Take a peek at the link I just posted or that one that was posted just before your post. You don't know how many new taxes Obamacare has in it, do you? Try 18.

You can avoid one of them by having health insurance. How about the other 17 new taxes provided for in the law? Do we have to have 18 insurance programs to avoid all of them?

You have got your foot in your mouth just like Joe Biden does so often and Obama has been doing so much lately

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!
Let me suggest that you look at this link, yes I know you people don't like to look at links but I want you to stop making yourself look as bad as you are doing. Pay attention to when the various taxes go into effect. 7 of them are in effect right now.

How many new taxes will be in effect in 2014 from Obamacare? I surely hope you know but you don't sound like you do.

I seriously doubt all 40+ hospitals care solely, or even predominantly, for the indigent.

He has raised no taxes on the middle class thus far, in fact, has lowered them. It's also entirely possible that the ones affected by the individual mandate that kicks in during 2014 have a net tax decrease, even with the ACA premiums, so no, I won't play your little game.
How long before you read something about the law other than leaner crap. Here is another attempt to help you learn something about taxation and Obamacare.

Why don't you tell me, since you seem to think you know the answer.
