    Do you have any thoughts on Dodd-Frank and ACA?

    I think the regulatory burden is placing a larger strain on companies than people give credit. Particularly small businesses who lack the resources for compliance.
    Regulations have an impact for sure. The magnitude really depends on how the regulations are drafted and much work remains to be done regarding the implementation of both Dodd-Frank (which ironically does not really end the "too big to fail" situation) and the Affordable Care Act. In both cases, there is a lot of uncertainty.

    The Affordable Care Act is projected to reduce the number of uninsured persons, by about half (to around 30 million persons). There will likely be some dislocations in the private insurance market. Those dislocations could have cost/service implications. There remains considerable uncertainty regarding the impact on overall health cost trends, particularly if the supply of providers does not keep up with demand for health services if the increased coverage leads to increased utilization. CBO's latest assessment contains a particularly worrisome hint.

    http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/fil...ageEffects.pdf

    During the first four years after 2014 when its major provisions take force, the subsidy per enrollee is forecast to grow at an annual rate of 3.5%. During the final four years of the 10-year forecasting horizon, the average subsidy is forecast to increase at an annual rate of 5.9% (a 68% acceleration in the rate of increase). Very likely, this subsidy reflects, at least in part, overall health cost trends which will be driven by numerous factors. The subsidy estimates do not provide any indication of the quality of coverage that will be available for purchase. That will depend on factors such as policy terms, number of providers, quality of providers, etc.

    My post #363 of this thread... several pages ago:



    Your record.... it's broken.
    Your post means absolutely nothing other than it acknowledges that income tax revenue doubled and you cannot explain how that happened with a 10-10-5% tax cut over three years. You see liberals are incapable of understanding how to create jobs and would rather have 1 person paying 1000 in taxes vs. two people paying 500 each. That just doesn't compute for people like you

    Revised down, Revised back up. Revised down. Like clowns juggling at the circus.



    Down to 119K. Back up to 148K.

    -.1 % up to .1% up to .4%

    More than 650K dropped out of the Labor Market in March. Let's add up the job gains over the last 3 months. At least right now until the next "revision". When Obama took office 80 million capable Americans were not in the Labor Market. That number now sits at 90 million.

    504K jobs over the last 3 months compared to 663K people who completely left the Labor Market in March. That's a deficit of 159K

    15% of the entire population is on Food Stamps

    Some 15% of U.S. Receives Food Stamps - Real Time Economics - WSJ

    Let's break out the champagne bottles. We're in a roaring economy.

    Let me know when we reach 5% unemployment like Obama promised we'd be at right now if we passed his Stimulus

    Carry on with your propaganda

    In general, tax revenue = tax base * tax rates

    Hence, tax revenue can increase when rates are cut if the tax base expands more than tax rates are cut. Hypothetical example for illustrative purposes:

    A society has a tax base (income) of $1,000 and an effective tax rate of 25%. Tax revenue amounts to $250.

    The tax rate is cut to 22.5%. Five years later, the tax base has increased to $1,250. Tax revenue now amounts to $281.25.

    Under this illustration, the tax rate was cut 10%. Tax revenue had increased 12.5%.

    In five years the population would have increased.

    Did you read your own article? It's one guy's spin.

    UBS's Drew Matus argues that this dropping participation rate is largely due to shifting American population dynamics. Specifically, we're running out of workers.
    Youth unemployment is at 16%

    Black youth unemployment is near 50%

    We're not running out of workers

    Anyways, don't let reality get in the way of your narrative.

    the participation rate drop has nothing to do with the sequester.

    Right, the population has increased since Obama took office and yet we have fewer people employed today than when the recession began and a declining labor market. Those are the facts. Do liberals ever admit failure?
