When tax contributing workers make SO LITTLE that they qualify for a subsidy, the end result is a wash.

They get as much back in subsidy as they put into taxes.

Obamacare is creating more government DEPENDENCY by the people.

Just remember .....

The more the government GIVES to people today, the MORE it can TAKE away from people tomorrow.

And when that happens, it will be the end to liberty and freedom and the beginning of TOTALITARIANISM (tyranny).

That is all incomes below $30,000. There is not a Southern State with a $25,000 median income. That post dates Obama

No. The GOP hasn't been trying to get people dependent on the government. That's the job of the Democratic Party who wants EVERYONE to 'get' stuff from the government and to be dependent on them rather than being self-sufficient.

The GOP, on the other hand, wants CORPORATE tax breaks and welfare.
