Duke Talks Sense - for a change

A Duke Professor Explains What
the Health Care Bill Actually Says

As heard on Rushbo, John David Lewis,  a professor of classics at Duke University, read the entire 1017 pages of HR 3200, Obama's 'America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, [For the children and good for Climate Change]'  Here's some of his findings.  For those who don't like suspense, the last paragraph in this, or any critique of Obama, reads "So, he lied."

2.                  Will the plan punish Americans who try to opt out?


What the bill says, pages 167-168, section 401, TAX ON INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT ACCEPTABLE HEALTH CARE COVERAGE:


 ‘‘(a) TAX IMPOSED.—In the case of any individual who does not meet the requirements of subsection (d) at any time during the taxable year, there is hereby imposed a tax equal to 2.5 percent of the excess of—

(1) the taxpayer’s modified adjusted gross income for the taxable year, over

(2) the amount of gross income specified in section 6012(a)(1) with respect to the taxpayer. . . .”




1.      This section amends the Internal Revenue Code.

2.      Anyone caught without acceptable coverage and not in the government plan will pay a special tax.

3.      The IRS will be a major enforcement mechanism for the plan.

That pic is from Capatin-Zero's swearing in on Jan 20th? Karl Marx would be so proud!

Okay, Rodge, that is easily the funniest PhotoShopped pic you've ever done.

If it is a PhotoShopped pic, that is.
