The tax grab is exactly why the GOP will do NOTHING to get rid of obamacare since they want the money just as bad as the dems who get all the blame. They will make it look like they are "doing their best" to repeal it but will (conveniently) always fail by the slimmest of margins to make us think they are on "our side".

The eighth option (not mentioned) is just to get rid of the whole thing..All it is is a tax that both parties wanted but the dems got the blame for. My guess is that the gop will do absolutely nothing of substance to change the law while claiming they just couldn't quite get enough votes.
Fascism at its worst, government and big business colluding to exclude competition through excessive regulation, taxes and licensing schemes that only the big players can afford to contend with. This used to be the land of free enterprise, but not so much any more. Every license you are required to obtain is a liberty lost and the excuse that these regulations are there to "protect" us is a farce. Only the financial interests of the corporations are being protected.

I think the "freedom or religion" is actually the freedom to think for yourself without retribution since true religion is really just your own belief system about things you can't prove. Organized religion is not true religion in my opinion but "group think" that you are taught to accept as a package. This is not what our founders were protecting.

In the classic sense, a "liberal" used to be a person who believed in liberty. Now they just believe in statism and commuism. The total opposite.
I think your conclusion is already correct.

Inflation "calculates" to be low because while the prices of everything that people NEED continue to rise alarmingly, the price of things that people don't need must fall, since there are fewer people buying. Since The middle class incomes have been basically flat for the last 20 years, the economy can't really grow. The stock market only grows because the presses are rolling non-stop, and big business is squirling away all their profits. The jobs being "created" generally pay much less than the jobs that were lost.

By the same "authority" that they "blew" 22 T on the war on poverty, except that enormous gains in technology were achieved by the moon projects that we all benefit from. We got NO benefit from the wasted 22 trillion.

What If Democracy Is a Fraud?

Thomas Jefferson called democracy "the most vile form of government" because it offers no protection for the rights of man. Two wolves and a chicken voting on dinner. For decades we have been led down the garden path by all of our "leaders" spouting how great democracy is and how we should be spreading it all over the world. Well, now we have it, and it will collapse into socialism, then communism, then tyranny. It breaks my heart to even hear "conservatives" refer to our country as a "democracy". The most frightening aspect of this now is the trend toward making "hurt feelings" and "offensiveness" out to be crimes and the people are falling for it.
