    "No new taxes", huh?



    Short message from Blue Cross about Medicare which concerns EVERYONE!
    Don't say you were not told!
    MEDICARE
    Look clearly at the 2014 rate compared to the 2013 rate.

    For those of you who are on Medicare, read the following. It's short, but
    important and you probably haven't heard about it in the mainstream news:

    "The per person Medicare insurance premium will increase from the present
    monthly fee of $96.40, rising to:

    $104.20 in 2012
    $120.20 in 2013
    and
    $247.00 in 2014."

    These are provisions incorporated in the Obamacare legislation, purposely
    delayed so as not to confuse the 2012 re-election campaigns. Send this to
    all seniors that you know, so they will know who's throwing them under the
    bus.

    TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT...Check snopes.com and factcheck.com and you Will see that this information is incorrect. According to fact check the 2014 rate would be around $112.00...No rates that far in advance have been set.

    The people we can no longer trust are the RNC. The rich oil men and bankers are spending millions to stop the government from regulating them so special interests cannot steal the rest of us blind. In Pa. a Republican leader admitted that the new voter ID laws are to prevent Obama from getting reelected by making it harder so older people to vote. The super rich do not need guns to steal they have politicians to do it for them.

    Stilltrying,


    No, it's to make it harder for people who are not eligible to vote, to vote.


    Try not to think so much like a Kool-Aid drinking Occupier, for starters.

    OH Buzz, don't you know the "evil" "rich" Republicans are just tryin to keep people from voting LOL! What a bunch of B.S.! The reason that I.D.s should be required is to keep those from voting (WHO SHOUDN"T BE)! Without it there will be plenty of double voting, illegals voting,stolen votes, and all kinds of voter fraud! Nobody in their right mind would be opposed to having to prove who they are to vote! Of course, if it gets Obama reelected, who cares! Certainly not the left wing liberal pukes!

    You can't rent a car without ID.


    You can't buy a gun without ID.


    You can't get on a commercial aircraft, without ID.


    So...why, exactly, is showing ID to vote such a bad thing? I mean, I know all you commie pinko union democrats think it hurts "your side" in elections, but...I was talking about logical, _substantive_ reasons.


    Hmmm?

    buzzy, do you really think you're going to make any headway arguing with whom you're in discussion? You did read his post?

    But hey, if you want to waste more time. Ask how they have no problem showing an id to buy liquor/beer? Do you still have to show an id to rent a movie/video game from "Blockbuster"? Is "Blockbuster" even still in business?

    Think showing an id is bad. How come they have no problem with having to provide social security # on Form 1040 so as to receive EIC?

    Dam I would rather show my Indiana Id with no SS# on it than provide SS number.

    Bisi, I was about to reduce showing ID in simpler items but you beat me to it. You have to show ID for just about any transaction, what the hell is the big problem with showing it to vote. If you don't want to show your ID to vote then what are you trying to hide? Mike.
