gee, did you ever stop to think that just maybe there are millions of Americans out there who want a job but there are none available.

companies are sitting on the largest cash reserves in decades, demand for consumer goods are up, but they just aren't hiring. Those with jobs are asked to increase productivity and work overtime...

meanwhile salaries for CEO's, Execs and board members are at all time highs. Some CEO's are making upward of 500X what their average worker makes......while the buying power income for the middle class hasn't stagnated for the last 30 years, its actually gone down

really???
then please explain the
BILLIONS in farm subsidies
BILLIONS in oil subsidies
the military industrial complex
sole source, NO BID contracts to Haliburton during the Iraq fiasco
Federal lands given to the mining and gas industry with little or no compensation
Not to mention that if you look at tax dollars going into the Federal gov't vs being paid out, it is always the red states that get more Federal dollars than they paid in, while blue states like NY, Ca., Ill. always get less Federal dollars back than they paid in.
Face it conservatives are the biggest welfare mothers there are, they just say otherwise. Masters of Orwellian speak
Are they Americans? These people aren't--bitch up a storm now-I will wait: Other locations on the IGís Top Ten list for singular addresses that were theoretically used simultaneously by thousands of unauthorized alien workers, included an address in Oxnard, Calif, where the IRS sent 2,507 refunds worth $10,395,874; an address in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the IRS sent 2,408 refunds worth $7,284,212; an address in Phoenix, Ariz., where the IRS sent 2,047 refunds worth $5,558,608; an address in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where the IRS sent 1,972 refunds worth $2,256,302; an address in San Jose, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,942 refunds worth $5,091,027; and an address in Arvin, Calif., where the IRS sent 1,846 refunds worth $3,298,877. http://cnsnews.com/news/article/irs-sent-4637...

You people are sooooo stupid. Yes, UNCLE SAM will be paying the premiums which will be far less than the staggering cost of the Emergency Room visits previously utilized by "poor folks" without insurance.

"Itís a lose, lose, lose," said Sonal Ambegaokar, a health policy lawyer at the National Immigration Law Center, which advocates for low-income immigrants. She said denying broad insurance coverage to LEGAL immigrants hurt doctors and hospitals financially, prevented patients from getting needed care and increased costs for the health system."

How will the IRS collect taxes (not fines) from those who don't pay taxes and have no refunds, or insufficient refunds, from which to collect the Obamacare tax?
That's where the quarter of a trillion dollars worth of fraud comes in. They will be getting a check for subsidiaries and still won't buy health care. But they will be having a hell of a party--another redistribution by the commie O'bama.

Good description of the Obama economy, where employees are a liability and the government has created an incentive to produce more output from fewer employees.

The taxpayers will not be paying the premiums if the workers are offered insurance by their employers, even if they cannot afford the premiums. The workers must pay either the premiums or the Obamacare tax.

Obama spending $100-Million US taxpayer dollars for ĎSymbolismĒ on African trip

Barack Obamaís upcoming $100-million African trip will take a virtual entourage to Johannesburg, the same place where thirsty children lined up at the regionís only water spigot as United Nations delegates gorged themselves on steak and lobster, washed down by fine wines at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development...

Other than getting robbed by the IRS, the lives of Republicans are little affected by politics. We don't depend on the government for much of anything.
Given that taxes are the primary issue, what is the point of big-government Republicans?

I just pointed out that most conservatives benefit the most from tax dollars spent on
FARM SUBSIDIES
OIL SUBSIDIES
THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Have trouble connecting the dots.

conservative states also get more in tax dollars than they put in, while liberal states get less.

conservatives are the real welfare queens in America

41 billion was the unpaid cost of emergency room visits last year. How much is O'bama sick care going to cost the country-and still the illegals will be using the emergency rooms. Remember the hospitals get ten times as much in tax breaks than they give in charity.
http://www.ahanews.com/ahanews/jsp/display.js...

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has raised its initial 10 year costs estimates from $940 billion to $1.76 trillion. Since the government has no money of its own, it must take close to a trillion dollars more from tax payers in order to afford the first 10 years of Obamacare. Every year after 2021, Obamacare will cost more than a quarter trillion dollars based on today's estimates. These numbers will only get worse in time because moral hazard will necessarily cause the amount of claims to rise relative to the cost. For example, how much music do you download on bitTorrent (free) vs. iTunes ($1.00/song)?

I 'assume' liberals can do math?

Galt hires an independent contractor (not an employee) to do minor improvements or landscaping at his home and/or business, paying the independent contractor in cash. The independent contractor fails to report this income and pay taxes.
