Let’s Tax Everything: The Flu Tax


flu-shots-2009

Aren’t you just sick and tired of all those lazy rich people who get flu shots instead of sneezing and wheezing their way through the flu like they should?

Why is the 1 percent living it up with their solid gold hypodermic needles and silk bandages, escaping the flu in their flu shelters without paying their fair share to subsidize the post office, green energy billionaires and single mothers with eight kids from different fathers?

While university students with degrees in Japanese LGBT Transwoman’s Literature have to work the register at Trader Joe’s, sneezing into their sustainable work aprons made out of recycled toilet paper, the fatcats are living flu free and laughing about it.

Is this just, I ask you. Is this fair? It is not, that is why the imaginary 99 percent is fighting back with a flu tax. It’s time to make the flu, and the people who refuse to have it, pay for their crimes against mother nature’s bacteria colonies. Finally kindergarten teachers, flight attendants and other 1 percent villains will have to pay for wanting to be flu-free in defiance of Gaia and Al Gore.

In February, identical bills were introduced in the House and Senate to add seasonal flu vaccines to the IRS code as taxable. The legislation would exact a 75¢ per dose tax on any “vaccine against seasonal influenza.” Given that the Centers for Disease Control projects that 135 million doses of flu vaccine will be used this year, the government’s take on flu vaccines alone is over $100,000,000 per year.

Along with taxes on other vaccines, this tax would fund the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund.  The fund is a “no-fault alternative to the traditional tort system for resolving vaccine injury claims that provides compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines.”  However, the fund is by no means in the same kind of trouble that other government “trust funds” are.

The balance in the fund (as of November 2012) was more than $3.5 billion. Since the program’s inception in 1988, the fund has paid out only $2.5 billion in 25 years for cases involving all vaccines, not just the flu vaccine. This means the balance in the fund could conceivably last another 25 years with no further tax revenue.

That sounds fine, except the money doesn’t actually exist.

As is the case with all government “trust funds,” there is no cash set aside to pay out claims. According to the November 2012 report on the vaccine trust, the $3.5 billion balance is invested in “US Treasury Securities.” In other words, financing a portion of the $16.5 trillion national debt.

Translation, the money has been stolen. The money from the flu tax will also be stolen. We are being ruled by a government of thieves reduced to taxing flu shots to pay for a piece of their latest scam.

    Cough, cough…in the above pic, Obama should be taking his shot in his butt, instead of his arm.
    Butt, Mooch would be angry and Obama would be ducking when he got home!

    It's been said before but if we could fairly tax stupidity our budget would be in surplus every year.

    Taxing for the privilege of breathing will come next, I kid you not. But what is Obama Inc to do since they have run the economy into the ground, but there is still more "work" to be done? So, insane taxes will help ease their burden, until all chaos breaks loose. By the way, the CDC used to be about combating diseases – no more – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/03/05/cdc-centers-f

    And this is no conspiracy theory!!

    Well technically, Mother Nature's viral colonies, since the Flu is caused by a virus, not a bacterium.

  • Edward Cline

    I'm supposing that Congressmen, Presidents, connected lobbyists, and federal employess of all suasions will be exempt from having to pay the tax. As they are from Obamacare.

  • Looking4Sanity

    What is the SOP when societies crumble? The people get lied to, the government robs the treasury and then skips town with your money to a predetermined "safe" (read: non-extradition) location.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

      Morning.

      The above pic is Obama getting a syphilis shot! LOL.

      "Along with taxes on other vaccines, this tax would fund the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund. The fund is a “no-fault alternative to the traditional tort system for resolving vaccine injury claims that provides compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines.”

      That's the reason me and mine NEVER get a flu shot! And I stopped vaccinating my kiddos when my oldest was 18 months old and my youngest two have never been vaccinated. They are SO healthy and very rarely get sick.

      I've a feeling these shots are going to be mandatory when the single payer comes into play. I'll be saying NO thanks!

        Good morning to you.You're not going to believe this. Some idiot calling himself a patriot is taking advice from Mac_Hiney on who is a conservative! That is one serious case of bad judgment if you ask me. That web site was better off dead. I can't imagine it will stay on life support long.

        • YourConscience

          Mac_Hines?

          When it comes down to real conservative values, you are not fit to wipe Mac_Hiney's Hiney.

          People like you and 4Constipation are the reason numerous multiple boards have folded and cease to exist. You are not conservative. You are a Fundamentalist Fraud.

          • onepornqueen

            That's an unconscionable statement.

          • YourConscience

            You are right about at the top of the heap when it comes to the feces category.

          • onepornqueen

            Flattery still won't get me to strip off for you.

          • 4_Constitution

            Yourconsience is Zebrano/Bernie/Alsencien who has been smoking too much pot with his h.omo Ronulan friends. That's why he doesn't make sense.

            In fact, when it comes to a conscience, I think God would call his seared. Reprobate also comes to mind. :o)

          • onepornqueen

            Zat who dat is? Figgers. I knew it was on of the reguloons.

          • Looking4Sanity

            Says the little worm hiding behind a throw away account. Your opinion means less than nothing to me.

          • Looking4Sanity

            For the record, it's the ProgLib Commies who habitually hide from their records. We'll just let the public judge whether or not I'm a fraud. I'll proudly stand by my record, and a sniveling, sniping, little weasel such as yourself is not going to hold my interest at all.

      I'm sure that's why Obama is having the CIA comb through our bank accounts. They already have victims lined up. It's going to look like Greece where we wake up one day and all the banks are closed and it's announced that everyone will be paying their fair share even liberals. I'm gonna LMAO when that happens! It's gonna be a "see I told you so" moment of epic proportions just like Rush's book with the same title!

      • Looking4Sanity

        It says something about humanity when the most powerful nation to ever emerge on the Earth in all of recorded history can't even last 250 years. Now I know how Moses felt when he came down from the mountain, from the presence of God Himself, and found his peeps fornicating with goats and worshiping cow idols.

        • 4_Constitution

          In my One Year Bible I've been reading in Judges about how Israel turned their backs on God and served Ba'al so many times and how God had to stir up their enemies to get them to repent and call on Him.

          I've gotta feeling we are about to experience the same thing only this time, we're bringing the WHOLE world down with us.

          The Great Falling Away is happening at breath-taking speed as the world is plunging deeper into sin and more countries are legalizing sodomy therefore criminalizing Christianity.

          • Looking4Sanity

            Indeed. We're past the point of any meaningful election. Voting is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. The masses have spoken and it's an express ticket to hell they're all screaming for. Hard to argue with a stampede. Better to step out of the way and try not to get any on you!

    Flu shots are like global warming….a theoretical construct. I have NEVER had a flu shot and will never have one….flu shots interfere with your own resistance and immunity systems. They are dangerous for some people. Hundreds died from the SWINE FLU shots back in the 70s. There are literally thousands of flu varieties and the flu shot does not insure immunity . The flu shots contain various toxins and are not necessary for one's health. The most important things you can do to increase your immunity to disease: Quit smoking and drinking….quit eating garbage junk food, Get outside, exercise, eat an excellent diet, be healthy…if you get sick, you will recover….with increased immunity. These are my opinions, not doctor talk.

    President Erkel can wear all the Black power racist shirts he wants. Nothing can hide those pasty white girly arms.

    FYI the flu is not a bacteria it's a virus.
