Citrate1007: This is what conservatives really think.
AdamK: who the hell spends $400 on lobster?
Whodat: Cool. Since I didn't request that particular service I shouldn't have to pay for it.
CPennypacker: lawboy87: sprawl15: [i.imgur.com image 327x387]sprawl 15,Perhaps I'm missing the "joke" but you do know that purported receipt was proven to be phony long ago right? The NY Post, even retracted the story and noted that Michelle Obama wasn't even in NYC that day, much less staying at the Waldorf.If you think you can get Bollinger for $44 room service at the Waldorf Astoria I have a bridge or two to sell you. They charge more than $20 for a Bagel.
ghare: impaler: Read my lips, no new fees for services.Rich people LOVE fee-for-service. It cuts down on having to associate with the poors.

tricycleracer: Arkanaut: Vlad_the_Inaner: It's a fee, because the payment required is exactly proportional to the work and effort required to perform the task, in each particular instance.Oh wait.Its not.it's proportional to an accessed property value.It's a tax.Shhh. Maybe if Obama can convince the Republicans to charge a "social insurance fee" or some bullshiat "instead" of a tax, they'll be able to come to an agreement on this whole fiscal cliff deal."Fee" sounds like money that is helping a Job Creator put people to work."Tax" sounds like money that is helping a drug using welfare queen pay for her two Cadillacs.

KarmicDisaster: Citrate1007: This is what conservatives really think.It is true. In Wisconsin Walker wants to make the roads toll roads, because that "isn't a tax", you don't "have" to use the roads, you could walk.
HeartBurnKid: Ahhh... the Romney method.
HotWingConspiracy: I can't believe that thing got any play at all, it had to be put together by someone who has never dined anywhere there wasn't a special going on.
Speaker2Animals: monoski: Technically she is correct. My township has all sorts of "fees" that I have no choice to opt in or out of so I tried to declare these as taxes paid. The accountant said, No.If this woman ever gets re-elected, the voters deserve every stupid fee they have to pay.

sprawl15: urbangirl: Isn't this exactly the same thing Rmoney did while guv of massachusetts? Allowed him to later brag about not raising taxes...Now, with video goodness.
HotWingConspiracy: In case anyone has missed it, republicans don't cut spending, which means they have to find money somewhere. So now you get fees, and the shiat eater you just voted in gets to run on not having raised taxes. And you'll vote for them again, because taxes.
qorkfiend: I would also guess that "fee" sounds voluntary, but "tax" is mandatory.
Superjew: Maybe we could charge those lucky few who made millions on the backs of American workers and America's multi-billion dollar infrastructure a few "fees", too./naw, just kidding. they "earned" it all by their ubermensch selves.
Jackson Herring: Citrate1007: This is what conservatives really think.This is literally true. Mort Roomney raised "fees" by millions of dollars while he was governer of MA.
