Did we need to fund this with American tax dollars?

It's affordable, all right. Affordable for those that won't pay a goddam dime for it.

Perhaps you missed it when your Congressman warned you about the national sales tax beginning on the first of the year before the election. Come to think of it, I don't recall any member of Congress warning anyone about the national sales tax beginning on the first of the year.

YOu will now commence paying the first of the several Obama taxes.

Look on the next receipt you get from, oh, say Walmart for a line item titled "Medical excise tax".
That's the national Obama sales tax.

Next, let's look at the deal between the Democrats and RINOs that increase the deductions and exemptions that allow that 47 percent of the population to continue mooching off the other half of the population. I'm betting the increased deductions and exemptions actually increased that 47 percent.
Perhaps we will have for the first time ever a situation where fully half the population is moochers.
Well, just who is supposed to make the economy work when half the population is f**k*ng moochers?

Both sides in Washington are good at playing loose with others money , we the people should run em all out with pitch forks and torches , tar and feathers for every one of em , public humiliation would do wonders for these ass clowns , we need to get rid of career politicians completely , serving in govt. should be an honor not a license to rape , pillage and plunder the American people without obstruction .

I get it. It was OK for Bush & Clinton & Bush Sr & Reagan to get their money from these places but not Obama?
Why do you think they are different sources??
Why are you having this freakin fit about Obama funding when you were obviously OK with the sources for the Bush funding
I understand you have a severe problem reading and comprehending the English language. Let me help you rectify this problem. If you need to read the post multiple times to understand that you have to actually identify the source for the money, please do so. Here's the post again:

To answer this question, you have to tell us where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government, dufus.

What little research I just did says people are seeing a net decrease in fuel bills. Of course most of those people said they charge their at work so they are stealing from their employer to lower their bill. Typical libtards!!!

notice the talk about cutting entitlements has so far been limited to those who actually paid into social security having their increases recalculated. how about instead we go back to not allowing mood swings as a reason to collect thousands a month in SS Disability for the rest of your life? or if you your knee hurts and you can no longer climb a ladder, you retrain and get a desk job? the irony of it all is my company has held job fairs for people with disabilities--blind people, people w/MS--you name it and these people once hired struggle to get to work every day and contribute to society.
while others are encouraged by the system to freeload because they're too fat to get behind the wheel of their cars and drive to work to sit at a desk.

too many who have worked briefly or never worked at all, collect lifetime support beginning at a young age.
