Murray Rothbard: “The state is a gang of thieves writ large.”
April 5, 2014
Predictably, over at AOL-Huffington Post, they are celebrating the installation of governmentcare at gunpoint.IRS: Pay your Obamacare “penalty” with your taxes or else.
“The president stood firmly for affordable health care, and the public has responded. Millions who were previously uninsured have reached for the safety net offered by our government. The president and his team deserve great credit,” Marielena Hincapié, the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, wrote last week.
Offered? Didn’t she mean coerced, ultimately at gunpoint? If Obama and his team deserve credit, it is for creating the greatest federal bureaucracy since LBJ declared his phony war on poverty.
The racist Johnson later admitted what the overriding agenda of the “Great Society” was – making sure millions of economic victims voted for the Democrat Party.
“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years,” he boasted on Air Force One.
Obamacare is not so much about corralling millions of new voters. Democrats will leave that up to so-called Amnesty, a law that will create, if enacted, 17 million new potential voting-age citizens by 2036.
In addition to carving out a monopoly for large insurance corporations – what Hincapié and the libs call a loving government safety net – Obamacare will operate as a revenue generating scheme.
According to the CBO, the scam will scare up $771 billion in new government revenue between 2013 and 2022. Meanwhile, additional taxes are waiting in the wings.
“The Democrats knew that the American people would not approve of raising their taxes by hundreds to thousands of dollars each year, so they devised a way to hide it in a national socialized health program instead. They initially hid it as a penalty and not a tax so the people would not think of it as a tax,” writes Dave Jolly.
“Don’t forget to add all of the hidden taxes in Obamacare on medical equipment, income, etc. that could easily add up to over $2,000 in additional taxes for many Americans,” Jolly continues. “If it only affected 20% of Americans, that would still generate another $125.6 billion of tax revenue. These estimates are way on the conservative side and the real tax revenue generated by Obamacare will most likely be much higher.”
Obamacare, in addition to growing an already massively bloated federal government, will fleece the commoners in ways heretofore unrealized. Some of them, like Hincapié and her comrades, will be thankful.
Leave it up to government. Its imagination knows no bounds when it comes to grand larceny.
