Under Obamacare the CHEAPEST health insurance policies available to the typical American working family will cost $20,000 per year.
Other effects of the 2,572 page law include:
Premium increases up to 413% for some individuals.
An average $4,100 premium increase for families.
The penalty for taking money out of a Healthcare Savings Account for a non-medical reason doubles from 10% to 20%.
Using an HSA, flexible savings or health reimbursement account to pay for over-the-counter medication is no longer allowed.
FSA's will now be capped at $2,500.
1/3 of employers could stop offering healthcare.
Obamacare will increase the long-term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion.
The itemized deduction limit for medical expenses will rise from 7.5% to 10% of adjusted gross income.
30 million Americans will still be uninsured eight years after Obamacare is fully implemented.
The average family can expect at least $5,875 in new taxes, fees and higher premiums once Obamacare is fully implemented.
Obamacare is the biggest overhaul to our healthcare system and the biggest tax increase in history. It will bring massive changes to our daily lives, most of them negative. Do you think Obamacare should be defunded before it cripples our healthcare system?

Obamacare should be defunded before it cripples our healthcare system - and destroys our economy.

I vote yes.

Don't know if you know about this case, but it was very despicable what happened. More upsetting is that none of the then prosecutors now Judges and the then detective and now sheriff were charged with misconduct.

These sorts of tricks are extremely common inside of Liberal Media. They are 'plants' into the psyche of the readers.

Lying and obfuscation through editing, omission, association, connotation or any of a hundred or so tools they use are a dime-a-dozen. Rules For Radicals is required reading for any American journalism student today.

A unionized family member of mine retired with pension at 55. Upon reaching the age of 62, she was sent a letter from the pension board informing her that her monthly pension amount would soon be cut in half because she could then begin collecting SS at her age of 62.
It went on to tell her that she could get more information regarding this issue by visiting the SS government website or call 1-800-xxx-xxxx.
I have a family member whose company KC also retires management at 55. However, his insurance and pension will continue until 65.

I did not realize that some here would have such a visceral reaction to me stating my opinion.

People give their opinions on other trials-I didn't know this was a sacred cow.

Watch the video - and be prepared to cringe at least a half dozen times.
The link is not at all humorous. It's something put together by JHS kids, I'll bet.

But, backing up a bit, this is not about humor at all. It's like the Magic Negro just killed someone and he's trying to get out of it by telling jokes.

STFU, azzhole.

It might have something to do with the individual pension terms of agreement?

Unfortunately, a lot of Democrats like Maxine Waters are an embarrassment.

Didn't a black congresswoman accuse white people of hunting down blacks during the Martin/Zimmerman race baiting hysteria?

Can't get much more embarrassing than that.

This is the first one I remember - 2009 at a health care rally outside of President Obama’s speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Phoenix, Arizona.

C'mon, Galt. Let's pretend like we have a peace pipe. Take a puff.

Or just agree we're on the same side. And spit on our hands and shake on it.

You're right...I probably do talk too much about myself. Won't happen again. Scout's honor.

At first, I believed Zimmerman caused the death of Trayvon. He left his house with a gun. Got hammered on here for not backing down.

It wasn't until I read the transcript between Zimmerman and the dispatcher all the way through that it became clear the police had agreed to meet Zimmerman at a designated location in the apartment complex...which had changed from the beginning of the conversation.

If Trayvon hadn't been the one on top, I'd probably still think Zimmerman overreacted. And maybe he did. But Trayvon was still the one on top. He should have gone home. No one would have know who he was then or now.

Now, "spiritually unfit" is something you need to learn to deal with.
Don't they have Chaplains inside that prison?
Or has the Magic Negro's reach extended even there and they only have terrorist Mullahs?
Yes, I became tired and decided to stop.

(Promised Galt I wouldn't talk about myself anymore but just repeating what you said.)
