Since you're opposed to handouts, why don't you do us all a favor and ask your Republican Congressmen to stop obstructing Obama from cutting corporate welfare? Let's end the $4 billion per year gift to oil and gas companies (the richest most profitable businesses in the history of the earth).

By the way, that list of Obamacare "taxes" is very interesting. I was curious about #3 so I Googled it. It turns out that your deficit-loving Republican President George W. Bush passed a bogus energy tax credit in 2005 for paper manufacturers. It was actually corporate welfare for private companies who presumably made political donations or gave favors to Republicans.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that Bushie was trying to cover-up his version of capitalism…crony making it look like he was rewarding these companies for using environmentally friendly/recycled fuels. Read about it yourself:

“…paper companies are now being richly rewarded for the long-standing practice of using a byproduct of the wood pulping process as a fuel to run their mills. The paper companies...have not needed to alter or improve their existing business practices to qualify for the tax breaks, analysts said. Burning the fuel known as "black liquor" dates to the 1930s, and paper companies have consumed nearly all of the byproduct since the 1990s. A J.P. Morgan analyst report said the companies were "burning black liquor into gold." “

"While some have criticized the paper industry's eligibility for the alternative fuel mix tax credit on the grounds that it is increasing fossil fuel use...."

In other words, Bush gifted these welfare queens several BILLION dollars (out of our tax revenues) for doing absolutely NOTHING!

Wikipedia says, "The bio-fuel credit for Black Liquor ended on Jan 1, 2010." They should add "...thanks to Barack Obama."

Those who are attempting to repeal Obamacare are simply not serving this country. They are serving someone, but not the American public.
