Obamacare: Largest, Middle-Class Tax Increase in History
If you're a middle class citizen, then you've probably gotten "the letter". It will tell you how much your health insurance premiums are going to rise under Obamacare, and which Obamacare packages you'll be required to choose from.
The people lining up to get their heavily-subsidized Obamacare policies are Mr. Obama's "constituents"... primarily, the 47% of Americans who don't pay federal income taxes.
You, mr. middle-class citizen, are the one who is going to have to pay WAY more than your actual insurance risk would warrant... so that Mr. Obama will have the money necessary to give his followers their policies for free.
Take me, for example. An acquaintance with half my income is getting an Obamacare subsidy that is so generous that she can easily afford an Obamacare "gold" policy... and pay HALF the premium that I will have to pay for an inferior, Obamacare "bronze" policy.
More and more, as the years roll by, it makes sense to do just like they've been doing in Greece for the past few decades...
... stop working so hard, kick back, and let the government benefits roll in and jack the national deficit up to the stratosphere!
I do not believe that premium subisidies for lower income Americans come from premiums of higher income Americans. There are several funding sources for the subsidy, but skimming money from premium payments of higher income Americans is not one of them according to any of the websites (factchecker.org, etc.).. Can you please give a source for your statement?
