What makes you believe they are not funded by the stimulus bill?
If you go to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act site on Recovery.com , you will find 18 pages of projects funded in Temecula. 18 pages!!!

Thank you for providing this resource. The following project, on page 2 of your reference, is typical of Porkulus. This project spends $119K to fund overtime for cops, providing zero new jobs. Furthermore, it is a poison pill for Riverside County taxpayers, raising the salary base for pension purposes for 30 or more years to come, costing local taxpayers many times the value of the grant.

"Project will fund half of the Southwest County Youth Court Program. Goals will be to review at least 8 youth court cases a quarter, fund at least 65 overtime hours for youth patrol a quarter, and to mitigate a minimum of 33 juvenile criminal cases per year. There are two aspects of this process: enforcement and education. The major strategies for this two pronged approach include: 1. Conduct high visibility foot patrols at the Promenade Mall to suppress or reduce3 juvenile crime. 2. To meet with and develop rapport with businesses that cater to or atract juveniles. 3. Encourange non-violent juvenile offenders and their parents to be involved with the Youth Court Project or Youth Accountability Team (YAT). Work with the Youth Accountability Team staff to review juvenile criminal reports for Youth Court case development. 4. Idenitify resources that are available to parents whose child is a juvenile offender such as the Parent Project, Safe Alternatives for Everyone (SAFE), Social Services, school officials and related programs, counseling services, drug and alcohol intervention programs, etc. 5. Develop and showcase positive peer role models and involve juvenile offenders in the positive side of the Youth Court process such as Peer Jury Duty, Court Clerk duties, etc. Major deliverables include statistical logs filled out indicating youth contacted, cases managed and other pertinent data. These logs will be compiled into a quarterly report to be delivered to the Bureau of Justice Assistance. The Temecula Police Department has already been coordinating with the Murrieta Police Department to set up the Southwest Youth Court Program. This program is operating successfully and coordinating with many local agencies through the Temecula Police Department such as Safe Alternatives for Everyone, the Temecula Valley School District, the Youth Accountability Team, and the Parent Project. One School Resource Officer has been assigned as a Youth Court Officer and is working with the Murrieta Youth Court to set up cases for Temecula Offenders. Mall staff has also begun saturation patrols in conjunction with this program."

if you try to opt out of the ACA, then the IRS is involved.

anybody can opt out of ObamaKKKare (getting insurance) for whatever reason they choose....the only penalty is the tax, which can be collected only from income tax overpayments, i.e., by confiscating any refund......there are no criminal penalties or seizures.....

What did the Republicans do from 1993 through 2006 to fix healthcare? Evidently you think they did something. What was it??
Please list the Republicans in Congress that were thrown out of committee meetings. Refused a seat at the table?

Not exactly true. The IRS can collect the penalty from those that do not voluntarily pay by offsetting any refund, current or future, due the taxpayer. For those that are not entitled to a refund, the penalty does not go away; it will be carried to future years.
there are no penalties, only taxes......

never get in a refund situation and there is no problem......

only fools overpay, anyway....

Well, I see several people have informed you are W R O N G on this account. Ready to say "uncle"?
According to Catherine Livingston, former health-care counsel in the Internal Revenue Services's Office of Chief Counsel:
"If there's no tax refund, where else can the IRS get its $95? Typically, the IRS does have a number of steps by which to recoup unpaid taxes. It can garnish your wages, for example, or, in rare cases, seize property. But with the health mandate, the law's drafters specifically barred the agency from any of those more aggressive tactics.
"In the case of any failure by a taxpayer to timely pay any penalty imposed by this section," Section 1501 of the Affordable Care Act reads, "Such taxpayer shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution or penalty with respect to such failure.
If a penalty does not come out of a refund, it does not fully disappear. Instead, it gets carried over to next year's tax filings and held on the filer's account. The Internal Revenue Service is also allowed to charge interest on any unpaid tax penalty (More on that in the very thrilling Sec. 6601 of the Internal Revenue Service Code). The rate currently hovers around 3 percent.
So the tax penalties accumulate, and the interest goes up and up. But even in an extreme example, where someone doesn't pay the health law's penalties for decades, the powers that the Internal Revenue Service has to collect the unpaid fines don't change.
"The IRS remains very clearly limited in its ability to collect the penalty," Livingston says, "And the accumulation over time does not change those legal limitations."

The Koch Brothers’‘Obamacare Victim’ is not only not a victim but she shares property in Dexter, Michigan with former Washtenaw County GOP chair, Mark Boonstra.
"Boonstra’s old plan cost $1,100 a month in premiums or $13,200 a year, she previously told The News. That didn’t include money she spent on co-pays, prescription drugs and other out-of-pocket expenses.
By contrast, the Blues’ plan premium costs $571 a month or $6,852 for the year. Since out-of-pocket costs are capped at $5,100 for in-network doctors and hospitals, including deductibles, the maximum Boonstra would pay this year for all of her cancer treatment is $11,952.
When advised of the details of her Blues’ plan, Boonstra said the idea that it would be cheaper “can’t be true.”
“I personally do not believe that,” Boonstra said."
Boonstra out and out lied when she said,“Now, the out-of-pocket costs are so high, it’s unaffordable. If I do not receive my medication, I will die.”
Where do they find such stupid people?
"Charles and David Koch that have spent more than $30 million in advertising in competitive Senate races nationwide attacking Democrats on Obamacare.
Their spending has been unmatched in Michigan and elsewhere, prompting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to declare on the Senate floor the Koch brothers are trying to buy elections with “untrue” ads like Boonstra’s.
