The middle class has been the fuel of the American growth machine. Choking those people out hurts everyone.
Why is that? How does it choke people out? You guys keep saying "it's bad" but you don't have an explanation for why it's bad.
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
