When will the assault end? Obama has not only set the stage for socialized medicine, but he's going to force additional taxes on the same group whose taxes he will allow to increase to 39% in 2011. Does he really think that the well off and small business owners are going to sit and take beating after beating to live in a country with less effective, government-run health care? A country which offers no future for their children, in which government runs the lives of it's citizens from cradle to grave, and punishes the productive?

A senior administration official says Obama's budget calls for financing the overhaul by trimming Medicare spending and limiting tax deductions for upper-income earners. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the budget won't be released until Thursday.
About 48 million Americans are uninsured, according to recent estimates. The cost of guaranteeing coverage for all could easily exceed $1 trillion over 10 years.
Obama has asked Congress for health reform this year, but senior members of both political parties say they are concerned about the cost."
