Hump Day Report: If It’s Not A Tax, It’s Not Constitutional

ALOHA, ALL!!  On Wednesday, the ObamaCare Tax comes up for a repeal vote in the House.  Of course, it will be a symbolic vote since it will likely carry in the GOP-controlled House, but fail in the Dem-controlled Senate (that is, if Prince Harry Reid even decides to even put it forward.)  But the vote is important:  it puts Representatives on record regarding their support of the largest tax increase in American history.  Here’s one of the best analyses I’ve seen on how the GOP should  effectively use the ObamaCare Tax as a campaign issue:  The Achilles Heel of Obamacare and Obama – Pat Caddell  “Let Democrats vote in favor of more IRS power in 2012, now that everyone knows that the beating heart of Obamacare is ObamaTax. So one more time: Republicans should seize on the ObamaTax issue–and the entire package of taxes–to remind the voters that the Democrats misled the public in 2010, and, indeed, they are misleading the public still. Taxes are the anvil on which to hammer the Democrats. And dishonesty is that hammer. It’s the tax issue that resonates, twinned inevitably, of course, with the trust issue.”  And:  If Obamacare Isn’t Repealed, How Will It Affect You?

This doctor in Scottsdale has had enough. We’ll be seeing a lot more of these if we don’t elect a GOP majority in Congress and fire Obama.

In Other News…

Another important vote in the House this week.  House GOP Looks To speed US Mining of Rare-Earth Minerals  “The House is poised to pass legislation (HR 4402) aimed at streamlining the approval process for permits to mine for rare-earth minerals, a bill that responds to increased demand for rare earths around the world, as well as China’s export restraints for these minerals.”

Beanbags.  Yeah, that should work.  Outrage:  Eric Holder Disarmed Brian Terry While Arming His Killers     (Shaka to Carl for the link) “For the first time, federal officials revealed Monday that murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and an elite squad of federal agents first fired bean bags — not bullets — at a heavily armed drug cartel crew in the mountains south of Tucson in December 2011.”  

Just when you thought she couldn’t look any more ridiculous.….Debbie Dimwit raises/lowers the bar!  First, on why she hasn’t released her tax returns even thought she keeps pushing Romney to release more than he has.  

Next, she says she’s pretty “happy” with how we’re doing on the jobs front.    Ah Debbie……time to retire.

Sound like a broken record?  It turns out the Obama administration has been telling us to “not read too much into one monthly jobs report”  more than once.  Like about 41 times (shaka to Carl, again):  Broken Record, Broken Promises  “But after 41 straight months of unemployment over 8%, you don’t have to read between the lines to see the truth. President Obama’s policies have failed to get America working again.” #obamaisntworking

His kind of town….Chicago is. In Obama’s Chicago, A Trayvon Martin Every Day   “When more Americans are killed in the president’s hometown than in Afghanistan, even the media take notice. When will the president notice the carnage in the city run by his former chief of staff?”

Final Thought:  

OBAMA: My critics say everything is a tax increase. My critics say that I’m taking over every sector of the economy. You know that. Look, we can have a legitimate debate about whether or not we’re going to have an individual mandate or not, but …

STEPHANOPOULOS: But you reject that it’s a tax increase?

OBAMA: I absolutely reject that notion.

    We also have to remember the unpaid healthcare cost has always been passed over to the paid customers as increased fees by the healthcare institutions. This has been done for many years and is still being done. One way or another we already are paying for these taxes unfairly and unilaterally. We just have to make the right people pay for it to help decrease the healthcare cost as well the insurance premiums we all pay.

      There will always be individuals who need healthcare and are unable to pay for it. While the system we have now isn’;t perfect, it does allow destitute individuals to receive care. Can the system be improved? Yes. But a government takeover of healthcare will lead to so many unintended consequences that will make our healthcare worse, not better.

    Illegal aliens should be treated as invaders–whether armed or not, whether smuggling drugs or not. That means they should be fired upon with lethal weapons on sight, period. But the American people are too wimpy to do that. They would yell and scream when one underage or “innocent” illegal–that is, one guilty “only” of the crime of invading our country–is killed, and so these rules of engagement are put into effect. (And yes, the issue really is that simple and cut-and-dry.) As a result, heroes die and America is less safe.

    Shame on the American people for their moral cowardice.

    • Tom says :

      You know, it really is more and more amazing the more one thinks about it. We are a country which maintains arms for the sole use of destroying cities with millions of “innocent” women and children who just happen to be residents of a country with which we might find ourselves at war, yet we cringe to the point of paralysis thinking about the idea a single child being killed by us when literally part of an invasion of our land.

      Sometimes I say extremely-worded things to get points across and express realistic solutions to issues. Here, though, the more I think about it, the less “extreme” any of this sounds. Instead, it is dead on the money. If the American people want to maintain their homeland, they will have to do WHATEVER it takes–and do so without flinching, without questioning, and with complete guarantees of immunity to those doing the “dirty work”. (And it says a lot about our meek will that we call such work, “dirty”.) Short of that, it is hopeless.
