Abraham Lincoln’s 10 You Cannots

“You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.”
“You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.”
“You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.”
“You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.”
“You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.”
“You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.”
“You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.”
“You cannot establish security on borrowed money.”
“You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence.”
“You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.”

Do you want tax increases? Support the health care bill!

I think Democrats are willing to pay higher taxes. The thing is normal Americans with brains don’t want to pay higher taxes that will be used to fund a golf course in a town with more cows than people (I’m not making this up, that was something the Democrats funded in order to “stimulate” the economy. So far, it’s worked great!)

Some Americans (41% of American voters according to Rasmussen), support this bill (and only 26% Strongly Favor). Those Americans are supporting a government takeover of 1/6 of our economy, a government takeover of the student loan market, cuts in Medicare, special deals (if I listed them all this post would never end), and tax increases.

We all know the economy is hurting. Many Americans are unemployed and there’s nothing that would hurt them than a tax increase. Yet, Obama and Company are telling them: Washington knows best.

The following is a list of tax increases in H.R. 4872….

[Source:Gop.gov]

Decrease in high-cost plans excise tax: The bill would delay the effective date of the high-cost plans tax from 2013 to 2018, raise the thresholds for what qualifies as a high-cost plan to $10,200 for singles and $27,500 for families.  The bill would include a carve-out for multiemployer plans that generally cover unionized firms that allows single employees to qualify for higher the family threshold.

New Medicare HI tax on investment income: The bill would impose a 3.8 percent tax, transferred to the Medicare Trust Fund, on investment income for singles earning over $200,000 and families earning over $250,000.  The bill would exempt active income from certain business ownership stakes and expenses and distributions from retirement plans.  These thresholds are not indexed for inflation, so an ever increasing number of Americans would become subject to these investment and wage taxes over time.

Flexible Spending Accounts: The bill would delay the effective date of the $2,500 cap on flexible spending accounts from 2011 to 2013.

Increased Tax on Pharmaceutical Industry: The bill would delay the effective date of the pharmaceutical tax one year to 2011, increases the annual fee within the budget window to $4.2 billion in 2018, and increases the per-year fee in perpetuity to $2.8 billion.

Increased Tax on Medical Device Manufacturers: The bill would change the annual fee with a set dollar amount to an excise tax on medical device sales at 2.9 percent of the price of the device, delayed until 2013.

Increased Fees on Health Insurers: H.R. 4872 would delay the effective date on the net premiums for the insurance company tax from 2010 to 2014, provide an exclusion for certain non-profit insurers and voluntary employees’ beneficiary associations, and increase the annual fee to $14.3 billion in 2018, increasing thereafter annually based on premium growth.

Delay of Elimination of Deductible Part D Subsidy: The bill would end the deduction for the Medicare Part D subsidy two years later-in 2013.

Eliminates Credit for “Black Liquor”: The bill would prevent a byproduct from paper production known as “black liquor” from qualifying for the cellulosic biofuels tax credit.

But obviously, it’s Bush’s fault….

POLL:



The Health Care Summit Accomplished a thing!

Yes, you read that right: the health care summit accomplished something! During the longest eight hours of my life, Obama showed to the American people how arrogant and egocentric he is. He wasn’t willing to listen to Republicans’ ideas, he was only willing to tell us the story of his life. During those eight hours, Obama also showed he can pick his own nose.

And when John McCain was asking for transparency, Obama showed his bitter side, again:

And some people think he’s charismatic. Ha ha.

Answer the poll:

Prayers for Chile.

UPDATE: Death toll rises to 708.
An earthquake hit Chile this morning (3:34 local time). More than 300 people have died as a consequence of this earthquake, and 2 million have been affected. The electricity supply was interrupted. The airport of Santiago has been closed due to structural problems in its main building, and is expected to be habilitated in 48 hours. The local hospitals have collapsed.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of the people affected by this earthquake.

I made the video with a lot of love, so I hope you enjoy it! 😉

God bless the greatest nation on Earth: the United States of America!

Health Care Summit.

After his successful Beer Summit last year, President Obama is back with a Health Care Summit. The following is a list of what to expect:

  • Obama will say the Republican Party is the “Party of No,” even though they have ideas. The Democrats are the ones saying no to our ideas. Arrogance we can believe in.
  • Obama will blame Bush. “In the last eight years…” He needs a new strategy…
  • If you want to count the “uh’s,” good luck! You’ll lose the count.
  • Six hours. Quite an Obama marathon, huh? Don’t count the “I’s” neither. You’ll lose the count again.
  • I heard Pelosi is attending. She’ll lose a couple of pounds. Reid may comment. Maybe he’ll address Obama’s lack of “negro dialect.” Then they’ll both be hypocrites and say reconciliation is great even though they were speaking against it back in 2005! Flip-flops we can believe in!

The Health Care bill is unpopular. Obama, Pelosi and Reid -or as I call them “The Unholy Trinity”- want to push the bill down our throats. But we the people are watching. The health care bill isn’t even about lowering the cost of health care, it’s about the federal government taking over one sixth of the American Economy -the socialists’ dream!
