    these taxes on medical equipment etc is a mistake!!

    it will only lead to higher charges from the hospitals/doctors using the widgets and then in turn higher health insurance costs on to us, imo!!

    Ya cause he did not say Most transparent Administration ever. Give it a rest, you defend him like you have a stake in his poll numbers.

    I think everyone was given the impression that this stuff would stop once Obama took over.

    Instead it has increased exponentially.

    I think one would be awful naive and/or stupid to think that, and I'm sure there are a number who do.

    Although for an administration that promised no new taxes, they sure are adding/proposing a shitload that are going to be picked up by the consumer.

    Are you under the impression that trying to deflect off these things somehow makes them better?

    And that's just the beginning. The taxes for health care are going to increase astronomically over the years. I predict unfunded liabilities for health care will far surpass government programs like Social Security.
