    You are not the humble servant of the definition of progressive taxation.

    It was a very odd statement to make, that's all. No big deal.

    On the contrary. The definition in your link says just what I've been posting, and as a bonus points out that the US tax system is progressive. Thanks for buttressing my point.

    Since it has no basis in the Constitution an amendment to make it constitutional is the only way it could be.

    You are lawless. Do you believe it is okay because we have done it for a long time?

    So you made an odd statement and expected no response?

It must be the same for all, whether it protects or punishes. All citizens, being equal in the eyes of the law, are equally eligible to all dignities and to all public positions and occupations, according to their abilities, and without distinction except that of their virtues and talents.
    In the case of Obamacare, people and groups with influence are exempt from the law while others are bound by it, whether they want it or not. Do you not see any erosion here or do you just assume that Rights in the democracies will continue under the good will of its leaders?

    The people who are responsible for that determination decided otherwise.

    I certainly do have several problems with the entire Managed Health Care law and you have wisely hit upon one of them.
