You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
So, how about those skyrocketing taxes and ineffective military?

Charity begins at home, not at the IRS.
If given free rein under this present ideological insanity, the IRS would punish Americans for being charitable.

Because that money should have gone to the government.

We're headed down that path. Harassing Americans with opposing political views is just the tip of the iceberg.

If it weren't for Republicans keeping this outrageous and un-American attempt by the IRS in the public eye, no telling where - or how far - it would go.

CBO Lowers Obamacare's Price Tag By $104 Billion Over 10 Years

Most of the change can be linked to lower spending on tax subsidies for coverage purchased on and its state counterparts, which can in turn be linked to lower-than-expected premiums.

CBO projected that the federal government would spend $164 billion less than previously expected on Obamacare subsidies by 2024. It appears that a number of factors contributed to that change. Premiums, especially in the near term, are expected to be lower than previously projected: The office estimated premiums would rise on average by about $100 in 2015. They are still expected to rise over the next decade, but at a lower rate than previously thought.

It's a combination of rising medical costs, a healthier enrollment population in 2015 and the make-up of the Obamacare plans, which have narrower provider networks and lower provider payments than their counterparts in the large-group market, that contribute to the CBO's calculations on premiums. Other changes, such as a smaller under-65 population, also factored into the revisions.

let the FOXbot denial begin.

Parag Patel, D.O

was doing this:

"ORI and Advocate Health Care found that the Respondent engaged in research misconduct by directing or intimidating fellows and others to influence left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) scores of <= 35% and requesting attending physicians to reassess scores of LVEF to be reported as <= 35% for research subjects after being diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction, thereby causing and being responsible for falsification of research records. These falsifications made subjects eligible for enrollment into the "Vest Prevention of Early Sudden Death Trial''(VEST) when they otherwise may not have been eligible"

If a Person of Color Was Committing Clive Bundy’s Crimes, the GOP Would Be Demanding Action

Since the American people first elected an African American man as their President, Republicans have shown a predilection for violating federal laws whether it is passing outright nullification legislation over non-existent gun safety measures, or passing unconstitutional legislation to get an audience before the conservative Supreme Court for authority to violate the law with judicial support. Since President Obama’s election, Republicans encouraged their teabagger and conservative supporters to violate federal laws with gun violence and, over the past two weeks, conservatives and Republicans rallied behind an un-American man who refuses to acknowledge federal government or judicial authority to enforce the law of the land.

It is without doubt that if a person of color openly violated a law in front of law enforcement and summoned assistance from gun-wielding supporters, law enforcement would gun them down with extreme prejudice and justify their actions as necessary to maintain order and bring a criminal to justice; no Republican would even consider condemning law enforcement. Republicans maintain a different stance when a white man violates federal law and court orders, and instead of condemning the man’s lawlessness and threat of violence from armed supporters, rushed to rally support for the law-breaker and defend his actions as an important stand for the right to violate federal law.

Walgreens has come under pressure from an influential group of its shareholders, who want the US pharmacy chain to consider relocating to Europe, in what would be one of the largest tax inversions ever attempted.

At a private meeting in Paris on Friday, investors owning close to 5 per cent of Walgreens’ shares lobbied the company’s management to use its $16bn takeover of Swiss-based Alliance Boots to re-domicile its tax base.

The move, known as an inversion, would dramatically reduce Walgreens’ taxable income in the US, which has among the highest corporate tax rates in the world.

The investor group, which included Goldman Sachs Investment Partners and hedge funds Jana Partners, Corvex and Och-Ziff, requested the meeting after becoming frustrated by Walgreens’ refusal to consider relocating, according to people familiar with the matter.

In a note last month, analysts at UBS said Walgreens’ tax rate was expected to be 37.5 per cent compared with 20 per cent for Boots, and that an inversion could increase earnings per share by 75 per cent. They added, however, that “Walgreens’ management seems more hesitant to pull the trigger near-term due to perceived political risks.”

""Where did the Federal Public Lands Come From?
The United States of America began its westward expansion when President Thomas Jefferson doubled the size of the country with the Louisiana Purchase from France nearly 200 years ago.(Across the country the celebration of the two hundredth anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition will be in full swing in 2004/5. Lewis and Clark were commissioned by Jefferson to explore, record, and report on what they found in this vast region.)
In 1848, the United States, following the Mexican-American war, purchased the land of what is now the southwestern part of the country from Mexico and paid $15 million. Present day Nevada and California were a part of that purchase along with Utah, most of Arizona, and the western portions of Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico .... blah... blah... blah... unrelated....------
The USA bought Nevada from Mexico. There's your 'just compensation', you freakin.' moron!
Thereby, it is Federal Land. You lose.
You are too stupid to breathe wilthout mechanical assistance.
And too cowardly to be an American.
First Amendment, moron. Sorry for the typo. I've been referencing the Fifth Amendment so much, that's what my fingers automatically typed at 75 to 80 wpm. You should have recognized that just by reading the test I posted, moron.
The US bought th4 TERRITORY of Nevada, moron. The STATE of Nevada didn't even exist until 1864.
So, Nevada became the State of Nevada in 1864, and you claim some agreement about the Territory of Nevada in 1848 has standing.
Do you still wonder why everyone thinks you're an idiot?
If you want anyone to give you any credence, you need to reference the most recent agreement, which would be the agreement between the State of Nevada and the government of the United States signed in 1864 admitting the State of Nevada into the United States.
How much land did the government of the United States get in the agreement for Nevada to become a state?
Here's a hint: When a territory becomes a state, the land that the territory comprises belongs to that state. Only the agreement between federal government of the United States and that territory to become a state can specify land within that territory that will remain in the possession of the federal government.
So, how much of the state of Nevada was not the state of Nevada when the state of Nevada became the State of Nevada?
On that day in 1864 when the State of Nevada was created, all land withing the boundary of the State of Nevada belonged to the State of Nevada, except that land specified in the agreement between the State of Nevada and the federal government which would belong to the federal government.
So, how much of the State of Nevada didn't belong to the State of Nevada when the State of Nevada became a state?

The Gov't owns the land. Therefore, if they deem a solar farm a good idea, there's nothing to stop them.

Your whining for two days in support of a criminal who's lost repeatedly in Court over a 20 year period is a good indication of what a whack job you are.

So you'll dig yourself a deep hole, everyone on the thread will be laughing at you, and you'll run away for a couple of months again, as you have just returned from, new name and all.
