“Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.” Daniel 11:20

On January 1, regardless of the outcome of fiscal cliff negotiations, Americans will be hit with a $1 trillion Obamacare tax hike.

Obamacare contains twenty new or higher taxes. Five of the taxes hit for the first time on January 1.  In total, for the years 2013-2022, Americans face a net $1 trillion tax hike for the years 2013-2022, according to the Congressional Budget Office.


On January 1, regardless of the outcome of fiscal cliff negotiations, Americans will be hit with a $1 trillion Obamacare tax hike.

The five major Obamacare taxes taking effect on January are as follows:

The Obamacare Medical Device Tax:  Medical device manufacturers employ 409,000 people in 12,000 plants across the country. Obamacare imposes a new 2.3 percent excise tax on gross sales – even if the company does not earn a profit in a given year.  In addition to killing small business jobs and impacting research and development budgets, this will increase the cost of your health care – making everything from pacemakers to artificial hips more expensive.

The Obamacare Flex Account Tax: The 30-35 million Americans who use a pre-tax Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work to pay for their family’s basic medical needs will face a new government cap of $2500. This will squeeze $13 billion of tax money from Americans over the ten years. (Currently, the accounts are unlimited under federal law, though employers are allowed to set a cap.)

There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children.  There are several million families with special needs children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education. Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education. This Obamacare tax provision will limit the options available to these families.

The Obamacare Surtax on Investment Income: This is a new, 3.8 percentage point surtax on investment income earned in households making at least $250,000 ($200,000 single).  This would result in the following top tax rates on investment income:

Capital GainsDividendsOther*
2013+ (current law)23.8%43.4%43.4%

The table above also incorporates the scheduled hike in the capital gains rate from 15 to 20 percent, and the scheduled hike in dividends rate from 15 to 39.6 percent.

The Obamacare “Haircut” for Medical Itemized Deductions: Currently, those Americans facing high medical expenses are allowed a deduction to the extent that those expenses exceed 7.5 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI).  This tax increase imposes a threshold of 10 percent of AGI. By limiting this deduction, Obamacare widens the net of taxable income for the sickest Americans.  This tax provision will most harm near retirees and those with modest incomes but high medical bills.

The Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Hike:  The Medicare payroll tax is currently 2.9 percent on all wages and self-employment profits.  Under this tax hike, wages and profits exceeding $200,000 ($250,000 in the case of married couples) will face a 3.8 percent rate instead. This is a direct marginal income tax hike on small business owners, who are liable for self-employment tax in most cases. The table below compares current law vs. the Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Hike:

First $200,000
($250,000 Married)
All Remaining Wages

In a few days he shall be destroyed, not in anger nor in battle.

Will obama disappear?

It means that you are an idiot for believing such things.

Yet another Bible verse taken out of context by whomever runs this site…

Are you doubting that Obama is an antichrist? Doesn’t have to be thee antichrist but he’s an antichrist nonetheless.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matt. 24:24

My post was regarding the use of Daniel 11:20. This verse was taken out of context and it has nothing to do with U.S. and/or Obama raising taxes.

Thus says The Lord: Did you think My wrath would tarry forever?! Did you think My judgment sleeps?! Are My eyes closed to all these atrocities committed upon the earth, day and night, without ceasing?! Are My ears also stopped from hearing?!… Lo, I have seen and I have heard!

My face draws near to this earth!…

My eyes are filled with fire and fury!…

My forehead wrinkles, and is set hard against you,
O inhabitants of the earth!…

For it is time!

It is time to shake the cities of men by measure, and to bring up wrath from beneath! City by city shall be punished… One here and another there. Behold, it shall come upon them suddenly, and men shall fear, and with great perplexity shall their hearts fail!… A great trembling shall now come upon all people!…


It shall come in swiftly, and you shall not know from where it shall come!
It shall come upon city after city, without warning!

For I have caused the earth to become angry. Lo, the depths of the earth tremble at My nearness, and soon this planet shall rage!… It shall rage against you, O deceitful generation! It… Read more »

Thank you for posting. I am re-blogging this. I can’t believe the amount of people that are refusing to acknowledge this evil man and his administration. I agree with all the comments thus far. I also think it may be time to heed the warnings of Isaiah 26:20 Go my people, enter your rooms for a little while until his wrath has passed by.

America will fall like the Roman Empire

How long must God warn this wicked generation? The time has come for His wrath! Be ready to pay for your sins. This was our choice and we chose to defy God’s Words and laws which were for our own good! See how good these choices look now! Don’t say we were not warned! But God is not mocked and He has been very, very patient! Be ready people, REPENT, for the time is short!

I don’t think Mr Obama is the Antichrist, but his liberal ways and immoral policies will usher in the man of lawlessness. So, it won’t be a huge transition for people to be totally willing to follow this silver tongued devil. In a way, Mr Obama is “an” antichrist, but one more sly and evil will follow him.

I agree Jason.

December 30, 2012 3:19 am

This is what I think also, Jason. He is the precursor of the man of perdition whom Scripture says is so charismatic that the whole world will follow after him.
