The subsidies only exist in some states. Ohio and several others do not expand the Medicaid programs. Some states do not have an exchange. So far none
of the money paid on the premiums is tax deductible except perhaps on the Federal forms and for State purposes, any subsidy would be taxable income.
The question asked of the bosses would be "Why are my hours cut?" a valid question for anyone that is an employee. Forgive me, I was on a cell phone
earlier today and editing is a chore once the text exceeds the _
A Universal Health Care system would require an amendment to the Constitution (just as ACA should have) which is my main personal argument against
this boondoggle as is many Republicans and TEA Party members. For a judge to rule a fine (punishment for breaking the law) as a tax, would have had
that judge removed from the bench in any state if they were on a lower court. Calling non-compliance a tax because the IRS is enforcing it is asinine,
when the IRS is already set up to deal with large volumes of correspondence with the People.
But follow this to the next step, what if you were compelled by law to vote in all elections? What if you were compelled by law to own a firearm and
be prepared to use it? Or even better, what if you and a few investors decided you wanted to create an insurance company that provided better policies
and a competitive price but did not want to be a part of the exchange or accept subsidies? Would your new insurance company have to overcome
extraordinary odds to compete?
I'll be honest, there are many foods that I do not eat, many religions to do not subscribe to, many books I have no interest in reading. As a free
person, I should not be forced into any particular thing or contractual agreement because a few people that I could not legally vote for because they
do not represent my district decided I should become a part of my earned income. Even more so, that my ability to work for a single employer should be
removed income reduced in order to skirt the law in which I will have less income to pay out for this mandatory compulsion.
The country was founded on the principles that no governing body should hold that kind of sway over the personal life on an individual. The tax on
tea and the quartering of soldiers are really quite insignificant compared to edicts on what you must purchase and that your movements are monitored
by electronic means. There comes a point were a line has to be drawn. Enough is enough and saying what I must buy with my labor is that line. That an
agency will have card blanche to chase down my income and property in order to ensure that I have this dictated crap is no different than The Fugitive
Slave Act both in spirit and principle.
Far too often I have heard the phrase "gun to our heads" out of Obama's mouth regarding the shutdown. Maybe he should take a long hard look at what
he is doing to the people by placing this "gun to their heads". And I'll tell you what, I don't drink beer but I will sit down and have a Beer
Summit with Obama to explain it to him if you can make the arrangements.
