NYT: So, this healthcare law is turning out to be kind of a pain for the middle class, huh? « Hot Air: "Between Obama’s two presidential election campaigns, I wonder how many times we’ve had to endure various iterations of him insisting that he absolutely, unequivocally, sincerely would never raise taxes on the middle class, and that his entire economic mission would center around making the lives of the middle-class more prosperous and reasonable. Funny how, through all of that, he mysteriously failed to mention that the entirety of his crowning legislative achievement directly relies upon crushing market signals and intentionally, forcibly, and significantly increasing the middle class’s health insurance premiums in order to pay for the new redistribution system it created. I’m sure the truth about the system’s real nature just accidentally but rather conveniently got lost in the translation somewhere, along with that pesky little “if you like your plan, you can keep it” line currently causing him so much vexation."
