You EARN what you WORK for.

Why would ANYONE expect someone to PAY for time they were not at work, working?

Unless of course--your dealing with the ignorance of the entitleMENTALLY warped and twisted crowds.

gasoline prices are affected primarily by supply and demand....and when California requires exotic blends and prevent refinery construction, supply is artificially limited by the government, driving up prices....
Hussein Obama's EPA will not allow pipelines or refinery construction in the US....so gasoline prices will inevitably rise.....
Just like peoples health insurance and taxes!
BOO!
O gotta go!

Really, what freedom are you losing?
The freedom of choice. Romney/Ryan offers us a choice in our own health care plan and schools for our children.

Obama/Biden would rather micromanage our health care and force parents to keep their children in failed schools.

That's just one.

I am not losing any yet-we have a chance to get rid of O'bama and get rid of O'bamacare. I am going to bet that the majority of American people are smarter than you. Western medicine takes away freedom from all people. We are the most medicated country in the World. Now what do you think is going to happen when the medication for the masses kicks in?

You answer some questions first: Who was in control of Congress for two years prior to Bush's last year in office? Who balked the most about government oversight when it came to the impending disaster of the housing market collapse? Who could have stopped the bleeding sooner but chose to force a massive piece of social legislation down the public's throat instead resulting in a prolonged anemic economic recovery? Who is strangling businesses and preventing job growth with the unknowns of increased taxes and the cost of Obamacare?
Obama didn't want to let a serious crisis go to waste. Remember?
You've been out in the California sun too long.
How are businesses being strangled exactly? They are enjoying tax cuts that I thought were there so they could create jobs. They've not used the tax cuts as they were intended, to reinvest and hire. Isn't that what your party has been screaming about. More tax cuts so that business can reinvest and hire? Why haven't they done it.

You can recite Obamacare all you want, but the fact is, it hasn't costed employers anything and has done nothing but help Americans. Americans can no longer be denied coverage. Maybe that doesn't mean anything to you, but if someone has a child who is gravely ill, it does. If someone changes jobs it does. Americans can now insure their college age children. Maybe that doesn't mean anything to you, but to someone who has college age children it does. Our company and all of it's employees recently recieved a reimbursement check for our insurance companies because we paid more to them then our premiums costed and the Administrative fees were set too high. So now insurance companies can no longer drive up premiums if the money isn't going to actual healthcare. How horrible!

GFY.
We have a graduated income tax. We all pay from the same chart. I already have some of my income taxed at a higher rate than most people.
I don't constantly whine about it like you.
You are the typical right whiner, My God we can't tax the wealthy more but we need to tax the poor & lower middle class more.
But hey. lets dump the IRS because we all know everyone will just send in the correct tax money. No one would ever cheat.
Then why are you constantly looking to whine over anyone elses-esepcially Romneys--which is REALLY-NONE of your business!

Talk about HYPOCRICY.. of IGNORANCE and GREED (let alone COVETING) in action...

(wah...it's not fair-everybody shuld beez rich.)--ummm GROW UP and get a real world clue!
