Do you remember the fallen solder who was electrocuted to death while taking a shower? What compensation did his family get? Just to save a dollar

Over $60,000 in Welfare Spent Per Household in Poverty

"According to the Census’s American Community Survey, the number of households with incomes below the poverty line in 2011 was 16,807,795," the Senate Budget Committee notes.

"If you divide total federal and state spending by the number of households with incomes below the poverty line, the average spending per household in poverty was $61,194 in 2011."

Obama's Stimulus: A Documented Failure

"Everyone except flacks for the White House knows that the 2009 stimulus package failed miserably to produce the promised results," Lindsey wrote.

"But even if you buy the White House's argument that the $800 billion package created 3 million jobs, that works out to $266,000 per job.

Taxing or borrowing $266,000 from the private sector to create a single job is simply not a cost effective way of putting America back to work.

The long-term debt burden of that $266,000 swamps any benefit that the single job created might provide."

huh? only if those jobs are in the public sector and taxes are decreased.

Private sector job loss is never a good thing when a tax increase is the cause.

Millions were spent sending my unit overseas for the rebuilding of Iraq. Bush signed 79 billion package in April. It went to Halliburton and KBR, a subsidary of H. Cheney being a former Ceo and a current stockholder.hmmmm. Anyhow, our equipment was nothing small by any means. Asphalt plant, rock crushing plant. much heavy equip. 66 railcars. 16 tractor trailer loads. It cost 2 million alone for the round trip shipping. Not to mention troop costs and future costs of veteran status soldiers. Halliburton and kbr did jobs that military units were suppose to do. At one time there were more contractors in Iraq than military. In the heat of war! I guess giving no-bid contracts to companies in direct line with the Vp is of any concern to the conservatives like tax no more. Bush was informed that the rebuild would only need be 1.7 billion yet he signed off 79 bill in april and another 87 billion in november. So kbr could put out oil well fires, pave roads, ect. Mean while our infrastructure was crumbling. This is just the tip of the Bush/Cheney bilking America scheme. There's more to come. Oh yeah, 2003 Bush aware of potential attacks at embassy's. Why wasn't a fuss made about them ? Mr McCain ?

If i made 15$ a hour and the bush tax cuts of a extra 3 percent i get how much from mentioned tax cut? A person who makes a 100, 000 a hour gets the same 3 percent bush tax cut. How mush did he get? Don't forget that 40 percent is borrowed money which only balloons the debt and also remember that every man, woman and child is responsible for national debt equally. The poor and middle class gets seriously screwed, we paid them

Now let's consider the case where you get paid 15 dollars an hour, but you work all year with no vacation time.

If you worked the entire year without any breaks, that would be 52 weeks.

Assuming 40 hours a week, that equals 2,080 hours in a year.

Your hourly wage of 15 dollars would end up being about $31,200 per year in salary.

//////////

A word about the 80 million Americans now covered by their employers with health insurance and who won’t be for much longer.

Company X has 100 employees it pays $15.00 an hour and covers 50% of the cost of a $7200.00 a year health insurance policy or **$3600 per employee per year.

If Company X drops its coverage it will pay a penalty (tax) of between 2-5% on the gross salary of each employee.

In this case the gross is $15. x 40 x 52 =$31,200 per year.

A 5% penalty on $31,200 would be $1560. per year per employee or $156,000.

Before obummercare **$3600. per year x 100 employees is $360,000.

Is Company X better of paying a penalty of $156,000 or $360,000 a year in insurance premimum costs?

There was a fuss made and your proof it continues.

After every major war or conflict, the US always rebuilds the country so what is your point? Only Bush done it and that makes him the bad man? Do you think the President just sends over a suitcase full of cash on his own?

Clearly your not looking for answer, just to bash.

You're just a Bush, Republican hater. Go get yourself an education....it will do wonders for you.

What part of 3% don't you understand?

What about the 49% who pay nothing in?

What about those who pay nothing in and get up to a 6K tax refund?

We all need to pay in a flat percentage an quit living on government handouts for votes.

Thats just it. Greed. I can see if company X's financials are not good. But, with some Ceo's making millions. It's greed. Welcome back to kings and such. Profits in the millions. it's greed. So the greedy ceo of company X just pays the fine. The employees go on for years without proper medical care. They hit the medicare years. Who pays for that ? Where does that money come from ? People with ailments that should have been treated long ago. Now, have more and no preventative care caused it. So, the rich get richer. We all pay for their greed.

The article had nothing to do with Romney or sending jobs over seas or ruining lives, it has to do with the affects of your leaders joke of a health care system that will break the backs of the middle class and the rest of the tax paying population. Quit blaming people already, the election has been over. The affects of obama care are coming to light and we the tax payers are going to take the hit whether it be hours being cut from jobs or the end of the year tax that will in fact come from not having health care.
