I thought capping taxes was a good thing?

Or is this one of those "0bummer did it, so that makes it the worst thing ever!" type of things?

Bonus, the tax cap only saves you money if you're one of those sad Wall Street Journal people making > $250k

Are you new here?  Literally everything is an "0bummer did it, which makes it equal to a google Hitlers." type of thing.

They're very sensitive, they need a lot of coddling.

I would think that if you are a family of 5 you could afford health insurance if you are pulling in $1.2 million/year

If you have three children and you're making over $1.2 million a year, and you don't have health insurance, you should probably have those kids taken away from you.

When you're a hammer, everything looks like nail.

When you're a liberal, everything looks like vote buying entitlement program.

Obama has been very clear about his desire to redistribute the wealth. The fact that he sees his signature legislation as an expansion of the welfare state should surprise no one.

If you had read the article instead of your "Obamunist accusation a day" calendar you'd have noticed that this only benefits those making over a quarter million a year.  Yep that some rich hating right there.

wow.just.wow.:


not paying a penny, already changed my deductions so that I will owe at the end of the year, and when that time comes, I will refuse to pay the ACA penalty. This corrupt, imposter, parasite we are mistaking for a legitimate government administration...

The more you look at this, Obama is about racial justice for the PAST! He knows this will hurt white Americans and benefit black and Latino more.

I don't know why more people aren't trying this tactic. Without being certain, it looks like it would be legal. At least until they continue to tack on those penalties year after year and wait until you screw up once by giving yourself an enormous refund.

I wonder what the odds are that the person who posted that lives in a red state that takes more than it gives, and/or the person is on Medicare/SNAP/etc? 1:1?

Well if I was a gambling man, I'd say the odds of most of those being actual people are pretty small. Companies out there astroturfing and carpetbombing comment threads with bots to influence public opinion is becoming pretty standard these days.

You do realize that we have been experiencing wealth redistribution from the bottom to the top for at least 30 years now, right? Stop pretending that conservatives are NOT for wealth redistribution... they most certainly are, just in the direction that is most harmful to our economy.

not necessarily. if they are paying their bills and dont owe anything, no worries here.

I read this headline, and I remember it's Freeper Friday. And that real people would actually believe most of the negative things said, without question.

Regardless, capping the amount to pay isn't really a big deal. But wah let's whine more about healthcare instead of offering solutions.

I didn't even think about that. I just wanted to write a super trolly headline because I know the admins dig on those.

Obama helps out the 1% who can actually afford healthcare, ignores the 99% and dems/libs love him for it. Aren't your jaws tired from blowing him so much?

The fact that you cannot see the difference between correcting a factually inaccurate remark for it's ineptitude and throwing in support for a decision is pretty telling of your comprehension skills.

It's a corollary behavior to the "if you aren't with us, you're against us" mentality... if you aren't criticizing Obama, then you are schlobbing his knob. Just another manifestation of the juvenile binary mind set of your typical conservative.

We just hadn't gotten around to how bad this is, we all looked at the idiot in the room and started berating him.  Then the next idiot chimes in.  How are we supposed to actually address how we feel about the issue when there's a new idiot needing correcting or an old one doubling down.

Well if Congress will do nothing except biatch and then go on recess, he has no choice. Congressional Republicans through their obstructionism has removed themselves from the governing process.

$2,448...The amount is equal to the national average annual premium for a bronze level health plan.


Which is farking insane for an individual plan with a $5000 deductible.

Seriously, the whole School of Opposition political strategy is just getting depressing.

See, this is why I suspect that most "criticism" of Obama is racially-motivated. It's just that stupid, petty and easily debunked.

Yeah, but that's the national average. It's far cheaper in states that don't have assholes for governors.
