According to you, if Joe works at the bank, the bank pays his insurances, mortgage, food bill. For his clothes, electric, phone & everything else.
Why, Because he gets his money from the bank when he gets paid.
This is how GD stupid you are.
We know that when he gets paid, that money is his. He spends it as he wishes.
Just like any business when they get paid.

Is Massachusetts' health care reform a success or failure?
30 06 09 - 12:13

In poll, Mass. voters pan health reform
By State House News Service - Boston Herald

Only 26 percent of likely voters in Massachusetts believe health care reform has been a success and just 21 percent believe reform has made health care more affordable, according to newly released poll results.

The Rasmussen Reports poll of 500 likely Massachusetts voters, taken in April, also found only 10 percent said the quality of health care is getting better under the reform law rules here.

Most of those polled on April 16, 2009 said they weren’t sure whether reform was a success or failure (37 percent), that there’s been no change in health care affordability under reform (44 percent) and that health care quality is about the same (53 percent).

The poll was taken before talks stirred in Washington about a national health care reform push and before a wave of news in Massachusetts about difficulty affording the coverage expansions authorized under the 2006 reform law.

Obama's Department of Justice lawyers will sue North Carolina in Federal Court today. However, before they can challenge the law's strict photo ID provisions, they will have to produce their photo IDs to enter the Federal Courthouse.

Why are they not suing Federal Courts to challenge their strict photo ID procedures for admission?

Sure stupid, that's why we've had the first communication between the presidents of these two countries since 1979 and we have the best chance of resolving this issue that there's been in years.
Your implacable hatred of President Obama makes you completely unable to give him any credit for anything. Hatred makes people stupid Carol and you're a prime example of that.
You can make all of the hate filled and demeaning comments you want about the President Carol but the fact remains that he's the president and you're an ignorant nobody.

The Justice Department will file suit against North Carolina on Monday, charging that the Tar Heel State’s new law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls violates the Voting Rights Act by discriminating against African Americans, according to a person familiar with the planned litigation.

You know, Dumbass Ray, if you want to plead the case for voter photo ID, you should provide examples where a photo ID would have stopped that fraud.

In your examples, both would have occurred with the photo ID law.

You people are sofa king dumb.

The vast majority of Massachusetts residents are satisfied with their healthcare under the state's 2006 reform law, though costs and appointment wait times remain an issue, according to a new poll.

Eighty-four percent expressed satisfaction with their healthcare, citing the quality of the care or "good access," according to the Massachusetts Medical Society, a statewide physician group that conducted the poll.

Another three in four said accessing the healthcare they need is not difficult, though the share of patients who had to wait a month or more to see a primary care doctor was up 7 points since last year, to 28 percent.

The survey noted that the wait times were less of a problem for existing patients, or those that had seen a primary care doctor in the previous year, and for patients with serious conditions.

The Massachusetts healthcare reform law, or "RomneyCare," inspired ObamaCare. The two share several key components, including an individual mandate to provide insurance and a marketplace where the uninsured can purchase coverage.

Monday's poll sheds light on how Massachusetts residents have adjusted to the state's reform since it was passed in 2006.

The survey also suggested several areas that still need improvement in the state's healthcare system.

Perhaps you cannot define the term "radical" as understood in the English language.

As opposed to the current administration that remained ignorant because the shunned education and substituted indoctrination of Marxist communism and Saul Alinsky's tactics and strategies to eliminate capitalism and institute communism, and joining Al Qaeda and placing the Wahhabist Muslim Brotherhood in policy-making positions in the White House, and helping the Taliban retake control of Afghanistan, and helping the Al Qaeda invasion Syria and helping them in their war to take control of that country and acquire the chemical weapons there.

The radicals are in the White House. The rest of the country is comprised of normal Americans.

If you look at those who do not currently have a photo ID, a good proportion are poor. The poor is disproportionately Black (Democratic voters).

Republican leaders n PA admitted that the voter ID law favors Republicans.

The law may apply to all but t really only affects those without photo ID.

House Republican Hostage-Takers Are Unfit to Govern

They’re threatening an economic shutdown that will cause financial hardship and even ruin for millions of Americans.

Obama will not—he cannot—negotiate with a roving band of anarchists who say,“Build our oil pipeline or the troops don’t get paid. Give us tax cuts for the rich or seniors don’t get their Social Security checks.”

I spent a week in Madrid. The cafes offer seating outside on the sidewalk where one can sit and drink and smoke. Also, it is where the beggars can just walk right up to your table and make themselves at home, putting you in the position of being rude to make them get up out of the chair they just plopped their useless ass down in to insert themselves into your conversation and beg/coerce for money.
A young black American (23 years old) did just that. I had a conversation with him, which I told him he isn't a child and he needs to grow up and go to work. In the conversation, he asked me what I thought of Obama.
My answer:
"You are a 23 year-old man who won't work and are walking around Madrid begging for money. I think both of you are the same."
He didn't have much to say after that.
I didn't give him any money, although I am almost always very generous. But, I recognize the difference between being down on your luck, and being downright irresponsible and lazy.

You are just stupid.

That can be the only explanation.

Customers buy something. The money goes into my account. It becomes my money. If I don't pay my corporate taxes, I go to jail, not my customers.

Whn Joe Blow gets paid, his paycheck goes into his account. It becomes his.

If Corporations don't pay taxes then people don't pay taxes.

Its a simple concept.

Don't even try to pretend Obama is bipartisan or some kind of democratic ambassador when it's obvious he's neither.
His objective is to make republicans irrelevant. Period.
Congress makes law, not Obama, you dumbass. Republicans should "waste their time crafting legislation" because that's what we pay them to do, not pout about laws that already exist.
And, it was the conservative Heritage Foundation that created Obamacare, he listened to them.

Oh no! You really didn't just say that? "The law may apply to all but it really only affects those without photo ID". hahahahaha!!! Man, I would be pissed if I thought my party thought I was to stupid to get an photo ID if I wanted to vote. Well, wait a minute. They are to stupid to get a photo ID if they want to vote.

The debt-ceiling vote, of course, is not about future spending decisions. It is about whether to cover expenditures the Congress has already authorized. There is no sane reason for subjecting this to a repeated vote. And there is no precedent for serious threats not to honor federal debt -- as opposed to symbolic anti-Administration protest votes, which both parties have cast over the years. Nor for demanding the reversal of major legislation as a condition for routine government operations.

In case the point is not clear yet: there is no post-Civil War precedent for what the House GOP is doing now. It is radical, and dangerous for the economy and our process of government, and its departure from past political disagreements can't be buffed away or ignored.

"There's nothing to negotiate with. He shouldn't delay the health care bill. It's the law and we're opening the enrollment on October 1. We're ready," Clinton said on This Week. They're in better shape now than the country was to implement President Bush's drug program, which everybody's forgotten. Go back and look at the polls, even more unpopular than health care reform is now."

"So I think that's a non-starter," Clinton said.

SAWYER:

A couple of other questions about the agenda now. You have said next year that you would repeal the healthcare vote. That's still your mission?

BOEHNER:

Well, I think the election changes that. It's pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land.
