Obama: Mandate is Not a Tax
Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold

  • Item: During last Sunday's television blitz, Obama forcefully objected to statements that the mandate to buy health insurance was a tax increase.  (watch).
  • Item:   Under questioning from Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), Barthold said the IRS would "take you to court and undertake normal collection proceedings."
  • Item: This wasn't persuasive to the committee -- which rejected an amendment from Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) to eliminate the individual mandate (Sen. Olympia Snowe voting with Democrats to keep the mandate).
  • Item, Ensign asked for and received a handwritten memo from Barthold (copied above)
PS. In addition ...
It's not only treated as a tax. but failure to file can cost you an additional  $100,000 fine and 5 years in prison for tax evasion.  So what is it, Mr. Zero? Are you a liar, or grossly unprepared and incompetent? Or both? Ball's in your court.

Turkey Joe Biden

Turkey Joe

 Joe Willy Biden trekked over to Virgina yesterday for some campaigning, and lived up to his reputation for giving uh, interesting sound bites.
"Some of the guys Chuck (Robb) and I have campaigned for are turkeys. Not all Democrats are created equal, while most Republicans are.”  [LA TIMES]
One could use that comparison ungenerously, but instead let us focus on who the turkeys might be.  One, certainly, might be Virginia's first Black Governor, Doug Wilder.
Spurning pleas from the president and the leader of his party, former Gov. L. Douglas Wilder refused to endorse Democrat R. Creigh Deeds for Virginia governor, taking issue with the candidate's willingness to raise taxes in a weak economy.

"That doesn't show leadership and responsibility to me," [WaTimes]
Don't you love this intra-party gobbling?

America's Right

Hidden Treasure

I go to America's right every day, and maybe it's the green font, but I never looked at the section in the right rail called  THINGS HIPPIES WANT TO BLAME ON GLOBAL WARMING.  The list itself is hilarious, and when you find out that each entry links to a sponsoring article, it becomes priceless.  They need to put that on it's own page.


Things Hippies want to blame on global warming

Rejuoy is right.  The list (individually linked) is a great resource that may be overlooked.  Hint to Bloggers: Black on White.   While you're over there, take the The America's Right 'Know Your Protesters' Quiz
