Here Comes the Taxes

Later this year President Obama will be appointing a special group to look into debt reduction.  The group will be slanted at least 2 to 1 in the Democrats favor and it is almost a lock that they will recommend an increase in taxation.  For those who think this recommendation will be another “tax the rich” scheme it will not be.  Instead they will suggest adopting a form of taxation called the Value Added Tax or VAT tax.  This will do untold harm to our nation’s economy.

First of all what is a VAT tax and how does it work? 

“A VAT is levied on the “value added” to goods and services as they pass through each stage of the production process. (from the Heritage Foundation)”

“No matter how many steps there are in the pro­duction process, a fixed percent of the final price of the product would represent the value-added tax, just as a retail sales tax is a fixed percent of the final product price. However, unlike a sales tax, the cost of the VAT to consumers would be hidden. Unless politicians took the unlikely step of requiring retailers to state explicitly the portion of the sales price that is due to the VAT, consumers would be unaware of the tax. (also from Heritage Foundation)”

So when this VAT is added all levels of production is going to be taxed and worse it’s a hidden tax.  This means that when you go to the store you will see the cost of ALL goods have gone up and you will not know the reason.  This new form of taxation will hit everyone not just the rich and cause business to hire less people because their cost have gone up as well.

The reason why Europe’s tax rate is so much higher than our own is because of VAT.  It is there to pay for all their social welfare programs but one thing it doesn’t do is control government’s spending.  With this hidden source of revenue the people do not notice all the extra money they are losing to pay for wasteful government projects.  This happens in Europe and it will happen here by increasing the tax burden on all Americans and it creates another hurdle that our sick economy does not need at this time.

“American liberals have long complained that ours is the only advanced industrial country without universal health care. Well, now we shall have it. And as we approach European levels of entitlements, we will need European levels of taxation. (From National Review)”

The BEST way to reduce the deficit is to stop spending money the country doesn’t have, start fixing the entitlement programs and get our economy growing again so we can have jobs.

Here Comes the Hard Left Policy’s

My prediction is that from now till November we will see Obama, Pelosi, and Reid will be pushing their left-wing agenda and a whole new pace.  Cap and Trade, Immigration “reform”, Card Check and in other little goodies that think will empower their party.  These people will push members of the Congress to go head and vote for these “Progressive” agenda items and will use the line, “Go ahead you have already thrown away your chance to win, let’s get one more for the ‘people’.”  This could be the most dangerous time for the Freedom of our nation.  They know their strangle hold on power is coming to an end so they must move quickly if they wish to pass any more of their radical agenda.

Georgia’s Fight Against Health Care

For the past few weeks Georgia has had different strategies being pushed to fight changes that Obamacare will bring.  These moves have included two failed attempts at amending the state constitution which would have declared under the 10th Amendment that the state was exercising its right to opt out of the Health Care Law.  Senator Saxby Chambliss joined a group of Senate Republicans on a bill that would have repealed Obamacare.  The latest step taken was today 3/25/10 Governor Sonny Perdue announced that he will be appointing a special Attorney General to file suit against the plan since the State’s Attorney General Democrat Thurbert Baker refused to do it himself.  The Governor’s special attorney general will be another in a growing list of states, 14 so far, suing the federal government over the health care overhaul challenging the constitutionality of the new law.

What is Universal Health Care Really About?

What the Health Care bill was really about is very simple, political power.  The Democratic Party hopes to get as many people hooked on the “freebies” to insure that they continue to vote for them.  I can hear the political ads now, “Vote for Roy the Democrat because his Republican opponent wants to take away your health care, deny you access to your doctor, and give all the money instead to big Insurance.”  This has been the shell of game of the left ever since Social Security was passed.  Once people are on the system and hooked to the goodies they like the system.  Why? Because they are receiving “free goodies”.  The problem is nothing is free.  Just because some are receiving the “benefits for free” the cost is coming out of someone else’s pocket.  You have heard of spreading the wealth around well this is spreading the Insurance.  Coverage will not be improved and likely will become worse.  This bill, now a law, was never about insuring more people but instead it was about expanding the Democratic voting block and giving them an issue to run on from now till the system collapses.

This whole process was sold as an act of kindness and compassion but it is not.  We already have three major entitlement programs in this country and all three are on the verge of collapse.  This bill did nothing to fix Medicare and instead its takes hundreds of billions of dollars from it and the people who are depending on it.  When we move money around, redistribution of wealth, you cause economic upheaval.  The “hated rich” in this country have less money which means less jobs for everyone else.  And when the rich get poorer so does everyone else, thus making more people dependent on government handouts, rather than helping them increase their economic status in life.  

Instead of creating a new Government controlled entitlement program we should be liberating the economic free market to expand, creating new jobs and greater wealth for the people.  When people become hooked on government handouts they become enslaved to them, but when people’s economic situation improves through the free market whole new avenues open up for them.  This is kindness and compassion. 

 Economic liberation and protection of private property will do far more good for the people in this nation then a dependency on Obamacare.

We must demand that the Politicians in Washington liberate us from Obamacare! Repeal the Bill!

Representive Paur Ryan on Health Care Bill

Hear what Representive Paul Ryan says is next in the fight for our freedom, over this Health Care Bill.

Paul Ryan Discussing the Health Care Bill

Remove, Contain, and Repeal: The 3 Steps to Ending Obamacare

Tomorrow President Obama will sign into law one of the worse pieces of legislation in American history and begin the unraveling of the Democratic Party.  The American people overwhelmingly opposed the passage of this bill because of the corruption, the huge tax hikes, the unconstitutional mandates on the American people, and many other things the American people hated.  So with the hatred of this bill comes a hated of something else, the Democratic Party. 

The American people often get sucked in by the feel good redirect of the Democratic politicians and make the mistake of voting them into office, but soon we remember why that is a mistake.  Every time Democrats take control they can’t help but spend, tax, spend, tax, and well you get the picture.  Yesterday they added the biggest entitlement policy ever in this country and with comes huge amounts of spending and larger amounts of taxes.  All this leads to the destruction of the Democratic control in 2010.

The Democrats just handed the Republican’s their platform for November.  The first step will be to get rid of as many Democrats as possible.   Once that happens we will be in a position to try to Repeal the Health Care bill and if this fails to pass, to contain the damage it can cause.  This will not be a short-term fight, but will be one that will take up the remainder of the Obama Presidency.  This will be one of the longest political battles ever and one we must win if our country is to survive.
