I have news. You do not pay into Medicare. Medicare is funded through taxation.
The difference?

I have news. Either way the money comes from "We the Taxpayers" and goes to "You the Democrats People".

So, you are admitting it is OK to use racial slurs under certain circumstances.
Your mental twin posts racial slurs & it is my problem for calling him out.
Wow.
I have a suggestion. Why not tell your buddies not to posts racial slurs and then I won't have to call them out for it.

You guys need to quit whining and squirming and grow some balls and own up to your dumbass shutdown. You got it, now live with it.

Ted Cruzy Boy if he don’t sound like a true republican. I didn’t do it, he did , she did, they did, the devil made me do it, etc., etc, Similar to some religious zealots that cry, its the USA devil that is causing this or that…
How are the Tea pirates doing? Not to good…
Statehouse to the nations capitol republicans are all a flutter. Calling out to their shepherds where forth dost thy lead us? That one small bloc of Ideoloques that has gone astray is now the tail that wags the republican dog. Exposing their total lack of leadership capabilities. LOL imagine such a scurvy crew of lost sheep running the nation? Oh wait, they did arrange for us to enjoy our 1929 and 2008 moments of greatness. No doubt they can do it one more time. After all third time is a charm.
Senator Roy Blunt,{R} Missouri the capital of republican red necks chides his fellow republicans; “Fighting with the president is one thing, Fighting with the president and losing is another thing. When you’re in the minority you need to look really hard to find the fights you can win.”
Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee“. This is a huge distraction, Instead of that being the conversation, we’re talking about the government shutdown, and the average citizen can’t help but say the Republican Congress isn’t helping.” DUH do you think?
Dave Reichert {R} Washington representative, Senate Republicans — Dan Coats of Indiana, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire — assailed Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who has led the movement to block funding for the health law. When asked just where and what is his strategy for leading the republicans into this fiasco, he replies yuk, yuk I have none.
Ms. Ayotte including Mr. Johnson, Mr. Coats and even Mitch McConnell, the minority leader — joined in the criticism of Mr. Cruz.
“It just started a lynch mob,” said a senator who was present.
Despite the uproar, Mr. Cruz did not offer a plan for how his party could prevail in the shutdown battle.
A voice in the republican wilderness can be heard, its wee little Johnny, turn the heard its headed for a cliff. The black hearted sheep have led them astray. Oh dear, oh dear what ever should we do?? The chasm will swallow them up..

Could it be republicans enjoy the shutdown? Longer the shut down the USA credit goes down> Interest Rates go up on the debt> greater cash flow to the coffers of the 1%. Excellent movie at a theater near you.

On Thursday, the government's official Obamacare Facebook page was riddled with people expressing sticker shock over the government's high cost premiums after struggling for hours to wade through the technical failures vexing Obamacare exchanges all across the country.

"I am so disappointed," wrote one woman. "These prices are outrageous and there are huge deductibles. No one can afford this!" The comment received 169 "likes."

"There is NO WAY I can afford it," said one commenter after using the Kaiser Subsidy Calculator. "Heck right now I couldn't afford an extra 10$[sic] a month...and oh apparently I make to [sic] much at 8.55/hour to get subsidies."

Another person shared a link found on the federal government's main Obamacare page listing premium estimates for small business employers:

The information is not very complete as I don't see anything about deductible or other detailed info, but it does given an actual price as to the "Premium." It is VERY SCARY!! For example, my insurance plan right now for my spouse and I costs $545 a month with 100% coverage after my $2500 deductible. We are both 32 years old. When I looked at this site for 80% coverage it says it will be $954.78 a month!!!! So compare my old Plan: 100% coverage for $545 a month To New Plan: 80% Coverage for $945 a month. This is only only an estimate but it is VERY Scary for me to see this kind of increase in rates and reduction in benefits!

A single mother of two said she is in school and working full-time while living "75% below the poverty level." She said she was shocked to learn she did not qualify for a healthcare subsidy. "Are you F'ing kidding me????" she wrote on the government's Obamacare Facebook page. "Where the HELL am I supposed to get $3,000 more a year to pay for this 'bronze' health insurance plan!?!??? And I DO NOT EVEN WANT INSURANCE to begin with!! This is frightening," she wrote.

Amid scores of comments expressing frustration with technical failures, one woman said she is "just amazed you could even get to the point of seeing pricing" and that she had been trying to access the system for three days to no avail.

Obamacare sticker shock will not affect millions of low-income Americans; a New York Times analysis published on Wednesday found that Obamacare "will leave out two-thirds of the poor blacks and single mothers and more than half of the low-wage workers who do not have insurance, the very kinds of people that the program was intended to help."

Obamacare will cost taxpayers an estimated $2.6 trillion over the next 10 years.

Grover Norquist nailed it when he said that Cruz shoved the Repubs in front of the bus and then walked away.

"Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward."

Liberals live backwards.


You do not read very well do you? Much less actually comprehend what little you read.
Noticed their disdain for liberalism. I’m liberal as you are not. So lets take a simple look at what I represent and what you represent.
Liberal adj
1. broad-minded: tolerant of different views and standards of behavior in others
2. progressive politically or socially: favoring gradual reform, especially political reforms that extend democracy, distribute wealth more evenly, and protect the personal freedom of the individual
3. generous: freely giving money, time, or some other asset
My great-aunt was liberal in her bequests.

4. generous in quantity: large in size or amount
a liberal helping

5. not literal: not limited to the literal meaning in translation or interpretation
a liberal interpretation of the rules

6. culturally oriented: concerned with general cultural matters and broadening of the mind rather than professional or technical study
a liberal education

7. of political liberalism: relating to a political ideology of liberalism

n (plural lib·er·als)
liberal person: somebody who favors tolerance or open-mindedness

[14th century. Via French < Latin liberalis < liber "free"]

Word Key: Synonyms

See generous.

Now to define your state of existence we just have to access the acronyms of these definitions. For example “Broad Minded” acronym “Closed Minded”
“ tolerant of different views and standards of behavior in others” acronym; Intolerant of the views of others and standards of behavior in others.
Sure sign of one who walks backwards. Paranoia sets in with the Right Wing Conservatives.

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.” Winston Churchill. LOL sounds like a liberal…

Several days before the federal government was partially closed, President Barack Obama announced he would not negotiate with Congress on the federal budget or the debt ceiling.
When specifically asked if he shouldn't consider offering at least some compromise - given that the GOP was willing to compromise with him - Obama said, "I shouldn't have to offer anything."
Yup, all the fault of the GOP.
Yup. All the fault on the gop....
