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.
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.
"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."
