Ryan budget’s tax cuts would benefit the very wealthy, nonpartisan group says

The tax plan embedded in the House Republican budget would cut taxes by $5.7 trillion over the next decade, with the benefits flowing disproportionately to very wealthy households, according to a new analysis by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

Taxpayers earning more than $1 million a year would benefit the most from the GOP tax plan, the analysis shows, reaping an average $400,000 tax break that would send their after-tax income soaring by nearly 20 percent.

Meanwhile, taxpayers earning between $40,000 and $50,000 a year — closer to the national average — would see their taxes cut by about $666 on average, increasing their after-tax income by less than 2 percent.

Visually checking the card was NEVER excluded as an option-you just don't have the verification the card is legit.
NEVER said it was used for out of state cards-that was you
Anyone who is a licensed liquor merchant may purchase and use the merchant system. They are mandated to program the equipment so it only obtains the card number and birthdate.
Any motel has the equipment that can modify magnetic strips so these are no longer on the cards. The cards now has a QR code.
Any other questions?
yes, did you read the article i gave that showed you are completely wrong? from the DMV director?

Didn't notice the date. Makes a big difference. That was almost two years before ObamaCare became reality - when it was still a pie-in-the-sky pipe dream. Pew should take another poll now. Maybe sonic can find another more recent one.
But it's still going to be at least another year before the fallout becomes reality.
Ok, so we've established that Obamacare is "reality." You just said so. At least now we have a benchmark from which to proceed... Obamacare is "reality" so, therefore, attempts to derail Obamacare are unrealistic... right?

How Paul Ryan's Budget Paves the Way for Another Financial Crisis

Ryan’s plan would lead to more taxpayer bailouts of failing big banks—and by stripping down the budgets of the agencies meant to oversee those institutions, make failure more likely in the first place. But in the meantime, his friends on Wall Street could enjoy less regulation, less oversight, and more comfort that taxpayers will someday come to the rescue.

Just face it: the democrats are the party of criminals and perverts, plain and simple. Less that two percent of the people in this country are homosexuals, no matter how you want to slice, dice and lickety split it. The party of Perverts and Criminals are democrats.

But... you don't. Doesn't that give the lie to the theory? You want to start wars and not pay for them.... You want to reward industries that outsource the production of their product to other cheaper nations but then sell it back to the same people whose jobs they outsourced... You want an entire slave population to be at your beck and call when you need the lawn mowed, but nomadic and unseen any other time... You want so much that involves other people doing things for you it's almost laughable to see you blathering on about personal responsibility and doing things for yourselves... but you never do...

Sorry carol but I'm afraid that I have to rule you psychologically damaged. After viewing the back and forth between you and PDupont for some time now it's way beyond obvious that facts and reality are like kryptonite is to Superman. You shun them as though they don't exist. As soon as you are proven wrong on one issue you immediately jump to the next fabrication, it's basically an endless search for any and everything that will make you feel as though you have contributed. But all you are ever able to do is prove that once programmed baggers are immune to the facts and reality. PDupont has to have the patience of a saint. Most would have discovered long ago that you are a real lesson in futility.

"DELAND, Fla., Nov. 11 - Something very strange happened on election night to Deborah Tannenbaum, a Democratic Party official in Volusia County. At 10 p.m., she called the county elections department and learned that Al Gore was leading George W. Bush 83,000 votes to 62,000. But when she checked the county's Web site for an update half an hour later, she found a startling development: Gore's count had dropped by 16,000 votes, while an obscure Socialist candidate had picked up 10,000--all because of a single precinct with only 600 voters."

What say you about this?

Texas dad killed daughter, her lesbian lover because he disliked that she was gay: mom

A Texas dad disgusted with his daughter’s lesbian lifestyle murdered the young woman and her lover, the girl’s mother said in a shocking twist to a gruesome case.

James Cosby, 46, bludgeoned his daughter Britney Cosby to death and shot her lover, Crystal Jackson, on March 6 before dumping the bodies near the ferry gate in Port Bolivar, Texas, police believe.

In his bedroom, which Cook described as a converted garage, the murder suspect had a copy of the Koran open to a page which talks about homosexuality as a sin, family advocate Quanell X told KHOU. The find may give some insight into Cosby’s disturbed mindset, the advocate said.

so it's wrong for a Party to embrace the majority opinion?

i know it is for you guys, but the rest of us are going with the consensus. just look at how embracing the minority opinion has failed the GOP.
