    The same Americans who carry an average balance of $10k on their credit cards, who don’t believe federal deficits matter, who think the national debt will never come due, and who vote for Mr. Obama to get more free stuff, are in for one heckuva rude awakening. My prediction: the next four years will be worse than the last four. Hello Greece!

    It’s pretty cool how Dems can give away stuff for free and nobody has to pay for it. I know it defies logic, but oh well, let the good times roll.

    What part of
    “Shut up and BUY your OWN Health Care Insurance!!”
    don’t you ‘personal responsibility’ focused ‘Conservatives’ not understand?

    You show you know nothing about government economics. With a billion jihadists waiting in the Islamic Dominion of Canada and the Islamic Republic of Mexico, our essential defence expenditures don’t count as part of the budget, so no matter how much we spend on the military, that does NOT count as part of the deficit.


    On the other hand, when people pay for unemployment insurance, that money is targeted to defend the US against jihadists and incentivise job creators, and must never be squandered paying those laid off layabouts.


    Likewise, the money people were taxed for Social Security and Medicare is needed for vital purposes like the oil depletion allowance, and cannot be wasted on indolent elderly hypochondriacs.


    We must have all those unemployment payments, Social Security payments, and Medicare payments kept and used to balance the budget!

    Bush gave tax “rebates” to everyone. And borrowed the money to do it. Once you republican stop giving money away instead of paying for all of your programs (did Bush ever veto a bill?), you’ll gain some credibility

    Let’s modify the ’toon just a little bit:

    Patron has waitress deliver double-bacon double cheeseburger with extra mayo, fries, and a 32-ounce soft drink. Proceeds to pour 1/4 cup of salt on each bit of food before tasting it, and says,“I’m not feeling too well. Maybe after lunch I’ll go to the hospital’s emergency room for some free care.”

    I’m considering giving an Obamacare credit in my practice, with a war tax to balance it out.

    I figure that if the job creators’ personal wealth was taxed, they’d be incentivised to invest more into the business and create more jobs, eh?

    Costs rise. Food costs have been going up, as transportation costs have risen, and so has the price of feed and fertilizer. This makes the cost of the final product rise. Did we hear moaning and groaning from restauranteurs about that? No, prices went up at the cash register, just like everywhere else. No one said, “I can’t stay in business anymore. I have to use a surcharge. I have to lay people off.” This only started as a reaction to the fact that Romney wasn’t elected. If only there were no Obamacare, the economy would be perfect? How stupid, to cherrypick one cost that is rising and use it as a rallying cry.

    Let me ask Ms. B something. Which will cost more, medications for diabetes, or paying for dialysis or amputation after an emergency room visit because of a diabetic coma? What part of “a stitch in time saves nine” do she and her like-minded co-horts not understand?

    The only way to save money on prevention is to let people die when the cure is necessary. Are we ready to watch this happen? Let’s take this to its logical conclusion: who needs doctors anyway? We have Wikipedia and WebMD……..

    I haven’t got my free stuff yet.
    I know that 3 years ago birth control pills cost $36 a month plus the cost of going to a doctor to get a prescription. That is a lot of money for some people.
    Birth control pills have other uses, such as regulating hormone levels and preventing mood swings.

    Nope, libs on average have been shown to make more money, contrary to popular belief, yet the conservatives give more to charity. It is the dems who want forced “charity” and give away other people’s money for them, which means instead of giving to what you consider worthwhile the gov’t selects the “charity” for you…charities such as illegal alliens, planned parenthood where you can murder your own child, the corrupt unions, and the lazy welfare slobs who prefer to lay on their couches waiting for their next government check rather than doing for themselves.

    What is it about all of us that WERE responsible, have no debt, live within our means and plan for the future by having and sticking to a budget that want the government to do the same thing? ARe we crazy?

    The mandate in Obamacare was a Republican idea. I guess the only logical thing to do is get rid of it and make Obamacare a single payor system, like every other civilised country, and not have any of the costs levied to Denny’s or Papa John’s. Of course, NOT eating at either of those establishments will probably lower healthcare costs…

    @olfart

    Mr. fart, I agree with you whole heartedly. In order to get contraceptives, a lady must have a prescription from a physician for an approved contraception method. I’d much rather pay for this than pre-natal care, birth of and care for a baby and WIC payments for how long? ACA will also pay for voluntary sterilization which will aid older ladies who do not want more children (for those with insurance), If only this had been around years ago.
    I believe insurance should stop paying for Viagra, etc. but instead should pay for birth control for men.

    @Ms. Ima

    The latest unemployment figures include those unemployed by Sandy, so where did you get this information?
