    Awesome. Congress has funded the war in Korea in every year since it began in June 1950. It continues to pay for it today.

    .

    just pointing out, since Republicans means-test the benefits in order to reduce their expenditures, the wealthy are actually losing the most

    well, Congress has specifically approved each one as well. that's what's so breathtaking about the Obama decision to ignore the War Powers Act - his defense agrees that it is Constitutional, that Presidents should seek the authority of Congress within so many days, etc..... it's just that that kind of stuff doesn't apply to him.

    Granted. The one term president Obama, quite possibly believes he is our king. For the sake of the nation he must be defeated. If he succeeds the nation fails.

    Making a personal attack on someone does not translate into you being able to show that the act of death is taxed anywhere in the USA.

    Calling the death tax what is is makes sense to me. Someone dies. The government, like circling vultures, swoop in to pick the dead bones clean. It is abhorrent.

    Not really, because you want to end tax cuts, so then we need to add them back onto the rolls. You don't seem to understand the concept behind the tax cuts.

    They do not exist in the real world either.
