    My first paycheck of the year was smaller as well. Then come July, I'm going to be paying more for my medical(about $220 a month). My salary may read $66,700 a year but I probably take home less than half of that after all my deductions.

    I seriously doubt you'll continue to be a fanboi for Obamacare once you get the letter informing you that because of your "high risk" lifestyle...you're gonna have to pay exorbitant fees just to get coverage.

    I'm not.
    I don't use them, and I highly object to paying for yours or for anyone LIKE you.

    I am, too, but for a different reason. We cannot afford the social hammock (it hasn't been a safety net for years), but the borrowing hides the cost, so people don't realize how out of control spending has become. Right now, we borrow about 40% of every dollar that we spend, so our taxes only really account for about 60% of the federal budget. If we cut back our spending to match revenues, the federal budget would be about $2.5 trillion, rather than the current $4 trillion. We'd still have a Department of Defense, a State Department, and a lot of other federal agencies, but we'd have to get rid of quite a lot of useless crap (the Departments of Energy and Education come to mind).

    There are about two million people who were probably about to be out on the street had it not been for unemployment being extended again. Two million people not spending or paying bills would be bad for the economy. I do not agree that it's it's a hammock.

    If you got rid of the department of Education, there would be little to no funding for special education. I've seen those wonderful private schools conservatives talk so much about. They usually don't have even one class for special education. Some states would find it important enough to invest in, and some would invest little to nothing into it. In fact, some states would give little to no money into education because they generally don't have an appreciation for it. We need the department of education.

    I understand.

    People who voted for Bush later on whined about the fact that we were still in a war, that the economy was going bad, and so forth. I felt like saying "You made your bed, not shut it." lol.

    We did?

    Sorry Bridget but that's just pure made up bullshit.

    The only people saying that were you and your fellow Libtards.

    I think I found what you look like:



    Safety nets, huh. A safety net is one thing but what you're either to dumb to realize, unwilling to understand, or just flat out blind to see is that for most it's a way of life. Why work when I get everything for free? This is what we're paying for.

    What getting a doctors appointment is going to be like if we get what Nova wants:

    Dr. office: Hello, doctor's office.

    Me, today(1/5/13): Yes, I have the flu and need to see the doctor.

    Dr. office: OK, we can squeeze you in March 13.
