<quoted text>No co-pays for government-funded abortions, contraceptives or "gender reassignment surgery". In Mullah Obama's world, free means free!
There are no government funded abortions. I'm sure your surgery was likely covered under your insurance policy.

Your contraception is covered as part of the insurance policy you buy. As well are abortions if you CHOOSE to have one.

YOU are an idiot.
In Mullah Obama's world, "qualified" individuals'(ghetto-rats, welfare mammies, etc.) premiums would be subsidized by the government, so it will be free. YOU are a gullible idiot!

<quoted text>Are you 12?!? Co-pay is the amount that isn't paid for by insurance. Example: A prescription costs $50. Insurance pays $40. Your co-pay is $10. If the co-pay is eliminated, insurance pays the entire $50. You pay nothing, therefore it IS free. G'dam, you're stupid!
I get it.

There are many other countries in which these rights are not recognized. If the rest of your countrymen having them bothers you, find another country. America will not divest itself of our rights, to make you feel better.

Abortions are indeed government funded to uninsured low income individuals through Medicaid. Being male, I will never need an abortion or contraceptives so why should my premiums include coverage for them?

OK. A Link. Now what?
BTW, Richard Kimball, the vote smart guy, lost to John McCain way back when and he didn't like it one bit. He's been a sore loser ever since. So, in revenge, he started vote smart. The Tuscon Gazette wrote that Kimball suffers from terminal weirdness.
Must be related to you somehow.
Look up a vote. If you don't believe that sight, go to the Congressional website & look up the bill & see how Ryan voted on it.

The truth here is that you don't know how Paul Ryan voted under Bush.

If you did, you would not have wanted to give him a promotion to VP.

Mine is a brick oven, and we burn cherry wood, mostly. Some walnut. I bake pizza at roughly 500 - 600 degrees. I've got a decent-sized kitchen, but it's not huge or anything.
If you're interested, there's a company in California which makes really cool ones for home use, and they're not all that big.

Also, if you have a barbecue grill, you can make great pizza in that, with no additional investment. The learning curve is pretty fast, if you're willing to burn a couple frozen ones before you get it right...thaw them and oil the crust first, though. You just have to watch it closely.
Delicious.

Here are White House statements concerning Benghazi.
They do not rule out a planned attack but rather say that there no proof yet to state it.
The intel community put out the talking points on this.
How many times do you f*cking bozos want to embarrass yourselves.
When is the 'real proof' going to come out, Davey Boie? After Barack Hussein Obama and low level Susan Rice are impeached and convicted for lying? Yes Yeahoo, she lied with a straight face.. How long has it been? About 20 news cycles? Still nothing...They are hoping like hell the MSM won't mention it, and cover their collective behinds?? Whata Country....

WHAT A SURPRISE BO is a lying SOS:
Obama's claim that the Bush tax cuts helped cause the economic ...
www.washingtonpost.com/.../fact...bush-tax-cu ......
Oct 1, 2012 – FACT CHECKER | It's time for Obama to retire the talking point that Bush tax cuts and deregulation caused the 2008 economic crisis.
"The Facts
We should stipulate at the outset that Romney adamantly rejects the idea that he has proposed more tax cuts for the wealthy. His plan would cut tax rates, but also eliminate tax deductions, which he says would make the plan revenue neutral. But no one has proven that his numbers add up, and the respected nonpartisan Tax Policy Center concluded that the available details on the Romney plan suggest taxes would decrease for the wealthy but rise for the middle class.
Romney has advocated repealing the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill. As for the role of deregulation in the crisis, there certainly has been news reporting showing that the Bush administration generally took a hands- off approach to regulating financial institutions.
But others would note the irony of Clinton citing the perils of deregulation under Bush because he also is culpable. Clinton signed into law a repeal of the Glass-Steagall law that separated commercial and investment banks — a policy shift that some have said also played a role in the economic crisis. Moreover, Clinton also signed into law the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which essentially removed derivatives contracts from regulatory oversight. By many accounts, derivatives, such as the credit default swap, were at the heart of the financial crisis.
Indeed, Clinton has admitted that he was given wrong advice about the need to regulate derivatives contracts.“I think they were wrong, and I think I was wrong to take” their advice, Clinton said of his economic advisers.
The Dodd-Frank bill tightened regulations on derivatives contracts, thus reversing the decision that Clinton — not Bush — had made.
While one can argue whether deregulation under Clinton or Bush played a bigger role in the financial crisis, the notion that the Bush tax cuts “led” to the 2008 crisis is especially puzzling. "
Wise up, dummies.
in early 2001. the CBO predicted that by 2012 we would have amassed a 5.6 trillion surplus.

In going through as to what changed this, the Bush tax cuts were part of the Bush policies that claimed nearly 40% of the reason. Obama's policies claimed only 10%.

Unfunded tax cuts while expanding government & at a time of war was indeed a major factor.

I'll readily admit to total ignorance of how he constructed ours - but I'm happy to ask him about pitfalls he encountered in the process, and get back to you.

Did the quote you received include installation? Some friends of ours purchased one for about $750, and installed it themselves. Not sure from which company. I'll ask if you like.
