Ok. Once again for the really stupid people in the class... Homer.
The Department of Treasury isn't a source of money. The Department of Treasury is a repository for money collected from a source of money.
If you are still confused, read the Constitution where it states how bills of revenue can be generated. Your answer requires that Congress pass legislation to tax the department of Treasury to put money into the Department of Treasury.
I know that makes sense to Democrats, but to any person who actually thinks, it is a ludicrous answer.
To answer the question, you have to identify a source of money sufficient to tax to pay for Obama's government.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
The same place as Bush.

Would you be talking about the war you overwhelmingly voted for after the Republicans gave you no oversight of your Marxist subprime loan program that collapsed our economy?

Charles Krauthammer: Chris Christie CPAC snub a mistake

I think this is a vast overreaction and its a mistake. Hes a leading Republican, hes obviously of presidential timber, hes got the highest popularity of any governor and hes in a blue state, Krauthammer said Tuesday night on Fox News.

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/02/charles...

I think its a mistake. I think theyre trying to define legitimate ideology fairly narrowly and they want to rule people out. Here we are with four years to go until the next election, we ought to keep the tent wide and open and let the people, Republicans decide,

The leader of the western world can't be 400 lbs. He is an example of everything that is bad about Americans; have you ever seen so many fat misshapen bodies anywhere in the world as you do here in the States? He's better as a governor.

<quoted text>Father, Bill McVeigh raises money for civic causes, bowls, runs bingo night at the Catholic church, gardens and golfs. Tim McVeigh's father is a registered Democrat and union man who on a recent afternoon sported a black nylon United Auto Workers windbreaker and baseball cap.

Yes. Timothy McVeigh and family are union and deranged democrats.
"Around this time he first read The Turner Diaries (1978), an antigovernment, neo-Nazi tract written by William Pierce. The book, which details the truck-bombing of the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), fueled McVeighs paranoia about a government plot to repeal the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees the right to keep and bear arms. Sound like anyone you know?

Besides, last I checked, Bill McVeigh didn't blow up the Federal Building, Tim did.

TRENTON, N.J. Get ready for betting in your jammies, at work, from the kitchen table, or at the beach: New Jerseyans and possibly many others will soon be able to gamble over the Internet.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a bill Tuesday legalizing Internet gambling, hours after the state legislature passed a revised bill that made the changes he wanted. They included setting a 10-year trial period for online betting, and raising the taxes on the Atlantic City casinos' online winnings from 10 to 15 percent.

This was a critical decision, and one that I did not make lightly," Christie said. "But with the proper regulatory framework and safeguards that I insisted on including in the bill, I am confident that we are offering a responsible yet exciting option that will make Atlantic City more competitive while also bringing financial benefits to New Jersey as a whole."

The idea is to help the struggling casinos by attracting new gamblers who are not now visiting the casinos. The comps, like free hotel rooms, show tickets, meals or other freebies, would be accrued from online play, but would have to be redeemed in person at a casino, presumably enticing a player to spend more money while there.

Rick Scotts family were welfare recipients when he was a child; his brother is on welfare in Texas and Rick Scott committed the single largest act of Medicare fraud in the history of this country. He should be in prison.
A man who ran mental health clinics here and committed Medicare fraud just got sentenced to 14 years in prison, for probably a third of what Rick Scott stole. Go figure.
He probably has his eye on that money, he still owns free standing clinics here called Sonicare.
And yet, he beat Alex Sink, the Democratic savior. LOL
