Example #4,564,583,845,093,468,034,985.029345094358 that the Heath Care Bill was NEVER ABOUT YOU / HEALTH CARE. It is about expansion of government power and control over the population. It is a Trojan Horse. The end. Be sure to read the reader comments in the article above. As usual, the readers continue with the likely implications of the law outside gold sales where the MSM stops short. Example:
I don’t know why this ABC story zeros in on coin dealers … this is going to affect many other types of businesses. The law they slipped in changes the 1099 law to include GOODS as well as services sold to businesses and independent contractors. Prior to this change if you paid an independent contractor over $600 in one year FOR SERVICES you would be required to issue a 1099 to the contractor and file it with the IRS. By the way, this rule applies to EVERYONE, even individuals, so if you paid the guy who mows your lawn over $600 in a year YOU have to issue a 1099 and file it with the government. With the change in the law GOODS as well as services are subject to this rule. In addition, payments to corporations used to be exempt. Not anymore. So if Joe’s Plumbing spends more than $600 in one year to Office Depot, Joe’s plumbing must sent Office Depot a 1099! Businesses, even small ones, make hundreds of transactions each year and because of the change in the law a vast majority of those transactions have to be reported to the government. The expense and overhead of doing this is going to be tremendous. Remember, these laws come from the people WE (the people) elect. Yes, your vote does have consequences!
This, my friends, is just another example, another necessary step in what Barry would call (in private, of course!) flooding the system.
