This proposed subsidy goes to show that Obamacare is a failed program. All
Obamacare did was require everybody to sign up for health care, it did not
decrease healthcare at all. As my doctor told me in a recent visit, Obamacare
just helped health insurance companies. Creating a subsidy will just help health
insurance companies long term.In fact, long term all subsidies just
increase the cost of whatever is being subsidized. College tuition is a good
example of this. The only group that has truly benefited from student loans and
grants is colleges themselves. As student assistance has increased for tuition,
tuition has increased and will continue to increase until the student assistance
is done away with.Subsidies for health insurance will just increase
the cost of health insurance.
Well it's refreshing to see that the democrats are admitting it's a
tax. Clinton's proposal of giving a tax credit for this abominable tax - a
tax the administration insisted was not a tax until the SCOTUS informed them
that it is- is not acceptable. Obamacare is collapsing under its own
unconstitutional weight and fiscal realities. Hopefully Rubio can completely
kill it before the next election but if not the voters can.
Hmm?I thought Obama fixed all this.
Then let EVERYONE take advantage of the tax, not just those who pay LITTLE to NO
Funny to read all the conservative commentators criticize Clinton's
proposals. What's the difference between her proposals and your
conservative proposals of tax cuts and vouchers?
More deceipt from a politician. The Feds blame the States for not
expanding medicaid but the Feds only pay for the bill for a short time. They
then make the States pay for all of it. The Feds borrow the money to pay the
initial costs but States have to cut benefits or raise taxes to pay later on.Other deceipt: giving a tax credit to people who dont pay taxes.
Payroll taxes dont count becuase those go directly toward a person qualifying
for social security and medicare. Certainly having people pay towards these
benefits is fair and should not be off set with ficticious tax refunds. Now Hillory wants us to pay for the healthcare insurance for so called
Middle Class Americans then if they ever do pay some minor costs (5% of income),
she wants us to pay 5,000 towards those costs as well. Simply more excuses to
try and buy peoples votes.
Make someone else pay is stealing.
Is Clinton's plan a tacit acknowledgment that Obamacare failed in its
promise to reduce the costs of healthcare?
It is the same mentality as cutting some off one end of your blanket and sewing
it on the other. "Bending the cost curve down" to quote Mr. Obama would
be a better approach, not simply passing costs on to some unknown entity.
