    Yes, the federal government has created another tax break, meaning we all get to help pay for small businesses to provide health care coverage to their employees.


    Future News: Millions of individual health insurance policy holders are opting to pay the $3,800 fine for not having coverage rather than pay over $9,000 a year to have health insurance coverage for their families.

    Tax cut does not equal tax payer cost.

    Great news here, but, of course, the anti-Obama rage won't permit some to see the benefits here.

    I thought tax cuts for small businesses were a good thing?

    They are. And this is an example of how the free market works. Letting people keep their own money is the responsible thing to do. But your accusation that opposition to the over all plan is a rage against Obama and nothing else is as blind as anything else. And unnecessary

    I'm not saying that at all. One can oppose the plan without railing against every aspect of it. Some, however, are so virulently opposed to Obama that no matter what happens they will oppose it. The same thing occurred for Bush.

    I think what you are missing is the opposition to his big picture. His overall ideology that government, especially the Fed must have a hand in all the woes of the world. If the bigger plan stays in effect then it gives little to no comfort if some small aspect is correct. Neither is it necessary to give credit to it.

    Proving once again that tax cuts works.

    I wonder if the Left will be this excited when Obamacare goes into effect and those people are forced to surrender their insurance.

    ObamaCare also provides for federal subsidies to make healthcare affordable. It won't work in the long run because it involves private insurance, but there are positive aspects to the new law.

    Seems like when it comes to government policies, even the good things come with a price. The "best things in life are free" idea doesn't apply with our government lol.

    It's not supposed to.

    It's an intermediate step. When it fails, we'll have government insurance.

    And even though people like you refuse to acknowledge it, fascism is a bad idea.

    The tax cut could have been enacted without the $7 trillion expense of Obamacare.

    The only thing this proved is that using tax incentives stimulates business and the tax increases Obama wanted , but didn't get, kill it.

    Obama is an economic dunderhead. Liberals still just don't get it.:BangHead:

    That's absolutely the dumbest post I've seen today. :laugh:

    There's a cost to everything. Just where do you think "federal subsidies" come from?

    I don't necessarily disagree with you on this point. There are significant flaws in the health care reform law, but this part is fairly effective.
