"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."

Yep and every business is going to love it to .. . Here is the law as it stands now
“for firms which do not offer insurance any insurance, have more then 50 employees and have at least one employee receiving insurance subsidies, they must pay a tax of $2.000 per subsidized employee. The individual mandate requires everyone to purchase health insurance. The tax is applied to all of a firms employees (ater excluding the first 30) not just those that are subsidized. For example a firm with 51 would pay $42,000 in new annual taxes and an additional $2,000 tax for every new hire.
So for 51 employees a company would pay 42,0000 in fines ….. You know I’m just guessing , but I’ll bet that is less they what they pay in insurance premiums for those same employee’s
I hope all the liberals are going to be overjoyed, when your company comes and tells you that they are no longer going to provide you with insurance … Good luck in finding a policy to cover you and your family for $2,000 a year.
