Case in point: Obamacare alone is likely to double the average cost of health insurance premiums. Sure, part of that is passed on to employers, but they simply make up for it by reducing payroll one way or another. So not only are the middle class forced to pay more, but their merit increases and bonuses drop. That is, if they're lucky enough to keep their job.
What better way to fund a program while claiming it doesn't raise taxes?
