    a sneaky new tax

    Subject: HR 4646 -- A sneaking new tax

    THIS BUNCH OF THIEVES HAS GOT TO BE STOPPED! REMEMBER ON NOVEMBER 5TH 2012

    Even if you are not a senior you should pay attention to this. Obama gets in again and there will be more
    of this.

    ON JANUARY 1, 2013, THE US GOVERNMENT WILL BE REQUIRING EVERYONE TO HAVE DIRECT DEPOSIT FOR SS CHECKS.

    WONDER WHY?

    Subject: HR 4646

    Be sure to read entire explanation

    Watch for this AFTER November elections; remember this BEFORE you VOTE, in case you think Obama is looking out for your best interest.

    A 1% tax on all bank transactions is what
    HR 4646 calls for.

    Do you receive a paycheck, or a retirement check from Social Security or a pension fund and have
    it direct deposit??

    Well guess what ... It looks as if Obama wants
    to tax it 1% !!!

    This bill was put forth by Rep. Chaka Fattah
    (D-PA).

    YES, that is 1% tax on all bank transactions -
    HR 4646, every time it goes in and every time money goes out.

    Ask your congressperson to vote NO.

    FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

    1% tax on all bank transactions ~ HR 4646 -

    ANOTHER NEW OBAMA TAX SLIPPED IN WHILE WE WERE ASLEEP.

    Checked this on snopes, it's true!
    Check it out yourself ~ HR 4646.

    President Obama's finance team is recommending a one percent (1%) transaction fee (TAX). Obama's plan is to sneak it in after the November elections to keep it under the radar.

    This is a 1% tax on all transactions at any financial institution - banks, credit unions, savings and loans, etc. Any deposit you make, or even a transfer within your own bank from one account to another, will have a 1% tax charged.

    If your paycheck or your Social Security or whatever is direct deposit, it will get a 1% tax charged for the transaction.

    If your paycheck is $1000, then you will pay Obama $10 just for the privilege of depositing your paycheck in your bank. Even if you hand carry your paycheck or any check in to your
    bank for a deposit, 1% tax will be charged.

    You receive a $5,000 stock dividend from your broker, Obama takes $50 just to allow you to deposit that check in the bank.

    If you take $1,000 cash to deposit at your bank, 1% tax will be charged.

    Mind you, this is from the man who promised
    that, if you make under $250,000 per year,
    you will not see one penny of new tax.

    Keep your eyes and ears open, you will be amazed at what you learn about this guy's
    under-the-table moves to increase the number
    of ways you are taxed.

    Oh, and by the way, if you receive a refund from the IRS next year and you have it direct deposited or you walk in to deposit that check, you guessed it. You will pay a 1% charge of that money just
    for putting it in your bank.

    Remember, any money, cash, check or whatever, no matter where it came from, you will pay a 1% fee if you put it in the bank.

    Some will say, oh well, it's just 1%. Are you kidding me?

    It's a 1% tax increase across the board. Remember, once the tax is there, they can also raise it at will. And if anyone protests, they will
    just say, "Oh, that's not really a tax, it's a user fee"!

    Think this is no big deal? Go back and look at
    the transactions you made from last year's banking statements. Then add the total of all those transactions and deduct 1%.
    Still think it's no big deal?

    The following is copied from Snopes:

    If this happens, there will be bank panics across the country in December of this year, and I assume ACH transfers will undergo the same problem.

    for some reason, every time he posts one of these, the resulting panic surprises me again. I need to accept that some people are just stupid.
    Huskies are very intelligent and trainable. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Grooming is minimal; bathing is normally unnecessary.

    Are you saying mookie's stupid or that the people responding are stooped?

    You understand that nobody around here is foolish enough to play a clip you post around here anymore, right, Twitch? At least I know that I don't like to bleed from my ears these days.
