<quoted text> You want an easy way to fix this damn tax problem? It won't cost one cent! Get rid of withholding. Make every taxpayer write the three or four checks every payday. Make them feel the pain! Ask somebody how much they make. The first words out of their mouth will be 'I bring home'. Most people can't even tell you what their gross pay is without looking.
Great idea, but the average American is completely unable to budget in that manner.

That's why they vote for the likes of Obama.

For years you blame our ills on the poor, the 47%.
Now you change it to blame the rich, who you've defended for years, and the ones who Bush bailed out with TARP.
You're too stupid to keep your arguments straight!!
<quoted text>
I pay taxes, I don't raise them, Obama did that.

That 47% doesn't represent the "poor", it represents the Obama Nation. It represents you and the rest of your party who compares your low effort incomes to that of the best and brightest. Being the low information drone that you are, you feel cheated.

OMG, I can't stop laughing. I think the fog is in your brain. BTW, I was listening to NPR yesterday about the cost of diabetes in this country,$70 billion. You think about that for a moment; and the biggest problem related to that is obesity.
So, while you and your compatriots whine and moan and groan about the size of sodas, twinkies and donuts; think about all the healthy people who are paying for those who stubbornly say, "if I want to be fat and drink a case of soda a day and a dozen twinkies"

The rest of your post is utter nonsense. No one is jealous of you making $15.00 a hour; trust me. The Democratic Party is not against success; we are against greed and abuse of the American people. But the fog in your brain caused by eating sugar can't comprehend that.

I hear this all the time from libs....tax loop holes for
sending jobs overseas.
My opinion...there is nothing that has done more to send jobs
overseas the this crazy progressive tax code and massive FED reg
and Unions.
All of these are liberal progressive ideas and concepts and not in
line with any true American conservative principles.

Cheap UAV's are not exactly what Rand Paul spent 13 hrs humming about. Speaking of humming did you check out the nifti little Humminigbird UAV?

You also linked an inexpensive 3D printer that would be a lot of fun for little kids to do crafting with. Matter of fact there was an accompanying piece about an autistic girl who has become social through using one.

The Orlando Police Department just purchased 2 drones equipped with video cams that can stay aloft for 11 minutes at up to 300 feet at a cost of $25,000 per. The use of such drones is already regulated by the FAA.

Never the less, you already know that some cop somewhere is going to fk up an airliner, helicopter or something else expensive with one of these things.

BTW the US hunter killer drones have payload capabilities of nearly a ton and currently cost in the neighborhood of $10 million each

Dumbass Dave has a point.

Insurance companies DO determine "what is covered and what is not."

All of this is spelled out up front, in writing, in the insurance contract. Medicare is exactly the same.

Any intelligent patient can read the contract and understand what is covered. Claims are generally turned down only because they are not covered by the policy.
