These are not the tax increases you are looking for

Liberally Biased Tax Chart

This is a truly despicable graph.  As you can see, this ranks several of the tax increases that have happened over the last 60 years or so, and measures them as a percentage of GDP.  According to these liberally biased facts, Obamacare is somewhere in the middle, whereas the Bush Tax Increases of 1980 and the Reagan Tax Increases of 1982 were both larger than the Obamacare Tax Increase.

Obviously this is impossible. These facts cannot be correct.

How do we know?

1) Obamacare is the biggest tax increase in the history of the known universe. I know this is true because Rush Limbaugh said it, and Rush Limbaugh has been documented to be almost always right 99.7% of the time. I don’t really know how this was measured, but he said it once on his program so I’m sure it’s true.

2) Reagan is a paragon of conservative virtue and would never raise taxes. Anyone who says that he did is deceptively not paying attention to the time he lowered taxes, which is what they should be doing instead. Obviously.


There is obviously only one possible explanation. You know who some random dude in a robe suddenly “decided” that the Obamacare costs are now taxes, even though Congress previously said they were not?

Well, if they can do it, so can we: Obviously, the “Reagan Tax Increases” were fees and not taxes.  In fact, it’s pretty clear to anyone who thinks about it for a moment that all of the so-called “taxes” on the above graph that are bigger than the Obamacare increase are actually fees and not taxes.

This allows us to conclude that Reagan never raised taxes, and Obamacare is the biggest tax increase ever.

If anyone tells you anything else…. well, that’s just liberal bias!!!
