Affordable Care? Didn't the IRS just hire thousands of new agents?

    Interesting article on the Supreme Court's Affordable Care Act decision. Generally, I'm of the opinion that the political elites name bills and laws in true Machiavellian fashion; that is, a piece of legislation's ultimate purpose is to create a slush fund or leverage votes but must be named something magnanimous and positive and propagandized as such - No Child Left Behind, Community Reinvestment Act, Social Security, AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, anything with Free Trade somewhere in the acronym, etc. You'd think we'd catch on quicker, but unfortunately we think of things in election cycles and skirt details unless they're blared to us in our Facebook news feeds...
