ObamaCare Tax Increases Are Double Original Estimate

There are 55 comments on the www.economicpolicyjournal.com story from Mar 13, 2013, titled ObamaCare Tax Increases Are Double Original Estimate . In it, www.economicpolicyjournal.com reports that:

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. The summer 2012 estimate is nearly twice the $569 billion estimate produced at the time of the passage of the law in March 2010.

No one likes this law, except you and few other far left bozos. Non partisan healthcare professionals hate the law.
America deserved a much better law that wasn't ram rodded through just to say Obama did something, that's what it was all about.
No one cared about the substance of the bill.
Something this big should have been debated and tweaked before it became a law.
All this is is a stepping stone to a single payer system.
Americans know this is how Obama operates, that's why they are so adamant about no concessions on gun control.

So you can't name any specific facet of the law that you disagree with?

You don't even take the time to know what it is you're talking about. You're just a puppet. Dancing to the strings your masters pull because you're too stupid to grasp or too lazy to bother to read what it is you claim to not like.

Your ignorance is pathetic. Be thankful that people smart enough to take the time to understand the world around them are taking care of you in spite of your mouth-breathing ignorance.
Your welcome.

1.A Bevy of New Taxes.
2.3 percent excise tax on medical equipment;

40 percent tax on comprehensive health coverage
that costs more than the designated cap; and

New taxes that apply to Flexible Savings
Accounts and Health Savings Accounts.

Etc
2. A Nation of Takers.
Thanks to ObamaCare, liberals will finally have
the large majority of Americans taking money
from the government
3.A Maze of Cross Subsidies.
ObamaCare is also filled with cross subsidies,
a way of transferring wealth without using the
tax code.
4.Perverse Economic Incentives
Patients have little reason to be value-
conscious shoppers in the health care
marketplace, because in the vast majority of
cases someone else is paying the bill.
5.A Health Care Spending Explosion.
Obama believes that if you get more people
covered for even more services — including
numerous “free” services — health care spending
will go down. Healthcare people know this is
wrong.
6.Rationing Is Inevitable. Rationing Is Inevitable.
Rationing Is Inevitable. Rationing Is Inevitable.

ObamaCare is imposing a mid-20th century health insurance model on a 21st century global economy.

You are the ignorant one, blindly trusting in a perverse healthcare plan just because a democrat put it in place. Hopefully enough smart people will wake up the dumb ones like you to what a fiasco this ObamaCare is.
Your welcome.

Freeloaders are going to get sent a bill for their healthcare! Health Corporations who fleece the sick for billions are going to have to take a smaller amount of your money! They have to spend in on care instead of executive pay! Oh No! You can't be denied insurance for being sick! The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

You don't mind them paying billions and billions to invade countries on the other side of the planet, but helping sick Americans is a problem for you?

Don't tax your brain cells too much.

Here's where your health care dollar is currently going:

Wouldn't it be nice if they made them spend it on actually caring for sick people? Oh wait, they did.

That makes sense to me but you may as well try and talk sense into a jackass than republicans. Let um spit out their republican BS to themselves and let's be glad they don't completely control our government.

Let's never forget that next time we don't jump into a war when the commander in chief is a devious piece of pure chit. Don't ever forget folks no more Vietnams and no more Iraqs or Syria or Iran.
