The Average American has a much better breakdown that I could provide. Honestly, I couldn’t get through the breakdown of it before my head started to spin and daggers were shooting out of my eyes.
Here’s my synopsis:
More taxes! Medicare Cuts! More regulation! Don’t worry about a panel deciding when they are going to unplug Grandma, they won’t plug her in in the first place. And hospice? Yeah, cutting that too. Wanna get a private plan? Taxed. Invest in a small business? Taxed.
If you really want good healthcare, become a drug dealer undocumented pharmacist. That way your income will be off the books. The investment in your home business won’t qualify for the additional tax. And it can be assumed that you aren’t selling major brand pharmaceuticals. Just don’t expect your *ahem* employees to have a tan.
Oh right. That deduction you have been able to take for medical expenses? Gone. I will be the first one to tell you that there was room for reform before. It was a heavily regulated system masquerading as a free market system.
This bill has absolutely nothing to do with health or care and everything to do with control. It’s a thinly disguised ploy to bankrupt the people and make everyone dependent on the government. When you control the health of the people, you control the people.
