A previously unreleased analysis prepared by the U.S. Department of Treasury says the total in new taxes would be between $100 billion to $200 billion a year. At the upper end of the administration's estimate, the cost per American household would be an extra $1,761 a year.

(1:06) PO Media Montage (9/20/09) "The easiest way to get on television right now is to be really rude. If you're just being sensible and giving people the benefit of the doubt, and you're making your arguments, you don't get time on the nightly news," Obama said on ABC's "This Week."  "You might on Sunday morning," host George Stephanopoulos countered -- to which Obama said, "But if you say something outrageous, you're there in a hot second." Then, on CBS he said conflict is the media's catnip.

GS:  "Under this mandate, the government is forcing people to spend money, fining you if you don't. How is that not a tax?" the host asked. 
BO: "No, but -- but, George, you -- you can't just make up that language and decide that that's called a tax increase."
GS: "I don't think I'm making it up.  Merriam-Webster's dictionary:  'Tax, a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes."
BO: "No. That -- that's not true, George. The -- for us to say that you've got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase."
458-508 – • NRO Staff (9/21/09) Factchecking a Presidential Sunday.
On whether the health insurance mandate is a tax:  Asked whether a mandate on health insurance was a tax increase, President Obama said, "For us to say that you got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is not a tax increase." 
Fact:  President Obama might be interested to read the Chairman's mark of the Finance Committee bill, which says that, "The consequence for not maintaining insurance would be an excise tax."  The mark further says that, "The excise tax would be assessed through the tax code and applied as an additional amount of Federal tax owed."   CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation estimate that the government will collect $20 billion from taxing the uninsured.

612-623 • Fox News (9/20/09) Rapper in Virginia Quadruple Murder Charged With Killing Pastor.  Horrorcore is just "art"?
A friend said McCroskey, Emma and her friend were brought together by horrorcore music, which sets violent lyrics to hip-hop beats.
Andres Shrim, who owns the small, independent horrorcore music label Serial Killin Records in New Mexico and performs under the name SickTanicK, said he saw all three Sept. 12 at an all-day music festival in Southgate, Mich.
Shrim said despite the morbid music he and his friends loved, they were not violent people.
"You look at the music we do and it's kind of harsh and somewhat brutal at times, but there's a different side of life that people aren't normally accustomed to, and being an artist I think it's important to see both sides of life," he said.
McCroskey recorded songs that spoke of death, murder and mutilation under the name Syko Sam. His MySpace Web page said he has only been rapping for a few months but has been a fan for years of the horrorcore genre.
"You're not the first, just to let you know. I've killed many people and I kill them real slow. It's the best feeling, watching their last breath. Stabbing and stabbing till there's nothing left," McCroskey sings in "My Dark Side."
Shrim asked others not to judge McCroskey by the lyrics to his songs or his disturbing Web pages.
"This is not something from the Sam I know," he said. "This is not something that I would ever, ever in a million years envision him doing."
