What exactly did the speaker say?
We know you get quotes and the voices confused often.

Pelosi: "We Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It"

:wave:

Hey, so why is health-care taxed?

Just like clock work. You say 'should I google this? Nah, Im totally right!'
Now here's the quote in context and I have one question...

Lady speakerYouíve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I donít know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention ó itís about diet, not diabetes. Itís going to be very, very exciting.ĒBut we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy

How could they have heard about whats in the bill if they still had to find out whats in it?

Trick question! Heres a photo of a senator reading the bill before it was passed.

If I don't want foreign invasion insurance, am I allowed to not pay taxes to pay for the military? :chin:

Probably enough Americans would gladly contribute to the military anyway, so it would probably be a pretty good deal for me. Extra money in my pocket, and no trade off really.

The proper analogy would be the government requiring you to hire a private company to provide you with security.

Why is what working class people spend on health-care taxed?

If they really wanted to make health care more affordable, they would stop taxing those with the least ability to pay.
