Over the last several months, Conservative-Daily has kept you up to date with the ongoing Obamacare saga. We highlighted the major Constitutional problems with the legislation and why it will be repealed, at least in part, when the Supreme Court announces its ruling on Thursday. We want to make sure as many Americans as possible are educated on just how dangerous and expensive this piece of legislation really is. We must tell Congress to repeal the entire bill!!
Make no mistake; the individual mandate makes Obamacare the most dangerous piece of legislation to our democracy in the history of the United States. If the Federal government can compel citizens to purchase a product, it can compel citizens to do ANYTHING.
Initial estimates had the legislation costing taxpayers in the United States at least $1.76 TRILLION dollars. That’s right, not billion with a “B”, but trillion with a “T”. However, the Congressional Budget Office has released new figures predicting that Obamacare is even more expensive than originally thought and is now estimating that the bill will cost tax payers $2.6 TRILLION dollars. The price tag for this abomination keeps going higher and higher. During a time of economic crisis, it is flat out STUPID to institute such a costly new measure. From a budgetary standpoint alone, Congress should repeal this bill if the United States ever hopes to climb out of our current economic woes. But hold on, it gets WORSE!
Not only will Obamacare cost taxpayers $2.6 trillion, but it will also RAISE taxes by $525 billion according to the Congressional Budget Office! To be certain, Obama was thorough in his shake down of the American taxpayer. There’s more; Obamacare raises the tax on prescription drugs for retirees by $4.5 billion and increases federal entitlement spending by $401 billion! We must demand that Congress act or our great-grandchildren will be stuck paying for Obama’s lack of financial discipline!
