During last year’s presidential race the Obama campaign accused John McCain of wanting to “tax health care instead of fixing it.” And this accusation probably contributed to McCain’s demise.

Thus, many were outraged when our new President and his congressional accomplices proposed a very similar health benefits tax—-minus McCain’s $5,000 tax credit.

But a funny thing happened during the the July 4 congressional recess: several public opinion polls revealed that the voters still don’t like the idea of a health benefits tax:

Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., said that public polls conducted over the July 4 congressional recess and reviewed by senators are causing lawmakers to have second thoughts about limiting the tax exclusion for employer health plans.

In other words, the Dems are cowards as well as hypocrites. You can bet, however, that these thieves will find some way to raise your taxes. It’s what they do best.
