Krauthammer Explains the 20 New ObamaCare Taxes: ‘How Do You Think Sandra Fluke Gets Her Free Contraceptives?’ (Video)

Charles Krauthammer was on the O’Reilly Factor Thursday night to talk about all the new Obama taxes that are getting ready to drop, next year.

Juan Williams, filling in for Bill O’Reilly, began the segment by asking the question, “can Americans withstand the crushing new costs of ObamaCare in the new year?”

“In all, you’ve got  20 new taxes in ObamaCare- nine that are taking effect this year or next. What are all of these new hidden taxes and fees coming for? What are they going to do for anybody?” Williams asked.

Krauthammer quipped, “well how do you think Sandra Fluke gets her free contraceptives? Remember all the free stuff people are getting? The free mammograms, the free preventative care, the free everything? Nothing is free in this world. What ObamaCare managed to do very cleverly when it was selling itself, was to hide all these taxes. They’re a trillion dollars a year.”

Krauthammer said the “hidden tax” is the fact that millions of people have been dropped from their insurance in the individual market, and later, millions more off the employer market to force them to pay higher premiums for coverage they don’t need — in order to subsidize other people. “The costs people are paying out, is huge,” he said.

“The middle and upper middle class …are being asked to subsidize anybody up to 3 times over the poverty line, Krauthammer continued.. “This is a huge transfer of wealth that was always in the bill, it was never anything that couldn’t have been seen, but the media and most analysts and of course, Democrats were uninterested in looking at it at all.”

“This is a huge tax on the middle class, but Obama posed as a defender of the middle class against the very rich,” he noted.

Krauthammer has been warning for the past week, that Obama plans to bail out the insurance companies to prevent an ObamaCare “death spiral.”

“That’s why the administration is somewhat serene,” he explained. And that’s why Republicans have to get up right now and pass a bill that says, “no bailout” – at least in the House.”

Christmas Day Attacks in Both Iraq and Afghanistan (Video)

In Iraq, the attacks were targeted against Christians.

Fox News reported:

At least 37 were killed in Iraq after militants targeted Christians in two separate bomb attacks on Wednesday, according to officials.

In one attack, a car bomb went off near a church during Christmas Mass in the capital’s southern Dora neighborhood, killing at least 26 people and wounding 38, a police officer said.

A little bit earlier, a bomb ripped through an outdoor market in the nearby Christian section of Athorien, killing 11 people and wounding 21, the officer added.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks, but Iraq’s dwindling Christian community, which is estimated to number about 400,000 to 600,000 people, has often been targeted by al-Qaida and other insurgents who see the Christians as unbelievers.

In Kabul, the Taliban attacked the US Embassy:

The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan says its compound was hit by indirect fire just before dawn on Christmas Day. It says no Americans were injured.

An embassy official, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with regulations, says the attack happened at around 6:40 a.m. Wednesday, when “two rounds of indirect fire impacted the U.S. Embassy compound.” Indirect fire can refer to either mortars or rockets.

The Taliban claimed they fired four rockets at the embassy on Wednesday and inflicted heavy casualties. But the insurgents often exaggerate their claims.

Meanwhile, a roadside bombing in eastern Kabul wounded three Afghan policemen Wednesday.


Walid Showbat: Muslims Kill Christians, Bottle Their Blood, And Sell It For $100,000 A Piece To Saudis:

A nun in Germany has recently done a presentation in a conference of an independent investigation she conducted of the treatment of Christians in Syria under the hands of Muslim fundamentalists. She revealed that Muslims are butchering Christians, draining their blood in bottles, and selling each bottle for $100,000 to Muslims in Saudi Arabia who take it to wash their hands in Christian blood, with the belief that it atones for their sins.
