The Joint Committee on Taxation recently released a 96 page report on the tax provisions associated with Affordable Care Act. The report describes the 21 tax increases included in Obamacare, totaling $1.058 trillion a steep increase from initial assessment, according to the Tax Prof Blog.

It's been years since this thing passed and the only thing I've got is higher health insurance and less coverage.
From what I understand this thing isn't even ready to go yet and now you all are saying its going to cost more?
That's because it is all a sham, just like the Obama presidency.
This thing will end up costing mega trillions and lower our quality of healthcare substantially, its an ugly expensive law.
I agree with a previous Topix poster here that this could have been done right but the only concern was getting something done.

I know health insurance has skyrocketed.
I think this whole ObamaCare thing is just a way to lower our health care standards and fleece more money from American taxpayers.
I haven't seen much positive about ObamaCare, all politics aside.

Obama should be the least of your worries, son. By your spelling and sentence structure, I'd say it's your former teachers, your parent (notice parent is singular!) and your own ignorant self that you should be angry with!

Obama is not all that, but he sure the hell is not Bush or Cheney! You'd better be more concerned about a Mexican who doesn't know any English taking your job, if you have one, than any increase in healthcare premiums. That's the least of your worries!!

Notice how liberals always , without fail, call those that disagree stupid and make fun of their values and culture.
Obama is most certainly a terrible president, I would say the worst.

Get used to it woman the man has almost 4 more years to go. I toast to myself regularly and am proud that my country finally booted damn republicans out. Now I not saying democrats are ones to glory over but republicans are dangerous fools and worship their false gods the wealthy.

You know you're deep into tin-foil land when even THE NATIONAL REVIEW is calling bullshit on your propaganda:

Nah, they just call stupid people stupid.

On this particular issue, even the NATIONAL REVIEW is calling you stupid for falling for this BS.

When you can disagree based on FACT and not propaganda, people may stop calling you stupid.

You are the only one spewing propaganda here,
You know nothing of facts, just another mindless Obama zombie trying to win an argument you cannot win.

But it is the politics that are causing all the loss under Obama's so called leadership.
His ideas are a failure and a relic of an old tired mindset that champions failure and misery.
If any good comes out of the Obama presidency it will be that America finally wakes up the results of unbridled liberalism and leaves it far far behind.

I post facts all the time, yet all you can do is sit there with your limp dick and call names. Even the National Review says you're an idiot. The NATIONAL REVIEW of all publications!

There is no argument, just you making an ass of yourself and me laughing at you.

ObamaCare is a disaster in the making, they should start all over and do it right. It's a farce.

Yeah, not allowing them to cancel your insurance if you get sick. Not being denied insurance if you were sick in the past. People who can pay for insurance being sent a bill instead of being allowed to freeload while the rest of us pick up their tab.

That's a reeeeaaaall disaster.

Both the left and the right agreed that health care needed to be addressed but Obama and the democrats pushed this flawed bill through just to get something passed. It needs to be trashed and start over and take their time and let both sides hammer out something that is good for all Americans.
We deserve much better than this.

Precisely what is your problem with health care? What, EXACTLY, upsets you?

It's the same system Romney set up in MASS.
