    Just using CT's logic.

    So, you don't pay taxes, so you're not real concerned about how tax dollars are wasted on the green agenda. Yes?

    People that have a tax debt every year aren't real concerned about how tax money is wasted on bull****. My tax bill for '09 was 9 g's and the Libbos want to make me pay more. What was your tax debt for '09? Did you even have one, or did you get a refund?

    Ah I see what you were going for. Except I do pay tax dollars and I'm thrilled with the green agenda. In fact, I'd support higher taxes to encourage it.

    Having a refund doesn't mean you didn't pay taxes. It means you gave the government an interest free loan for a year, ie you overpaid.

    single parents many live on government subsidies, disadvantage to the children
    abortion morally bad for society and not healthy for the unborn
    laying on sofa, watching TV causes obesity
    not working, by choice not harmful I guess, just not helpful
    bars can lead to arrests from fights or DUI
    accepting subsidies just because you qualify drag on tax payers
    Having Dish network while on welfare just not right if you can't afford food and rent on your own.
    wasting food just wrong and well, wasteful.
    finding loop holes to avoid taxes, legal but a simpler tax system would be more fair to those who can't find or use them.
    letting your pets reproduce just wrong in every way unless you are a reputable breeder. fill up shelters, strain on animal control
    wasting all day on DP
    could lead to mental breakdowns and can cause obesity.


    but the childhood obesity problem deserves 17 more gov. programs billions of dollars, tons of regulations, because it's costly to our healthcare.
    Oh, and it's a danger to our national security.
    It's breeding a cradle to grave mentality.
    Government needs to get the hell out of the way and let people live their lives, and raise their own kids.
    Stright sex can cause (or spread) STDs.

    But, no, there is no breeding of the cradle to the grave mentality in working together to solve problems. We may question how many we need, how effective the are or aren't, or if something else might work better, but let's not paint it as something it isn't.

    Here's another indictment of the bill and a very telling commentary.

    "We can’t just leave it up to the parents." --Michele Obama
    IOW, the government has to step in and do it for us. Just more nanny-statism.

    Not sure it does, but pizza (and other cheap food) is cheaper than healthy food. So, i suspect it will cost more.

    I'm not sure what you mean by a tax debt. Did I owe money at the end of the year? I might not specialize in taxes, but I am an accountant. It's not that hard to break even.
