    It is the towering contempt that Obama and his minions show for their campaign promises that is setting new records.

    It's my business as much as what's under my Burka at the airport is your business.

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Do you acknowledge that you have absolutely no idea whatsoever whether or not I'm a socialist?

    Also, yeah, this kind of back-scratching in government is bad, no matter whose back is getting scratched.

    It's a little more forgivable when you're talking about members of the House, since they really are only concerned with their little patch of turf, but the President has no such excuse.

    I would love to see how that works. I'm sure they'll figure out a way to keep it "deficit neutral". Perhaps they could write in a law that says insurance will be provided free of charge by Santa Claus every year on non-denominational winter holiday.

    The fact of the matter is, the bill that has been passed by the house and senate includes specific exemptions for unions. And a bunch of other ridiculous sweeteners for particular states that they needed to buy enough votes to cram it through.

    Unfortunately there are a lot of folks like you who always want the supposed rich to pay more.

    Of course the fact that they're already paying more tax seems to be lost on many.


    Part of the problem with the way many think about these things is that it always seems to start with - how will we pay for this - rather than - why does the government need so darn much of our money.
