Congress to America: Shut up and hand over your cash.
In case you missed it because it was released late Friday, House Democrats announced that they will seek a massive $540 billion tax increase to help pay for Obama's healthcare plan.
Honestly, I did miss it. But I can't say I am surprised. For weeks the Congress has been trying to play off the idea that they could come up with a TRILLION DOLLARS out of thin air. The only way that Obama can keep his promise that ObamaCare will be deficit neutral is to hit us, and hit us hard, in the pocket. Even then, I don't think the promise was made to be kept.
Good time to remember Margaret Thatcher's famous words:
"The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."
Damn shame that wisdom is not the Left's forte.
