Obama set a Time Bomb to go off at the end of the year

There really is an economic Time Bomb out there and the clock is rapidly winding down on the economy of the United States. It was laid there by former President Barack Obama and his Democrat minions. It is a tax that is hidden in Obamacare. It was timed to go off after Obama left office. Now President Trump and the GOP led Congress must deal with it. here is with it. Here are the ugly facts.
