    The article is bullcrap.

    Places like Mayo are already dumping Medicare because they are losing money. The only way they make it up is by cutting salaries.

    I know far to many young people who have decided not to go to medical school because of this mess. We are already headed for a shortage of doctors because of the AMA,s miscalculations. It is only going to get worse.

    You guys just bought us a two-tier medical system.

    Great job !

    Okay, then please provide proof of your claim. I provided proof that it isn't.

    That isn't proof dickhead. It is an unsupported article.

    The 3.1% payroll cut was for an existing tax. Not a new one. This guy is a spin doctor...and not a very good one.

    Q: How much will the “tax” penalty be for going without health insurance?


    A: The minimum assessment will be $695 per person (but no more than $2,085 per family) in 2016, when fully phased in. The amount can be higher depending on income. But there are exemptions for low-income persons and others.

    Fact Check

    Maybe you are in the $2,085 or higher category..

    We haven't even addressed the shortage of doctors or rationed care. Those with money can get the best care and of course, Congress is exempted.

    This November's election just became all about Obamacare. Tell me something. If the government can't force me to eat broccolli, but can tax me if I don't, how is this any different?
