There is a new distortion out there and we need to fight it quickly. This is the source.
Though Barack Obama assured the middle class he would not raise taxes on those making less than $200,000 a year, Moore’s research shows that in reality, a significant percentage of the burden will be shouldered by those making $120,000 or less by the year 2016.Somehow this has morphed into headlines all over the internet saying things like.
You remember the president’s promise that when he was elected, no one making under $200,000 would pay a dime more in taxes…Again, whatever you want to call it Alisyn, fines, taxes, penalties, but three quarters of those costs will fall on the backs of families who make less than $120,00 a year, so it’s a big punch in the stomach to middle class families.”
Make less than 120000 a year You might pay for 75 percent of ObamaCare.html
This is complete crap.
They're making it seem like Obama lied about not raising taxes on those making less than 250K.
You only pay this if you don't have any coverage. Yes you personal responsibility fetishists - This is what you need to pay (unless you really can't afford it), for the fact that everyone else is going to take care of your medical bills when you "go to the emergency room" like George W Bush said you could.
They make it seem like 75% of the entire healthcare costs of the United States under Obamacare is going to be paid by these penalties. I don't have the numbers but I have to think that is a teeny tiny piece of our overall healthcare system. The lions share of it will be paid for by people who actually buy health insurance.
While we have been enjoying the fourth of July weekend these nuts have been propagating this lie all over.
Run this search and see what I'm talking about.
I don't see anywhere where anyone is debunking this.
Democrats in office, democrats everywhere please please please call BS on this thing.
