Not in your wildest dreams would McCain/Palin have pulled this garbage.
Here in WV we did not majority vote for this president.
We are so screwed..
This tax "surcharge" kicks in when your taxable income surpasses $200,000, $250,000 if filing jointly married. So if your total taxable income including royalties is $300,000 you will pay the surcharge on the last $50,000.
The so called progressives are in fact suppressives.
Kathleen, When those that have worked hard all of there lives go to the hospital, their needs are taken care of and you and I take care of their bill in our health care cost. Why do you think the government needs to weasel in and take more money from us by increasing health care cost?
Kathleen, I have no problem helping out hard-working people that need help. Not everyone will be hugely successful but as long as they keep at it, fine, help them when they need it most.
I do have a huge problem with paying the bills for people that don't make the effort. Over the last ten years 25% of all high school students dropped out before graduating and have no job skills. 40% of all children are born out of wedlock and the "baby daddies" disappear after a few months of dirty diaper changing. Many of these babies are born to girls still in school and many drop out. Worse, they have another baby or two to some other stud before they are 21. And 20-25% of people are doing drugs on a regular basis.
Shut these people off the gravy train. Only allow re-admission if they get a GED and off of drugs. Then they must continue to get education until the have gainful employment or they get tossed off the train again.
I am curious.
Do you think all the documents related to the "fast and furious" program should be available to the public. In a tidy CD format. Including the select ones Obama has sitting on the floor in the Oval Office, meaning the ones he took Exe. Privledge over.
Thats not an answer. Clever, but not an answer.
Your comment on 3.8% for people who make over is intended to reinforce the arguement that "rich people can afford it, and should feel comfortable..almost obligated to do so" we can all see that. it's nothing new. Hear it every day.
My question...simple yes or no. Release all the documents including the redacted ones Obama has sitting on the floor right next to his desk by say...3:30 this afternoon. No questions asked.
Yes or no.
it is NOT the job of our government to distinguish between the 'low life's and hard working poor. It is their job to get out of the way and STOP creating the problem and pretend they must 'fix' it! THEN, the hard working poor could actually see and feel prosperity at their own hands!
they, the govt. also created the health 'insurance' crisis by assisting in the creation of 'managed care' when it was always about managing our lives! it raised the cost and interfered with the doctor-patient relationship. Doctors cannot legally provide ANY services w/o charging or submitting claims/paperwork, even if they wanted to!
Under Obamacare, a doc MUST be hooked into the Federal Data Base, MUST ask patients specific questions, MUST enter the data in the FDB or risk getting a 'low' grade and low or non-existent reimbursements! Even an optomotrist, a simple 'eye doctor' must obey and they have access to ALL your health records, including your antidepressant meds, dx's etc etc! Now YOUR health business is everyone's business, including ALL the office staff! YOUR privacy is gone! Your rights to specific treatment or reject specific treatment are GONE!
Try NOT following recommendations for your child if/when they are sick! The state takes over your child!
All this is by design and has been in the works for many YEARS! It's just all coming together at the same time, again, by design...
Our lawmakers, are in cahoots!!!! They are all aware of these issues and CHOOSE to change NOTHING! They are all complicit and only worry about themselves. So what if they loose the next election, they STILL get paid for life, with our tax dollars! Free excellent health care - not like ours! They get the best OUR tax dollars can buy!
The vote in the house to overturn Obamacare was nothing but smoke and mirrors, to get a vote on record to win reelection! IF they wanted to stop Obamacare, it could have been done on day two of it's passage - JUST DEFUND IT! But, did they? Heck no, all a bunch of liars and thieves!
Did you know a doctor is NOT permitted, by law, to NOT charge a co-payment - even if they wanted to be 'charitable'?
