this isn't a tax-increase on the Middle-class.
I am lower Middle-class, and my taxes aren't going up in 2014.
therefore, I am not facing a tax-increase.
only in a backwards convoluted way, could someone see this as a tax hike on the middle-class.
It's a new tax that can be potentially levied on members of any class.

Taxing a citizen for simply paying cash for their own medical care (or using none at all), or taxing an employer for NOT providing insurance as an employee benefit is INSANE. Complaining about national obesity while DROPPING height/weight ratio as a factor allowed for setting medical care insurance premium rates is also insane. Basing medical care premiums on a percentage of income is also NOT 'equal' treatment under the law.
There is no limit to the "nice" things that a gov't can do, but what federal power, granted by the constitution, has suddenly allowed "PRIVATE" medical care insurance to become a public responsibility and a new federal power? It fail to see why, if UHC was desired that it was not passed directly into law (medicaid for all, with a % of income as the fee), rather than using a massive income redistribution SCAM to do so indirectly and incrementally.
