    Actually that was not funny. It was very, very cruel. I apologize for that last statement. I am very, very sorry for saying that.

    People with middle class incomes are like ants trapped on a log that is burning from both ends. On the one end things like college and medical care are very expensive. On the other end the government thinks you have plenty of money.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Wrong

    The subsidies aren't paid with FIT. They paid by capital gains taxes on people who make more than $250k/yr in unearned income and by taxes on insurance companies

    Yes I and my family members have directly benefited.


    We are white.

    We are middle class with middle class incomes.


    We have benefited. Saved tens of thousands of dollars.

    That's great. I can't see where I have saved that much, but looks like it did something for me.
