wait until the homosexual marriage lobby discovers how many married gays are now 3/5 of a person for tax exemption purposes
welcome to the party, pals!
So legalizing gay marriage was just a sinister plot to tax them more?/sarc
The way the silver plan details read it looks like a family of 4 will pay for every bit of their HC except catastrophic occurrences.
That would mean eye care, vaccinations, physicals, broken bones and stitches and minor hospitalization like tonsils would all be out of pocket.
The idea of getting a lot of young families to pony up to make this work sounds good if they can afford platinum plans.
What isnt being considered is that folks raising kids have a lot of expenses such as dental care, braces, glasses and chronic conditions like asthma that really add up and they would get no help in this plan that I can see. I'm not finding all the facts in this foggy plan, but it looks like the bestway to afford cheap HC is to be completely on the dole.
Working families making under $225,000 are going to be hit hard.
If we are hit with the slightest inflation as the FEDS continue to destroy the US dollar to achieve 0bama’s goal of doubling US exports, incomes will go up to keep up with the loss of buying power.
What are the odds that the Gov’t will recalibrate their calculators in a timely manner in order to keep folks from being totally screwed.
Let’s all remember that the government recognizes your marriage only if you buy a marriage license. If you get married in church and keep it between you and God, the government will still consider you single.
The first scenario fits my husband and I to a tee. We cannot possibly survive on the income listed to qualify for a subsidy, but we also cannot afford to pay the exorbitant premiums for Obamacare. So how in the world is this “affordable?”
Actually one of about 59 incentives in benefit programs and the tax code that provide perverse incentives for shacking up over marriage (or encourages long-married senior citizens to divorce on paper).
DH says we should have divorced before our kids went to college — we would have received HUGE breaks on tuition on what we make individually and if one of us had legal custody. Salaries combined, we were hit full force.
We both have private insurance through our employers and have “been assured” (HA) that nothing will change. Neither my insurance nor his now covers the other, as it was before obamacare.
Maybe it IS time to draw up the divorce papers!!
Has anyone on the floor made these specific arguments, or in factual handouts to constituents?
I remember putting some spreadsheets together when the numbers came out quite awhile ago, and was amazed that the “marginal obamacare and income tax rate” exceeded 100% in these income brackets. How ANYBODY can justify this is amazing.... It is not like a married couple each making 35-40,000 dollars per year are rich, but I guess that they are in obamaville....
“If the results presented in this and the previous column arent enough to persuade Republicans and conservatives that its now or never time to defund this madness, what ever will be?”
The author implicitly assumes that the gop cares what happens to “the little people.”
The thing about this is it kind of compliments a strategy I think conservatives should embrace: boycotting state marriage. Go get married in church and skip the license.
I have a feeling there are going to be lots of people crying when they see how much they’re going to have to pay. And even more crying when they find out Granny or Momma is going to be sent home to die without pain meds.
We here know this is going to be bad. Most of the idiots in this country have no idea. I really believe this country will be third world status within 5 years.
My Wife and I fit that Demographic to a tee.
Look what the war on marriage has done so far.
There’s an old saying in the computer field: “That’s not a bug. It’s a feature.”
