THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Read entire Obama health care law

I am amazed how everyone reads into things what they want to.

For instance Romney/Ryan wants to give everyone a voucher for medical care for $8,000? My question is how many have pulled up the Obama health care law and read the 2,700 pages?

It will shock the majority of people if they read this in its entirety. As an example, the tax at the end of the year is per person in your household. So, if the tax starting next year is $2,000 and you are a family of four that is an increase in your tax liability of $8,000.

This does not even take into account that as of January 2013 everyone in the United States is going to have their federal taxes increase by 3.8 percent.

The Obama health care law is basically a tax law and puts everyone under Medicaid. How do you think the government is going to pay for everyone being under Medicaid if it doesn’t raise the individual tax for everyone along with everyone not insured paying the additional tax in what Mr. Obama calls a penalty? And then sell your house and see how much Medicaid tax will assessed on the sale of this house, another 3.8 percent.

The law goes on and on. If you really want to be informed, then read the Obama health care law and see how much of this law is going to have a detrimental effect on each and every citizen in America and how it is really nothing more than a tax law. After all the Supreme Court did not say Obama health care was legal, they determined that according to the entire law that it was a tax law which is legal under the Constitution.
