    These idiots just now figured this out:banghead:

    Sixteen Democratic senators who voted for the Affordable Care Act are asking that one of its fundraising mechanisms, a 2.3 percent tax on medical devices scheduled to take effect January 1, be delayed. Echoing arguments made by Republicans against Obamacare, the Democratic senators say the levy will cost jobs — in a statement Monday, Sen. Al Franken called it a “job-killing tax” — and also impair American competitiveness in the medical device field.

    Just look at who these senators are....those fools!!!:mad:

    That would be a product of passing it and THEN READING IT.

    It is all going to hell in a handbasket and now they are waking up, it is going to get so danged bad that they will wish they had never been born. Those of us who have the skills to survive are going to be alright but the urban idiots are in for a real surprise.

    Believe me, they won't have to live through the winter with no heat. They won't have to choose between medicine and food. They won't lose their homes and wind up living in a cardboard box.

    But you and I will.

    That's very true Vern... but, in my opinion, much like a bandage on a hairy back - It hurts much less if you remove it quickly.
    Bad times are coming for everyone - much better to face it now.... and work to correct it as quickly as possible.
    Most folks won't even admit that there is a problem until that problem affects them personally....

    Lay in a big stock of ammunition. Buy powder in 8-lb kegs, primers in lots of 10,000. Make sure you have plenty of brass and bullets.
