in any of or founding documents is that power conceived, or granted, to the federal government. Democrats have seized it, assumed it upon themselves to create new powers for themselves at your expense, and at the expense of freedom.
To fund this health care scheme, Democrats have come up with half a trillion dollars in new taxes; they claim it will be imposed on “the rich.” But in reality, they target small businesses, and middle class families. (Nobody’s going to escape this.)There are new taxes on investments, including rental properties that are already underwater, thanks to Democrats’ role in the subprime disaster that wreckedthe economy in the first place. But Democrats made sure to carve out exemptions for the unions that donated $400 million to them last election.
Now, I’m not going to go line-by-line through this monstrosity of a new law to catalogue the impact;soon enough, you’re going to feel it. You’re going to pay for it. You’re going to see the fruits of another big government program that’s impossible to manage and impossible to pay for.
“This is what change looks like.”Change looks like failure.
