Another ObamaCare Nightmare

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 healthcare bill. 
Just thought you should know.



So, this is "change you can believe in"?

Under the new health care bill - did you know that all real estate transactions will be 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).  You can thank Nancy, Harry and Barack and your local Democrat Congressman for this one.  If you sell your $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax.  This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes.  Is this Hope & Change great or what?  Does this stuff makes your November and 2012 votes more important?

Oh, you weren't aware this was in the obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either (result of clandestine midnight voting for huge bills they've never read). AND, there are a few other surprises lurking.

Why am I posting this?  The same reason I hope you tell this to every single person you know.
An election is coming in NOvember!

Although I despise the health care bill and all that it stands for, I do believe this is one of those rumors that is not entirely accurate. The tax is not to be charged on home sales netting $250k in profit for single people and $500k for married couples.
With that being said, how the hell does a real estate tax end up in a health care bill!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Trestin, is it really funny?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Righty, the Dems never saw a tax they didn't like.

Regardless of the rights and wrongs of Obamacare, what on earth is that clause doing in a healthcare bill? Sit down and read the 2000+ pages VERY CAREFULLY.

Lady, welcome to our Washington DC run by the liberals. They decided to fix a few million peoples health care by ruining everyone elses heath care. They're sharing the misery evenly, as all libs choose to do.
