Jun 28, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Washington Post

The Supreme Court's decision to uphold President Obama's healthcare law amounts to a massive political win for the incumbent, an independent validation of the single most prominent - and controversial - accomplishment of his first four years in office.

Obamacare will increase taxes ONLY on high-income Americans, like Romney, who has historically paid much lower tax rates than many middle-income Americans. People who make more than $200,000 a year will be required to pay an additional tax of 0.9%. In addition, there will be a 3.8% tax on unearned income of over $250,000, such as dividends & capital gains. Romney gets most of his money from unearned income, so he, along with other rich people will pay more in taxes. There will also be a surcharge on high-cost health-insurance plans, which will be borne by the wealthy (because they're the only people who can afford such 'cadillac' plans). Wealthy people have access to the best health care there is, their companies can deduct the cost of their insurance plans, and they can exclude the costs from their taxable income. So these taxes on the rich simply levels the playing field. There will also be a penalty for people who can afford health care but choose not to get it. I, for one, do not know of anyone who can afford health care and not get it. As you can see, it will be the rich, like Romney, who will be paying the taxes -- not the middle class -- no wonder the Republicans are against it.
Why all the animous against successful people ? If you work at an auto manufacturer that produces auto's , usually there are the everyday transport type of vehicles that they sell , with a lower margin . Then there are high end vehicles that make your life easier . Those are the ones with a high margin . Those are the ones you really want to sell . But who will be able to buy them ?( Price , affordability ) Certainly not the fast food worker . To sell theme they have to be marketed to a more successful client .
If you attack the successful and tax them down to your level , who will buy your product ? Not the fast food worker . Example holds for all fields of endeavor . Furniture , boats , clothing , You name it . Be thankful for people who are successful , not all green with envy if you want to remain employed . Remember . A poor man has the right to remain dignified , and according to the tennants of american tradition he is as good as anyone else ,
BUT!!! he will not give you a job , or buy your products . Without the wealthy , we ALL STARVE .

Mancy P. Stated in Congress That 'WE have to pass the Bill so we can see what's in it" FACT
Google it and learn
Catch up what is happening with the country before you post
LOLOL...wow! You're still going on about that? How long ago was that, a year or so ago?
If you would catch up with what's going on, you'd know that what she meant by that remark. To put it simply, she meant that once the bill passed, the public would actually see what wonderful things were in the bill instead of just hearing the lies that were being bandied around about it.

Again, educated yourself, please.

Good point. Most Obama supporters can't read or process information so they will just get lost in the 2,600 pages and the 22 new TAXES required.
On the brigth side, ACA will require up to 75,000 new benefit and pension heavy Bureaucrats to push the pitiful American people around and decide who gets care and who doesn't.
how are government bureaucrats going to decide what care I get under my insurance program with a private insurance company?

perhaps you should read the law so YOU understand it...

i agree with you sentiment, but it is not the union that is going belly up.
Does it not stand to reason that if the city goes belly up , and the bankruptcy court relieves the city of it's union payment obligations , that the unions pension fund will not long be able to sustain the patments to their members ? It is simple math .
After that just remember the flow of funds and where the $$ all originates . If the source of origin dries up , All of it's teets go dry , and everybody that feeds from that source will soon starve . You can't hide from reality or actuality , and as the democrats love to say , all of your chickens have come home to roost . This is the legacy of writing checks that you can't cash .
The world lenders will soon lose their sense of humor . They will come to believe that there is no hope of getting their $$ back , and they will stop leneding , and our borrowing is the only thintg that has prrevented the total collapse and default of the US Gov't up till now . With 16 TRILLION in debt we're screwed . Ask yourself. Would you lend $$ to any entity that is 16 trillion in debt ? If you purchased a TV and simply watched the $$ channel ,
( CNBC is one of the best ) for say 2 hrs a day , 2-3 months , you would be more informed about the real state of affairs in our country . And you would be stashing some precios metals and some food . Many stash bullets if they are even more paranoid than me .
We're screwed !! Thank you unions . Thank you democrats . Thank you liberals .

Every major banking crises in the last onehundred years was due to the wealthy and the Republicans were in office on every collapse..

-
Without the wealthy , we ALL STARVE ???

Don't buy into that bullsyt, Trickle down is a proven failure.

It has always been a healthy middleclass that has drove the economy.

Here are the facts''

In the six months before I took office, we lost nearly 4 million jobs.

And we lost another 4 million before our policies were in full effect.

Those are the facts.

But so are these. In the last 22 months, businesses have created more than 3 million jobs.
Last year, they created the most jobs since 2005.

American manufacturers are hiring again, creating jobs for the first time since the late 1990s.

Together, weve agreed to cut the deficit by more than $2 trillion. And weve put in place new rules to hold Wall Street accountable, so a crisis like this never happens again.

The state of our union is getting stronger, and weve come too far to turn back now.

As long as Im president, I will work with anyone in this chamber to build on this momentum. But I intend to fight obstruction with action, and I will oppose any effort to return to the very same policies that brought on this economic crisis in the first place.

Folks sure do have a short memory.

vote Obama 2012. He has brought us out of what of would have been a major Depression.

The Chief Justice is a wimp.

Let me explain it to you Justice Roberts.

If a law is so poorly written that it can be interpreted in an unconstitutional way and a constitutional way, then it must be rejected by the court because government bureaucrats like you will use it inappropriately.

It is not long standing policy to uphold it; that was a liberal invention to protect the New Deal legislation.

Don't be such a dumbass.

Any laws the legislature passes without reading should be struck down immediately by the Court.

The justices who voted to uphold it, refused to read it in its entirety. The legislatures who passed it didn't read it in its entirety, and I'm quite certain the President hasn't read it in its entirety.

Wonderful. America. No longer land of the free; land of the lazy slaves of bureaucrats.

This law is here to stay people! Insurance mandates are a Republican invention designed to make people give their money to the insurance companies that fund Republican campaigns. Do you think it was an accident that caused Romney to require people to purchase health insurance in Romneycare? Do you think he didn't want to punish those that didn't buy insurance? Watch the video clips. Romney enthusiastically endorsed the mandates and penalties included in his healthcare bill. Romney, if elected, is not going to bite the hand that feeds him. He will be able to claim he tried, but he didn't have the votes. He knows how to play the game.

I am not talking about regulating health insurance. The gov is going to regulate YOU. There are many people who don't have ins and don't plan on buying it. That is their business. See that is how a FREE society works.
Unfortunately the cost of medical care for the uninsured is passed on to the rest of us through higher medical costs & higher insurance premiums.

Until hospitals & doctors are allowed to refuse to treat people without insurance (or the ability to pay the full cost of their treatment up front), then the cost is passed on to the rest of us.

Either way we all pay.

The Chief Justice should stop worrying about appearances and his legacy and vote to uphold the constitution.

Chief Justice Roberts, there are men and women putting their lives on the line defending the United States of America and the Constitution.

Surely, you can muster the courage to handle criticism of the court by the left.

Grow some.

Were you just born yesterday? They've been doing that since 1776. That's why they can make you pay income taxes & sales taxes & property taxes & gas taxes & buy auto insurance & register your vehicles & license businesses & regulate industry etc, etc, etc,.
