Hidden Fees within Tax Hike

It’s not just millionaires who’d pay more under President Barack Obama’s latest plan to combat the deficit. Air travelers, federal workers, military retirees, wealthier Medicare beneficiaries and people taking out new mortgages are among those who would pay more than $130 billion in government revenues raised through new or increased fees.

Airline passengers would see their federal security fees double from $5 to $10 for a nonstop round-trip flight and triple to $15 by 2017, raising $25 billion over the coming decade. Federal workers would face an additional 1.2 percentage point deduction from their paychecks to contribute $21 billion more for their pensions over the same period. Military retirees would pay a $200 fee upon turning 65 to have the government pay their out-of-pocket Medicare expenses. They’d also pay more for non-generic prescription drugs. And it’ll cost corporate jet owners a new $100 fee for each flight.

What is it about Democrat Party beliefs that will not take attribution for over-spending to “Hope and Change” we can live with? I don’t know why Barack Obama is campaigning for re-election. Every day of his life he just digs deeper and deeper into what the rest of America is trying to teach their children not to do!

One cannot have what’s not paid for; unfortunately for me I do understand the notion of wanting things, yet not having the funds to procure my wants. It’s a college tuition thing and the Ivy League. Yet we’re here to tell you (children, young adults, gold diggers) and democrats and republicans alike, if you haven’t got the bread you’re just not going to eat.

Hear ye, hear ye, and HEAR YE fine folks, until we all can hear the words straight from Barack Obama’s mouth such as; “Our discretionary spending is out of control,” and “We won’t even consider an earmark!”

It is a very basic ideology: there will come a time when people – as did our Founders’ families stand up and say: No more taxes, let’s reform what we have rather than look to overhaul. But to whomever wants to spend, spend, and spend money that we don’t have, need to get a clue and realize that borrowing from Peter to pay Paul is not working anymore. Furthermore, it really looks like America has run completely out of Peter, Paul, Europeans, and the Chinese.
