In my previous diary I showed the new Obama tax lie.
Obamacare 'HUGE TAX INCREASE' lie
People are still taking the bait.
The claim is its Obamacare IS A TAX, The supreme court says so.
Another variation: It's lots of HUGE NEW TAXES, and here's a list of them.
The counter claim is, well, they're not so bad, and they're mostly on rich people.
as in this graphic:
These arguments inadvertently affirm the premise of the phony one sided accounting of the originqal claims.
These lists count as new taxes - closing loopholes, and reducing tax deductions.
Missing in the HUGE NEW TAX LISTs are the mention of the HUGE NEW TAX CREDITS that totally undermine the numbers they throw around.
This is a trojan horse argument that needs to be cut off at the start.
Is there any merit to the NEW TAX claim?
Well 10% on salon tanning.
