    It's absolutely amazing how little Libbos know about the tax code. They mistake "rebates" for "returns". "deductions" for "loopholes" etc.

    Incredible!

The former puts money into the government coffers, the latter takes money out. The government takes money away from the former, and "hands it out" it to the latter.


    You understand that the EITC doesn't necessarily mean you have a negative effective tax rate. Right?

    my insurance costs have doubled in the time leading up to the PPACA. to me, this seems more of an indictment of our inefficient, employer-based health care. employers should not be health care providers. it makes American businesses less competitive.

    Actually, the rates went up, because Obamacare requires to raise their claims cash reserves up to 85%. The insurance are going to have to make up that loss somewhere. The only place they can do it, is by raising premiums.

    my rates doubled before the PPACA was even considered.

    certainly. mostly because the PPACA leaves in place the inefficient employer-based health care model. an employer should not be one's health care provider.

    Group plans--like all bulk purchases--are the best way for common folk to get insurance. It's how business works; volume vs. profit margin.
