cost?

you know, the hidden cost Obama exposed that finally got added to the deficit. how many dead soldiers? how many dead civilians? and what did we actually do for Iraq? nothing. it's worse than it was before Saddam was in power.

so you can see why we won't be starting a war with Iran.

Now think about this since Republicans in Congress are trying to stop ACA what does that make them? Don't they have a duty to uphold the law? Aren't they in fact caretakers of our laws? Do they get to pick and choose which laws?
Please respond with serious answers only.
Republican members of Congress make up part of the Legislative Branch of our government. This is the branch that makes and amends and deals with all things legislative.

You should be embarrassed that someone has to explain this to you, boy. Of course, you're not because you are stuck in Progressive.

And then we have the Magic Negro who is part of the Executive Branch who legislates and fails to uphold laws and the Constitution but Progressives are dead quite about this.

So your answer is yes? That the tax break left you with more money than you would have had without it.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

A subsidy is a financial benefit given usually by the government to help an entity or group. Government subsidies is what was being discussed. If you would have kept up, you would have known this.

If you are going to hop in the middle of a conversation, either learn what is being discussed or STFU.

Homer sticking with the Oath to the Constitution
1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people.
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal.
"The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it."
4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state.
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence." (This means in any case of domestic violence, the President has no authority if the state's legislature can convene.)
5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." (For the federal government to have validity as the representative government of the United States, the 10th Amendment must be honored. Otherwise, there is no union to be held to.)
6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.
SELF EXPLANATORY.
7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.

8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control."
In fact, they will be foreign invaders and we will kill them if they threaten American citizens.
9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.
10.We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."
10. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Cornhusker Kickback. Louisiana Purchase.
ObamaKare isn't being executed by the President. Obama is rewriting it as it suits political convenience. By the way, the Constitution doesn't give the President the authority to rewrite any law.
Does Obama have a duty to uphold the law? Instead of upholding the law, he acts like he's some kind of dictator and rewrites it.

Now, here's your serious response. This is exactly how ObamaKare works:

Confused about ObamaKare?
Here's how it will work:

Insurance company: "I wrote n number of policies with X dollars worth of subsidies for reimbursement, which you said I don't have to send to you any accounting for the subsidies."
ObamaKare "the Secretary": "Ok. Here's a check for X dollars, which we may or may not audit in the future."

(in the future)

Insurance company: "I want to use some of the rationed health care assets to save someone's life."
ObamaKare "the Secretary": "Who is that person?"
Insurance company: "John Doe."
(ObamaKare "the Secretary" unconstitutionally and illegally acquires John Doe's personal information,just like Obama's government is doing right now as we speak.)
ObamaKare "the Secretary": "Follow the instructions of the Death Panel."
Insurance company: "John Doe needs a routine procedure to live. John Doe paid his insurance and this procedure is covered. John Doe needs a ration of health care approtioned."
ObamaKare "the Secretary": "We reviewed your account and we determined we overpaid you when you claimed X dollars subsidy reimbursement. Send the money to us immediately."

So, what's not to like about ObamaKare?

Congress passed a law that stated all people with geothermal HVAV get a 5% deduction of their income taxes.

I have a geothermal HVAC.

My tax bill would have been $15,000.00.

Now my tax bill is $14.250.00

I now have $750.00 more that I would have without the tax reduction.

How did I get that $750.00?

The Tax reduction.

i.e. the tax reduction gave me $750.00

No, I don't know. Tell us about the "hidden cost".
If you need a reference, here is a reputable record of actual spending by the government:

There are no "hidden cost" here. It's the actual total money the government spent.

So, tell us about that supposed "hidden cost" lie.

My paycheck is a financial benefit, you fucking moron. And, it is not a subsidy. It is money I earned.

The only oil company Obama is giving a subsidy to is Petrobras, the national oil company of Brasil. There is no such thing as a subsidy to any American oil company. Subsidies to American oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist.

Or, you can show us proof of any subsidy paid to any American oil company.
