Look Carol,<quoted text>
So are you saying you, too, like RealDave, believe Obama and the health care monstrosity won't cost the taxpayers one thin dime?
Because that's the journey to which I was referring. Of course, RealDave believes it's already paid for.
Please tell me you've gone further than that.
The ACA is paid for through a series of taxes & savings.
Some tax payers will pay some of these taxes & some will not be affected. For example, a tax was added to investment income over a certain threshold.
The point I am making is that this bill does not add to the debt.
Part D was passed by Republicans with about 80% of it adding to the deficit.
Tax payers pay for everything the government does. So running in circles screaming how the ACA is costing taxpayers money is extremely stupid. The added costs due to the ACA are funded.
