Default New 3.8 Sales Tax for 2013

"We Have To Pass The Bill To See What's In It" by The Wicked Witch of the West, Representative Nancy Pelosi

I sent this before but will continue!! Homes have nothing to do with health care. I am not against revising health care but this goes to far.

If you own a home, please read this!

The National Association of REALTORS is all over this and working to get it repealed, before it takes effect. But, I am very pleased we aren't the only ones who know about this ploy to steal billions from unsuspecting homeowners. How many REALTORS do you think will vote Democratic in 2012?
Did you know that 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 goes into effect in 2013.
Why 2013? Could it be to come to light 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 and 2012 vote more important?
Oh, you weren't aware this was in the Obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either <>
I hope you forward this to every single person in your address book. VOTERS NEED TO KNOW.

Partly true and partly false.

We had that on the ballot here in La. for the Gov. race, but was a tricky question, it said if you didn't want it to vote yes (confusing) the pollsters were calling everone. The law was already inacted in New Orleans last year. As far as i know it was defeated statewide in the last election.
