    This is why the democrats oppose it??

    “Under current law, people who receive more federal money than they need to buy insurance must refund only a portion of it to the government; the Republican plan would require full refunds.”

    What?? So the senate democrats want to impose a $29 billion tax on small companies rather than make people refund any money that exceeds what they need to buy their government mandated insurance?

    These people are nuts.

    It’s all going to be irrelevant on June 25th anyway when SCOTUS tells Obama to go back and read his copy of the Constitution.

    Keep the tax in place

    Given the horrific profit margins associated with all thingd “medical” they can easily pay the tax. The only thing the loos of the tax will do for humans is buy the CEO, CFO and thier designated favorites a new car, home or lake property.
