Max Baucus, D, Admits Obamacare Raises Taxes on Middle Class. Healthcare Bill Cost Taxpayers $2970 in Just 60 Seconds Just by Being Signed ..

Baucus admits ObamaCare breaks Obama tax pledge

Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., has admitted that some Americans making less than $200,000 per year will face tax hikes under Obamacare. Such tax hikes are a violation of President Obama's "firm pledge" not to raise "any form" of taxes on those making less than $250,000 per year.

During remarks tonight on the Senate floor, Baucus said: "One other point that I think it's very important to make is that it is true that in certain cases, the taxes will go up for some Americans who might be making less than $200,000."

As Americans for Tax Reform has pointed out repeatedly, the healthcare bill signed into law today contains seven tax hikes that unquestionably violate Obama’s middle class tax pledge.

Obama’s promise remains for all to see at the website: “no family making less than $250,000 will see their taxes increase.”

“Senator Baucus has formally admitted that Barack Obama’s central campaign promise was a lie,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. It would have been nice if Baucus had admitted that Obamacare raises taxes on families making less than $250,000 before the day Obama signed the bill into law.”

Healthcare Bill Cost Taxpayers $2970 in 60 Seconds Just by Being Signed

In the 60 seconds it took the President to sign the massive government takeover of healthcare into law, it has already cost taxpayers $2970.

The 20 pens (update: we just found out he used 22, two extra for archives), the President used are custom made from Cross, a Rhode Island based company. Specifically, Mr. Obama used a "Townsend Tango - Black Lacquer/Engraved Rhodium Plated Selectip Rolling Ball Pen" - but his were made custom bearing his signature.

Retailing at $135 a piece, these Presidential memorabilia are really symbols of self-indulgence and further examples of excessive government waste.
