I expect that every bad liberal/progressive idea that was even considered during the last 20 years will be proposed as law – passed easily in the House – squeak through the Senate – and be signed into law by Obama.
The right to keep and bear arms will be further restricted and diminished. Expect bills to require registration and taxation of all firearms. Expect heavy taxes on ammunition.
There will be taxpayer funded health care for all children in homes making as much as $150,000. The definition of Child will extend to age 26 in all cases and the coverage “for children” will include all pregnant women, all parents of children eligible for the expanded program. It will pay for abortions for all covered “children”.
There will be tax increases on all businesses that do not offer free health care coverage for their employees. Medicare will be extended to people who are not age eligible for social security.
There will be higher taxes on social security income and higher taxes on working people for social security. There will likely be a cutoff of social security to those with “means”.
Taxes in general will be increased, especially on things the “progressives” or “Greens” dislike. Cars that get less than 35 mpg will likely see a large annual federal tax (expect the states to follow through as well). There will be an increase in the federal (and state) gasoline taxes with much of the revenue diverted to non highway related uses.
There will be income redistribution – starting with “tax refunds” to those who paid no taxes. This “bailout” will be available to citizens and illegals alike. The “refunds” and “middle class tax cuts” will not extend to those who actually pay the bulk of the taxes. On anyone described as “upper”income will see their taxes increase – dramatically. I expect that anyone with a gross income of over $100,000 will see these increases.
Bankruptcy laws will once again be liberalized to allow people to file more often, keep more assets and pay back less to creditors.
Smokers will see yet another hefty increase in the taxes on them.
There will be other “sin” tax increases. There will be an increase in the tax on liquor (perhaps not on beer – since it is seen as a “working class” thing, where as liquor is “upper class”).
There will be efforts to legalize marijuana. What there is of the “war on drugs” will be greatly diminished. Drug smuggling will once again be rampant. Our border will be more porous than ever before – to people and contraband.
Our efforts to combat terrorism will be badly mangled. There will be efforts to use the military for social engineering, it will be directed less at Islamofacist areas and instead employed like Clinton did to end “social injustice” and poverty. We will see more incidents like Mogadisu, there will be an expansion of terrorism, al Qaida will once again flourish.
In short, every thing that G. Gordon Liddy lamented in his book “When I Was a Kid, This Was a Free Country” will become even worse!
