    ECONOMIST: 75% of Obamacare costs to fall on Americans making less than $120,000 a year

    Take Your Medicine, America Ö Stephen Moore, Senior Economics Writer with the Wall Street Journal, told FOX and Friends this morning that nearly 75% of Obamacare costs will fall on the backs of those Americans making less than $120,000 a year.

    ďItís a big punch in the stomach to middle class families.Ē

    Obamacare: Itís not just a big f***ing dealÖ Itís a big f***ing tax.

    Argued in Court That It Was a TaxÖ Now Theyíre Saying Itís Not a Tax Again

    A Fraud Has Been Perpetrated On the American Citizenry

    ---------------------------------------

    Ho-hum. Another day in 0bamaville.

    And if the OP is right, it's a really regressive tax. The middle class gets screwed. Again.

    Is it?

    You need to be in the top 10% of households to have an income over $120,000.

    That means the top 10% is covering 25% of the cost while the bottom 90% is covering 75%


    I thought conservatives loved regressive taxes though.

    Finally admitting your inability to think - good for you.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    In Valerie Jarrett's response to 0bamacare being called a tax or a mandate, she says she doesn't care what it's called because this country is wealthy enough to give everybody health insurance. Of course this is a big liberal crap sandwich. A country that has to borrow a trillion a year to operate, isn't wealthy. The carve outs on 0bamcare violate equal protection. Rich people are pretty much excluded from having to finance this scheme, leaving almost the entire tab on the working middle class. And you're not only stuck with paying your own healthcare but millions of deadbeat citizens and non citizens.

    But this is exactly what Obama wants. The whole purpose of his strangling the energy supply with his drilling moratorium, closure of coal-fired generating plants and veto of the XL Keystone pipeline is to collapse the economy.

    If you are trying to fundamentally transform America, poor economic news could mean 'mission accomplished'. The U.S. doesn't only have a $15 trillion debt. It also has over $123 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities - and not a single penny to pay for them. The only thing left to ponder ... is the country is going to die before 0bamacare has a chance to put the final nail in its coffin?

    A weak nation is ripe for a dictatorial take-over and reshaping. It remains to be seen reshaping at whose hands, but I have my guesses -- wall street bankers, the high finance wealth "creators" (in the sense they print the money), and the "international community" to create a peasant class of disposable people with a small carbon footprint that furnishes the aristocracy with lavish lifestyles.
