NEARLY $3 TRILLION IN TAX INCREASES

When he released his new budget proposal on February 1, President Barack Obama asserted that the government "simply cannot continue to spend as if deficits don't have consequences; as if waste doesn't matter; as if the hard-earned tax dollars of the American people can be treated like Monopoly money; as if we can ignore this challenge for another generation." 
Yet the President's new budget does exactly that -- raising taxes by $3 trillion and federal spending by $1.6 trillion over the next ten years.  If enacted, this budget would increase the 2010 deficit to more than $1.5 trillion, and leave a deficit of more than $1 trillion even after an assumed return to peace and prosperity.  Overall, the President's budget would double the national debt over the next decade, says Brian M. Riedl, an economist with the Heritage Foundation. 
President Obama's budget would: 


* Permanently expand the federal government by 3 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) over 2007 pre-recession levels. 
* Raise taxes on all Americans by nearly $3 trillion over the next decade.
* Raise taxes for 3.2 million small businesses and upper-income taxpayers by an average of $300,000 over the next decade.
* Borrow 42 cents for each dollar spent in 2010.
* Run a $1.6 trillion deficit in 2010--$143 billion higher than the recession-driven 2009 deficit.
* Leave permanent deficits that top $1 trillion as late as 2020. 
* Dump an additional $74,000 per household of debt into the laps of our children and grandchildren. 
* Double the publicly held national debt to over $18 trillion. 

A nearly $1 trillion tax increase is reserved for couples earning more than $250,000 and individuals earning more than $200,000, says Riedl.  Beginning in 2011, the President's budget will increase these Americans' taxes by: 


* Raising the top two income tax brackets from 33 percent to 36 percent, and from 35 percent 39.6 percent ($364 billion). 
* Raising capital gains and dividends tax rates from 15 percent to 20 percent ($105 billion). 
* Phasing out personal exemptions and limiting itemized deductions ($208 billion).
* Reducing the value of tax deductions by approximately one-fourth ($291 billion).

Subject: FW: POISON PILL in Health Reform Bill: Look what Harry Reid Hid deep in the Health Care Bill

Unbelievable - Harry Reid Hidden deep in the Health Care Bill this passage. 

They never stop, they will keep trying to shove this down our throats until they get it through...pass on to everyone... 

The impudent tyranny of Sen. Harry Reid                       
                       
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is proving once again the maxim that darkness hates the light. Buried in his massive amendment to the Senate version of Obamacare is Reid's anti-democratic poison pill designed to prevent any future Congress from repealing the central feature of this monstrous legislation! Beginning on page 1,000 of the measure, Section 3403 reads in part: "it shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection." 

In other words, if President Barack Obama signs this measure into law, no future Senate or House will be able to change a single word of Section 3403, regardless whether future Americans or their representatives in Congress wish otherwise!! Note that the subsection at issue here concerns the regulatory power of the Independent Medicare Advisory Board (IMAB) to "reduce the per capita rate of growth in Medicare spending." 
That is precisely the kind of open-ended grant of regulatory power that effectively establishes the IMAB as the ultimate arbiter of the cost, quality and quantity of health care to be made available to the American people. And Reid wants the decisions of this group of unelected federal bureaucrats to be untouchable for all time. No wonder the majority leader tossed aside assurances that senators and the public would have at least 72 hours to study the text of the final Senate version of Obamacare before the critical vote on cloture. And no wonder Reid was so desperate to rush his amendment through the Senate, even scheduling the key tally on it at 1 a.m., while America slept. True to form, Reid wanted to keep his Section 3403 poison pill secret for as long as possible , just as he negotiated his bribes for the votes of Senators Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Bernie Sanders of Vermont behind closed doors. 
The final Orwellian touch in this subversion of democratic procedure is found in the ruling of the Reid-controlled Senate Parliamentarian that the anti-repeal provision is not a change in Senate rules, but rather of Senate "procedures." Why is that significant? Because for 200 years, changes in the Senate's standing rules have required approval by two-thirds of those voting, or 67 votes rather than the 60 Reid's amendment received. 

Reid has flouted two centuries of standing Senate rules to pass a measure in the dead of night that no senator has read, and part of which can never be changed .    

If this is not tyranny, then what is?  

DON'T SIT BY AND LET THIS HAPPEN IN THE DARK!!!    

FORWARD TO EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST!

Subject: FW: Stimulus Money Saved At Least This Job

Some have said that the stimulus hasn't saved any jobs, but here is a case where at least one job was saved.

  According to an unnamed source, Oregon State University Athletic Director Bob DeCarolis was considering firing their basketball coach, Craig Robinson, after an 8-11 start (2-5  in the Pac 10 conference). 

When word of this reached Washington, Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter was dispatched to Corvallis with $17 million in stimulus money for the university.

The source now says that Craig Robinson's job is safe for this year.  For the record, Coach Robinson just happens to be Michelle Obama's brother.

Subject: FW: Wal-Mart vs. the Morons in Washington

Scary.....what if someone....say China, buys controlling interest in Wal-Mart? 

1 . Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day. 
2.. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute! 
3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year. 
4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target + Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined. 
5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people and is the largest private Employer, and most speak English. 
6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the World. 
7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger & Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only 15 years. 
8. During this same period, 31 supermarket chains sought bankruptcy. 
9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world. 
10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had 5 Years ago. 
11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur At a Wal-Mart store. (Earth's population is approximately 6.5 Billion.) 
12. 90% of all Americans live within 15 miles of a Wal-Mart. 
You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to Fix the economy.

This should be read and understood by all Americans

Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!! 

 

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature, 
 It is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:

  • The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.
  • Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
  • Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars 
 AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??
