So you think it's fair that people who are against abortion and are not registered democrats must fund abortions with their own tax dollars and pay union fees?
What happened to attacks on individual liberty?
The republican tent is morphing to include independents and libertarians. Rand Paul is a good example of how it is changing.
I think if I have to pay for your medicare hip replacement that you should pay for someone's abortion. After all, the person you provide the abortion for is likely to be more productive than your retired asss, especially if not saddled with an unwanted child.

Yep, a dying art.
You would never be able to be a medical transcriptionist.

A person making $50,000 would pay a $400 penalty while a couple earning that amount would each pay $300.

Young healthy males between 21 and 29 will pay an expected premium increase of 56%. Males between 30 and 39 a 49% increase.

I paid for your grandmother's and your children and their children will pay for yours. That's how Democrats wanted it to be.

Of course, it won't be around long enough for someone to pay for yours.

You voted for the guy who didn't think it needed to be reformed so it would.

Putin looks like he doesn't pay attention to O'bama--he has the same look most of us have when O'bama speaks-blah blah blah blah blah blah. I am no one, other than you, O'bama butt kissing, liberals believe anything O'bama says.

Rupert Murdoch Fears That Bribery/Hacking Investigation Could “Kill The Corporation”

The Independent is reporting that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp is under investigation as a “corporate suspect” over the charges that the company engaged in unlawful activities including bribery and hacking the phones, email, and computers of hundreds of politicians, celebrities and private citizens, including a missing schoolgirl who later turned up dead. The inquiry could have significant consequences for News Corp around the world including here in the U.S.

“The Independent has learnt the Metropolitan Police has opened an “active investigation” into the corporate liabilities of the UK newspaper group – recently rebranded News UK – which could have serious implications for the ability of its parent company News Corp to operate in the United States.”

That is not merely the opinion of the investigators and/or reporters. News Corp responded to the inquiry with an apocalyptic warning suggesting that thousands of innocents would suffer if the company were held responsible for its criminal behavior.

“A News Corp analysis of the effects of a corporate charge, produced in New York, said the consequences could ‘kill the corporation and 46,000 jobs would be in jeopardy’.

“Lawyers for the media behemoth have pleaded with the Met[tropolitan Police] and the Crown Prosecution Service not to prosecute the company as it would not be in the ‘public interest’ to put thousands of jobs at risk.”

This attempt to turn employees into human shields notwithstanding, it would be unconscionable for the legal authorities to dismiss crimes because of potential adverse business results asserted by the criminal. That’s kind of like a bank president found guilty of embezzlement asking that his charges be dropped because the bad publicity might hurt the bank.

What’s more, there need not be a single job placed in jeopardy if the corporate offenders were brought to justice, removed from the company, and a properly instituted board of directors (e.g. one not beholden to the Murdoch regime) reformed the management and operations of the enterprise.

News Corp is, and has been, a criminal organization for many years. They are unapologetic about their abuse of the law and the public trust. It is encouraging that the British legal system is pursuing these charges, although in the past they have caved in to pressure from powerful business interests and retreated from doing the right thing. Time will tell if they have the integrity and fortitude to follow through on this matter.

Unlike GM, Toyota produces a quality product at a value price.

A rational person would think Detroit would learn by example, but they seem incapable of doing so.

I voted for the guy who would have gradually phased out all these unsustainable programs. Or, at least pushed to start the process.

They can be phased out.
