    It really is a wonderment to watch, wonder why there is so much passion by so many for a Federally mandated entitlement program that history says will be similar to the high costs and low returns of SS and Medicare

    No, the bills were not approved. No funding has been approved for FY2014.

    Taxes have been raised every year since 2009?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I think it is awesome until the bill comes due, a bill which for some reason a liberal never seems to get. The key is will Obamacare be able to get the young healthy individuals to sign up so that costs aren't bourn by the taxpayers. That remains to be seen. I cannot help but wonder why you have such passion for this issue especially knowing that it is a personal responsibility as well as a state expense not a Federal expense. You simply cannot see this as the money and power grab that it is. Wonder why?

    Right? What do you mean? What I said was a page from Economics 101.

    How many of them dropped checks in the mail after viewing the website?

    Oh, well in that case, be sure to keep your thoughts to yourself.


    Your claims about your Senator are irrelevant because Utah is a conservative state and on that principle got it right. You really think I give a damn about a govt. employee getting a furlough knowing that they will get their back pay when the shutdown ends? You really believe that today's Democrat party has a clue what they are doing to the economy of this country or even care? I say they don't care because to them it is all about power and using people like you to get their lies out.
    Well, since you're asking, I think my claims are more relevant, credible and well thought out than yours, actually.
