Big Dan's Big News Oct 5, 2008

The big FAKE show by the 'opposing parties'!

Special commentary by Big Dan: "When it comes to the big issues like the War(s), the Military Industrial Complex, bailing out Wall St. and screwing Main St., and health care, there's no difference between the parties. It's like the FAKE fighting between 2 pro wrestlers both of whom work for the World Wrestling Federation (now the WWE, but what's the difference?). The Democrats 'appear' to be fighting for Main St. and we know the Republicans are Wall St. When push comes to shove, they put on a good show and always end up on the side of Wall St. and they screw YOU: Main St. The 'WWF' they work for is Wall St., the banksters, and's called 'fascism'. They no longer represent us, just like when we had the Boston Tea Party way back when. They put on quite a show, but when all is said and done, it's just a show and they go to the back room when they're done, share a few laughs & drinks & hors d'œuvres, they are all rich millionaires who are not affected by health care, college loans, the war, and things like that. We have nothing in common with anyone from the 'supposed' 2 major parties which are really one party. And we're all suckers! Special note to military families: you're not dying for 'freedom' like the WWF is telling you, you're dying for Wall St. and Big Oil. But I'm sure you know that by now."

An Eyewitness Account of the Boston Tea Party - As Told By George Hewes


McCain health care plan wants to start taxing your employers contribution portion of your benefits, the "invisible" contribution you never had to worry about. Great idea, you senile idiot! McCain doesn't care because he's on the public taxpayer dole for his free lifelong health benefits! After he starts taxing it, he'll give you a $5,000 tax credit towards your $12,000+ insurance! And the $5,000 doesn't go to YOU, it goes directly to an insurance company! What if you switch insurance companies? You'll be on the phone with them, telling them to switch it to another company? Have you ever been on the phone with insurance companies? What if you're unemployed at the time? Sounds like a complicated cluster-fuck! Does this make any sense to you???

Non-partisan health group "Health Affairs": "Achieving John McCain's vision would radically transform the U.S. health insurance landscape, with negligible gains in numbers of covered Americans, and an expected decline within five years."

Health Affairs: Cost And Coverage Implications Of The McCain Plan To Restructure Health Insurance

Senator John McCain’s top domestic policy adviser, former Congressional Budget Office director Douglas Holtz-Eakin, recently said in a conference call with reporters that Mr. McCain’s health care proposal would “put 25 to 30 million individuals out of the ranks of the uninsured, into the ranks of the insured.” In an article released Tuesday, a panel of prominent health economists concludes that Mr. Holtz-Eakin’s projection is off by, well, 25 to 30 million.

Today's issue: health insurance. John McCain wants to tax your employer-provided health care benefits. He wants to replace those benefits with an insufficient tax credit--$2500 for individuals and $5000 for families (the average cost per family for health insurance is $12000).

McCain Health Plan Could Mean Higher Tax

McCain’s numbers add up only by raising taxes on middle-class families. To raise $3.6 trillion by taxing health benefits, you need both income and payroll taxes. But that means an $1,100 tax increase on a typical married couple earning $60,000 in 2013.
