I need a response to an email about taxes and "Obamacare"
A friend forwarded to me an email about the 2011 W2 tax form and the inclusion in your tax bill of the total amount your employer pays into your health care. The email says that this will increase your tax bracket everyone should be aware and vote accordingly.

Can someone provide the facts about this and explain who it will affect. I don't trust these kinds of emails and I want to explain to my friend what's real and what isn't.

Thanks

2. It is another scare tactic lie to get the think-nots who only get their opinion from the right wing

leaders who can get them to vote against their own best interests. Imagine if all voters were not so stupid and gullible!

They health care plan can not be rescinded and there is no tax on employer sponsored health insurance that the employee has to pay.

5. The correct answer 99% of the time is . . .
"Prove it. Don't forward some nonsense e-mail, give me a citation to the U.S. Code that enshrines whatever bullshit point you're trying to make into the law of the land." Your correspondent will vanish faster than a fart in a frying pan.
