The perpetual story

If you want to know why this country is $18+ trillion in debt, look no further than the Democrats looking to roll back the "Cadillac tax" in Obamacare.  From Social Security to Medicare to anything else, programs start out as "paid for" and then there is inevitable political pressure to expand benefits and roll back taxes.  End result: more debt.

Ah Democrats, scourge of the rich and powerful.

Notice that as they try to repeal this soak-the-rich-and-unions tax, the other Obamacare tax - the one on poor people who try to avoid buying insurance - only continues to get bigger and more burdensome as time goes by.
