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.
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.
Remember that BRILLIANT remark from then, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi: "We won't know what's in this bill untill after we pass it."
