I knew it. Its the money. You don't want to fund our country? You think we can survive as a country without taxes?? Or did you expect someone else to pay your share.
This is another common Tea Party trait. Being too cheap to fund their own government.
Running the government, or its original intended constitutional limitation, isn't a problem. So, now you're in favor of corporate subsidies?

Pay my share? Share?

There is hope in the world that not all rightwingers are dittoheads. Overheard in a car wash yesterday that had a tv on reporting on the beheading of the journalist, a man went to the cashier to pay and said : "And Obama went golfing after that, he did!"
The cashier said nothing, just stared ahead, I stared at him too and when no one responded to his robotic dittohead comment, he just skulked away. I was phenomenal!
I wonder if they realize that they are programmed?
"I wonder if they realize that they are programmed?"

I dunno.

Did you ask the cashier if he was?

Sounds like he was just staring ahead saying nothing.

That may change. Unions are dying. You know when a Wal-Mart adds a food market to a store and doesn't get burned down, the unions are weaker, or, at least, not mob controlled anymore.

Besides, Jersey girls don't pump gas.:-)

Please try and at least keep up with current events. This has been reported ever since Obama decreed the employer-based insurance mandate be pushed back to January 2016 instead of 2015.
He probably thought it best to hold off on the mass confusion a little longer after the first round of mass confusion and millions of Americans got their cancellation letters from their private insurers the end of last year. Think it might backfire again though since millions more Americans will be receiving their employer-based cancellation letters right before the election.
Sounds like secret rightwing gibberish to me doll__no luck on finding an intelligent explanation from a reliable source???
Why am I not surprised?
Oh, and by the way, did you finally discover that 10% of $83.00 is $8.30?
