    ObamaCare Flatlines: ObamaCare Taxes Home Sales - Clobbers Middle-Class Americans

    When did your home become part of your health care? After 2012! Your vote counts big time in 2012, make sure you and all your friends and family clean the white house. It is critical.
    I thought you might find this interesting, -- maybe even SICKENING! The National Association of Realtors is all over this and working to get it repealed, -- before it takes effect. But, I am very pleased we aren't the only ones who know about this ploy to steal billions from unsuspecting homeowners. How many realtors do you think will vote Democratic in 2012? Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it? That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc. When did this happen? It's in the health care bill, -- and it goes into effect in 2013. Why 2013? Could it be so that it doesn’t come to light until after the 2012 elections? So, this is ‘change you can believe in’? Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% sales tax. If you sell a $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation, -- who often downsize their homes. Does this make your November, 2012 vote more important? Oh, you weren't aware that this was in the ObamaCarebill? Guess what; you aren't alone! There are more than a few members of Congress that weren't aware of it either. You can check this out for yourself at:

    I hope you forward this to every single person in your address book. VOTERS NEED TO KNOW.

    “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes,”
    President Obama, September 12, 2008

    Beginning January 1, 2013, ObamaCare imposes a 3.8% Medicare tax on unearned income of “high-income” taxpayers which could apply to proceeds from the sale of single family homes, townhouses, co-ops, condominiums, and even rental income, depending on your individual circumstances and any capital gains tax exclusions. Importantly, the “high income” thresholds are not indexed for inflation so will reach increasing numbers of middle-class taxpayers over time.

    In February 2010, 5.02 million homes were sold, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). On any given day, the sale of a house, townhome, condominium, co-op, or income from a rental property could slam middle-income families with a new tax they can’t afford.

    This new ObamaCare tax is the first time the government will apply a 3.8 percent tax on unearned income. This new tax on home sales and unearned income and other Medicare taxes raise taxes more than $210 billion to pay for ObamaCare. The National Association of Realtors called this new Medicare tax on unearned income “destructive” and “ill-advised” and warned it would hurt job creation.

    How to Nullify ObamaCare if You’ve Got the Guts
    Filed under Constitution, Healthcare, Law, Politics

    NullificationState Representative Mike Ritze from Oklahoma will be proposing a bill that nullifies ObamaCare. No, nullification isn’t when all the white conservatives demand that we bring back black slavery to the states. Nullification happens when the states tell the Feds, “Don’t you forget that we created you, and that we’re sovereign to you. We’re not going to abide by your unconstitutional laws, and if you try to force them on us, you’ll find your agents in jail.”

    Ritze’s bill isn’t just one of those non-binding resolutions that merely states that Obama’s healthcare mandate is unconstitutional. Those resolutions do nothing but make politicians feel better about themselves. It gives them something to point to when people ask them what they are doing to counteract Obama’s tyranny. “Well, I voted for some non-binding resolution saying that ObamaCare was unconstitutional. Doesn’t that count for something?” they might ask. Well, no, not really. Resolutions don’t do anything. In fact, they can make things worse because politicians think that at least it’s doing something, and after they’ve voted for the resolution, they think, “Well, at least we tried.” Resolutions in effect say, “Hey, Feds. We don’t really agree with what you’re doing, but I guess we’ll accept it if we have to. Thanks, bye.” Yeah, I’m sure the Feds shake in their boots when they get non-binding state resolutions voicing their opinions. If only people put as much stock in Supreme Court decisions as they do in empty resolutions. How about something with teeth?

    Ritze doesn’t just call ObamaCare unconstitutional; his bill will criminalize any U.S. government agent who tries to enforce Obama’s brand of healthcare socialism in the state of Oklahoma:

    “Any official, agent, or employee of the United States government or any employee of a corporation providing services to the United States government that enforces or attempts to enforce an act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the government of the United States in violation of this act shall be guilty of a felony and upon conviction must be punished by a fine not exceeding Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00), or a term of imprisonment not exceeding five (5) years, or both.

    Any public officer or employee of the State of Oklahoma that enforces or attempts to enforce an act, order, law, statute, rule, or regulation of the government of the United States in violation of this act shall be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding two (2) years, or by a fine not exceeding One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), or both such fine and imprisonment.”

    It remains to be seen if this bill will pass the House and be signed into law by the Governor, but it’s looking fairly positive. Both the Oklahoma Attorney General and the Governor have voiced opinions consistent with Ritze’s move. But remember what happened when Texas tried to nullify the TSA with H.B. 1937. All it took for the bill to be pulled from the floor was a letter from the DOJ threatening to create a “no-fly zone” over Texas. And that was just about the TSA. Think of the consequences in Oklahoma or any other state if it decides to criminalize federal agents for enforcing ObamaCare. Are the Feds going to threaten to shut down all hospitals? I know that sounds ridiculous, but so does mandating a “no-fly zone.”

    Ritze’s bill is the kind of gutsy move that we need to be seeing all over the country. People need to be outraged. Things will only change when the people and those that represent us in government choose not to be afraid of what the Leviathan state will do if we tell them, “No.”
