Not trying to be mean, but do you think My insurance should be higher because of across the board coverage? I don't, any more than you should be dinged for my health issues. Socialized health care is substandard to what we have and I don't want it, even if it makes liberals feel better.

As for your magic number that defines wealthy business that should be hammered, do you know what will happen? I do. Businesses that big are large enough to hire good enough attorneys that they'll essentially subdivide divisions of their companies to stay under those thresholds and it will be legal.

I'm not saying rich shouldn't pay taxes, I'm not suggesting that big business shouldn't be taxed. What they need to do is close loopholes for deductions or set tax brackets that reward job creation.

I'm becoming more of a fan of the concept of no payroll taxes, other than maybe SS...and going to consumption based taxes if the flat tax won't work.
As long as those Billionaires are recieving those Bush tax cuts I'm not going to listen to any R telling me we cant afford "it". Tax cuts for billionaires or no head start, no investment in education, no health care etc etc. I could make a list of 1000 items that the people need more than a billionaire needs his taxes cut.

My son loses his credit for 10 years. Thats not a small thing.

I've been paying helath care premiums for 35 years. Never been sick, never been in an accident or been hospitalized. Now because I have a fat ass and take $5.00 a month medication I shouldnt be covered any longer? They have got 35 years of premiums out of me and I've not used hardly any of that money. Now lets drop his fat ass. Thats the current system. Keep the profit flowing.

The idea is that when you put these 30 million new people into the insurance system, most are not going to tap their insurance for many years just like I did. Same principle as to why pizza buffets are successful. I visit a pizza buffett, they probably don't make much money but "normal" people eat less and they make a profit. It's spread around over many people. Thats the core of the idea.
