    It won't come in the form of a yearly raise like you are thinking. It will mean more money dumped in my profit sharing plan by the company.

    I am saying let's get rid of that. If you are able to pay and choose not to, too bad, so sad, gonna miss you when your gone. Talk about an incentive. You would not need a mandate.

    Freedom comes with risk. Make that risk real.

    No, he's dead on. Being poor and sick is a choice. I choose to not be.

    I didn't say poor. I said able to pay and choosing not to.

    Here's why I call this bill "unfair": Higher income groups receive a far higher percentage increase in income after tax income than lower income groups.

    [/I]The Republican tax bill that the House and Senate are set to pass as soon as Tuesday night would give most Americans a tax cut next year, according to a new analysis. However, it would by far benefit the richest Americans the most. Meanwhile, many lower- and middle-class Americans would have higher taxes a decade from now ... unless a future Congress extends the cuts.

    The average household would get a tax cut of $1,610 in 2018, a bump of about 2.2 percent in that average household's income, according to a report released Monday by the Tax Policy Center, a nonpartisan think tank that has been critical of the tax overhaul plan.

    However, extremes make averages, and the benefits would be much larger for richer households. A household earning $1 million or more would get an average cut of $69,660, an income bump of 3.3 percent. Compare that to the average household earning $50,000 to $75,000, which would get a tax cut of $870, or 1.6 percent...[/I]

    Here's the link. Look at the charts for 2018 and 2027. https://www.npr.org/2017/12/19/57175...e-middle-class

    I don't know about California, but in NYC and DC $750,00 might get you a small one bedroom condo, but more likely a small studio (one room + bath apartment). Folks earning less than six figure incomes and not forced or choosing to live in a slum have a long commute or share apartments or group houses. People in those places with low six figure incomes are by no stretch of the imagination rich.

    BTW - here's an editorial worth reading: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/18/o...ol-left-region
