I have to assume that with the median income being about $50k, that has to be 90% or so of the population. Sounds like a decent deal.

Oh and as always the comments at sites like the one linked to are the best part. I want to believe that there are at least one or two trolls who commented, but sadly, I realize that people actually think that way.

You can bet the White House wishes it would just quietly go away. O is falling all over himself trying to explain how this is not a tax that will be paid mostly by middle class Americans.

If this means Obama raised taxes then so did Romney as Governor. So yeah. Next.

No. The uninsured should get their health care in emergency rooms, paid for with increased premiums to those with insurance.

That's the way the Founders intended.

So no, the Affordable Care Act isn't the "biggest tax hike in history." It's not even the biggest tax hike in the past 60 years. Or 50 years. Or 30 years. Or 20 years. Link

HA! Have you heard Romney's crew trying to rip Obama on establishing a tax, but insisting that what Romney did in Mass. is not a tax?

Now that's hilarious

If anyone wants this to just go away, it's Romney and his lackeys. They simply cannot attack this without attacking Mitt. It's fun to watch 'em try, though.

GET OUT IN FRONT OF IT

--

TODD: The governor does not believe the mandate is a tax? That is what you're saying?

[Romney adviser] FEHRNSTROM: The governor believes that what we put in place in Massachusetts was a penalty and he disagrees with the Court's ruling that the mandate is not a tax.

TODD: But he agrees with the president that it is not - and he believes that you should not call the tax penalty a tax, you should call it a penalty or a fee or a fine?

FEHRNSTROM: That's correct. But the president also needs to be held accountable for his contradictory statements.

Federalist Papers #16 were actually about waiting for your heart condition to become a heart attack instead of getting cholesterol medication earlier.

Soak the rich? I think I speak for most progressives when I say we supported the law for the death panels, not the taxes. Not that taxes aren't great, but it's not the most important element in implementing stalinist purges on peace loving patriots.

From Federalist XVI:

"Whensoever the market determines that one's contribution to society is expressed through his ability to produce, it is but only reflecting the manifest nature of humanity as endowed by our creator. That such judgment shall take form in the relative disadvantage of one's already-experienced malady is the clearest of indicators of the divine wisdom of the marketplace; its purity self-evident, and superseding all law to be writ by man."

2012-07-02 09:59:56 AM  
Yeah, no one has ever thought that. The opposition is (largely) based around it being a handout to big insurance, for fark's sake.

If the President were to be held accountable for his contradictory statements, he'd face maybe a fine or a community service.

If Romney were to be held accountable for his contradictory statements, he'd face the death penalty.

The same way you can be pro-choice (abortion) and pro-health care, I suppose.
 
2012-07-02 10:02:33 AM  
Maybe some people don't pass legislation or elect certain officials for the primary function of "sticking it to" somebody I don't politically agree with. But, what do I know? I'm a typical Midwest coast, state college educated, Monday-through-Friday job liberal elitist.
 
2012-07-02 10:03:12 AM  
Why are conservative suddenly worried that poor and middle class folks will be paying higher taxes? Isn't their philosophy that everyone should have the same "skin in the game," so - if anything - raising taxes on the poor and middle class is more fair?

I think I know why - because anything is bad if they can blame it on Obama.

The party of "personal responsibility" seems to have no sense of responsibility whatsoever. How else can you explain starting 2 wars while cutting taxes, and now taking the position that they want to keep all of the benefits of Obamacare, while getting rid of the unpopular individual mandate.


The right is seriously a bunch of spoiled children. You'd think they never had to do anything like a responsible adult in their entire life.
