    Its a house ways and means official report. You do not need a crystal ball to read the writing on the wall.


    Leaving all that out...What do you think 15k+ IRS agents will sit around doing in the next ten years?

    An expansion of 100 is enough to be concerned about.
    The House? I thought they moved that body to Mars, most who are there are not from this planet.
    80% of Americans are already exempt from the tax and many more will purchase insurance now that they can afford it. There won't be many that pay.

    I missed where conservative here were hailing the campaign finance decision.

    You don't complaint about giving money to corporate farms or oil companies in the form of tax credits... why do you far-rigties bitch so much about giving a few of pennies your taxes to help provide a standard of living for poor families?

    Seems all backwards if you ask me.

    It's really f--ked up morals, IMO. Give to the rich and successful and let the poor die.

    It's not really simple. If you try to vote the bill out (a difficult proposition) you would have to contend with what ought to stay and what one wants to replace it with. Neither is simple.

    There. Fixed. Did you have a response to my comments? Here is what I wrote:

    We're into page 86 and growing by the second. But where have I cherry-picked? And it's not out of context. Adam made an assertion that there was a sliding scale involved. He even posted proof. I pointed out that the sliding scale in the bill was a chimera, an illusion.

    Take your own advice. Try some honest debate for once.

    That money=free speech, including corporations? That was and is a big one here. Heck, I joined in with the belief it was a good ruling.
