Like vampires, the GOP decide to unveil their tax scam bill in the dark of night. The light of day would make this thing not just catch on fire but explode.
Removing the individual mandate does not help the poor and we’ll add an incredible burden to all of us and here’s why. Hospitals must treat people that come in on an emergency basis. If you don’t have insurance they still have to treat you. That $695 went into a fund to help hospitals pay for those people who had no insurance.

I wonder how much of the 700 billion dollars that Apple has in its coffers is going to go back to the people?
