“Your Taxes Won’t Go Up By A Single Dime”

Wasn’t that the promise? Well Americans For Tax Reform have looked at the 1990 pages of the House monstrosity and found 13 taxes that will indeed raise yours by much more than a “dime” [HT: United Liberty[1]]. Here are just three of them. You can take a look at the entire list here[2]. [pdf]

As everyone has been saying since the beginning of the debacle, there is no way this can be paid for without increasing taxes – and not just on the rich. Why that seems to fall on deaf ears in some circles remains a mystery to me. While the taxes may not effect everyone, they certainly effect a large portion of the public. For instance:

Does anyone want to try to make the argument that the 2.5% tax at the wholesale level will be paid at that level and not passed on to the consumer? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

For the masochists out there, here’s the House bill, all 1990 pages of it in pdf form[3]. Make sure you consider the purpose: “To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce the growth in health care spending, and for other purposes.”

“… and for other purposes”. When you see that, you should know to grab your wallets and hold on tight.
