Obama Admin: We Lied, Health Care Mandate IS a Tax

Remember when the socialists were telling us all the lies about their unconstitutional government health care bill? Remember the lies about how we supposedly weren’t going to be required to buy health insurance…even though their law clearly says we will?

Even though their bill has a new payroll deduction systemto rob you before you even get a chance to see all the money you’ve earned?

Remember how socialists like Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) insisted this new government requirement for you to fork over your money for health care insurance you may not want isn’t a tax?

Well, now that they have their way, the socialists are starting to admit that, yes, it is a tax.

The burden of Northern history

There has been a spate of books on America’s presumed decline in recent days. Most now and ever before compare with the rise and fall of Rome. I’ve always thought we should be compared with two empires, Rome and Athens. Or better yet, Rome and Constantinople, equal and opposite cultural counter-forces for at least 1,000 years. But ours are red and blue and their capitals are New York City and Dallas.

This division was identified by Henry James in the late 1800s. “The Bostonians,” which might be seen as visionary today, contrasted the radical feminist and reformer, Olive, with the Southern cousin Basil, who dines with “a six-shooter and a bowie knife.” When asked, “Don’t you care for human progress?” he answers, “I don’t know — I never saw any.”

Freedom of the Press VS. Subsidizing Newspapers

The founders knew the best check on government was the ability of the people and press to speak out against the government and its representatives freely. At the time of our founding, the press (newspapers, pamphlets, letters, etc…) were the only organized vehicles to speak through at the time. Without the “press” of the time, the general public’s ability to get information about issues would have been crippled if not for the traditional means of communications was not protected.

Subsidizing the “business” of the press was not their intention. The only consideration for the founders was protecting liberty by protecting the ability of individuals and organizations like the press to speak out against an oppressive government, and by limiting the power of the government to control the speech against the same government. To suggest that the government should have any role in ensuring a media company’s success in the market place is a total distortion of original intent.
