VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Here is the truth of what is going to happen. Tax return season is big business for retail of all types. Because all these credits and breaks are going away, people are going to have less money they depend on to spend. Less money to spend means less revenue and profit for business. Less revenue means less jobs. Less jobs mean more welfare and unemployment give out. More welfare and unemployment means taxes have to be raised. This is a downward spiral of an economy.
If you also look at this from a different perspective, who do people tend to vote for if they are on welfare? Democrats because they cater to them with all of the free stuff, (phones, food stamps, ect...) What it looks like to me is the democratic party is trying to create a larger number of voters for themselves.
This is just the latest round of OBAMA screwing us without so much as a "may I?". Twenty-three new taxes in Obamacare, levied almost entirely on the middle class, now this crap which could have been renewed if Obama had any intent to work in a bi-partisan way.
And Obama is not the lone culprit, EVERY Democrat in the Senate and House shares in the responsibility for this whole situation. Reid, Pelosi and Obama said jump, and they replied, How high? And Reid and Obama are still at it. Since Democrats refuse to override Reid, and keep reelecting him to Senate Leader, they MUST share the blame.
House GOP have passed dozens of bills to restart the economy, lower taxes without ever even mentioning Obamacare and they still refuse to allow a vote in the Senate because they want more spending, HOW INSANE IS THAT ????????????????
VOTE OUT EVERY DEMOCRAT IN 2014 and 2016 and give the GOP a shot at it, and if they mess it up also, Time for a Second Revolutionary War ! ! ! ! !
Did anyone hear the latest developments concerning the ACA? Aetna is strongly considering pulling out of the exchanges or imposing a DOUBLE DIGIT increase to premiums for the next year. This decision will occur around mid March which just happens to be the critical dead line for Obamacare's continued existence or death spiral.
If you want to change this, you have to vote out your incumbents in Nov. 2014. I know you might personally like them in your state but if you keep sending the same people to represent you to congress( like Pelosi, Reid, ect...) you're going to continue to get the same inaction/infighting/ political grand standing; and nothing will change for you.
Yes- we all need affordable health insurance but this ACA has had the exact opposite effect. Better start writing your congressperson now and let them know that if this isn't resolved soon, that we'll (Mr. & Mrs. registered voter) send someone to congress who will.
ARE YOU LISTENING FLORIDA CONGRESSPERSONS & REPRESENTATIVES? YOUR PARTY AFFILIATION DOESN'T MATTER ANYMORE !!!
"Another issue is the ongoing economic weakness"
What the hell????? A journalist dared to intimate that there is no economic recovery...????? That the economic situation of the country is NOT positive...????? (I think I just collapsed a lung.) This goes against every economic propaganda article (of which there are a lot) that the media puppets have been shoveling lately. Imagine... the economy is in bad shape... Well I'm going to have to re-think everything now.
