    So when the GOP does it and calls it Romneycare it's OK but if the DNC does it and calls it Obamacare, then suddenly it's a big deal? Pfft.

    I don't think I am taking from you to give to me. So far this year I paid $30,177 in federal taxes, $2,541 in medicare taxes, $10,602 in NY state tax, $1,650 in NJ state tax, and $9,452 in social security taxes. Now granted I will get some back due to Schedule A and having paid taxes through 2 employers (and no doubt a 3rd when I get another contract in a few weeks); but I have to assume the $80K to $100K I pay in taxes every year somehow entitles me to get something back. And since a bill paying screw-up cancelled my COBRA, I am looking forward to Obamacare. It has to be cheaper than Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield trying to jack me for almost $2K a month and trying to say my wife's diabetes won't be covered. I'm thinking on October 1st that crap-ass crew of sleazes in Washington are finally going to give me something for my money. Either that or I need to contact the VA and see if I am eligible for Tricare since USAF got 20 years of reserve duty from me. But I would assume the nearest VA hospital is going to be in Syracuse or beyond and that's a 150+ mile round trip. One way or the other I want something back from Uncle Sam instead of carrying all the bottom feeders that pay a mere fraction of what I do in taxes.

    Actually, you are one of the bottom feeders that are carried by me. I spent 20 years protecting your freedom of speech so you could even type that garbage, and I guarantee I pay 5x to 10x what you do in taxes every year. Hell, I bet my taxes are more than your salary by a long shot. Maybe more. People like you should kiss the a$$es of people like me that pay 90% of the taxes. Your kind hasn't paid a dime for my decisions. Other way around. I pay for your kind to even exist.

    LOL. You know way far less than you think you know about me or anything else for that matter. Lets see where to start on your last two foolish posts. We'll start with this: "a bill paying screw-up cancelled my COBRA". Uh why don't people pay their bills on time? It's always one of two things, if not both. (a) they don't have the money (b) they are stupid.

    Now on to this: "but I have to assume the $80K to $100K I pay in taxes every year somehow entitles me to get something back." (a) you don't pay your bills so it's very questionable if you make what you claim (b) point out which part of the tax code "entitles" you to get something back if you haven't overpaid (c) some people pay way more than what you claim you pay others pay way less than what you claim you pay. If everybody gets "something back" it does little good to pay taxes to begin with.

    Now this: "It has to be cheaper". Your screw up caused you to look elsewhere for insurance. It's not BCBS fault you screwed up and they are not in business to go broke. In the future, don't be a screw up.

    Now this: "I need to contact the VA and see if I am eligible for Tricare since USAF got 20 years of reserve duty from me." The VA and Tricare are two completely different organizations. 20 years of service and you don't know that? 20 years of service and you don't know if you are eligible for Tricare? Those make it questionable if you even did 20 years of service. But if you did, why are you so screwed up you don't know what you are eligible for? Everybody else gets briefed repeatedly on what they are eligible for. Sounds like it goes back to item (b) on why people don't pay their bills.

    Now this: " trying to say my wife's diabetes won't be covered." It will be covered just as soon as she meets the wait requirement required by the state of New York. You should already know this if she really has diabetes.

    Now this: " I would assume the nearest VA hospital". You have access to a computer and most likely a phone. Item (b) again on why people don't pay their bills.

    Now this: "Actually, you are one of the bottom feeders that are carried by me." No I'm not and no you don't.

    Now this: " I spent 20 years protecting your freedom of speech". Why thank you (if you did serve). But does my military time count toward me protecting my own freedom of speech or is it just yours?

    Now this: "I guarantee I pay 5x to 10x what you do in taxes every year". If based on what you claim to make, you don't. Item (b) again on your part.

    Now this: " Hell, I bet my taxes are more than your salary by a long shot." No need in you playing the lottery or betting on the Kentucky Derby. You make horrible bets.

    Now this: "People like you should kiss the a$$es of people like me that pay 90% of the taxes". By your standard you'd be kissing mine.

    Now this: "Your kind hasn't paid a dime for my decisions. Other way around. I pay for your kind to even exist." You have no clue as to what my "kind" is. Lots of item (b) there.

    Government spending is bad unless it benefits me personally, then it's the best thing ever.

    IOW, you want total compliance, and glowing review regardless of the actual garbage in this bill...I understand, most propagandists in history thought the same way. Not sayin', just sayin'....The real work would seem to rely on listening to the people, right? Well then, why is it that this turd is unpopular as it is in the public, is not being delayed before it is forced on people in its current broken fashion, and causes damage to lives?
