Hypocritical Demos soak the rich

The current healthcare Plan (HR 3962) that has been unveiled by the liberals in the U.S. House of Representatives must be stopped before it becomes an approved legislation.

First, let me make it clear that I am not in the rich and wealthy group targeted by the liberals for higher taxes. However, I personally believe that it is ironic and hypocritical that the Democratic Party, which claims to be so “pro minority” oriented, is actually discriminating against the wealthy minority group in our country.

Webster’s dictionary defines minority as a racial, religious, political, national, or other group thought to be different from the larger group of which it is part. This makes the rich and wealthy citizens in our country a minority group.

According to congressional estimates, the proposed tax increase to pay for the cost of the healthcare plan would only hit approximately 0.3 percent of tax filers: the rich and wealthy, and obviously, a minority of the tax filers.

It is outrageous and unfair to penalize the most successful people in our country by making them pay for everyone else’s healthcare.
