Libertarians remind Obama of his “firm pledge” not to tax health care benefits

Sub-Title: 

President considering backing what he called the “biggest middle-class tax increase in history”

WASHINGTON -- America’s third largest party Tuesday reminded President Barack Obama that supporting a proposed $246 billion tax on employer-provided health care benefits – a proposal he opposed as “the biggest middle-class tax increase in history” in campaign ads – would break his promise to oppose any form of tax increase on families making less than $250,000 a year.

Obamacare failed in Europe

Guillaume Vuillemey, a researcher at France's Institut Economique Molinari, and Philip Stevens, a researcher at Britain's International Policy Network write in today's Washington Examiner about how Obama's proposed government takeover of the health care system has worked in Europe.

Hint.  Not so well.

Obama backs what he called "the largest middle-class tax increase in history"

"I pledge that under my plan, no one making less than $250,000 a year will see any type of tax increase...Not income tax, not capital gains taxes, not any kind of tax." - Candidate Barack Obama in Dover, N.H., Sept. 12, 2008

Barack Obama, who won the presidential election promising absolutely no tax increase of any kind for the middle class, is now considering a new multi-billion dollar tax on employer-provided health care benefits -- the very proposal he attacked during the campaign as "the largest middle-class tax increase in history."

Obama Supreme Court nominee overruled by Supreme Court, again

In a victory for individual rights, the Supreme Court Monday announced it is throwing out a decision by Second Circuit Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who ruled the city of New Haven, Conn. could deny several firefighters promotions because the racially-neutral test they passed did not produce politically correct results, and it could theoretically result in lawsuits from special interest groups.

"ObamaCare" not so caring toward the elderly

Noted commentator Matthew Vadum, writing for The American Spectator, highlights what Obama's proposed government takeover of health care means for the elderly.  You may click here to read it.

Here's a hint.  If you're suffering from a painful fracture, Obama tells yesterday's town hall, "maybe you're better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller."

Poll: Few Americans trust Obama, Congress with the economy

A new poll from the independent firm Rasmussen Reports finds what Libertarians have said for years – Americans trust their own judgment on economic issues more than that of President Obama and Congress.
