Every home owner should be "pissed-off" at Obama and the Democrats who helped pass ObamaCare.
Under the new health care bill - did you know that all real estate transactions are now subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax? The bulk of these new taxes don't kick in until 2013 (presumably after Obama's re-election bid). So funding Freddie and Fannie with billions of tax payer's dollars is not enough, we now have to fund health care for the masses.
You can thank Nancy, Harry and Barack and your local Democrat Congressman for this new tax. If you sell your $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. I guess this is what Pelosi meant when she said, "We have to pass it so we know what is in it". Do you feel screwed yet by this "hope and change"? Give me George Bush any day to Obama and the Democrat controlled Congress.
This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes. Is this Hope & Change great or what? I guess we have to vote out this crowd so we can have elected officials who represent us--the American tax payer--and not the socialist crowd.
Oh, you weren't aware this was in the Obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few congressman that aren't aware of it either. There are a many other surprises and taxes lurking in this health care bill that nobody read.
Let's elect men and women who read bills and know what they are voting on before they vote. We need fiscal conservatives in Congress and a leader in the White House.

Governors across the nation must be in control of their budgets and not rely on the federal government to bail them out. Most of the states that are in financial trouble are run by Democrats who have a very liberal and social agenda. They spend money on very liberal union contracts, social programs, and support illegal immigrants. They need to focus on the mission of the state government and do those functions that contribute to public safety and local government functions.
Governors hamstrung by the sluggish economic rebound in their states and bound to balance their own budgets are pressing anew for Washington to step up with more help, some say even if it means adding to the nation's red ink. We do not want the federal government to borrow more money from China to bail out irresponsible states.
Republicans and Democrats alike wrestled with how to capitalize on a fledgling rebound as they talked dollars and sense at their summer meeting just days into a new state budget year and as the economy shapes dozens of gubernatorial races across the country.
"All states still are facing tough fiscal situations even though I do believe we're in recovery," said West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, a Democrat who's taking over as chairman of the National Governors Association.
Added Gov. Jim Douglas, R-Vt., the outgoing chairman: "Governors have done what is necessary to get through this" — repeatedly cutting budgets, restructuring government, laying off workers and draining rainy day funds.
But both men said states can't continue to climb out of the recession alone, and the NGA renewed its bipartisan appeal for Congress to pass stalled jobs legislation that includes billions of dollars in aid to states. The money the federal government has spent has not added jobs to the economy due to the administration's socialist policies.
Just days before the new budget year began in states July 1, the House and Senate failed to complete legislation that would have extended, through June 2011, important parts of the federal stimulus program enacted last year to provide unemployment insurance and help offset recession-driven cuts to education, health care and public safety.
The measure offered $35.5 billion for unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless and $16 billion for Medicaid, the public health care program for the poor. It also would have added an estimated $33 billion to the deficit. This money is not needed.
Bank loans to small business and business-friendly polices are needed. Control of state and the federal budgets are now required.

Due to the "socialist" approach to governing under Obama and the Democrat controlled Congress, we need more states taking the lead in restricting the federal government's role in our lives. Due to the massive take-over of health care, excess debt, high unemployment, unfunded mandates, and the over-taxing of American pay checks, each state should tell the federal government to "take a hike".
We see states trying to get control of what they can from Arizona trying to curb illegal immigration and the crime that it brings to Texas trying to put real history back into the education system. People are tired of liberal progressive (or repressive) elected officials pushing their liberal agendas that go against our Constitution and our values.
We want our federal government to do its job of national security and stay out of the way of our free market system. The Obama socialist agenda is not what we want--we want a smaller federal government with states controlling more of the issues that affect their citizens.
Vote the progressive liberals out of office....
