Give Me Your Money – All Your Money!

Now that ObamaCare is law, there are many celebrations amongst those who supported the rhetoric of Obama/Pelosi/Reid. “We must take away the power of the insurance companies”; “we must fix a broken healthcare system”; “healthcare is a right and not a privilege”; and my personal favorite “there are 48 million people in this country [...]
