Buckle up, the nw tax starts January 1, 2018


The “Health Insurance Tax” is mandated under the Affordable Care Act. It levies insurance companies with a 4 percent to 6 percent tax on every health plan sold in America, with the exception of coverage provided by firms that self-insure their employees.

Begins January1, 2018.

Where’s the democrats and their legislation to delay, end this new tax???


Forced to buy something we don’t want or need is that the function of government ? :roll_eyes:


Democrats and legislation to delay a new tax? Lou…you know better.


Canada’s “free” Health Care is “paid for” ten times over by Canadians being over-taxed. ObamaCare corruption is nothing in comparison. You guys are getting hosed for sure but you aren’t as far along as we are…yet.


In the lefts quest for free, they want to emulate the Canadian/UK single payer joke.


Yep. That’s what you guys are in for. I was really hoping that Trump would help get rid of Obamacare. You guys don’t want what we have up here. Trust me. Trudeau is talking about raising the taxes even higher so everyone can have “better” care. No one knows “better” means but it sounds good and they eat it up.


It’s interesting as we had great care in the US.

Now government tells you what must b covered. Hence the high cost of healthcare.

We also have a habit of demanding the best and more with no costs spared.

Add to that, the problem in the US with obesity and over wight and you have the prefect seasons why the cost of healthcare continues to rise.

Senior have medicare, (government single payer) 30% of medicare is spent on the last 6 months of life.


Well that was the dripping promise we heard for 7 years, but when all you have is repeal and your replacement plan is WORSE, you get 70 failed attempts to do so.

Some morons think there should be a replacement which is nonsense.


It is how he duped the BOD’s, but no, the PPACA remains the law of the land.


And in the end, the dems complain about the tax cut proposal and how it will hurt the middle class while do nothing to get rid of the ACA which is killing the country.

1 trillion wasted on healthcare this year and climbing. And no, single will make it far worse.

Just like you John Boy, hypocrites one and all.

p.s. The do nothing dems are supported by their do nothing friend RINO’s in the Seante.

They give the perfect reason why we need term limits to end the stench in Washington.


People in the US just ignore the news that tells the negatives of single payer, the tax increases, the waiting likes and sometimes substandard care. All they can focus on is FREEEEE!
