1. Oooooohhhh! How exciting! $5K to buy insurance!?
That'll buy at least 2 month's worth. And for people on Medicaid (i.e. not folks with lots of disposable income), a "tax credit" is going to end up paying for food, clothing, shelter, and car repairs, not insurance.

Personal retirement account? What the stock market? How can the government guarantee this kind of account?

"surging middle class entitlements?" What about surging corporate welfare, I mean, entitlements?

Frickin' GOPers are all the same.
