    The existence of such a threshold will affect employer behavior. There will be a temptation to lower the hours of workers who are hovering around that threshold, to take them out of the equation when it comes to dealing with the employer mandate.

    Wait, employers react negatively to a tax increase? Don't tell the liberals, it'll destroy their worldview.

    RAVING is what the Left is doing about Obama lowering the deficit by 2/3!

    How did he do it?

    I don't know, based on your posts above you seem pretty confused about this concept and I doubt you self-identify as a liberal.

    But assuming you do get it, the problems with the GOP's bill should be becoming pretty obvious.

    I'm in favor of lower taxes, the concept is pretty clear to me.

    If you're talking about the liberals in the Minnesota and Massachusetts delegations, they've always been against the medical device tax.

    Senators Klobuchar, Bayh, Lugar, Franken Push to Remove Proposed Fee on Medical Device Makers (September 15, 2009)

    Kerry: Tax on Medical-Device Makers Could Derail Innovation
    (September 22, 2009)

    Etc.

    That's why President Obama (praise be unto Him!) introduced his Jobs Bill in 2011.

    You don't know the difference between the deficit and the debt?

    Why am I wasting my time with you, dope?

    Last chance for you, Todd - make it retard-free.

    I do. I also know you keep saying Obama cut the deficit in half.
    For some reason, you can't explain how he did it.

    Now you know that any thread you're in will never be retard-free.
