Obamacare was crafted in the back rooms of Congress. Congressional staffers and industry lobbyists scribbled away, writing the massive law deep into the night, night after night. Everyone wanted to make sure they got what they wanted. The insurance industry and Big Pharma made sure they got new mandates forcing Americans to buy their products. The politicians got lots and lots of new taxes wedged skillfully into the nooks and crannies of the bill.
I thought that families that made under $250k/year weren’t going to see their tax bills rise. I am pretty sure that’s what the president said.
But I suppose we’ve learned by now that what this president says, and what he does are 2 different things.
