"If" is not the operative word. Health care "reform" WILL increase taxes. The Democrat plan will create a massive new Federal bureaucracy that will definitely mean more taxes. The Republican plan (lack of) will allow the insurance companies to continue screwing us. That will also lead to increased taxes to handle the uninsured.
As I have said before, getting the government and companies (fringe benefits) involved has led to the current mess.
WTGTTTS (whatever the government touches turns to sh....)
And that is by design so that those in government can increase their power, at your expense. (They have the limos, perks, houses, super medical care, super pensions...)
