The Fiscal Cliff's Hidden $1 Trillion Tax Hike


Posted by John Kartch, Ryan Ellis on Thursday, December 6th, 2012, 1:36 PM PERMALINK


According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), Obamacare’s twenty new or higher taxes amount to a net $1 trillion over the next decade, 2013-2022.

These tax increases are already permanent law due to Obamacare.  They include the medical device tax, the surtax on investment income, the individual and employer mandate non-compliance penalty tax, the medical itemized deduction “haircut,” the hike in the Medicare payroll tax rate, and others. These tax increases total exactly $1 trillion over the next ten years:
