    Then they can come over to our progressive tent: we have lots of room, and metal detectors at the door to confiscate your guns and any pocket change we missed.

    You are welcome to move to any state you chose, if the cost of living in TX is too much. If we were 50 separate little nations, that might not be the case.

    Re: Obama to call for new tax increases in State of the Union address

    I thought the GOP hated all taxes

    House Republicans Pass Secret Tax Increase On Small Business In Abortion Funding Ban Bill

    “The bill would do a number of things — including block federal funds for abortion for women who are in the military, who live in Washington, D.C., and who are poor — but one aspect of the legislation that hasn’t received much attention is the fact that it would raise taxes on the vast majority of small businesses. Under the SHOP exchange, a part of the Affordable Care Act, small businesses receive a tax credit if they include abortion care in their plans. Roughly 87 percent of private plans include abortion services as part of comprehensive coverage, meaning the bulk of small businesses would be hit with a tax hike if the bill, called the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, were to become law.”
    The GOP leadership dropped the bill from consideration owing to objections within the party
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    Yeah, but that is irrelevant in your vision of a one size fits all. I don't understand people who don't understand different state cost of living and why a one size fits all program will never work costing way too much and filled with waste, fraud, and abuse

    What is really sad to me is how many people whose mother chose to not abort their child are now supporting another's right to do so. Too bad those other people who chose to abort their child weren't around when these screwballs were conceived.

    I don't understand why regional differences in the cost of living matters. It's not like that's strictly state by state, it's often different within different parts of the same town. The cost of living in Manhattan is higher than in the Bronx. Who cares. If you don't like the cost of living in your area, then you are free to move.

    What matters are results and the liberal results are a disaster so that arrogant ass that many liberals support is doubling down in those results. Regional cost of living matters because there is efficient use of money at the state and local level, not the federal level. Until Washington spending affects you, you are going to continue to support liberal economic policies.

    That's why it is called "freedom of choice", unlike the radicals who rant about how Obama is oppressing people (white Christians) because they are the ones who support 'real' freedom but for some reason those same True Americans apparently have little problem taking away other peoples freedoms.

    Do you have any evidence to support this?

    Right, in the real world or should I say the socialist world people are never responsible for poor choices made and it is always someone else's responsibility to pay for it. What is amazing is that socialists are about as incompetent as liberals they just don't realize it yet
