We need to extend a thank you to Dennis Cardoza and Jerry McNerney for voting for the Obama health care bill.
Did our congressmen bother to read this 2,500 page bill? Did they notice that hidden in this monstrosity is a tax of 3.8 percent which will be imposed on every real estate transaction in the United States after 2013? If you sell your home to downsize, you will pay this outrageous tax to the federal government to fund this socialist scheme.
One can only conclude that our congressmen don't care about us middle class senior citizens who have earned the right to own property. I guess this is what Obama meant when he told Joe the Plumber that we should spread the wealth around. These Nancy Pelosi puppets need to be voted out.
