For starters, by removing investor choice and directing retirement funds to crummy yields:
"In 2010 Senators John Kerry- D, MA and Jeff Bingaman-D, N.M proposed ideas that have been circulating in discussions and public hearings at the Treasury and US Labor Department since which has been endorsed in the Obama administration's 256 page Budget Proposal For Fiscal Year 2013. The centerpiece is an "Automatic IRA" in which employers are directed to allocate an amount that equals 3% of a participating employee's salary into a social security-type retirement plan that invests in US treasuries and in which the federal government guarantees a 3% return. Smaller firms with 10 or less employees would be exempt. Even though tax credits to businesses would be provided for this scheme the concern is that this would add an additional cost burden on small businesses that would restrict job growth."
Where is the take over. Where is it that the government is taking peoples IRAs.

You said it.

The US Treasury IRA concept was a plan for lower income people as a starter until their plan values $5000. These treasury plans have no administrative costs. At that point it would be switched to a private plan.

<quoted text>On an average visit Medicare reimbursement to a Doctor is $50.00. 4/6 patients per hour is $1600/$2400 per day.$12,000 per week.$624,000 per year possible just on Medicare patients. You call that losing money?
I call that bad medicine and your complete lack of understanding of business costs.

Any doctor seeing 48 patients per day is not devoting sufficient care and attention to any of them.

What I find disgusting is that dumbf*cks like you rant and have a for about a couple fraudulent votes yet support a party that would take the vote away from millions of eligible voters.
The right to vote is sacred.
You f*cking idiots run around waving the Constitution yet piss on it every day.
go f*ck yourself.
When the f*ck is the Republican Party going to do something for this country instead of for their own GD re-election.
You people make me sick.
The districts where minorities stood in line for hours were full of blacks who never voted before who were too stupid to know how to vote in polling places staffed by other minorities and they sure weren't Asians.

Nothing, as long as you don't expect your employer to be required to extend spousal benefits.
Frankly, government should not be involved in marriage one way or the other, in any form. Marriage should be a civil contract. That includes divorce, alimony, child support, etc., all of which should be established by contract, not by government edict.
OK...then I am guessing that you are married...but I WANT YOUR property...and you say the GVT has no say in the property rights or who owns what? You people are cray cray!!!

<quoted text>A Doctor (MD) has 4 years of actual Med school. A Nurse Practitioner has a minimum of 6 years Med school and many have 8 years of Med school. But anything from the FrightWing to get a stir.
A medical doctor has four years undergraduate, four years of medical school, and several years internships.

Nurse practitioners do not normally have any formal medical school education, only nursing education, often in hospital nursing schools instead of university settings. Licensing and education requirements vary from state to state.

Middle class taxpayers
You can bet they're going to take as much as they can from them. But, the reality is, there isn't enough money there to pay for Obama's government, so they will have to get the rest of th emoney from somewhere else, and nobody knows from where.

That's the problem in a nutshell. And, if that source isn't identified, the government spends itself into collapse.

Medicare can be cut. I have an elderly neighbor who has to use an oxygen machine at night while she sleeps. Medicare pays $4800 a year to rent the machine from lyncare, the same machine can be bought for $986 and serviced at the same 2 times a year for $60. Multiply that waste by thousands reciving the service and wonder why government can't find cuts.
Medicare is run as well as Amtrak and the USP Office. Can't you just wait until the government is in charge of all healthcare?

Marriage should be a private contract between individuals. The government should have no say in division of marital property. Hire a lawyer and draw up a contract addressing these issues before marriage.

My marital status is irrelevant.

Fk you pal, as a straight down the middle moderate I've got a lot of ground to cover.

With "up to" 22% of the nation's voters being right wing freaks such as yourself and 10% being left wing treehugging PETA types__surely you can see that keeping peace among the remaining two thirds takes some fancy footwork. Thankfully I've got a terrific support network both here and in my official muckety muck role.

What the f ck does that have to do with the price of beans in Boston? That blonde hair, blue eyed man/God you worship was black. The 1st doctor to successfully perform open heart surgery was black. Shall I go on? What does it matter what race the poller actually was?
