Obviously the self-serving lord marshal b. h. obama and his marxist ilk are tax hungry rats. Like sick despicable theives always after something that does not belong to them. Let's hope misery lands at the doorsteps of each fool who voted for that slug.

Stop all the crying loser, you lost; STFU! Try winning an election so you can see how great it feels to win, and then your side can run things and do whatever they want… like we are doing now. But I have some bad news for you: It will be generations before your side ever sees the inside of the White House again.

But at least I get to rub in the fact that you lost and that OBAMACARE was deemed CONSTITUTIONAL, LOL!

Do you think Romney will win the 2012 election? How about Obamacare - do you think it will be ruled unconstitutional? Please let us know what else you think.

Why Liberals Are More Intelligent Than Conservatives
Liberals think they’re more intelligent than conservatives because they are

It is difficult to define a whole school of political ideology precisely, but one may reasonably define liberalism (as opposed to conservatism) in the contemporary United States as the genuine concern for the welfare of genetically unrelated others and the willingness to contribute larger proportions of private resources for the welfare of such others. In the modern political and economic context, this willingness usually translates into paying higher proportions of individual incomes in taxes toward the government and its social welfare programs. Liberals usually support such social welfare programs and higher taxes to finance them, and conservatives usually oppose them.

Defined as such, liberalism is evolutionarily novel. Humans (like other species) are evolutionarily designed to be altruistic toward their genetic kin, their friends and allies, and members of their deme (a group of intermarrying individuals) or ethnic group. They are not designed to be altruistic toward an indefinite number of complete strangers whom they are not likely ever to meet or interact with. This is largely because our ancestors lived in a small band of 50-150 genetically related individuals, and large cities and nations with thousands and millions of people are themselves evolutionarily novel.

The examination of the 10-volume compendium The Encyclopedia of World Cultures, which describes all human cultures known to anthropology (more than 1,500) in great detail, as well as extensive primary ethnographies of traditional societies, reveals that liberalism as defined above is absent in these traditional cultures. While sharing of resources, especially food, is quite common and often mandatory among hunter-gatherer tribes, and while trade with neighboring tribes often takes place, there is no evidence that people in contemporary hunter-gatherer bands freely share resources with members of other tribes.

Because all members of a hunter-gatherer tribe are genetic kin or at the very least friends and allies for life, sharing resources among them does not qualify as an expression of liberalism as defined above. Given its absence in the contemporary hunter-gatherer tribes, which are often used as modern-day analogs of our ancestral life, it may be reasonable to infer that sharing of resources with total strangers that one has never met or is not likely ever to meet – that is, liberalism – was not part of our ancestral life. Liberalism may therefore be evolutionarily novel, and the Hypothesis would predict that more intelligent individuals are more likely than less intelligent individuals to espouse liberalism as a value.

Analyses of large representative samples, from both the United States and the United Kingdom, confirm this prediction. In both countries, more intelligent children are more likely to grow up to be liberals than less intelligent children. For example, among the American sample, those who identify themselves as “very liberal” in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 106.4, whereas those who identify themselves as “very conservative” in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 94.8.

How is TAXING medical devices going to DECREASE the cost of healthcare?

It's not.

It will make medical procedures even MORE EXPENSIVE because the devices doctors use are being TAXED by the government.

And Obama has convinced the general public that this is a GOOD THING??

No. A tax on medical devices affects the sick and elderly who need to use medical devices.

And that is about the lowest one can go to collect money for the U.S. Treasury (taxing the sick and elderly).

If wiping your ass is considered a medical procedure, they can tax the shit out of you for toilet paper. It's going to be a catastrophe when the socialists get into full swing.
Prepare for the stupidity to come.
And remember Benghazi. If Obamacare kills your family member, they will just lie about it. Take that to the bank.

There was a reason Obama cynically postponed tax increases like this until after the election.

He no longer has to worry about getting re-elected.

Just wait 'til you see the rest of the ObamaCare tax increases:
