Health Care: What Obama Claimed As ‘Largest Middle Class Tax Cut’ IRS Says ‘Will Go Directly To Insurers’

PRESIDENT OBAMA: “It’s Also Important To Note That The New Health Reform Law Includes The Largest Middle Class Tax Cut For Health Care In History, and once it’s implemented; millions of Americans will finally be able to purchase quality, affordable care and the security and peace of mind that comes with it.” (President Obama, Weekly Radio Address, 4/10/10)

IRS: “The Health Care Subsidies Will Go Directly To Insurers, Not Taxpayers” “The IRS does a poor job of managing social programs. … In tax year 2006, the latest year available, IRS made $10 billion to $12 billion in erroneous EITC [Earned Income Tax Credit] payments, according to a study by the Treasury Department’s inspector general. IRS officials argue that the two programs are vastly different. The health care subsidies will go directly to insurers, not taxpayers, giving individuals little incentive to cheat, says IRS spokesman Frank Keith.” (“IRS Lacks Clout To Enforce Mandatory Health Insurance,” USA Today, 4/29/10)

    Does anybody else see the contradiction of calling Obama a “Socialist” on second then attacking him for empowering the corporations and Wall St?

  2. Tom White says:

    Obama’s goal is complete control of every aspect of people’s lives and businesses. He uses any means necessary to achieve this, and will actually promise things that seem to counter this, but these are always deflections. When he is called a Socialist, it is because he pretends to want things for the social benefit of many, but at the heart of everything he does is the undeniable fact that he wants government to be the controller of all. His goal is Dictatorship. He is only using social policies now to achieve his goal.

    “When he is called a Socialist, it is because he pretends to want things for the social benefit of many, but at the heart of everything he does is the undeniable fact that he wants government to be the controller of all.”

    No Tom, Socialism is the unapologetic ideology of wanting collective ownership (government) of free enterprise. Socialism doesn’t really have anything to do with “social benefit” other than that it is inferred that collective ownership is better under a Socialist-model.

    But advocating for strengthening the corporations that Socialism wants to take over is an inherent contradiction. Honestly, this blog is starting to be reminiscent of some of the loony-blogs were when they started calling the war in Iraq as a “war for oil” and started calling George Bush a “Nazi”.

    If Obama were honest about his intentions I would agree. However, it is his goal – as evidenced by his track record – to control all people and all business. Government knows what is best. He uses aspects of Socialism when it benefits his goals, he uses Capitalism when it helps him gain control. He will do or say anything to achieve his goal of total control.

    As I have said, he is not a socialist. He is something far worse. He is simply using the popular aspects of previously failed governments to gain critical mass over the US. He IS a socialist, a fascist, a communist, a dictator and he pretends to be a capitalist if it helps him gain power and control. He says whatever it takes to reach his goals. He is always willing to sacrifice a pawn or even a queen to keep moving on his path. And after he gets most of what he wants, he goes back to collect the compromised bits, using the control he gained by allowing the compromise as leverage.

    He is a liar that is destroying our country.

    During the Bush years, the Media took a fine tooth comb to everything that Bush did or said. They acted properly in their roll to balance the massive power of the office of President with the law and the Constitution. That is no longer the case. Do you think that Bush could have attacked the press for writing “bad” things about him and not face an avalanche of screams from the press? Yet Obama has worked to silence every voice against him. He has the right to present his position, of course, but having Harry Reid write to Limbaugh’s syndication company demanding Rush be censored is WAY too far. His attacks on FoxNews, Beck, Palin, Hannity, you name it – are totally out of line, and the rest of the media plays along.

    The havoc Obama is causing is due to one thing: the failure of the press to act as a watchdog. The constitution grants freedom of the press as a safeguard against an absolute power grab by a president. He now owns them. This has never happened before in a free country, but is common practice in Communist and Socialist countries, as well as dictatorships. While it appears voluntary on the part of some in the media, and indeed is, there is the Chicago Mob tactics that all are aware of. Obama called out Gallup! Said they were a bunch of kids with crayons. They immediately raised his poll numbers. Strange? Perhaps.

    No, Venu. I have seen all I need to see. Obama will destroy this country if left to his devices. I simply do what the other media does not.

    And if you recall, it was not just blogs calling Bush a Nazi. It was the Mainstream Media, who is now perfectly content to watch as Obama uses a Health Reform bill to take over Student Loans and who now has grabbed 51% of the US Economy.

    Call him what you will. I call him a danger to America.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
