Another thing....
If you want to give a post like this credibility, you have to tell everyone what the profit margin Exxon works with is. Then, so everyone will have a point of reference, compare that profit margin with other companies in other industries, like Microsoft, for example.
As your post is now, it doesn't say a goddam thing. It's just ignorant ranting to an ignorant readership.
Problem is with Microsoft it is a choice any consumer can make to buy or not to buy. On the other side is big oil that 99% of all Americans must use. Yours is the ONLY consumer good that must be used by everyone but has no Federal regulation of its pricing. Any utility in America is under pricing regulations. The lack of regulation is the reason America pays for Exxon to make $49 Billion in profit while they are shipping America's oil and LNG to China. The cost of oil companies making the most profit of any company ever in world history has been paid for with the hard earned money of the lower and middle class worker. You know, all the people that you so fondly look down upon.

So you spoke to the retired janitor that used to clean the top floor of the local hospital.

CRANSTON, R.I.-
Terence McAuliffe, the former chairman of the national Democratic Party and current Virginia gubernatorial candidate, was one of hundreds of people who invested in variable annuities that used terminally ill patients as the annuitants.
McAuliffe and others became owners of the investment instruments through Cranston estate planner Joseph Caramadre. Caramadre pleaded guilty to stealing the identities of terminally ill patients and using that information to falsely apply for annuities and bonds with death puts.
Prosecutors said Caramadre cost insurance companies between $37 million and $48 million from the scheme.
Caramadre, with the help of a partner, would use personal information from terminally ill patients on investment applications that contained death benefits. The actual owners of the annuity would be Caramadre or hundreds of investors. In exchange for the personal information, Caramadre often times would help the families of the terminally ill to pay for funeral expenses.
Besides McAuliffe, Robert Flanders, a former justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court, is on the investment list. Gaythorne "Poochie" Angell, a long-time bookie and mob associate, was also an investor, along with Monsignor Raymond Bastia, who handles financial planning for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence.
There is no evidence that the investors knew that Caramadre was stealing the identities of the terminally ill patients.
Caramadre's use of unrelated owners of the annuities was legal.
Caramadre and his partner have pleaded guilty to the investment scheme. Prosecutors said Caramadre made millions.
Caramadre is being held at the Wyatt Detention Center and has yet to be sentenced.
If it's legal, why was he arrested?

"But from the perspective of a very small employer, it may become easier to compete for talent against larger enterprises (which would be able to offer much better insurance options to employees at better prices anyway). These subsidies often come in the form of tax credits, which any profit-making business can utilize immediately. If the business does not operate at a profit, the credit can be carried forward to future years—not helpful for today’s cash flow, but valuable in the future."

Note the the sentence: "These subsidies often come in the form of tax credits"

Now, don't you really feel stupid. Your heroes at Fox calling you a f*cking moron. Yep, that's gotta hurt.

What about the responsibility of the children and/or their parents to go to the police at the time the crimes occurred? The long delays often make prosecution very difficult.
Too often the parents will side with the priest and not with their own children.....
Not sure where you are going with this post. Trying to blame the parents and children? FYI, kids don't report abuse to their parents...or at least they didn't. Hopefully, times are changing.

"The federal government's strategy for making health coverage affordable next year for middle-income Americans largely depends on a new federal tax credit.

Health care experts prefer to describe it as a subsidy or discount on health insurance premiums."

Your problem that you are too stupid to think that providing financial,support means giving money and not including instruments such as tax breaks.

Once You Create An Obamacare Account You Can’t Delete It
ONCE YOU GET INTO OBAMACARE, YOU’RE STUCK — It’s not clear how customers can delete their Healthcare.gov account if they choose — at least the way the website is set up right now.
During a test run, we used the customer support chat to request that an account be removed and were told that our request must be referred to an “advanced” customer service system. Whatever that is.
And you can’t get around setting up an account — it’s the only way to browse health plan options

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer said the White House should take Republicans’ suggestion and delay Obamacare due to the poor performance of the websites that are facilitating it.“If they weren’t fully ready, they should accept the advice that a lot of Republicans are giving them — delay it another year, get it ready, and make sure it works,” Blitzer said Wednesday.
“They know how to do it, but if they didn’t get it ready on time, then maybe fix the problem and make sure people don’t have to worry about it,” he added.
Look for Blitzer to be fired soon...
Delaying it a year just puts off the inevitable...glitches in the system. Might as work them out now rather than later. Don't worry about it. It will all work out.
