Well Here's how I feel tonight...not that anyone cares.
So Here goes anyway!
Enough of the political minutia for awhile.
Blaming this one or that one reeks of pungent
contempt for our fellow Americans.
This nation has been through 22 recessions and one
great depression since 1900 and we're still here!
Come Wednesday I'll be celebrating the 4Th of JULY!
Shooting my bottle rockets,grilling rib-eyes and raising my beer in toast to The Red White and Blue!
So if you're a man be a man...if you're a woman be a woman. But for our Country if you're an AMERICAN be
And remember we take whatever comes our way...and never have we wavered! NEVER!

While sarcasm is not my forte any more than subtly is yours, I get it that you have been baiting right wing extremists by gloating and making outrageous statements about how everything should be free for most people solely at the expense of the rich. You have reaped the benefits of harsh judgment by your customers so while it may not be nice to taunt people, even misguided extremists, you certainly deserve recognition as a master baiter.
Keep this up and youll have a mob of angry villagers storming your castle with pitchforks.

Ok, I'm hearing how those people who do not have insurance will have to pay. But don't take my word for it, it's just what I am hearing.
It's said: If you make $30,000 a year you will have to spend @$2000. for an insurance policy before you will get a dime from federal. Now, what do you do if you don't even have a job, as is said,$20 million people are without a job, working part time or have fallen off the radar? How in the world does someone who has no job or is barely making it on what they do have; how can these people pay a premium? Because this healthcare policy is in no way FREE.
How much will the premium cost for those who are offered the options....as I think it was said that this would consist of three plans offered? And what insurance companies will be involved in this as selected by the government? In this sense, the government determines what insurance companies can sell this insurance, essentially forcing people buy a commodity from someone in a business. Does this sound legit. to you that they can select the person or persons you have to buy something from? If they can do this, then could they not pass a law stating you must buy your car ( for example ) from certain car dealerships? Or that you don't have to shop at certain stores but if you don't you will pay a penalty/tax. Where can this go astray and what else can it branch into since a precedent has been set with this SC's decision. Is this not the first time in history that we are being taxed or penalized on something we didn't buy?
In the case of those who do have insurance, are satisfied with it and can make the payments, these people will not be involved in this melee. Obama said, EVERYONE must have insurance, everyone will pay for a policy. He speaks little or nothing about those who are not working at all. They can not reach into the pockets of those who are working and paying for their own policy because those people are within the law. He has said those people will not be affected.
In the bill, it's been said, that the little piece of "pork" included that we don't hear about is that 8.7 billion in federal funds have been set aside for illegal aliens to collect on their medical. This was clearly stated to be for immigrants, aka illegals. We did not hear anything about that, that I'm aware of.
Maybe this is why it will take 16,000 newly hired IRS agents to sort through all this and see to it that we all comply?

Health care should be universal and no one should go without it. But if you think about it, food, housing and clothing is even more universal because you need those things everyday and without them you will die. Why should those things not be as important as healthcare?
#43220 Jul 3, 2012
Obama IS creating jobs!!
#43221 Jul 3, 2012
I agree that health care should be available to everyone and favor expanding Medicare to accomplish this. I also agree that food, clothing and shelter are universal human needs and that it is our responsibility as a civilized people to insure no one goes without them.
How do we pay for this? We can call it tax. We can call it socialism. Responsible and effective redistribution of wealth is the price we must pay as modern capitalists to assure these benefits. Accordingly nothing can be free for the majority and the more one benefits from capitalism the more he must contribute for the system to work.

The 1% needs to pay and pay alot. When we expand that to the 40% it works for the other 60% as long as the 60% stays united. Democratic rule will prevail, the 60% set the table for the other 40% and there is nothing they (the 40% that will pay for it all) can do about it.

you will be taxed if you don't give to his campaign.
#43229 Jul 3, 2012
Aren't you the same guy who wants to rein-in Gov't spending but you are supporting trillion dollar elections as long as it goes to your candidate? Yep - just as we thought ...
It looks more like the rats are jumping ship! Conservatives love to suck on the Gov't tit but as soon as it tries up they are the first to turn against the hand that feeds them! The GOPers are unrepentant porkers slipping a whopping 9,000 pork barrel projects into legislation!
#43231 Jul 3, 2012
Im finding it a bit difficult to understand what you mean by the 40% and the 60%. Please clarify.
#43232 Jul 3, 2012
It's very simple. Instead of the top 1% you expand that to the top 40% of income earners. The remaining 60% get either totally free or mostly free depending on how close to the cutoff they are. The top 40% pay for the other 60% that gets free stuff. As long as the 60% always vote democrat then the plan works and the top 40% can't do anything about it.
