    IT IS A TAX.



  • Suikostinger

    REM, is Obama still a Muslim?

  • Nick Czar


    CNN is still on the air ?

    Sola-dumb- Obrian and Pearce Morgan are living proof you can
    lead your network to ruin and still survive up to the last shovel of

    Please will some one stick a fork in this montage of mediocrity !

    While your at it, hire an english translator for the Sharpton show
    on MSNBC

  • Snap Tie

    @ REM: More than a tax. ” It’s A Big F***ing Tax ” Obama’s US Navy ‘Green Fleet’ Sets Sail…Not with conventional $3.60 gal fuel.. New Obama Bio Fuel @ $26.00 gal X 900,000 gal.. Glad Obama seems to think the $20,160,000 difference is worth the two months till it refuels..http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/02/us-usa-navy-greenfleet-idUSBRE86106X20120702

  • Coffee Steve

    These numbers look like the job numbers coming out Friday

    Not Good Hehehehehe

  • MWA

    No, he’s a “TAX AND SPEND IDIOT!”

  • Red

    It’s not a tax. Remember, when the same thing happened in MA. with “Romneycare”, Romney called it a “fee” so he could still claim that he never raised taxes during his tenure as Gov. Same difference.

  • Red

    Tax and spend liberals??? Like Reagan, who raise taxes 11 times in 8 years and increased government spending more than all of the previous presidents before him combined???

  • JR

    Well, according to the Romney campaign, it’s not a tax: http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/07/wh-gets-unexpected-backup-romney-camp-says-its-a-penalty-127863.html

    Like Santorum said during the primary, “Mitt Romney is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama on the issue of health care!”

  • Jeff

    Breaking News!! The GOP are bringing up contempt charges against the produce industry, forcing them to accept pizza sauce as a vegetable!!! Lol! I

    They demand that pizza sauce, “the newest vegetable” should count as a source of nutrition in our schools.

    GOP legislation at its finest!!

  • Jeff

    @ratboy, please talk to this guy maybe you will have better luck!! ;)

    Top Romney Adviser Breaks With Entire Republican Party: The Individual Mandate Is Not A Tax


  • Jeff

    Talk to this guy too, he doesn’t sound too confident about your nominee.

    HOST CHRIS WALLACE: You didn’t answer my direct question: If the Obama mandate is a tax on the middle class, is the Romney mandate a tax on the middle class?

    MCCONNELL: Well, I think Governor Romney will have to speak for himself about what was done in Massachusetts.

    Chris Wallace is about to be on my DVR list of he keeps this up!! :)

  • Matthew

    Yes, “tax and spend,” as in “Here’s what I want to purchase, and here’s how I’ll pay for it.”

    As opposed to, say, “I want to purchase this prescription drug plan, this farm bill, double DoD funding, create a massive new department, and invade two countries. Pay for it? Well, actually, I plan to pay even less than I was, even before taking these purchases into account. Don’t worry, I’m sure the next guy will figure it all out!”

    Romney has eight-point lead in swing states, says implausible CNN poll –

    Fully 20 percent of respondents said they could change their minds before November

    A new CNN poll appears to give Gov. Mitt Romney an implausible 8-point advantage over President Barack Obama in 15 swing states. If accurate, the poll would show Romney on track to a blowout victory in November.

    **LOL Give it a week and it will be reversed, then the week after reversed again. Patience grasshoppers, the polls will soon be more accurate.

  • Red


    Let the conservatives keep this talking point alive. As long as they keep beating a dead horse and make “Obamneycare” the main issue of the election, the more it will be sure to bite them in the ass them this fall, especially when millions of America start getting their insurance rebate checks. Independents are already starting to realize “Obamacare” and “Romneycare” are exactly the same thing and will be so turned off by all of their hypocrisy. Silly silly republicans …

    New poll shows most Hispanics identify as independent

    According to a Gallup poll released Sunday

    The poll asked 1,753 Hispanics about their political identification. Fifty-one percent identified as independents, 32 percent as Democrats and 11 percent as Republicans.

    When the respondents were probed for party leanings, 52 percent of Hispanics more closely identified with the Democratic Party and 23 percent identified with the Republican Party.

    “All groups show much greater identification with the Democratic than the Republican Party, though each succeeding generation of Hispanics is more likely to identify with Republicans than the prior one,”according to Gallup.

    NO,Dude…the CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS charge is for Erich “The Serpent” Holder
    for not turning over Papers that show the Planning of the Gun Running that
    was oreder by “The Serpent” that is responsible for 300 Mexican murders and the murder of (at least) one American, brave soldier Brian Terry.
    Just envision “the conversation” going on between OBlamer and “The Serpent”
    even as we speak…..use your fertile imagination!

  • Red

    “bite them in the ass this fall” – my bad.

  • Coffee Steve
