I don't know any liberals who primary concern is raising taxes. This is just a stupid argument you guys use. I think government should fund certain things, those that I think are underfunded I give to directly (ie $1000 to planned parenthood). I don't pay an extra $1000 in taxes so $700 can go to IMC and $2 to PP.

ACA is not a tax law. Manipulating your 'income' to get subsidies intended for people between 100% and 400% of the federal poverty level to take advantage of a health care program you are on the record as being quite strongly against is pretty bad.
okay

It was a reasonable proxy for poor and I'm pretty sure you know that.
