Growing List of Obama Tax Hikes

Barack Hussein Obama was elected on a platform of not raising any taxes whatsoever on families making less than $250,000. Yet here are tax increases he has inflicted so far:

• A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco
• Obamacare Individual Mandate Excise Tax
• Obamacare Employer Mandate Tax
• Obamacare Surtax on Investment Income: Creation of a new, 3.8 percent surtax on investment income
• Obamacare Excise Tax on Comprehensive Health Insurance Plans
• Obamacare Hike in Medicare Payroll Tax
• Obamacare Medicine Cabinet Tax
• Obamacare HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike
• Obamacare Flexible Spending Account Cap — aka “Special Needs Kids Tax”
• Obamacare Tax on Medical Device Manufacturers
• Obamacare “Haircut” for Medical Itemized Deduction from 7.5% to 10% of AGI
• Obamacare Tax on Indoor Tanning Services
• Obamacare elimination of tax deduction for employer-provided retirement Rx drug coverage in coordination with Medicare Part D
• Obamacare Blue Cross/Blue Shield Tax Hike
• Obamacare Excise Tax on Charitable Hospitals
• Obamacare Tax on Innovator Drug Companies
• Obamacare Tax on Health Insurers
• Obamacare $500,000 Annual Executive Compensation Limit for Health Insurance Executives
• Obamacare Employer Reporting of Insurance on W-2
• Obamacare “Black liquor” tax hike
• Obamacare Codification of the “economic substance doctrine”

For details, see Americans for Tax Reform.

As Obamunism demonstrates, soaking “the rich” means looting anybody who works for a living.

George H.W. Bush reneged on a promise not to raise taxes. Voters threw him out on his ear at the next opportunity. Unfortunately, there’s a difference this time. All but the dimmest Obama supporters knew he was lying even as they elected him.

  4. Sam Adams says:

    Didn’t Obama say something last night about everyone paying their fair share.

    How about the bottom 50% of income earners start kicking in their fair share for a change?

    It’s truly comical how the dumb commies will spend all day and night trying to keep the lie alive….

    There is NOT ON THING the kenyan downgrade has not lied about and his legion of stupid zombies keep trying to convice everyone that reality is whatever their newest fantasy land deciet is.

    Right on Sam. “tax the rich” has become a bit of Madame LaFarge Kabuki for the lazy, the stupid, and the indolent. If everyone paid the exact same percent then all that crap would “unexpectedly” go away.

    BLACKOUT! Amazingly, for the most part, to a great extent, it was a non-event! No flash mobs, no looting, no beatings, mostly everyone went out and made sure their neighbors were OK then we all got together and partied until power came back on.

    My one neighbor was sure this was terrorism. I told her that as redundant as the system is built to be, it’s complex enough that a simple flaw or mistake could still bring it down and that appears to be exactly what happened.

    She remains unconvinced.

    At least now anyone capable of logical thought knows why we need the southwest power link. Plus, with any luck, they’ll stop opposing every solar or wind or geothermal project on the allegation that some lizard or toad or something will be impacted. And maybe they’ll stop opposing the upgrade of the old power plant in Carlsbad, from it’s current old/inefficient design to a newer, better, CLEANER, GREENER gas fired turbine type, though the NIMBYs are still doing all they can to shut it down and further cripple our ability to generate our own energy here in the county. They’ve pretty much succeeded in ensuring the complete destruction of the south bay plant – it was to continue operation but is now slated for closure at the end of the year with complete demolition to begin as early as 2012 due to a lag in the granting of necessary permits to begin said work.

    Obama has passed the litmus test: He is a communist thief and liar. (Plus he’s a real punk.)

    Black Liquor? Is that like taxing a 40 oz.?

    Yes and it’s unfortunate lao and Logan spend so much time here as that would have raised 3 to 5 and perhaps saved him… for a week or so!

    It is remarkable that a man who campaigned on bringing the country together and who has hectored the nation about civility is now receiving his highest marks for divisiveness and sarcasm

    Poor Daniel. He seems to be upset. I guess all of that cranial cheeze has oozed out and left him in such a state.

  17. Jimbo says:

    I’m middle class. I think liberalism sucks. Liberalism is the ideology of losers, suicidal maniacs, thieves, murderers, pussies, and faggots.

    Liberals will go to hell and curse God all the way there because He has the job they want.

    I’m finding it easier just to scan past ANYthing Daniel
    has to say…at least Dark Eric is occasionally amusing
    in his “loyal opposition” .
    I didn’t know I was POOR until they made it official
    with a graph and poll.
