Taxing Health Benefits

Someone explain to me (who voted for this idiot) how this is in ANY way good for the country?

Oh yeah . . . . I remember, he is just spreading the wealth around . . . asshole.

I'm a college grad busting my tail at a full time job, and filing single w/no kids I am already getting nailed with taxes, just to have my health benefits taxed as well.

fml

/rant done. Just got done watching the news and I was just hacked off.

Re: Taxing Health Benefits

McCain wanted to do this too. In fact I'm pretty sure Obama used it against him. It sucks. So far with this universal healthcare it looks like we are going to get hit with higher taxes and fees, yet not get any benefits for it. Healthcare companies are the only winners, like always.

The whole point is that the system is broken, so how is it going to help by throwing more money at a broken mess? It just gets messier.

Re: Taxing Health Benefits

Yeah, I agree. Its like Medicare for people of my generation. We'll pay into it our whole working lives just for the POS to go bankrupt right before retirement.

Why not do this the cheap way with less government interference? Require everyone to have a private savings account which a portion of their income goes into after every paycheck. Allow the end-user to choose to use that money for health insurance, or allow themselves to self-insure.

I just know Obama is going to kill my folks in new tax hikes and allowing the Bush tax cuts to run out. I just never thought someone my age with my income would get nailed with this too. Stupid liberals with big government wanting their hands in everyone pockets, and to be in bed with everyone else. :-(

Re: Taxing Health Benefits

You youngins are the ones who put this guy into power and it is you who will have to pay for his runaway spending. What will happen is that it will at some point put private insurance out of business and make you more dependent upon the government "plan". Now that change you can believe in. Ultimately, this is not about doing the right thing for the country, rather this is to keep the dems in power. Do you realize that there is a bill working its way through the house that will allow him to run for a third term?

Funny, that rumor started before he was even inaugurated. :kick:

I dislike Obama, but let's not be stupid.

Re: Taxing Health Benefits

Lets hope they get annihilated here in 10 and 12.

My mentor converted a few million USD to AUSD and he is doing really well with it. It doesn't really matter how his investments work, as long as the USD continues to suck (and will get worst as $5T was just willed into existence) vs AUSD he'll come out on top.

Hey. . . I didn't vote for Obama, McCain was an embarrassment, but a lesser of two evils defiantly. Not everyone in my generation is a lib. Most of this liberal-socialism came from my parents generation, hippies, woodstock, etc. and they just pass it down to their kids.

Obama didn't get my vote, nor the vote of many of my friends. I'd say he got the vote of a lot of ignorant people (young ones included) that wanted to be part of a "historic" event with him being the first "minority" president.

I'm still waiting for his approval rating to get really low and then have people start calling each other racists because we don't like him.
