Last week we may have witnessed the largest tax increase in U.S. history.
The Supreme Court ruled to uphold the constitutionality of Obamacare’s individual mandate under the federal government’s taxing power.
All along, President Obama and his enablers denied that the individual mandate was a tax. Yet when it came down to it, they seemed all too quick to make peace with the Supreme Court’s decision.
Why was it so easy for them to make this mental switcheroo? Because consistency and truth were not the goal. All that mattered was winning five Supreme Court votes.
For this reason I introduced a constitutional amendment to ensure that taxes passed by Congress are labeled as such during the legislative process. Obamacare was upheld on the premise that the individual mandate fell under Congress’ right to lay and collect taxes, even though the mandate was never labeled a tax by the bill’s proponents.
My amendment requires that all taxes be labeled honestly and openly during the legislative process. You deserve to know the intent and consequences of legislation passed by Congress.
Yesterday’s Supreme Court decision clearly illustrated the dangers of deceptive rhetoric by our leaders and perpetuated the lack of trust Americans have in Washington.
I am working relentlessly to ensure that the Obama Administration does not succeed in its attempts to manipulate and strong-arm the American people. You deserve authentic leadership representing you in Washington.
We have seen what the Democrats have done. We cannot afford for them to gain a foothold in the House of Representatives this year. Can I count on your support? Please click this link to make a donation to my campaign.
