Health Care Reform: Tax Hikes on the Way

5000 years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, “Pick up your shovel, mount your asses & camels, I will lead you to the promised land.”

75 years ago, Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, & light up a camel, this IS the promised land.”

Now you know who has stolen your shovel......, taxed your asses, raised the price of camels, & mortgaged the promised land.

I'm on the fence when it comes to health care reform. I think it will help a lot of Americans, it's just whether it will also hurt a lot of Americans too. While taxes may increase for some, hopefully premiums will decrease or coverage will increase for many more.

I want vision care. My company just had to add mental health care coverage. I think more folks could be helped with vision care.

Where was that lobby group?

They couldn't read the fine print.



On that note, why is dental seperate than health insurance? My nose, my lips my chin are all covered by health insurance but my teeth aren't. ????

I think that if you get someone to punch you in the mouth and knock them all out, it's covered under medical.

It will help a lot of Americans, short-term. It will hurt America, long-term.

Another step away from liberty.

Hello everyone,

There are different candida diets that you are meant to be on for months at a time. The length of time on a Candida diet depends on the length of time one has had. The reason is that Candida is difficult to eradicate through diet alone. People are put on the anti-fungal (candida) diet for 2-3 weeks, along with natural supplements. They usually eradicate the Candida in that amount of time. It is vital to take the supplements while on the diet.

Thanks and Regards

In the UK an employer pays no national insurance contributions on salary up tp £5720pa. Everything aboove that threshold he pays 12.8%. Along with employee contributions that is how state pensions and the NHS is funded. If he pays someone say £35,000 a year his NIC cost is another £3747.82, or roughly $6109

What percentage of the wage bill does health insurance cost an employer in the states?

£35,000 is equivalent to $57,050
