    How do you "pay for a job"? That doesn't even make sense.

    car to get to the job,
    Yes, I support public transportation and/or transportation vouchers for those who need to get to work and can't afford it. The economy will function more efficiently if people are able to get jobs outside of their immediate geographical surroundings. It's pretty hard to bootstrap yourself, if you can't get a job more than a few blocks from your house because you can't afford a car.

    food,
    Yes, I support food stamps for those who need help. A population that isn't malnourished tends to be more productive and cause less crime/unrest.

    a house to live in
    Yes, I support public assistance for housing for those who need help. A population that isn't living on the streets will be more able to acquire a job and/or training, and cause less crime/unrest.

    Where does it end for you socialists?

    I'm gonna take this opportunity to gloat today. NYAH NYAH NYAH NYAH!
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    So that's a "yes", you support bailouts when people or corporations gamble and lose. We simply can't afford that sorry.
    Healthcare coverage means just that... not some sort of pick and choose like a Chinese restaurant menu.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    This from one so insecure he has to follow along & use the same type & font as everyone else, when there are untold combinations of font, type & color just waiting to be used.


    I think this would suit a clownboy.

    When they announce it to the world, yes, I expect them to hold to what they said. You know their profits haven't sufferred from Obamacare. But you go on believing Obama with get you single payer. Are you denying he didn't bargain it away?

Get real!
    Yes but every $1 that Texas (or any other state) collects to pay for this Medicaid expansion, they'll actually be able to put $2 towards the program. That's a great deal and any governor/legislature would be stupid not to take it. I have no doubt that there are some who WILL be that stupid, at least in the short term. But I strongly suspect that 5 years from now, they'll all be on board. Even the Republican states will simply wait until no one is looking, then quietly enact it.

    No, once off welfare after 5 years which should be the maximum allowed.

    And you don't understand that simple phrase either do you?

    Do you believe your neighbors must pay for your pursuits? I think you do.
