The ObamaCare Fiscal Cliff and obamatax

While Congress and our nation’s news cycles are obsessed with the so-called “fiscal cliff” and the proposed tax hikes on the “rich,” some of the most devastating hits to the wallets of Americans in 2013 are sliding in under the radar: The stealth costs of ObamaCare.

Contrary to the oh-so-earnest promises made by President Obama when he was selling ObamaCare to the nation, the new healthcare law is driving up costs for every American.

Here are just a few of the troubling signs we are seeing…

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Blue Shield of California is looking to increase their rates 13-20% next year.

The Kaiser health plan wants to raise rates 9%.

Bloomberg News is reporting…

“Health insurance premiums may as much as double for some small businesses and individual buyers in the U.S. when the Affordable Care Act’s major provisions start in 2014, Aetna Inc. (AET)’s chief executive officer said.

“We’ve shared it all with the people in Washington and I think it’s a big concern,” the CEO said.

Aetna is our nation’s third largest health insurance company.

Michael Turner wrote on National Review Online that a majority of ObamaCare’s $1 trillion new or increased taxes will take effect in 2013, including…

“An increase in Medicare payroll taxes; cuts in Flexible Spending Accounts; new business taxes; medical device taxes and…Middle-class workers will also be among the biggest losers from the changes that Obamacare imposes on tax-deductible medical expenses – amounting to a $500 tax hike.”

Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-SC) has a list of 20 new or higher taxes being imposed on American families and businesses on his congressional website.

And, as the icing on the cake, Michael Turner reports…

“ObamaCare will add roughly $1.5 trillion to the debt over the next ten years.”

These are at least 20 more reasons why ObamaCare must be defeated in court!

As you may know, Liberty Counsel’s lawsuit against ObamaCare was revived by the Supreme Court late last month.

Thankfully, I will once again be arguing in federal court on behalf of tens of millions of Americans who want to keep ObamaCare’s socialist mandate from doing irreparable damage to our nation.

Because of the remarkable Supreme Court ruling granting a rehearing of Liberty University v. Geithner, our case against ObamaCare, I will be delivering oral argument before the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, contending that mandates in the misnamed “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” are completely unconstitutional!

I believe our lawsuit is now America’s best hope to end the federal takeover of our healthcare system and its deadly impact on our culture.

You can play a pivotal role in derailing Obamacare.

Dear Patriot, I’m asking you to join with at least 100,000 of our faithful Liberty Counsel team members in signing our “Amici Book” for our revived case against ObamaCare.

The all-new “Amici Book,” which is Latin for “Book of Friends” will be placed at our Counsel’s Table…. directly across from Attorney General Eric Holder’s team from the Department of Justice (DOJ)!

With your signature in the book, you can in effect be with me in that federal courtroom.

Please take a moment right now to sign the Amici Book and declare that you will personally stand with me in the daunting challenge of taking on the Obama administration and the Department of Justice:

We have no choice but fighting with all of our might!

As you know, this outrageous law is actually the complete socialization of our nation’s medical system. It MUST be stopped before it destroys our medical services industry, makes taxpayer-funded abortion a permanent part of our culture, and bankrupts our already weakened economy.

Together, we CAN stop this outrageous government takeover of the world’s most advanced healthcare industry in court! Together, we can save America from being turned into just another second-class socialist state!

Dear Patriot, signing our Amici Book HERE will unite you in Liberty Counsel’s cause of defeating an unprecedented expansion of federal power and the outrageous imposition of ObamaCare’s unconstitutional mandates.

Please, send Liberty Counsel into this historic courtroom battle with your prayers, support, and this tangible evidence of your ever-present encouragement! Click here to sign Liberty Counsel’s powerful new Amici Book:

As much as the media has positioned ObamaCare as President Obama’s “crowning first-term achievement,” we know that the law was only passed by sleight-of-hand legislative manipulation, backroom deals, and outright bribery.

That’s why the legal battle against ObamaCare is among the most historic pieces of litigation ever fought in the United States federal courts. And Liberty Counsel’s lawsuit is now at the forefront of all judicial efforts to have the law overturned!

Stand with my team and me once again in this special way by clicking here and adding your name.

THANK YOU for all you do, and especially if you can support Liberty Counsel HERE.

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman Liberty Counsel
