    Since his policies were quite similar to the current President is this a prediction for our immediate future?

    Well, everything always is.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    There is no way "THE 1%" can possibly pay for all the 'EXTRAS' needed to make this Obamacare bill crap a reality.
    I just love it when libertarian/conservatives try to argue against FACTS. And then they resort to lies and childish name-calling in the process.

    If you were trying to disprove my point, you failed miserably. Try again. Disprove that all Americans will be forced to pay the mandate/tax. Oh, and while you're contemplating your response, contemplate that some people would be getting tax CUTS from the ACA, if the Repubs don't kill it.

    The only fact I know is this is a TAX.

    The only fact I know is this eventually will have to have the middle class to pick up the tab. There is no other way for it to work.

    As to name calling, I wasn't calling anyone names. I was stating a fact, this Obamacare bill will cost because of the "extras" like doctors, nurses, hospitals and all the other items/people/devices/etc. that will be need to cover another 30 million people. Only someone trying to sell this bill as a "wonderful thing" is buying it and the saps that believe them. So if you fit into one of the catagories, then all I can say is IMO.

    Tax, mandate, penalty, we both know what thing we're talking about. If you deny the FACT that those with insurance will not have to pay it, then we're pretty much done here.

    The fact is that the average middle class family will get a $4,000 BENEFIT from the law -- not a tax.
    "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."

    -- Adam Smith

    Are you voting for Romney, who passed a similar plan in the state he was in charge of?

    Then we're pretty much done. Because this 'thing' can't possibly work with those that don't have insurance paying for their own HC. This will eventually fall on the backs of the MIDDLE CLASS like every other govt program.
