To The Daily Sun,
To my Democratic representative and senator: Whether or not you voted for Obamacare, you are stated supporters of it. If you voted for it, you never read the bill before you voted, which is a problem for me as it makes you an uninformed voter on my behalf. So whether you voted for it or you support it, here's what you have given us as part of Obamacare that kicked in January 1, 2015:
— Medicare tax went from 1.45 to 2.35 percent.
— Top income tax bracket went from 35 to 39.6 percent.
— Top income payroll tax went from 37.4 to 52.2 percent.
— Capital gains tax went from 15 to 28 percent (if you're living off your investments, this is a big deal). Dividend tax went from 15 to 39.6 percent.
— Estate tax went from 0 to 55 percent (over half, really!).
— A 35 percent real estate transaction tax was added
Now we're faced with your vote on the Iran deal and I know you do not have all the facts associated with this. Yet you are going to support it anyway; Jean Shaheen has already confirmed to me that she is. No idea all that was in Obamacare, no idea what is really in the Iran deal, but you are supporting it.
You can see the consequences of voting without all the facts to support the president and party rather than the people with Obamacare, which by the way left 26 medical facilities in this state out of the loop, and now another consequential bill is before you and, once again, not having all the facts, you do the same. Is it too bold of me to ask that you get ALL the facts and know what you're doing before you make decisions on my behalf?
