Barack Obama and the Taxman
When President Barack Obama gave his Deficit Reduction speech in 2011, which scathingly condemned Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI 1st) blueprint to fiscal sanity through some budgetary belt tightening, one can only conclude that Obama’s answer is to tax the rich.
Since it is April 15th, the traditional tax filing deadline date, it is fitting to serenade the occasion with an apropos tune.
The original version of this George Harrison song was on Revolver, the Beatles'' 7th album, released in 1966. The song attacked the high level of progressive taxation in the United Kingdom under the leadership of Labor Prime Minister Harold Wilson.
If one is lulled by the Beatles Taxman cartoon into believing that it has always been this way, wait until next year when Obamacare Qualified Health Plans kick in for almost all Americans. Remember, it's a tax. The original Obamacare enacting legislation allowed for hiring 16,000 IRS agents to enforce provisions. And the IRS believes that it can read your emails without a warrant.
Marylanders do not have to wait until next year to experience egregious taxing tyranny. Now the so called "Free State" has imposed a rain tax.
