We are all aware of the plans President Obama has to Nationalize health care. Although his words deny this, look at the track record so far and it is easy to see he is not a man of his word.
First, he only wanted to bail out GM. Then more bailout. Now, he is hard at work designing cars people will never want. But he will force them on the public with higher taxes on imports.
Now, healthcare is another story. While busy spreading the word that this will be “free”, it will be far from it. Already, governments are busy taxing sinful products. Alcohol, tobacco, etc. People complained that if we allow these items to be taxed, what’s next? Big Mac Tax?
Well, New York City is taxing sugar sodas. Obesity taxes are being considered everywhere. The “health” nuts are smugly smiling at the thought of fat people being forced to eat “healthy”. In theory, this is a good thing. But the loss of personal freedom is astounding.
Now, these people won’t be laughing so hard when the Health Rationing Body, as it is know in the UK, has a look at the numbers. In fairness to Obama, he would deem a name such as “Health Rationing Body” politically incorrect like “War on Terror”. It will probably be given a name like “Medical Access Assurance Bureau” or something that hides it’s true purpose, rationing health care.
As it turns out, it is quite expensive for people to participate in certain activities, and the probability of injury will outweigh the health benefits from exercise. Basketball, football, baseball, soccer and, basically, all sports. Sky diving accidents statistically end in death, which is not a burden on health care, so that will not be taxed. A Sports Participant Tax will offset the extra costs associated with injury prone past times.
And if you live in a High Mugging Zone, a tax increase is to be expected. And if you do physical labor, such as construction, you will pay a High Risk Worker Tax. There will be Workout Taxes, Swimming Taxes, Joggers Taxes and Horseback Rider’s Taxes (remember Chris Reeve? How expensive was THAT!).
So, basically, if you sit around and do nothing, you will pay an obese tax, if you exercise, there will be taxes on that. They get you coming and going, which brings up the Constipation Tax.
Proof positive that Obama’s health plan is a load of crap!
