You two really don't realize how stupid you sound. A person may not have a car. They may not have a house. But, they have a body that requires maintenance and, for that, they are required BY LAW to carry health insurance.
Maintenance? ROTFLMAO--if you maintained your body you would never have to go to the doctor. No we are not required by law to carry health insurance. We can pay a fine--and if one is smart you can get your deductibles in line and the IRS cannot take anything.

It's apparent you don't like studies. But here's another one anyway.

How Poor Are America's Poor? Examining the "Plague" of Poverty in America

Robert Rector and Kirk A. Johnson, Ph.D.

"In good economic times or bad, the typical poor family with children is supported by only 800 hours of work during a year: That amounts to 16 hours of work per week. If work in each family were raised to 2,000 hours per year the equivalent of one adult working 40 hours per week throughout the year nearly 75 percent of poor children would be lifted out of official poverty.

"Father absence is another major cause of child poverty. Nearly two-thirds of poor children reside in single parent homes; each year, an additional 1.3 million children are born out of wedlock. If poor mothers married the fathers of their children, almost three-quarters would immediately be lifted out of poverty.

"But if poverty means lacking nutritious food, adequate warm housing, and clothing for a family, relatively few of the 35 million people identified as being 'in poverty' by the Census Bureau could be characterized as poor. While material hardship does exist in the United States, it is quite restricted in scope and severity. The average 'poor' person, as defined by the government, has a living standard far higher than the public imagines."

many people who previously had "free" medical care because they were unable to pay will now have "insurance" that has huge deductibles and copays...
...why would anybody believe they will be able to make those payments???...
arguably they are worse off with so-called "insurance"
liberals and democrats don't think they will pay their bills either, they would sooner let these people die in the streets, IMO that was the liberal plan all along, get rid of what they deemed as dead weight. Eugenics aka O'bamacare.

You have never been able to comprehend anything. Go back and re-read my post. It only pertains to those who do NOT carry health insurance. Those responsible adults who find themselves filing bankruptcy based on medical issues despite the fact they have health insurance will still be able to discharge those expenses in bankruptcy.
translation: only people who follow USA's rules can file for bankruptcy.

The increase in the purchasing and use of drones is expanding the military.
Not to mention dangerous in using them to patrol the us.
Adding more drones instead of spending on other equipments to do the same job is not expanding the military.

So what does this have to do with Beghazi again???

And where are we using military weaponized drones domestically?

What is the difference between patrolling in a helicopter and patrolling with a drone?

"Patricians"

"Ranked just below the emperor and his relatives, the patrician families dominated Rome and its empire. The word “patrician” comes from the Latin “patres”, meaning “fathers”, and these families provided the empire’s political, religious, and military leadership"

Most patricians were wealthy landowners from old families, but the class was open to a chosen few who had been deliberately promoted by the emperor."

then we have this:
"Federal employees owe $3.5 billion in unpaid taxes"
