I get this magazine in the mail every week called "The Week" I enjoy reading it I believe this magazine is fairly natural for political views. Their main story was the called âA giant step toward universal health care" (surprise surprise). In this article they talk about some of the new rules that will be implemented in 2018 law as well as the coast that in my opinion will destroy future generations (like myself). This article reports getting its information from The congressional Budget office, "The legislation will cost $940 billion over 10 years". Well for starters ..HOLLY SHIT :eek: that is an astronomical number, as I continued reading it talked about how the government is planning on paying for this... This is where the article begins to get interesting. "Through a combination of higher taxes on the wealthy, industry fees, and reduced spending on Medicare, the bill will actually reduce the deficit by $130 Billion in the first decade and another $1.2 Trillion in the following decadeâ All right now Iâm not an expert when it comes to economics but what I have learned the best way to generate additional revenue for the government is not by taxing the industryâs that employ many of Americans. I believe this is going to lead to more lay offâs in companies to accommodate for the mounting tax bill. I believe this will discourage economic growth and create an even stronger wedge in our total economic well-being. Douglas HoltzEakin states âIf you strip out all the gimmicks and Budgetary games in this bill, youâre left with a law that will raise, not lower, federal deficits by $562 Billionâ My question to all of you is how do you feel this will affect our country economically? Do you feel this bill will reduce our deficit or increase it? Do you agree with my theory about this bill deminiting economic growth in the U.S like Income taxes discourages peopleâs incentive to work as the Laffer curve teaches us?
