Section 431(a) of the bill says that the IRS must divulge taxpayer identity information, including the filing status, the modified adjusted gross income, the number of dependents, and “other information as is prescribed by” regulation. That information will be provided to the new Health Choices Commissioner and state health programs and used to determine who qualifies for “affordability credits.” [...]
[...] Baby Boomers beware. Social Security has already been cut (last week). In a few years it will give out more than it takes in, and then it will be gone. That means that today’s retiring members of the “Me Generation” will be short on cash, at the end of the line for healthcare, and-if this guy has his way-will be left to die when Alzheimers hits. [END]
Does ObamaCare threaten privacy rights, especially regarding federal tax returns? Appparently so, and the news comes from a surprising source. CBS’ Declan McCullagh takes a look at the arcane provisions in HR3200, the ObamaCare bill coming to the House floor once Congress comes out of hiding in September, and notices a disturbing provision that has implications for privacy: [...]
Don't believe me? Just pay attention to the next two weeks. The organization Barack Obama developed to get elected and still leads, Organizing for America, is attempting to hold pro-healthcare rallies throughout the country right before Congress reconvenes. Said another way, the president who swore to represent you is sending his promoters to tell you to support his agenda. Americans, Obama neither listens to you nor cares what you think. [...]
I guess from here on out Connecticut sleazebag Chris Dodd will only be doing open-faced waitress sandwiches.
Desperate to maintain his standing as one of the most corrupt members of the U.S. Senate, the oily Democrat promises to keep carrying out the legacy of his now deceased drinking buddy. So I guess he now plans on driving off bridges, slandering judges, guzzling copious amounts of Chivas Regal and groping drunken women. All that while getting favorable mortgages from shady lenders and helping run our financial system into the ground. [...]
These Democrats are just amazing. Everywhere you look they're up to their ears in corrupt cronies. Just a day after a major Democrat fundraiser was busted for fraud, Minnesota's neophyte senator, the failed comedian, was forced to cancel a fundraiser being held by a convicted swindler. [...]
Considering Charlie Rangel just happened to stumble across nearly $800,000 in previously unreported assets, does it surprise anyone the chairman of the House committee that writes tax law also happens to be a tax cheat? [...]
The swamp of corruption in Washington and the Democrats efforts to turn it into a swimming pool are succeeding. None has benefited so much from the aversion to crack down on criminality in Congress than Rep. Charles Rangel, whose tax evasion and failures to report income are now the stuff of legend. [...]
One of the key issues facing the Obama Administration and politicians around the nation is how to justify massive spending courtesy of the $787 stimulus bill (aka porkfest). Today's New York Times brings the issue of job figures to the forefront.
We get a glimpse of how the government calculates job creation from its various projects. This comes in relation to a New York City transportation infrastructure improvement - the replacement and upgrade of ramps leading to the Staten Island Ferry: [...]
The Democratic headquarters in Denver was attacked. Eleven thousand dollars of damage was done to the building, mostly broken windows. Quickly the Denver Democratic Party Chairwoman Pat Waak was out with a statement:
“We ought to be having a serious, conscientious debate about what’s best for the country,” Waak said. “Clearly there’s been an effort on the other side to stir up hate. I think this is the consequence of it.”
Soon after that statement news broke that a person arrested for the crime was a actually a Democrat activist with quite a history of champing for leftist causes. Maurice Schwenkler is also a transgender activist. With a name like Schwenkler, I guess that shouldn’t surprise anyone. [...]
[...] Now imagine for a moment what Democrats would have said if on the news of President Reagan’s death Republicans all shouted that we must pass Social Security reform to honor him?
It’s appropriate that we spend some time to reflect on the life of an American icon as he passes from the scene. But Democrats only invite negative memories of Chappaquiddick or Borking if they persist in politicizing this event. [...]
[...] Get that? The “property owners” didn’t want a dictator, didn’t want Communism, and that’s bad. Our government even helped them fight against Communism but Chavez, Lloyd’s hero, came back fighting and took over the media…..which is a good thing to our new FCC czar.
He is completely opposed to any privately owned communications.
Read that again.
He want’s a government takeover of our media! [...]
Just when you think the Obama White House couldn’t find any more power to seize… what with already successful takeovers of banks, Wall Street CEO salaries, auto industries, the energy industry with cap and trade, health care and his proposed Medicare czars, and seizing control from the CIA over terrorist interrogations… Boston.com… lets us know what Barney Frank has been tasked with – “…assembling a complex bill to give the federal government unprecedented control over the country’s financial institutions.”
And the ambitious agenda – catering to Obama’s agenda – will be creating the unlikely bedfellows of the Barney Frank liberal/progressive faction and the Ron Paul supporters. [...]
