Will you believe it then? When you start seeing the health care bill in action on YOUR paycheck stubs and YOUR W2s.

Some People have said over and over that this health care bill is going to hit EVERY American in their pocket book - and in a big way - but some just don't want to listen.

How many of you know that NOW we will also pay taxes on the amount that our employer pays for our health coverage? Yep, we're gonna have to claim what our employer pays for us as income and pay taxes on it.

Do you also realize that those prized health savings plans will also be taxed, limited ($2500 a year) and you won't be able to use that money to pay for prescription medications that you may need. Now WTH is the point of having a health savings plan if you can't use it for what you need it for?

Did you also know that every company who has 25 or more employees will receive (from the government) a 50% discount IF THEY PUT YOU ON THE PUBLIC EXCHANGE instead of offering you private care? What do you think your employer will do??

  • Since half of the country pays no fed income taxes I doubt they are worried.

  • OMG not again. When will any of you grasp this is not something that is even going to happen for years. And even then, I wouldn't count on it. A lot of things are going to change well before then.

  • Anon :42 The time for changing the bill was BEFORE it was passed. What makes you think because it's 4 years away it's not going to happen?

  • I am not a fan of the chip. But how do you get mark of the beast out of that? People thought the same thing about social security numbers, then drives lisences with the bar code.

  • chips? Isn't that sort of like what the Nazis did to the Jewish people they put in concentration camps? Didn't they tattoo them with serial numbers?

  • Anon: 42 Not going to happen for years???? 2014 is JUST around the corner - you idiot. Find the timeline for implementation of this shit and read it for your own damn self. I'd post the link but your dumb ass would just criticize the link address instead of reading it, but then *some* people are so damn lazy they'll bitch if you don't post a link - It's complacency that perpetuates the stupid gene in this country.
