The Dark Truth About Obama That The MSM Will Not Tell You

Obamacare: A new tax on the middle class

The Obama administration claimed that the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) was a “tax cut for the middle class.” However, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported that Obamacare would “reduce payroll taxes for higher-income workers more than for the middle class.” The CBO also reported that Obamacare would “increase payroll taxes for the lowest-income workers.” In fact, for many people, especially those with higher incomes, Obamacare would result in a tax increase. This is because the Obama administration pushed for an income threshold for when people had to start paying for their health insurance. This meant that even people with modest incomes would have to pay for the majority of their health insurance. The Obama administration also ignored the impact that this new tax would have on the middle class. The Obama administration claimed that the tax would only affect the wealthiest Americans. However, this was not true. The new tax would also affect the middle class. The Obama administration's lies about the new tax on the middle class showed a blatant double standard. The Obama administration had claimed that President Bush's tax cuts only benefited the rich and that Bush lied about this. However, the Obama administration then implemented a new tax that specifically targeted the middle class.

Obama's war on medical marijuana

Barack Obama's war on medical marijuana was the biggest of any president. In May 2008, Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt said that Obama would end DEA raids on medical marijuana in states where it's legal. Also in 2008, Obama said that he supported the "basic concept of using medical marijuana for the same purposes and with the same controls as other drugs" and that he was "not going to be using Justice Department resources to try to circumvent state laws." However, Obama's actions were the exact opposite of his words. In February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana grower in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. In February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana dispensary in Culver City, California. In July 2010, the DEA raided at least four medical marijuana growers in San Diego, California. In July 2010, the DEA raided a medical marijuana facility in Covelo, California. In September 2010, the DEA conducted raids on at least five medical marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2011, the DEA conducted raids on medical marijuana in Seattle, Washington, West Hollywood, California, and Helena, Montana, all places where it was legal. In April 2012, the DEA carried out several raids on medical marijuana in Oakland, California. In February 2012, Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Obama's war against medical marijuana went "far beyond anything undertaken by George W. Bush." In April 2012, Mother Jones magazine wrote: "The president campaigned on the promise that he'd stop federal raids on medical marijuana operations that were in compliance with state laws, a vow that Attorney General Eric Holder repeated after the election. But then the Obama administration raided more than 100 dispensaries in its first three years and is now poised to outpace the Bush administration's crackdown record." In May 2012, the Washington Post wrote: "Obama has become more hostile to medical marijuana patients than any president in U.S. history." In May 2012, U.S. Congressperson Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said she had "strong concerns" about Obama's forced closure of five medical marijuana facilities in Pelosi's congressional district. In April 2012, U.S. Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) said: "I'm very disappointed… They look more like the Bush administration than the Clinton administration." In July 2012, federal prosecutors filed civil forfeiture actions against Harborside Health Center, a medical marijuana dispensary in Oakland, CA, which claimed to be the world's largest, and which claimed to serve more than 100,000 medical marijuana patients. In April 2012, federal agents raided Oaksterdam University, an educational institution in Oakland, CA, which taught people about medical marijuana. In April 2012, federal agents raided a medical marijuana facility which had been serving 1,500 patients near Lake Elsinore, CA. In June 2012, the Obama administration filed asset-forfeiture lawsuits against two landlords who rented their buildings to medical marijuana stores in Santa Fe Springs, CA. The Obama administration also sent warning letters which threatened similar legal action to dozens of other, nearby landlords. During the first seven months of 2012, the DEA shut down 40 medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado, all of which had been operating in compliance with state and local law. In April 2013, the DEA raided four medical marijuana dispensaries in Los
