Well, I guess the number would be more like 100% wouldn't it? I mean, off-shore accounts and tax-breaks for oil companies, tax-free factory farms, Saudi investors, ranchers paying nothing to run cattle of Federal land, Japanese loggers cutting 600 year old Redwoods out of the National Forests on fire reduction permits, aren't all these things a form of welfare in the end? And when I say,'in the end,' I mean, of course, all the way up your anus til it gets to your lungs...
Sour grapes, if you had enough for accounts in the Caymans or offshore or wherever, you would be trying to hide it also. The Giverment taxes too much.
Please don't even try to pass yourself off as Carol from Orlando, you can't pull it off, and you're a thief and a cheat to boot..

This is a loophole Republicans refuse to close. It is a loophole that Obama wants to close.

Paul Ryan's new budget calls for making all foreign profit tax free.

I wonder where companies will build? Here & get taxed or overseas without taxes.

Maybe a real smart guy like you can figure it out.

GE is an Obama crony capitalist operation.

Florida is going to remain a Republican stronghold no matter who the governor is. Those in the know, like me, have been hearing rumblings about Scott being ousted by a far stronger and more experienced Republican named Adam Putnam.
Whatever happens, Florida will remain a huge state with all varieties of residents/citizens/voters and a mess of folks from other states/countries who both own and vacation here.
So who is the Socialist Democrat candidate?

Given that there is more demand for many of GE's products overseas than in the US, where would you suggest they locate their factories?

THE DREAM IS TURNING INTO COLD SWEATS lolololol Double Protest Against NAACP

Protesters will stage actions at the NAACP’s Washington bureau, on April 3, and at the civil rights organization’s national headquarters, in Baltimore, the next day, said Rev. Edward Pinkney, the former head of the NAACP in Benton Harbor, Michigan.“We have given the NAACP a free pass, just like we gave Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson – because they’re Black.” Pinkney wants the NAACP’s non-profit status revoked for acting as an annex of the Democratic Party.

WHOSE DREAM Obama Keeps Shopping for Grand Bargain

President Obama has tried to conclude his “grand bargain” with the GOP “over and over and over again,” said Kevin Zeese, co-director of It's Our Economy.“This is his fourth time. If you are going to raise more money, but not to meet people's needs, why are you doing it?” asked Zeese.“The bankers want it” to pay down the debt,“and that's what they'll get unless people stand up and say, No.”

THEY STILL CAN'T READ AND THEM DEMOCRATS BEEN RUNNING PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS lololololPublic Education Crisis

“There’s a destruction of public education taking place, whether it’s charter schools or corporate takeover of curriculum, all for the benefit of the wealthy, whose children do not attend public schools,” said Dr. Donald Smith, a founder of the National Alliance of Black School Educators.“Most Black educators, I’m sad to say, are at sleep at the wheel,” seemingly unaware of the crisis.

Even I could not imagine that it would get this bad” under Barack Obama, writes Cynthia McKinney, former Georgia congresswoman and Green Party presidential candidate. Abroad, the First Black President murders whole nations and peoples. At home,“Blacks are slipping back more and more into economic and cultural servitude and political irrelevancy,” with Black family wealth now pegged at $2,000 per household, compared to $94,600 for whites.



President Obama Gets His Groove Back By Attacking Africans

LOLOLOLOL HAHAHAHAHA President Obama promised "change" to the people who voted for him. He told them to hope again and that change would come. But President Obama's change is really more of the same. Therefore, his elixir that was sold to the world was nothing more than snake oil. The most damage, of course, is being done to those whose dreams were intricately woven into his words, not realizing that words are not policy. In a most deadly treachery, those who believed in our President the most are the ones who are now suffering and dying the most.

Some people, to this day, remain tricked by the salve of words for the wounds inflicted by our President. Others have begun to sink into despair while some search for answers. But our President is adept at giving us, in the words of the late, great Fred Hampton, Chicago's other son, "answers that don't answer, explanations that don't explain, and conclusions that don't conclude.THEY GO TO CHURCH TO SEARCH LOLOLOL HAHAHAHA

The individual amount limit is $3100.00.

People can save as much as they want but it wouldn't be a "health Savings Account" as in a fund to park tax free money.

The poster claimed he was putting $700 a month into a HSA.

dissent would be intolerable under an Obama Administration, enforced both from the Black political consensus and from the Democratic Party wingnuts--quashing dissent even with all of the attendant special interest burdens that come with any aspect of the Democratic Party.

I knew that the Muslim world was going to be in for a shockingly rude awakening, but even I could not conceive of the carnage this President could bring to that part of the world--either by a policy that encourages Muslims to kill other Muslims, or by the dropping of bombs and the use of depleted uranium on Muslim communities. But not only that, we are seeing the murder of whole countries and the communities and cultures that gave rise to them. The President's policies are dismantling and dismembering Pakistan and Afghanistan as we watch. The U.S. Embassy in Iraq announced plans to employ a total of 16,000 people, doubling its staff, within the next two years. The only antidote to these policies is unity and I hope that the residents of these countries are able to unite and resist in a much more effective way than have "antiwar" "liberal" communities inside the United States. Of course, some individuals stand out and are leading the resistance now and I can only hope that their voices are heard and multiplied among the masses, both here and around the world.

OBAMA MAN OF PEACE LOLOLOLHAHAHA MAN OF FRAUD lolololOBAMA
