Your taxes are going up. If you think being part of the middle class or supporting Barack Obama will save you, you are dead wrong. There is a lot more going on with the federal budget than fiscal cliff tax rates.
Do Democrats classify small companies by the ease with which their earnings can be turned into tax revenue by applying the Obama fair share principle? Explaining what happens when small businesses hire their 50th employee, this is how the Obamacare resource, HealthCare.gov, separates small companies from large companies:
You are generally considered a large business if you have more than 50 employees.¹
The Small Business Administration defines a small company a bit differently:
The Offce [sic] of Advocacy defines a small business as an independent business having fewer than 500 employees.²
The Republican Party was comfortable with the 500 employee benchmark in its Small Business Tax Cut Act of 2012, the 20% tax cut for small companies that met its demise in Harry Reid’s Senate.
Americans have always hated the idea of a national health care system. Socialized medicine is even harder to choke down because it reeks of government control over an area where at best bureaucracy will make things horribly expensive and at worst can kill us.
After months of waiting, the decision on the health care law is finally at hand. What will happen if Obamacare gets past the Supreme Court and the Medicaid expansion takes place according to plan? Speculation has focused on the individual mandate, but requiring us to bow to turning Medicaid into the president’s public option is at least as damaging as forcing Americans to purchase insurance using the excuse that we need to reign in health care costs.
When did we decide it would be a good idea for our government to be in the birth control business? The uproar over contraceptives, religion, and the health care law distracted Congress from the reality of revisiting the payroll tax cut, battling over the budget, dealing with long-term unemployment, and plotting how best to stall any semblance of progress until after the 2012 election.
