    I know what you posted and that is what I responded to. I doubt seriously that you are an award winning economist or that you have the resources the CBO has to calculate how Obamacare will effect the economy.

    What if we actually held people accountable for their actions? For instance those that sign off on loans they can't afford.

    Once we get Wall Street executives to be accountable for their role in crashing the economy, then I will be all for holding main street accountable for their part in the problem. The truth is, Wall Street got by with playing loose and free with investments and crashed the economy and no one was held accountable for that.

    but hey, don't let this little dose of reality stop your rant.
    what is the actual effective rates of each era

    if you think 40% isn't bad you should pay the same rates

    nothing is more annoying are constant calls from the many parasites for OTHERS to pay more.

    I was being facetious, or ironic, but it seems I'm not very good at it.

    You may think it presumptuous of me to be advising Americans or being critical of their policies but in fact the problem with leftists crosses international borders and effects us all everywhere. I battle against American, Canadian and European Leftists because the same consequences of their policies are everywhere and, as interested persons on the freedom of the individuals all over the world, it seems to me we have to stick together. PeteEU gets involved here in the same, hoping to extend the influence of Leftism, in whatever form that takes.

    Please feel free to rubbish Canadian leftists all you want, and I certainly won't look at it as an attack against my country.

    Which unregulated business are you referring to?

    It doesn't matter if they have 50+ full time employees. Papa John's has 50+ full time employees, and so the franchise is not considered a "small company" for Obamacare purposes.

    I think this is a downright fib. Plus, it says at their corporate site that franchise places offer those benefits already to their employees -- even the part-time ones. What do you make of that? Better Benefits: Papa John's Restaurants | Papa John's: Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.
    Well, Maggie, I read it, and so I noticed that they don't "get it". Here is the relevant section:

    Shift Leader, Manager Designate and Restaurant Team Member Benefits

    Part-time team members (shift leaders, drivers & team members) are eligible to participate in the following programs:

    Health, Future and Life Benefits

    Medical and EAP Insurance
    Dental Insurance
    Vision Insurance
    Short-Term Disability
    Hospital Indemnity Insurance
    401(k) Plan
    Paid Vacation
    Term Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance

    Employee Perks

    Direct Deposit
    Weekly Paychecks
    Flexible Hours
    Pizza Discounts
    Training and Recognition Programs

    Drivers are also eligible for: Tips and daily cash payout for mileage reimbursement
    and so they are eligible to choose to pay for these things. Nor does it say what specific plans this includes, or how much it costs. Do you know many part-time pizza delivery guys who get health insurance through their work? Because I worked restaurants for about 7 years, including two at a five-star steak place, and the only people with health insurance were the general managers and the chefs.


    None of which is really relevant to the point of the OP, which is that the increased burden on business will result in less demand for workers.

    If you live near a VA hospital and are willing to put up with crappy healthcare. No thanks.

    Well, respectfully to ROFLpublican (and probably many others on this site), he is young. He's in school. As people begin to see greater and greater percentages of their paychecks going to pay their taxes? If they are successful, that is? They will, just as many others, begin to look around and say, "Hey, what a minute here. This isn't right. I've worked my ASS off to get where I am, and the government is taking more and more of my money every year."

    Until then, it's all rhetorical because it doesn't effect them. When it becomes about dollars-and-cents (if they are ever that fortunate), they will better understand.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    until everyone has to pay more taxes when the government spends more, we will get more and more and more government spending because those who aren't paying income taxes are close to having more votes than those of us who do
