Obamacare Tax Increases Starting — IRS Audits to Increase!

Some of the first tax increases to support Obama care pushed their way through IRS lawyers this week as the nation braces for what will most certainly be a difficult tax year in 2013.  Even if President Obama drives us over the fiscal cliff, and allows all of the Bush-era tax rates to expire, America will still have to contend with increasing taxes brought on by Obamacare.

Tax Increases Under Obama: Closing Loopholes or Increasing Rates — What’s the difference?

We’re hearing a lot on the news these days about the coming tax increases under Obama.  Democrats are insisting on tax rate increases for the wealthy, while Republicans seem to be standing firm on “closing loopholes” to increase revenue.  It’s enough to make your head spin!   Normal Joes on the street are asking why both parties are so entrenched, and why can’t they just work together to keep us from plummeting over the fiscal cliff?

I would submit to you that both parties are already working together too closely, which is evidenced by the ridiculous debate we are having.   What is the difference between closing loopholes or increasing tax rates anyway?  The answer, of course, is no difference.  Whether you “increase revenue” by raising tax rates, or if you do it by “closing loopholes” — the result is the same.  More money will be confiscated from hard working Americans, and their taxes will go up.  We’re debating about how to best raise taxes here folks, that is it!  Republicans are not standing firm and refusing to raise taxes, but instead seem to be looking for a way to do it that will allow them to get out of their no-new-taxes pledge without upsetting the American public too much.
