So you DON'T know the only two requests made by Republicans to avoid the shutdown?
Here they are:
1. Congress abide by the same law as everyone else.
2. Individuals be treated the same as corporations.
You DID know this, right?
And that Democrats refused to talk about these two requests which led them to shutdown the government before doing so?
Oh, I thought you meant what change the Republicans actually managed to make to the ACA.

House demands went something like this:

1. Repeal the Affordable Care Act
2. Defund the Affordable Care Act
3. Delay the individual mandate
4. Repeal Medical Device Tax
5. Fix the glitch that would eliminated the Federal health insurance subsidy for lawmakers and their staff.

Do recall the uproar over the e-mails that were released showing Boehner working with Democrats to fix #5?

What shutdown the government was Republicans balking at the very deal they ended up accepting. Idiots.

It's about the money__R&B artists mostly didn't own the music and basically worked for wages__funk brought owner credits to the likes of Rick James__but the early rap artists owned it all and even better it was a pretty simple deal.

Of course the rap scene turned into rock and roll redux with the entry of the shady promoters__but many rappers avoided those cats and made a fkn ton of money.

Medicaid is a dangerous government welfare program
The worst part about this expensive expansion of Medicaid is that according to multiple studies completed by Johns Hopkins, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, Columbia-Cornell, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Pittsburgh, the American Academy of Cardiology and the New England Journal of Medicine, Medicaid patients in bankrupt states like Illinois & California wait twice as long to see a doctor or specialist as those with private health insurance. And, often times they are denied the care they need.
And, Medicaid surgical patients have far worse health outcomes than those with private insurance. In fact, in the largest study of itís kind (with nearly 1,000,000 participants) the University of Virginia found that Medicaid surgical patients are 97% more like to DIE than surgical patients with private health insurance.


Flack duped once again.

"They noted that Medicaid recipients are the poorest, sickest and least educated group of patients. They are the least likely group to seek preventive health care. As a result, they are more likely to enter hospitals in dire conditions that require emergency surgery.

"Medicaid patients had the highest incidence of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, depression, liver disease, neurologic disorders and psychoses," the study said. "Furthermore, Medicaid patients had the highest incidence of metastatic cancer."

"The researchers said that uninsured patients have similar characteristics to Medicaid recipients and that it is "plausible" that both groups may suffer from a "system bias" that limits their access to private hospitals and top physicians."

"For many surgical patients, private insurance status often allows for referral to expert surgeons for their disease," the study said. "Alternatively, Medicaid and uninsured patients may have been referred to less skilled and less specialized surgeons."

Medicaid is not the problem.

"The Obama administrationís $3.2 billion annual military aid has been suspended due to the U.S. government shutdown over the debt ceiling. The sum for 2104 was to be transferred to Israel on October 1, but this is not the first time budget crises in the United States have delayed aid to Israel."

Drat, where's the Teapots when you need them. Talk about a spending problem.

You honestly don't know what you're talking about! It was'nt till the early 90s when the first artist came out under his own label ,Jay-z being that artist. Queen Latifah actually did it first but, she wasn't nearly as successful because her music wasn't either. Rappers were getting shit like 10cent on the dollar for albums sold before that era. Rappers get most of their money from tour shows &, joint business ventures in other fields. I don't know where you're getting your info but, you're way off base.

The IRS is not "implementing" the law. They will merely be verifying informing people of the new law.
IF you know the number of IRS agents that will hired, let's see your link. I'm guessing it is from a conservative website.
Hint: "The claim of 16,500 new agents stems from a partisan analysis based on guesswork and false assumptions, and compounded by outright misrepresentation."
Ron Paul: "16,500 ARMED bureaucrats coming to make this program work."
"IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman testified before a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee March 25 that the IRS wonít be auditing individuals to certify that they have obtained health insurance. He said insurance companies will issue forms certifying that individuals have coverage that meets the federal mandate, similar to a form that lenders use to verify the amount of interest someone has paid on their home mortgage. "We expect to get a simple form, that we wonít look behind, that says this person has acceptable health coverage," Shulman said. "So thereís not going to be any discussions about health coverage with an IRS employee."
http://www.factcheck.org/2010/03/irs-expansio...
BS, They absolutely will auditing the health coverage aspect, otherwise they wouldn't put it under the IRS juristicion. No wonder you vote Demorat, you know no better?? Whata Country.

Just because you are too stupid to know how to read a pay stub doesn't mean everyone is that dumb.
