Memo to the "low information voters": Obama Care is not affordable

It is called "The Affordable Health Care Act" but affordable it is not:

"As for small business, the overall tax increase this year is substantial. The new listed top rate of 39.6% doesn't include the phaseout of deductions that will take the actual rate to 41% or so for many taxpayers. Add the ObamaCare surtaxes on investment income (3.8%) and Medicare (0.9%), as well as the current Medicare tax of 1.45% (employee share), and the real top marginal tax rate on a dollar of investment income from a bank savings or money-market account will be about 46%. 
Throw in state taxes, and the marginal rates in many places will be in the mid-50%-or-higher-range." (WSJ)

The bottom line is that there is nothing affordable about it.  On the contrary, it is very expensive and unsustainable.
