Remember when the liberal Mr Matt Reed said that Obamacare is great and that it would save families $2500 a year; that you could keep your doctor; that you could keep your health plan. We beseeched Mr Reed and other Elites to please learn what Obamacare truly contained. Of course that didnt fit Mr Reed or other Elites agenda.What happened was the exact opposite. But that is old history…
Courtesy of Obamacare, on January 1, 2016:
Medicare tax went from 1.45% to 2.35%
Top Income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.65%
Top Income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%
Dividend tax went from 15% to 39.6%
Estate tax went from 0% to 55%
A 3.5% Real Estate transaction tax was added.
Out of kindness to Mr Reed, I won’t address Common Core at this time.
