Re: Obamacare

neup99, The Fed already controls what they pay for Medicare so they aren't taking over anything. They are changing how they determine payment. I find it interesting that the same group of people that demands teachers be paid based on results would be so offended that doctors face the same expectatio...

Re: Obamacare

And for the stop sign comment. You ripped into me for saying the law "required" people to buy insurance. I'm simply pointing out the law requires you to do something in the same way street laws do. You either do it, or you pay the fine (tax). You are "required" to do both, and if...

Re: Obamacare

The Cigarette tax is a tax paid by those who choose to pay it. It isn't mandatory that a person pays this tax. They can quit smoking a never pay a cent in taxes. Thanks for making my point. No one can "choose" to quit health care. Sooner or later, everyone needs care in one way or another...

Re: Obamacare

How about smokers? Those who don't quit smoking will put an increased burden on the health care system and will therefore be responsible for increasing others insurance rates. Should the government impose a penalty....ahem a tax......on them? It's the exact same reason a tax was imposed on them for...

Re: Obamacare

Apparently some people still have no idea what is in the new Health Care Law. They didn't nationalize anything. One of it's biggest provisions is that people are finally REQUIRED to buy health insurance. Everyone uses health care sooner or later, I have no problem with requiring that people be able ...

Re: Walker

I am truthfully sick to death of all of this complaining. Something I was taught at an early age was don't complain or dwell on something either you don't have control over or can't offer a logical solution to the issue. Are you going to run for office and make the change? Are you going to lend a h...

I'll call BS. If they donated all of their profits to charity, then fine, good for them.

Re: Walker

Tooten,

My comment was intended just as much to point out we need to reform the tax code as anything else. There's no reason anyone that makes that kind of money shouldn't be paying something.

Although, I supposed $510,000 to buy a governor could be counted too...
