    This information is accurate, and can be fact checked at the link below!!

    It's your money, and a lot of it....check it out for yourself!!!!!

    The Backman link at the bottom of the page has a lot of ObamaCare links.
    I thought you might find this interesting, -- maybe even SICKENING!

    The National Association of Realtors is all over this and working to get it repealed, -- before it takes effect. But, I am very pleased we aren't the only ones who know about this ploy to steal billions from unsuspecting homeowners. How many realtors do you think will vote Democratic in 2012?

    Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it? That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc. When did this happen? It's in the health care bill, -- and it goes into effect in 2013. Why 2013? Could it be so that it doesn't come to light until after the 2012 elections? So, this is "change you can believe in?"

    Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% sales tax. Now you tell me, just what the hell does real estate tax have to do with your healthcare?

    If you sell a $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation, -- who often downsize their homes. Does this make your November, 2012 vote more important?

    Oh, you weren't aware that this was in the ObamaCare bill? Guess what; you aren't alone! There are more than a few members of Congress that weren't aware of it either.

    Jim -

    You should probably do some fact checking.

    The tax is on homes that sell for over 250K.

    But it is there, and it is a tax.

    I find it very much more interesting that the bill includes a moratorium on cancer treatments for anyone over 75.I have included one of the hundreds of links related to this. You don't need to fact check it, just make sure you get your cancer before you reach 75.

    Does this mean your treatments stop at 75 if you are having them? Or do you get grandfathered in for starting early?

    Oh, yes, also illegal immigrants will get free health care. Nice.

    It gets even better:

    Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual's bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

    Still more yummy stuff:

    ** Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN).

    There is so much atrocity in this bill it is unbelievable.

    We must eliminate the Obamanation in November.

    Well halfmile, if Judge Kithil says it's true it must be true. That story been around for a couple of years attributed to several sources.

    Your claims are coming from the final version passed by Congress, right?

    This , like Jim Bailey's post, comes from right wing wacko chain emails.

    Sorry Johnny, but the tax is there. However, it only applies to those home sellers with over $250,000 annual income and a profit on the sale of over $500,000 and it is actually a capital gains tax in Obamacare. It's explained very well by Snopes and several other places including the US tax code. If you are at the above income level you could probably hire someone to read and explain it to you but I doubt you ever had those kinds of money problems.

    Johnny, the references to Page and section numbers are easily disproven. Go read them for yourself. I have not seen this one from "several sources". It is always credited to the Judge.

    I do not think it is necessary for the bill to be 2700 pages long unless there are things in there that need to be hidden. The issue of cancer treatments after age 75 has been reported all over the place.

    Here is a link to another doctor's statement reported on snopes. At the bottom is a weak statement about "some analyses" which is virtually meaningless.

    The fact that Snopes is a left leaning gun control advocating organization makes it all the more revealing.

    America haters have gotten control of our government and are desperate to remake the society into a Socialist Utopia. Too bad they have already maxed out the credit card.

    jbailey , where was I wrong? The claim is "all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% sales tax."

    once a tax is created, it never goes away.

    Don't forget in 1916 when the 16th amendment went into effect the average annual income in the US was $750 (?) dollars and the tax rate was around 2% or less.

    Now one hundred years later it is around 15% and it has been up and down during the last 100 years.

    Don't expect this tax on the sale of homes to remain constant or go down. It will only go up and have more of an impact on the investment of a person's home, as home values go up again...................someday in the far future........maybe.

    Poo poo it now, because it seems minor and may not hit your income/investment/tax levels, but some day it will, just like the minimun tax, when it was created, effected very few, but now effects a great many.
