    Hey Democrats

    If you wonder why you are accused of being anti-business, this is a great example.

    House Weighs Insurer Profit Tax, Reduces Wealth Levy (Update1) - Bloomberg.com

    In fact, profit margins for the insurance business are below the average profit margin for a typical American business.

    A "windfall tax" on an industry with no windfall profits is remarkably idiotic.

    They have to try and pay for the monstrocity they propose.

    These assholes never get it, when you over tax business they pass the cost on to US.

    If there are no windfall profits then the tax wouldn't apply, no?

    This seems to be what people like MidnightM want, though, since they believe insurance companies will benefit hugely from having millions more in the system.
