Oh really?

I guess you wanted it passed before you knew what was in it.

Please read the link and inform yourself before making such statements, as you are blatantly, absolutely WRONG! (no libs read these links as facts are of no concern to them, in true Stalinistic fashion. Facts are irrelevant, comrade!)

It's a voluntary tax on everyone (middle class or higher) that can be easily avoided by getting health insurance.

Go on, keep up your attempts at a "gotcha." We're not biting.

So it's a tax increase on the middle class?

Taxes have not yet been raised on the middle class. How many in the middle class have paid higher taxes as a result of the Affordable Care Act in 2012? Zero.

Second, could anyone have forseen the ruling that the individual mandate would be classified as a "tax"? It's an asinine and petty attack, but it's all you right wingers have, I guess. I'd be panicking too if I backed a loser like Romney. Four years and THIS is your best candidate? LMAO!

A significant portion of my property taxes goes to supporting indigent care at the county hospital. When everyone has insurance, the ER will no longer be the primary care doctor to thousands who cannot pay. Good chance my savings in property taxes will offset any additional tax imposed by the Affordable Healthcare Act.
