Democrats Float Bill to Add 95% Tax On Life-Giving Medicines

Liberals say they are “for the little guy?” Well, their proposed 95% tax on life sustaining medicines sure won’t help.

Remember how liberals say they are “for the little guy?” Well, their proposed 95 percent tax on life sustaining medicines sure won’t help the little guy very much.

The greedy, left-wing party hungry for your money at the expense of your health are desperate to find new ways to steal your money.

Democrats want to make common medicines cost much, much more. Per the Washington Examiner:

It’s amazing what controlling Congress with a tiny majority will do for confidence. The top personal income tax rate, which is also the tax rate paid by successful small businesses such as LLCs, sole proprietors, partnerships, and S corporations, would rise from 37% to 43.4%. The corporate tax rate would go up from 21% to 28%, close to the highest rate in the developed world. The capital gains tax rate would rise from 23.8% today all the way to 43.4% for higher earners. A second, “double death tax” would be created by taxing people on their unsold investments at death, assets that would then still be subject to the 40% death tax. Some Democrats are even grumbling that their leaders won’t try for even more tax increases on top of these, such as a gas tax hike or a carbon tax.

Is Biden's Vaccine Mandate Unconstitutional?

Then there’s H.R. 3, the crown jewel of healthcare legislation coming out of Pelosi’s slim majority. The bill imposes government price controls on 250 of the most common prescription medicines, including insulin. In order to make sure that the price control is adopted, the government gives an “option” for the drug to be subject instead to a brand new 95% drug tax. Since people ultimately pay taxes, the 95% Pelosi Drug Tax will fall directly on consumers of prescription medicines, notably seniors.

Behind door No. 1 is a price control that will lead to scarcity, government rationing, and less money for the next miracle vaccine. Behind door No. 2 is a 95% tax on prescription medicines, immediately doubling the price of drugs at your local pharmacy. Either of these bad options would immediately turn the pharmaceutical industry into a bought-and-sold subsidiary of big government, like the electric company or the post office or Amtrak.

So, Biden wants to force the drug industry into ruinous price controls and he is using the weapon of a ruinous tax rate to force them under government control.

Well, that’s pretty democratic, huh?

NYC Restauranteurs Blast De Blasio’s Vax Mandates: ‘We’re Being Assaulted’

The trouble continues for Big Apple eateries.

Just days ago, a wild and unruly bit of viral video made headlines, and reignited a national debate about the possibility of vaccine mandates throughout our great nation.

So far, the only real federal vaccine mandate has come in the form of an order from the Biden administration, declaring that all federal employees would be required to receive an inoculation against COVID-19, as well as employees of any private company with more than 100 workers.

But there are plenty of local and private ordinances that do require vaccination, including a controversial proclamation in New York City that requires vaccines for all restaurant customers.  The aforementioned viral video depicted a group of Texan tourists physically assaulting a restaurant hostess that asked for their proof of vaccination in order to dine in their establishment.

This shocking incident has New York City’s restauranteurs crying foul.

“It’s gonna hurt my business for me to lose customers, to lose relationships with customers. We’re a neighborhood restaurant,” restaurant owner Massimo Felici said, according to NY1. According to the outlet, Felici said the mandate, barring unvaccinated people from dining indoors, has had a negative impact on his business.

“They’re making us police this. We are getting the ripple effect. We’re getting assaulted for it, accused for it whatever you wanna call it. That’s it. Period. It shouldn’t be us,” he added, noting the rules remain unclear to most, as unvaccinated individuals can still dine outdoors.

“You’d be surprised how many people are confused about what’s allowed and what’s not allowed. If you read that, it makes it sound like you cannot come into my restaurant for dinner if you do not have the vaccination,” he said of the city’s signs.

Other establishment owners lamented the reality of the mandates being bad for business, especially as restaurants continue to struggle to reach pre-pandemic prosperity.

Neighbor Recalls Bizarre Camper Movements at Laundrie Residence

This changes EVERYTHING.

Published

on

Brian Laundrie is without a doubt the most sought-after man in America today, and with good reason.

Laundrie returned home to Florida from a cross-country road trip on September 1st, driving a van belonging to his travel partner and fiancée Gabby Petito.  Petito, however, was not with Brian upon his return.

The disturbing developments continued, as Laundrie quickly lawyered up and refused to cooperate with police who were now investigating Petito’s disappearance during their road trip.

Just over a week ago, Brian went missing.  Just days after that, Petito’s body was found in Bridger-Teton National Forest with a coroner suggesting that her cause of death was homicide.

The search for Brian Laundrie has largely been contained to the vast Carlton Reserve in Central Florida, where the young outdoorsman was said to have gone hiking before he vanished.

But neighbors are now revealing new details that could make Brian even more difficult to locate. 

A couple who live across the street from Brian Laundrie and his family told Fox News on Wednesday that they saw the 23-year-old and his parents leave their home in a truck with an attached camper about a week after Laundrie returned home alone from a cross-country road trip with his fiancée, Gabby Petito.

Authorities are still searching for Laundrie, who has been missing since last Tuesday and is a person of interest in Petito’s death, which has been ruled a homicide.

Charlene and William Guthrie, who moved to North Port, Florida, this summer, said they told authorities they’d seen Christopher and Roberta Laundrie attach what appeared to be a new camper to their truck and drive off for what the Guthries assumed was a weekend camping trip with their son.

“I saw them doing some work. And then when they prepared for their trip, I saw them loading the camper,” William Guthrie told Fox.

Laundrie is considered to be a skilled outdoorsman who may be able to remain “off the grid” for a considerable length of time, which has made the entire situation all the more worrisome for those seeking justice for Gabby Petito.
