“When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.” - P. J. O’Rourke

Well, liberals got their shady wish.
I just hope America remembers how liberals had to bribe Ben Nelson with the Cornhusker Kickback to even get this bill passed in the first place.
And it's amazing to me that people don't consider the impact this has on small businesses that have 50-200 employees. Most of which cannot afford health insurance for their employees. What are they going to do? They can't afford health insurance, but the mandate requires that all businesses with 50 or more employees offer health insurance for their employees. I suppose jobs aren't the number one concern after all....
But at least we finally know one thing: Health insurance isn't a right, but a "tax".
Does this officially make it a tax or does congress have to vote on it first?
"I reject your reality and substitute my own."
*LOL* I think it’s just great .. . Now it’s a tax … and a tax on who?? Certainly not the rich … they can afford any policy they want. Who it’s going to effect most are the poor that can’t afford insurance to begin with . So it’s a new tax on the very people that can least afford it … So now liberals can be rightfully accused of raising the taxes on the poor .
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
scrotus (not a typo) once again rules with corporations. everyone must buy insurance. what a tremendous boon for corporate America.
