Barack Obama took strong measures to call his New Affordable Healthcare Act anything BUT a new tax. However the Obama Administration is now seeking to defend the health care law on the basis that it is IN FACT, a NEW TAX. The Obama Administration is defending the new law under the government’s right to “power to lay and collect taxes”
The new healthcare costs to corporations and individuals earning over $100,000 was initially cleverly defined as a “penalty”. However the cost of not having insurance will be embraced as a tax and is expected to raise $4 billion a year by 2017, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Just in the last few days it appears he may have lied yet again. As reported by the Concerned Women for America :
President Obama promised that ObamaCare would not fund abortions. Yet now his Department of Health and Human Services has mandated that all Americans pay for birth control for women including contraception, chemical sterilization and the controversial morning after abortion pill -- with no co-pays.
Not only has the president lied, but he continues to recklessly trample individual liberties and undermine the very family values that have been the backbone of our nation for generations. Through his latest actions, Obama is violating the conscience of millions of Americans who have deep moral objections to his abortion mandate.
Though ignored by the mainstream media, Obama’s mandate struck a solemn chord with Concerned Women for America. We aren’t going to let this administration’s actions go unchecked and unchallenged. Through our national petition, we are giving women an opportunity to rally as one in our objection to Obama’s anti-family, birth control mandate.
