Quote Of The Week

“If we’re going to play that game, I think that game can be played here as well, because after all, the minimum coverage provision only kicks in after people have earned a minimum amount of income,”...“So it’s a penalty on earning a certain amount of income and self insuring. It’s not just on self insuring on its own. So I guess one could say, just as the restaurant owner could depart the market in Heart of Atlanta Motel, someone doesn’t need to earn that much income.

Neal Kumar Katyal, acting Solicitor General, Obama Administration

Mr Kaytal was arguing before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that if a person does not like the mandate in Obamakare, they can just make less money.

If this isn't the definition of leftism, nothing is. Earn less money so the gubmint can support you.

You just can't make this shit up.

How many times a day do I utter those very words?

If enough people deliberately under-earn so as to avoid the mandate in ObamaKare, the entire health-care industry will come down.

Unbelievable that a government official can get away with this statement and the outrage is
almost non-existent.

Cube, because he's a Dem
