 Obama health taxes

At this writing, Drudge Report displays the subject of our latest caption contest with the headline:

“Admits: We Did Raise Taxes On Some Things.”

This is a link back to the Americans for Tax Reform site with the same headline.

Then the next paragraphs elaborate:

“Some things” means uninsured families, med devices, flex accounts, small businesses, people with high medical bills and even charitable hospitals.

During his Tuesday remarks at the Clinton Global Initiative, President Obama admitted that his health care law raises taxes:  “So what we did — it’s paid for by a combination of things. We did raise taxes on some things.”

It is times like these that inspire me to quote Frank Sinatra’s song My Way:

And now, the end is here

And so I face the final curtain

My friend, I’ll say it clear

I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain

Those lyrics speak volumes about where President Obama finds himself right now on Obamacare.

So now it’s up to you, loyal contest followers, to write a new caption, create a “thought bubble”, write new lyrics or revise Obama’s speech that he gave at the Clinton Global Initiative when he FINALLY told SOME of the truth about Obamacare.

Due to rivers of political passion that can sometimes rise up and drown our loyal followers, contest rules will be enforced. So all together now, “Be nice and stay classy because the media  is watching,” even though we do not give a hoot!

Finally, just to get you all started, here are a few more verses from My Way:

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew

When I bit off more than I could chew….

Regrets, I’ve had a few

But then again, too few to mention

I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway

And more, much more than this, I did it my way.

Everyone have fun and sing because October 1st and Obamacare are almost here!

My prescription: take two aspirin and drop dead in the morning.

Obamacare: when we say "Frog", you croak!

Just think of it as a post-natal abortion. (Coverage is mandatory under Obamacare!)

"We raised taxes on some things, and some of those things are people. They've sure got a lot of nerve getting all wee-wee'd up about it."
