    It's clearly a tax. The implication of the ruling is that taxes are raised in proportion to the penalties for not having insurance.

    It's a tax that will actually hit a relatively small percentage of the population, however.

    the true irony would be implementing a tax on any citizen that does not buy a gun.

    look, you don't have to buy a gun, but the fact you don't have one increases the cost of security in this country. You should be taxed for the increased cost of security.

    can't wait to see progressives see another government expansion come back to bite them.

    don't worry about the income tax people, this is to soak the rich! NOT!

    Some are, but most seniors are white because America was a primarily white country when they were born. Besides, life expectancies for Blacks and Hispanics are lower than those for white people.

    Can't speak to your particular situation, but across the country health care costs flattened out for a few years due to the recession. Now that the economy is growing again HC costs are rising again. They have been rising much faster than inflation for decades.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    So, why would Mitt want to repeal the better version of his bill?
    You will have to ask Mitt Romney. I don't support him. He's willing to collaborate.
