Baucus Breathing Tax Breaks Obama Pledge
by

If you make less than $250,000 a year — a lot less, running from $249,999 all the way down to unemployment — you would face a $750 a year tax for simply drawing a breath. Unlike car insurance, where one must own a car to pay car insurance, Montana Senator Max Baucus, the Democrat who chairs the Senate Finance Committee, is determined to tax you for, literally, having the audacity to breathe without health insurance. Details of the plan, obtained by the Associated Press, show that the Baucus Breathing Tax would go as high as $3800 for those families who fail for whatever reason to breathe without following the Baucus directive to get health care.

This would be a breach with President Obama’s pledge that he would never raise taxes on anyone earning under $250,000.

Word to the wise: don’t hold your breath.
