Uh Oh, who would have guessed this could happen? Wait... I did. In fact, MANY of didn't just guess but warned this would happen. Clear back in
2010/2011, we warned this would happen. Now here we are. Double the taxes, half the services and isn't life a jolly good time?
The Joint Committee on Taxation recently released a 96 page report on the tax provisions associated with Affordable Care Act. The report describes
the 21 tax increases included in Obamacare, totaling $1.058 trillion – a steep increase from initial assessment, according to the Tax Prof Blog. The
summer 2012 estimate is nearly twice the $569 billion estimate produced at the time of the passage of the law in March 2010.
The core of the article is a chart showing the before (estimate) and now (reality) of what Pelosi, Obama and their buddies came up with as a final
solution to the American Health Care woes. Umm.. Woe is right. Woe is what we have now. Many woes....woe is me for the taxes I'll be paying for this,
for decades to come.
This is the Congressional Report
the article's chart and overall data is
based upon. It looks like it'll be interesting to read over in more depth after I skimmed over it. It's always nice when data sets have clear lines
back to reports they're based on.
I don't know how America bears the burden of the new taxes coming when everyone from the lower classes to the upper-middle are on the razor's edge of
falling at least one class lower ...regardless of the starting point. Quality of life is challenging in many places and unemployment, while somehow
better on the national scene, is running far into the double digits in many areas around the nation.
Add these taxes and overall burden to a system already in this position? It's tough times ahead. No other way to put it, in my opinion.
