President Obama, the? Taxman!

In a 5-4 ruling based on the power of Congress to impose taxes, the nation's highest court preserved the law's "individual mandate" requiring that most Americans obtain health insurance by 2014 or pay a tax.twenty - yes, twenty - hidden new taxes of this law.  Making matters even more relevant is that seven of these taxes are levied on all citizens regardless of income. Hence, Mr. Obama’s promise not to raise taxes on anyone earning less than $250,000 is just another falsehood associated with this legislation.

Let me tell you how it will be; There's one for you, nineteen for me. 'Cause I'm the Taxman, Yeah, I'm the taxman.
Should five per cent appear too small, Be thankful I don't take it all. 'Cause I'm the taxman, Yeah, I'm the taxman.
(if you drive a car, car;) - I'll tax the street; (if you try to sit, sit;) - I'll tax your seat; (if you get too cold, cold;) - I'll tax the heat; (if you take a walk, walk;) - I'll tax your feet.
'Cause I'm the taxman, Yeah, I'm the taxman.
Don't ask me what I want it for, (ah-ah, mister Wilson) If you don't want to pay some more. (ah-ah, mister heath) 'Cause I'm the taxman, Yeah, I'm the taxman.
Now my advice for those who die, (taxman) Declare the pennies on your eyes. (taxman) 'Cause I'm the taxman, Yeah, I'm the taxman.
And you're working for no one but me.
From The Beatles's album, Revolver
The lyrics referring to “one for you, nineteen for me” and “five percent” are not an exageration. At the time they wrote the song, the highest tax bracket in the UK, which the Beatles fell into, was really 95%! That’s why pretty much every British rock star of any prominence from the 60’s ended up relocating to the US or other countries.
