Probably the most courageous and perceptive off all elected officials, Congressman Joe Wilson, (R-SC), was right on the merits when he yelled ‘you lie’ in a joint meeting of congress during President Obama’s audacious defense of his sweeping mandated Health Care plan for America in 2009.
Vilified and marginalized for his outburst disrupting the decorum of the Joint Session of Congress, that august body, now mistrusted by over 80% of the taxpaying public, Joe Wilson was vindicated yesterday after the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare.
After 3 years of politicking after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid got the bill passed in the Senate bypassing senate voting rules by invoking ‘Reconciliation’ which only required 50 votes instead of 60 to pass a bill, and in Congress led by then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with a solid majority and in which not one Republican voted for the issue, Pelosi’s prophesy has finally come true: The Supreme Court upheld the bill so ‘we can see what’s in it!”
Despite Obama’s adamant recorded denials that the bill was NOT a ‘tax’, the Supreme Court ruled that it was indeed a ‘tax’ and within the purview of Congress to pass such a tax on the unsuspecting populace.
The bill, all of which has yet to be seen, let alone be understood by businessmen , individuals or politicians who voted for it, will add at least 21 new taxes to all levels of the country’s citizens, will expand the IRS staff from anywhere from 4,000 to 16,000 depending on which report you read, and require over $303B to get up and running with new software to cost at least $5b-$10B over 10 years to enforce while raising an estimated $569B in new taxes.
When all the costs and yet unknown overruns are finally tabulated it will no doubt reflect the plight of the hapless Maine potato farmer who raised potatoes for market at a cost of $.50 per pound and got $.35 at market. Just like the Obama mathematically challenged Secretary of the Treasury Tim ‘the tax man’ Geithner, the farmer added 2+2 and decided in order to show a profit, or a surplus, he would ‘just have to go out an buy a bigger truck!” Preferably from Government Motors.
If the bill had been touted as a substantial tax, the Democrat politicians facing re election never would have voted for it and why Obama and his cabal vehemently denied the charge.
Amazing how when the case finally got to the Supreme Court, advocates arguing before the court claimed it was just such a thing! While no one is quite sure why Supreme Court Justice Roberts voted with the liberals to approve the mandate, one thing is sure, Obama confirmed yet again that when you see his lips move you know he’s lying!
No wonder small and large businesses alike have been reluctant to hire and expand when they have no idea of the full ramification of the 2300 pages of government efforts to obfuscate the true meaning and impact of the bill!
The bill was passed in the dead of night behind closed doors, involved a myriad of ‘special deals’ to vested interests too lengthly to detail here, and permitted lots of loop holes and considerations for ‘Friends of Barry.’
To date over 1231 waivers delaying the taxes have been granted, over half to Obama’s Union Buddies who continue to pile cash into his campaign from contributors to this money laundering scheme.
In addition, the bill spelled out the exemption of the excise tax until 2018 on ‘Cadillac Plans’ for senior union officials who receive unlimited health care benefits for themselves and family the average working taxpayer can only dream about.
When Wilson yelled ‘you lie’ he was taking personal exception to Obama’s statement that illegal aliens would not be eligible for healthcare under the bill. While he may have been wrong at the time, he has now been proven right!
With Obama’s executive order granting a form of amnesty to what is estimated to be over 800,000 illegal immigrants that fit his criteria, they are now considered ‘legal’, eligible to get work visas, driver’s licenses……and health care! The next big thing will be their ‘human rights’ and eligibility to Vote Democratic!
As Obama said: “That’s why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else.
And lest we forget, two of Obama’s extended family, Auntie Zeituni, ordered deported in 2003, and Uncle George, here illegally for 20 years after both avoided deportation orders, were always eligible for health care in illegal alien friendly Boston, Massachusetts. Uncle George was even forced to give up his DRIVER’S LICENSE after a recent DUI and run in with local cops. Did anyone check to see if he had a voting card? Meanwhile, illegal alien Auntie Zeituni gave $260 to her nephews election campaign, which begs the question did Obama mean her when he challenged the Supreme Court decision on campaign financing when he stated the ruling would open up a flood of ‘foreign money?”
With just a little over 4 months to go until the election, you can be sure the fire sale at the White House will continue as it panders for votes from the OWS crowd. Rest assured we will see
student loan forgiveness, mortgage loan reduction, a free texting plan for the “Obama” phone, and recognition of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the rest of the Arab countries freed from ‘tyranny’ by the Arab Spring in exchange for campaign funds raised by Huma Weiner from ‘thankful, peaceful, loyal Arab-Americans’ who just happen to also embrace Sharia Law.
Keep telling it like it is Joe!
