    Obama Taxes Pacemakers, Heart Valves
    by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann

    The more fiscal details of the health care bills emerge, the more appalling they seem. The Senate Finance Committee bill includes a broad provision taxing all manner of medical devices. This tax includes such frivolous luxuries as pacemakers, stents, artificial heart valves, defibrillators, automated wheelchairs, mechanized artificial limbs, replacement hips and knees, surgical gurneys, laparoscopic equipment and the like.

    President Obama is planning to reduce the cost of medical care by taxing it!

    Why would this surprise anyone?

    They want to tax (or fine) employers that do not provide employees with insurance.

    They want to tax individuals that do not have insurance.

    They want to tax (at 40% no less) people who do have insurance that they deem to be too expensive.

    Of course they now want to tax people when they use their insurance.

    All that's left is to tax people who don't need to use their insurance.

    But don't anyone dare say that all these taxes are taxes or Obama will send his enforcers after you.

    Folks

    I said over a year ago that Obama was a Marxist! He may be a stupid Marxist but he is still a Marxist. I suppose one could argue that only the stupid are Marxist.

    Incidentally I never allow the use of the word stupid in my home so in case it has not been clear in the past you can understand my disdain for Obama!

    This is just more proof that Obama doesn't value the lives of people who need medical care. Some people NEED motorized wheelchairs, hip replacement, ect. in order to live normal lives.

    Obama is sounding more like Hitler every day. Only the "perfect" people are worthy of life. The elderly, sick, or overweight, or physically handicapped should be taxed out of existence. That is what this seems to boil down to.

    Hello,

    Obama is anything but stupid.

    When Republicans where in office last, it seemed like a nightmare. Democrats, we will wait and see. He'll likely be voted for a second term so get use to the guy.

    The Hitler remark is, fanatical in nature. Just to associate the guy with that mass murderer is horrible.

    Well we knew last year, before the election, that he did not value the life of the unborn or just born; yet the people still elected him. I suppose the chickens, as Obama's pastor Wright said, are coming home to roost.

    This nation has tried the patience of God for years, at least since 1973; perhaps this is payback time for the 50 million unborn slaughtered.

    Obama openly supports the mass murder of the unborn. I think he's the one who is fanatical.

    Hello abcgrad94,

    I admire your advocacy for the unborn.

    Obama is supporting what the general population want - pro choice.

    The guy was elected. Is it right? I don't know if any party is right for American anymore.

    Hitler? No. That is horrible. I just can't accept that analogy.

    Take care

    Where do you get this WE stuff?

    Obama is a mass murderer. He supports unlimited slaughter of the unborn and the denial of medical care to babies born alive after a "botched" abortion. One of his first acts in office was to restart the policy of funding of the slaughter of the unborn in foreign countries, The democrats refuse to allow a provision in the Obamacare bill denying taxpayer funding of the slaughter of the unborn.

    Furthermore, this man has done nothing since being in office other than fly around giving speeches. He doesn't even qualify as an empty suit!

    I would not be surprised to see the Congressional democrats march up to the White House demanding his resignation before 2012. But then we would have motor mouth Biden. Sort of between a rock and a hard place!

    Hello OldRegular,

    I take it you don't like Obama in any way or form. He can do no good regardless what the man does. I understand.

    I don't support abortions. No party has seemed able to prevent them.

    The reason that is, the majority of Americans want it that way.

    Time will reveal what Obama does for this country.

    Your profile says that you are in Canada... yet you say "this country".

    Do you mean time will reveal what Obama does for Canada?

    Or is there something else you would like to share with us about yourself?

    "Time will reveal what Obama does for this country. "

    Yep, time has told us he spent the country into oblivian and he isn't done yet. Time has told us that he will abuse power by using his mouth pieces to make any decent sound like the lunatic fringe. He has appointed communists etc. to his immediate staff. He has people that are against the free market system in his staff.

    Yep, time will tell.

    Obama and his thugs handle the nation's business like crime lords. Anyone that disagrees is to be totally destroyed.

    The problem is, that in their vengance, they harm all taxpayers.

    They don't care, as long as they get their money and their pound of flesh and their way.

    Hello,

    My family are Americans, I live in Ottawa.

    I don't mean to anger anyone. I was just giving Obama more credit than being associated with Hitler. He is most certainly not.

    Take care and have a good debate.

    Well, that is the "CHICAGO WAY". Remember Obama was a street walker in Chicago before elective office where he voted "present" unless the bill had something to do with slaughtering the unborn or just born.

    Hitler mostly killed select people, like the Jews. Obama supports killing any person, including unborn African American babies.

    He wants his own civilian police force. He tried this last week to stifle free speech (Fox News).

    And you see no similarities to Hitler?

    Hello,

    I see absolutely no similarities between Obama and Hilter.

    Take care

    This is all Palin's doing in case you want to know!

    She complained about death panels and Odrama decided this would be just as good without the panel :thumbs:

    Mrs. Al A. Tide, look....
    I don't know how you got ANOTHER way into this web-site but since you are here; the Canadian way is NOT the way to go. There are LOTS of GOOD CANADIAN CHRISTIANS here and I don't see them condoning this junk you are espousing.
    Please just take your medications and...and ..ooh...didn't I just hear your name called for a High Clonic?
    Have fun.
