“If the results presented in this and the previous column arent enough to persuade Republicans and conservatives that its now or never time to defund this madness, what ever will be?”
The author implicitly assumes that the gop cares what happens to “the little people.”
The thing about this is it kind of compliments a strategy I think conservatives should embrace: boycotting state marriage. Go get married in church and skip the license.
From the documents I received from my employer this week, those exchange health care plans are paid for in after-tax dollars.
I have a feeling there are going to be lots of people crying when they see how much they’re going to have to pay. And even more crying when they find out Granny or Momma is going to be sent home to die without pain meds.
We here know this is going to be bad. Most of the idiots in this country have no idea. I really believe this country will be third world status within 5 years.
If you file your taxes as a single divorced person do you have to include a copy of the divorce decree? I’ve never had to provide one before and I’ve been through 3 divorces.
I wonder if this isn’t all going to come to a screeching halt about one week after people start going online.
I’d like to see the looks on the obama voters’ faces when they figure out how much their “affordable” insurance is going to cost them. It almost makes me regret having cut off communication with them.
Did you mean to say “suckers”?
My Wife and I fit that Demographic to a tee.
Look what the war on marriage has done so far.
Somehow we (4) manage to survive on less than the lowest income listed for the biggest subsidy. Been surviving that way for a decade.
Exactly! My south of the border neighbors (not my real neighbors, I’m speaking metaphorically) in my town were married in Mexico. They are not recognized as married here in the US. Thus they get SNAP as they both file as no income (most get paid in cash), and they both file as having custody of the kids (no SS card, so... no way to cross reference). They get WIC cards, no taxes (except sales taxes), food for the kids in school, free schooling (our public schools are NOT free here to the average working family). The list of bennies goes on and on.
They have no desire to get married legally, and are trained not to do so.
Similar but not the same with Baby Mommas and their Baby Daddies. You make more money being single and claiming your kids as dependents.
This is why folks who have way less than me can afford to drive Escalades, and I drive a VW TDI.
Pimp it good.
isn’t a VW TDI toureg better than a Escalade?
Though they will deny it,
this is intentional on the part of the left.
Just as in 1984 - relationships, marriage, and family are discouraged and all loyalty is to be to the government.
There’s an old saying in the computer field: “That’s not a bug. It’s a feature.”
Well, I hope so. We just got it a few months ago. Actually based on discussions here on FR.
We bought a 2012 TDI wagon. Winter is coming, so we’ll see how it goes.
The point was cost. I’ve worked my whole life, owned a successful business, and I wouldn’t dare drop down 50k on a car, then toss another 5k into it with rims and sound system.
I would be a fool to do so. But then again, you know what they say about money easily earned... it’s easily spent. My kids say I’m a miser, and I have moth-balls in my wallet. Lessons taught to me by my parents who grew up in the depression I guess.
