So, you equate an able bodied person who could work with a disabled senior citizen?
PS -read your posts. You attempted to claim that Medicare was paid into the general fund. We all realized at that point that you did not know there was a Medicare Tax just like there was a Social Security Tax
I never said any of this. You right whiners called the 47% moochers. That did included disabled older people,.

I am just making fun of people like you & Eed. You call everyone on a government program or not paying federal income tax moochers.

I never said Medicare was paid into the general fund. You just made that up.

I said Medicare taxes that you p[ay are not put into some kind of personal fund like SS.

I acknowledged the Medicare tax numerous times.

Look, you lost this argument long ago. Quit making up sh*t.

We pay taxes to pay for the medicare program. It is not like social security where you basically pay into your account.
I make find of moocher Eed because Eed has been calling everyone on a government program a moocher just like thosein the 47%.
Then we find out old Eed is a moocher himself.
I can't help myself. It is too funny.
'not like social security where you basically pay into your account'? Every time I think you have hit a new high in stupid you manage to climb another rung. There is no account. Never was. Never will be. It's a tax just like Obamacare will be.

The amount received through Social Security is not limited to the amount you paid in. Try real hard to understand this.

It determines your monthly benefit. M O N T H L Y B E N E f I T. Like I said.

The difference is obvious. Those who earn more money are subsidizing medical care for those who do not.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Today Speaker of the House John Boehner issued the following letter to the American people:
Dear American People,
Yesterday, your hardworking House Republicans tried, once again, and failed, once again, to repeal Obamacare. And I really thought we had a good chance this time.
That’s because we were all united in our hatred for this infernal and takes-too-long-to-read law. Every last one of us cast his vote to strike it down, from crazy little Paul Ryan to that arrogant bastard Eric Cantor.
And I wish you could have seen the faces of those freshman Republicans as they voted to repeal Obamacare—so innocent, so full of hope and wonder. As I told them yesterday,“You’ll never forget your first time.”
It’s important for you to know that even as scandals swirl about the cesspool known as the White House, some folks in Washington are still working hard for the American people.
It was a gruelling week for me, what with popping up in front of the TV cameras every five minutes saying,“Who’s going to jail?,” plus trying to rid our land of Obamacare. But I don’t want your thanks. Save that for the dedicated House Republicans who have now voted thirty-seven times to repeal. You can’t put a price tag on that kind of performance. Well, actually, you can: it’s cost the taxpayers over fifty million dollars.
And worth every million, damn it.
One last thing. I know some of you are probably thinking that after suffering this latest defeat, we House Republicans are just going to take our bat and ball and go home. Well, there’s an old saying where I come from: the thirty-eighth time’s the charm.
Courage,
John Boehner
John Boehner is getting ready to boot crackpot Michelle Bachmann off the Intelligence Committee. Even for John 'Boner' Boehner ,'intelligence' and Michelle Bachmann is too far a oxymoron stretch for anyone's imagination

The law says "exclusive" purpose is social welfare. The IRS unilaterally changed the interpretation of the law to be "primary" purpose is social welfare. That in no way lets Rove off the hook, he's guilty of tax fraud and should go to jail.

The type of tax exempt status these groups were seeking are for groups that advocate for social issues. Not political.
They can do political activities but this cannot be their major endeavor.
The Red Cross advocates for their health services , they do not endorse candidates (as far as I know), and no one ran for office on the Red Cross ticket.
The AARP advocates for older people. They push issues that effect older people.
AARP is the largest and most political leftwing organization in the world.

AARP pushed for Obamacare because of profit motives for their scam insurance subsidiaries.

Thanks. So your whine that people were using more Medicare than they paid into Medicare Tax was unfounded?
