My God Flack.
This country did very well in the 50's. A man could hold a job & raise a family in his owned home. That job could be a clerk in a store or a delivery man for the local bakery or run a machine in the local machine shop. Not today. It takes at least two incomes or more in these types of jobs.
The ratio of CEO pay to average worker pay as gone through the roof.
The less & less employees are paid, the less & less they have to buy things. Buying things run the economy.
Handing money to the wealthy only to have a small portion run into the economy is stupid.
It had nothing to do with what I am doing. It is not hating the wealthy.
It is about everyone sharing in the growth of this nations wealth. This is what made us great & so prosperous after WWII through the 50.
You f*cking idiots think this is about hating the wealthy when you are too GD stupid to know the wealthy have been gaming the system.
Why has nearly all the growth on wealth of this country gone to the wealthy? It was not like that before.
Evidently you think it was hard work by the wealthy. Yep, hard work buying politicians & bending the tax law & regulations to their favor. Deregulation!! Deregulation!!
The reason, taxes. The other two reasons is the libtard control of the education system and the progressive Great Society programs. Both designed to control the people. Why are you so envious of the wealthy? Is it because wealthy people are hard for the government to control?

Obama has given trillions of dollars to Wall Street, rescued his cronie moneyed interests and left the poor, middle class workers and homeowners to their own devices you loser...

The demokRATic party is no longer the party of the "workers" and "laborers" now the party of the unemployed and loser...

Democrats win elections humping the backs of the poor...

No they don't. Emergency care is not preventive care. Putting off going to the doctor because you don't have insurance kills people.
O'bama should have killed millions by now according to your analogy. Let's just go with that: O'bama kills Millions of Americans by taking away their health insurance. Now how many exactly according to you have O'bama and his democrats have killed?

Aren't those things hidden somewhere in the ACA?

Or have we been surprised by everything they didn't know was in it?

Wait a minute...did you hear that?

Sounds like lawyers - thousands of them - salivating and drooling. They can smell litigation a mile away.

Over 85% of all ethanol/gasoline blends are used in the US and Brazil. I agree__yes it's stupid but let's see who votes for the continuance of the "ethanol subsidy."

Together, the R's and D's can end the folly but we already know that they won't. Too many lobbyists handing out too much cash.

As for the world's starving?

The US has invested billions in the attempt to teach the worlds starving how to farm something besides rice__Hah!

I just don't get it, Homer. According Galt, Batty, namE, etc., everything is just peachy keen about the one percenters owning fifty percent of the country's wealth (and that means the the revenue belonging to 0-100% of the people)yet they're here day and night whining about everything being WRONG in the country. They should at least be thankful that people like Romney are getting what they deserve, no?

He was lucky to get under the wire...before his insurer either dropped him or raised his premiums five times higher than they are now for the same surgery...or just in case his wife was pregnant at the time.

Like many Americans are finding out now.

Are you going to be happy paying for maternity care? Do you have a wife who is of childbearing years?

Doesn't matter. You'll be paying for it anyway.

I guess it's OK for you to talk about being dumb, seeing how you so experienced at that.

Thanks for justifying the post I ended up erasing the other day.

Apparently, it wasn't necessary.

What I erased was you might get lucky and get to pull the trigger.
