One of us can't - that's pretty certain
Where did I ever say that the ACA took money from war?
. In the former post, you present it as a choice - you'd rather it go
to "health care" that have it go to war. that is the choice you yourself present in that post.It does not take military expenditures and apply them to
"health care", nor does it apply much of anything at all to "health care". You seem to be confusing a windfall for insurance companies with actual
health care. "Health insurance" is NOT "health care".
In the latter post, you flat out say:
How do you do math?
You wanna pay for war and no medicine.
I wanna pay for medicine and no war.
I am not sure why you feel it does nothing for the citizen, that is not true. In fact I cited some of those things. the NPE, 80% rule, 26 year child
None of those apply to me at all, since I am not a consumer in the insurance lottery. I don't care what you do, but you won't be forcing me to
and it gives me a better chance of not catching something when I go out in public because you know...there should be fewer not sick people touching
things I touch.
How does that work? Which section of the PPACA (NOT the "ACA") makes illness illegal? What part of it provides actual health CARE to avoid illness?
So if you keep the taxes paying for war, and pay for war, then ADD another tax to pay for nothing, it's STILL "more", as in "more
taxes", irrespective of the fact that it provides nothing in return. It does nothing to diminish war spending, or redirect that money into providing
health care. It just adds another tax. You know, MORE tax.
I do not think you understood what you just replied to. I know that x+y= more than x when y is a positive value. What are you arguing?
That an added tax is an added tax, not a redirection of existing taxes. You didn't REALLY have trouble figuring that out, did you? It's pretty
So the answer is to steal MORE?
To which you replied:
How do you do math?
Straight now? Or are you still confused?
You do not pay taxes or you pick and choose what each and every penny goes to?
I invite you to audit me and find out.
How would that tell me where all of your tax dollars go?
Who collects YOUR taxes? Any I may pay would go to government - federal, state, and local. Now that we know where mine go, perhaps you need to find
out where yours go. If they levy a new tax for a specific purpose, I'll assume they intend to use it for that purpose, and pay or not accordingly.
Since this new tax has NO stated purpose other than penalizing the poor for not engaging in commerce with private entities, I'm not going to pay it.
Is that simple enough?
Is there some sort of relevant thought hidden in that sidetracking gibberish?
Yes but not for comprehension-ally deficient I guess.
I just wanted to bump that to note that YOU couldn't explain it, either.
Then you think in meaningless gibberish. It will be difficult to hold a rational conversation with that, but I'll try.
Oh you can skip the parts at the bottom if they are too tough for you unless I go on to explain it but you cannot wait.
You have two sets of standards in your America. One for you and one for me.
Oh hey look! Yet again if you just stopped and read all the way to the end you got your answer again. I have to ask why a smart guy like you reads a
paragraph and then interrupts twice to ask questions that are answered at the end?
Yeah... technique leaves something to desire when you "answer" in the next post after the question was asked, then try to jam it into the original
response as if you'd answered it there.
No. I have one standard. I will take care of myself in the best way I see fit, and allow you to do the same - but I expect reciprocity,
that you will leave me alone to take care of myself as I am willing to do for you.
Sorry but I live in society.The founding fathers understood what that meant
What does that have to do with taking care of yourself? You think that's mommy government's responsibility so you don't have to? I live in a SOCIETY,
not a nursery.
