Obamacare is an attack on the living standards of middle class

To The Daily Sun,

What does $400,000 buy? For Democrats, that sizable sum bought the consulting services of one, very bright economist named Jonathan Gruber who helped design Obamacare using his impact models. Academics like Gruber often have trouble stopping themselves from telling others just how smart they are. Mr. Gruber simply can't keep his mouth shut, describing in detail the more than clever deception involved in getting Obamacare passed. I ask the readers of The Daily Sun: how does that make you feel? Democrats shoved down our throats legislation the majority of Americans screamed they did not want. Now they have the hubris to brag about it.

Gruber's speeches offer personal insights into how and why Obamacare was designed the way it was. It was a bet, specifically, the American electorate were for the most part idiots. He used the word stupid. Anyone recalling The Daily Sun letters from the left during the debate makes it is easy to understand why Obama and Gruber bet on stupid. Now, an Obama insider exposes and confirms the stupid truth.

Obamacare creates more than 20 new taxes. The legislation was disguised exclusively as a tax on business. But the truth is (as Gruber so correctly points out) it was in reality a new tax on you; yes, you the taxpayer and consumer. Every single dollar of new, higher taxes on businesses are passed through directly to consumers. All higher taxes on business are paid for with either higher prices directly for medical care and products, higher prices for insurance, or lower equivalent, wages created by higher employer costs.

For illustration, consider just one of the new taxes. The so-called Cadillac Tax on high-end, health plans costing more than $10,200. Employers are never going to pay the hundreds of millions involved in the new tax penalty. Millions of employees are going to watch their health coverage diluted as employers adjust to the tax cap. This is especially true for union people who often have these expensive plans. To make the dilution of benefits acceptable, employers will likely increase wages as a partial offset. What do higher wages create? Higher income taxes on middle-class wages that replaced benefits that were received previously tax free.

Let me sum up the true intent of Obamacare so even the stupid idiots Gruber described can grasp it. Obamacare's sole focus was always about one thing, and only one thing. That was the redistribution of money from the middle class to the lower class through higher taxes on everything, passed on to them directly by business, including higher taxes on personal incomes. It was done by Democrats using smoke, mirrors, deception and the dependable gullibility of their base.

Obamacare is surely not a transfer of wealth from the rich to the poor. How could it be? The rich represent 1 percent or less of the population. Obamacare was, and is, simply another stealth attack on the living standards of the middle class by the Democrats accomplished with intentional deceit.
The middle class voted solidly with Republicans on Nov 4. There is no question why.

Imagine how awful your life would be like without Jesus

To The Daily Sun,

First, I would like to take a moment to say I have known Bishop Paul Blake for a long time. Some of his letters might seem harsh (to some readers), or even a little bold, and to some a different language. But I know in Paul's heart he wants them to search and find the Lord Jesus. Paul is a very anointed man and truly cares about people greatly.

With that said, I would like you to think about this for a minute. Sadness, pain, despair, loneliness, sickness, and the list goes on. Imagine if you would that as your eternity. That's what it will be without the Lord Jesus — awful. For those of you on the fence about Jesus, that think he exists, but are not 100 percent sure, just what percent is it you think it will take. Just imagine for a minute you are on a airplane, and just before takeoff, the pilot said to everyone there is a 10 percent chance the plane could crash. If you would like to change your mind and get off, it would be okay. Then how many do you think would stay on? So, if there is only a 10 percent chance in your mind that Jesus is real, my hope is that is enough for you to seek and find him. Remember what Lord said, "Seek and you shall find."
