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.

downpaymentblues: Is it okay that I just thought Obamacare was a compromise solution that would allow people previously unable to get health care to now have coverage?

Or am I required to be partisan, and only care about who profits?

You have to take a partisan position or one will be assigned to you.

Sgt Stubby: No, doyner, I am NOT for government-run healthcare - i.e. single payor. The reason ObamaCare is so hated by the majority of Americans is because is just another massive, bureaucratic nightmare that only the hard-left could love. It was rammed down the country's throat solely by the democrat party and created the democrat election disaster in 2010. BTW, that's going to happen again.

The whole damned thing should have been struck down by the Supreme Court as 'void for vagueness', since so much of it will simply be made up as they go along in the future. The thing is larded with 'The Secretary shall determine' bs through and through, so nobody knows where the next attack will come from. And smug liberals in this thread are making a BIG assumption that the states will go along with the expanded Medicaid command from Obama. Already half say they will not.

What needs to happen is the government getting out of the way. The reason auto insurance is so competetive is because the government doesn't restrict purchasing of it like they do with health insurance. Also, on-the-job health insurance isn't taxed as income (though I bet liberals would love that), so the self-employed, unemployed ot those without covereage at work should be able to deduct their premiums.

Sorry, liberals. Americans want more freedom, not more government control via an expanded gestapo - i.e. the hard-left's beloved IRS. That's why you were crushed in 2010, and it's why you'll lose again in November. America HATES ObamaCare.

By the way, I'm getting called an idiot and so on in this thread, you I haven't called anyone names like that. I'm even being called a 'dentist'. Is that some kind of inside joke? But anyway, be as hateful as you like. It's really persuasive and it's why liberal news has such a huge audience!

Found a picture of Sgt. Stubby with his childish nicknames and false sense of entitlement:

Sgt Stubby: pippi longstocking: Yes, healthcare is a basic necessity/human right. I don't know what kind of Neanderthal thinks it is not.

That's a lie.

If I'm a doctor, a nurse or a dentist, you don't have the 'right' to command my labor anymore than I have the right to take your automobile because I don't have one. You don't have the right to other peoples' property or labor. Sorry, kiddo.


That means we can't have the right to an attorney.

Mrtraveler01: Dusk-You-n-Me: FEHRNSTROM: That's correct. But the president also needs to be held accountable for his contradictory statements.

Did the Romney campaign just divide by zero?

"It was a small penalty when I did it in Mass., but for Obama it's a massive tax hike, and yes I see some of you have your hands in the air, but before you ask me anymore questions I'd like to state for the record that Obama needs to be held accountable for his contradictory statements. Good night, and go f*ck yourself San Diego."

Cinaed: The party of personal responsibility doesn't like... personal responsibility?

They like it when it's proposed by Bill Bennett or some other Republican.

When it's proposed by BallSack FARTSSEIN Zerobammey it's basically the Holocaust, except worse.

It's interesting...

Back in the day, right after the government started functioning in 1789 after ratifying the Constitution, they were forced to pass a new tax to cover their expenses.

See, before 1789, the Federal government was barred by law from passing taxes. it was left up to THE STATES, who ignored the problem, naturally. They were up to their eyeballs in debt, so the Fed had to pass the Whiskey Tax.

Then, as now, people didn't like taxes, so they got their panties in a twist.

Then, as now, the protesters demanded a compromise and they got it. Just like today.

And just like now, the protesters weren't satisfied with the compromise.

Violence broke out as the protesters attacked government officials while disguised.

Protests continued and the protesters grew more and more radical, all the while, professing to be modeling their efforts after the American Revolution.

Of course, the protesters at that time stood no chance and escaped death only because the government gave them mercy.

In the end, the leaders of the protest fled and left their followers to fend for themselves. In the end, they were known as cowards and selfish fools who cared only about their pocketbooks.

They murdered men, even officers of the Federal government, and only two men were sentenced to death, and 'they' were pardoned by the President.

Moral of the story? A resistance to paying taxes, protesting stupidly about it, and then running like scared little girls at the first sign of aggression is ingrained upon the American public. It's part of our legacy.

Dusk-You-n-Me: If this means Obama raised taxes then so did Romney as Governor. So yeah. Next.



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.

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

Yeah but look at all the other taxes. You have to admit that this is the only one with "Obama" in its name.
