Since you seem so proud of your very misleading stats. How about the real ones..DUMBO.
States receiving the most in federal spending per dollar of federal taxes paid are as follows.
1 D.C.$6.17 2 N. Dakota $2.03 3 N Mexico $1.89 4 Mississippi $1.84 5 Alaska $1.82 6 W.Va.$1.74 7 Montana $1.64 8 Alabama $1.61 9 S. Dakota $1.59 10 Arkansas $1.53.

Now the states that receive the least in federal spending per dollar of federal taxes paid. 1 N Jersey $0.62 2 Connecticut $0.64 3 N Hampshire $0.68 4 Nevada $ 0.73 5 Illinois $ 077 6 Colorado $0.79 7 Massachusetts $0.79 8 Calif.$0.81 9 New York $0.81.... 79% of the states receiving the least spending per dollar of federal taxes paid are "BLUE" states. Suck on that DUMBO.

It's our system of government - for the other side to be heard as elected representative of their constituents and for their voices to count when all is said and done.
This administration seems to have forgotten how it works.

There are two things missing from the so-called "liberals" today.
1) Obama threatening to violate the 14th Amendment and cause the US government to default as a result of Republicans not buying his government shut down hoax; and
2) Sheila Jackson Lee calling for Marial Law on the floor of the House.

The first is a no-brainer.

But, what about 2)? Now, just why would Sheila Jackson Lee call for Martial Law? Perhaps she views that as a valid political tool to use? That's more than kind of like Hitler and Stalin, isn't it. It's exactly like them.

Who wants an obvious nutcase like that to head DHS?

Where was debunked? Glad to see you admit it is not all welfare getting rid of that myth.

Here is a break down of state by state fed spending on Education Spending. Please show how this backs what you are saying.

So you don't think Democrats ever lose elections or the Congress? Republicans didn't treat them like they were irrelevant and passed a major partisan law without giving them any input or having one of them on board. That has never happened - at least not to my knowledge and I've been following politics for four decades now.
I don't even recall the present bullying ever being the case by former Democrats who were elected in the past.
How old are you anyway? Because I can assure you, we are NOT in Kansas anymore.
You teaparty people only became aware of things when President Obama was elected. Before that you were all in a coma; the statements made by you and the other teapartyers on here reflect that.

That's right. Both Democrats& Republicans agreed to spending.
So, they either both didn't demand cuts & they both did.
The Republicans had the spending they wanted but noooooo they wouldn't agree u less the ACA was defended & delayed.
Republicans agreed and overwhelmingly supported the Idea of adding 7 Trillion dollars to the Federal Deficit to pay for Medicare Part D too which is part of the Reason why ACA is so Expensive and is designed to cover the 7 trillion dollars that the Republicans added to the Federal Deficit.

<quoted text>They just said on the news today that the Social Security and Medicare Welfare Programs are the biggest problem and the answer is just eliminate them since the SCOTUS(Liberal Majority) in 1960 stated that Individuals have no rights to Social Security which they stated the Welfare Benefits can be reduced or eliminated at any time which is what the Democrats wanted and is the reason for Section 1104 of the Social Security Act of 1935, entitled "RESERVATION OF POWER," specifically said: "The right to alter, amend, or repeal any provision of this Act is hereby reserved to the Congress." which is even stated on the Social Security Website(link below) and the reason is that Social Security is funded by a tax just like Medicare which is funded by a tax which is why there is no rights to either one.
Supreme Court Case: Flemming vs. Nestor
As I stated above. They can get rid of both programs as long as they get rid of the taxes also.
How much is taken out of a minimum wage forty hour a week person?$60? Assuming that this person never got a raise or another higher paying job the rest of their life how much would that be at 70 assuming they start at 18? Even without compound interest it's $162,240. My guess that with a decent rate of return that money would be several million dollars. So that should be enough to live comfortably during your retirement. Friggin' libtards are so stupid.

Though Treasury likely will have enough cash on hand to meet its obligations for a week or so, it might be forced to pay a higher interest rate on the bonds it is due to issue on Thursday.
Banks and money market funds are already shunning some government bonds that are normally used for short-term loans. In China, the largest foreign holder of U.S. debt, the state news agency Xinhua said it was time for a "de-Americanized world."
So in summary the Tea bagging shutdown of the government and refusal to raise the debt ceiling is going to:
A. Cost us more money with higher interest rates on bonds
B. Further improve their Chinese overlords takeover of the planet.

What a nutjob. Did John Edwards, Anthony Weiner or Bill Clinton ever draft a bill, or pass legislation to eliminate womens rights?
Those three men happen to love women. They're not pedophiles or rapists, nor did they commit incest.
Just because the Democrats often have horny male policitians does not equate to taking away womens rights.

Too bad for you 111 Democrats were on Bush's side even if some of them turned into weasels for no other reason than political gain.

So how does it feel being the elephant?

Congress not only gave Bush the authority to go into Iraq but fund the soldiers in Iraq - including a significant number of Democrats.

See how THAT works??

Duck and run. That is all you are doing. You have egg on your face. Admit it. Your Section and Page references were nothing more than a big fat lie.
I'm guessing you didn't even read what you posted. What you posted was "The Secretary will determine" everything.
There was no standard a law usually states that all Americans understand and can comply with.

Let's see if I understand this. The health care will be allocated as... as your post pointed out... as "The Secretary determines", and there is no standard the Secretary can be in violation of in making that determination.
You really don't know what that means, do you?

Considering the Secretary who will make the determination of who gets health care and how much they get is also the very same person who orchestrated the IRS targeting of political opponents, it doesn't take much of a brain to figure out what will happen.

I'll post again just for your edification:

Obviously, you are ignorant of the most significant descriptions of governmental philosophy ever written in the history of civilization.
You don't even recognize that the text you provided could have been from one of Machiavelli's letters that comprise "The Prince".
"The Secretary shall determine...."
Do you even realize what this law means when it gives arbitrary and subjective authority to some person who occupies some position in government?
What you provided is proof there is no law to be enforced. Everything you provided proves ObamaKare intends for subjective enforcement. There is no criteria in the text you provided for the people to read and understand what the law is that they must comply with.
What is written in the law is, the Secretary decides who gets health care, and who doesn't. The Secretary decides what hospitals get paid, and which ones do not.
The ObamaKare law is nothing more than another Democrat Marxist program to give what one individual works for to someone who won't work for it.
The ObamaKare law couldn't have been more Marxist if Karl Marx would have written it himself, and it couldn't be more Machiavellian if Machiavelli had to approve what Karl Marx wrote.
"The Secretary will determine...."
The Secretary will not be reviewing and approving/denying payment. There will be a huge bureaucracy doing that, under the orders and guidance of the Secretary... like the IRS Secretary ordering the opponents of the Democrats be targeted.
Since that same person will be the "Secretary" adjudicating ObamaKare, it's obvious those who oppose the Democrats will be dying on the street without health care.
ObamaKare is a Marxist program with Machiavellian execution.
It's that plain and simple, and obviously medieval.

I'm still holding out that Obamacare will doom itself about this time next year...if not sooner. If Americans still don't get it by then, we will officially be the DDUSA - the Dumb and Dumber United States of America - and I will want no part of it.
If, after Obamacare, the people I once considered fellow Americans prove they are still the dumb and dumber, then I will accept we are doomed.
But since I've grieved over not recognizing my country or my fellow countrymen in 2008, literally, until the tea party movement showed me they were still there, this time I will simply accept it and move on with my life as a Floridian and former American.
Then wait for the eventual knock on the door when the modern-day brownshirts come and take me away for my treasonous posts.
Sonic and Lily and all the rest will cheer just like good little loyalists have done who were also on the wrong side of history and people like you and me will never be heard from again.

Lily, you will never understand that the tea party movement was ONLY about government being held accountabile AFTER the economic crisis which spurred the movement as much as it was about Obama's promise to make government even bigger and even less accountable.

Conservative Republicans figured out that government had, indeed, gotten out of control and, yes, they were partly responsible.

Democrats are just as clueless as ever when even when they were equally, if not more, responsible.

What do you have against government accountability anyway?

Wouldn't you expect the same from a Republican administration after the economic crisis?
