'Tax' Used 124 Times in Senate Healthcare Bill

Grover Norquist By Friday, 23 October 2009 08:33 AM Current | Bio | Archive

A word search of the 1,502-page Senate healthcare bill (S. 1796) reveals that the term “tax” is used 124 times; “taxable” is used 158 times; and “excise tax” is used 12 times.

Other terms of interest are as follows:

Senate Health Care Bill (S. 1796)

Term Number of uses

“Tax” 124 times
“Taxes” 16 times
“Excise tax” 12 times
“Taxpayer(s)” 79 times
“Taxable” 158 times
“Tax-exempt” 15 times
“Penalty” 79 times
“Require” 88 times
“Must” 40 times
“Shall” 2,585 times

The “excise tax” mentioned on page 194 is just one of several taxes in the bill that violate President Obama’s tax pledge. During his campaign, Obama made a “firm pledge” not to raise “any form” of taxes on families making less than $250,000 per year.
