Healthcare bill and capital gain

    Do the Republicans object to the healthcare part of the bill, or the little if never discussed increase in capital gains on $250,000.00 or more (wealthy)? I'd bet that's the reason they want to kill the healthcare bill. Has nothing to do with healthcare! Follow the money!

      I bet you are right. They have been convincing people to vote against their own self interest all along.

        Exactly and what better fear tactic then using the phrase if you don't comply the IRS will be after you. People need to do their homework and research this bill. They will find that middle class taxes won't be going up.

    You don't show a single tax on people under $250,000.00. All that are levied are against those over that threshold and employers.

      There's more than one link mate.

    I read the links. All refer to over the next 10 years for the most part. And short of tanning beds, I see nothing affecting those making under $250.000.00 a year.

    1. Only taxed if they decide not to opt in or maintain existing. (No new tax)
    2. With all insured not necessary. (not a tax, was a rich benefit)
    3. Yearly cap and use. (not a tax, benefit of rich)
    4. Already in place, (not a tax, benefit of rich)
    5. Tanning tax (No different then tax on clothes, small affect if any, sunbath)
    6. Middle class for can't afford cadillac insurance (not a tax, was arich bene)

    I still see no impact to any middle class. Forbes trying spin what they wrote.

      I make under $250,000. I don't carry insurance on myself right now. I will be taxed. That's a new tax, because it's new.

      Not true. Insurance doesn't apply to OTC stuff. You used to be able to get OTC stuff tax-free. Taking away the deduction raises taxes.

      It's a tax increase. If someone wanted to put more than 2500 into an HSA(for the tax benefit) they can't anymore. If you make good money and want to save for future health-care expenses, you can't do so pre-tax anymore. Again, taking away tax deductions is the same thing as raising taxes.
      Not already in place, it's a decrease in the tax benefit you can get. Decreasing tax benefits is the same as raising taxes. Saying 'already in place' would be like saying that raising taxes to 70% wouldn't be raising taxes, because we already pay taxes. It makes no sense.

      5. Increasing taxes on HSA withdrawals is... wait for it... a tax increase.
