They think you're a rube who won't notice how much money they're taking if they're slick about it, and so far you're proving them right. Don't feel bad; most people fall for it.

how do you know what i have saved?

you can beg to differ all you want. i know my scrilla, my chedda, my paper scratch (ie money) better than you do.

and again, i suggest you look up the difference between a tax an a bill.

And as for "taxes not being the same as a bill", try not paying it some time.
i guess anyone can say that food is the same as water because both can fill your stomach. only an idiot would beleive they are the same, though.

Excessive noise-to-bandwidth. Let me know when you come up with a counter argument.

Save your "scrilla"; toilet paper is fixing to get a lot more expensive.

Of course I have. I saw this coming down the pike years ago. Silver is the way to go.

Question is, what are you gonna do when the whole system goes tits-up in 2014? No more Obamacare (hehe with no bill) no more Social Security, no more Medicare, no more welfare, no more nuthin'?
It'll all be gone because the government is on a collision course with insolvency. So sorry, but you can't get blood from a stone. We tried to tell you that there's no such thing as a free lunch, but ya had to go and learn it the hard way.

I'm not so sure that it's health care reform as much as they need health insurance reform and guidelines.

It seems that insurance corporations have a lot of legal mumbo jumbo that can confuse the everyday man and as soon as it benefits them, they cut the everyday man or increase his/her premiums.
