I understand you're a liberal, and as such, slower than the rest of Americans, but how many times do I have to explain how the money he gave to me was subject to taxation and costs to his company before I receive what's left over? I don't get even half of the money he paid into my healthcare plan, not to mention individual plans are much more expensive then group plans.<quoted text>And now you would have to pay $500? Oh my. No wonder you are so indignant.
Again I ask: how many people do you know that have a residual five to six hundred dollars left at the end of the month after all their expenses are paid? If they do have this disposable income, why have they not been applying it to their home loan, their car loan, their credit cards or collage loans for their children? Or do you know such people that don't have these expenses? I don't know of any people like that. Do you?
And if you do know people like that, why were they not investing that residual income in real estate, the stock market or commodities? Why did they not invest in their own business?
The problem is you government leeches have no idea how things are for working people. Because government takes care of everything for you doesn't work that way when you depend on only yourself and perhaps your spouse. Your fantasy of how things operate for working people is just that, a fantasy.
