stevetherobot: When it comes to taxes, Carson pushed for a flat income tax by citing the biblical concept of tithing. "Some people say, 'Well that's not fair because it doesn't hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made 10.' Where does it say you've got to hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot. We don't need to hurt him,"Except that people aren't complaining about not hurting the guy who made $10 billion. They are pointing out that a flat tax hurts the guy who made $10, while not significantly affecting the guy who made $10 billion.
WTFDYW: O fark. As soon as I say saw Hannitys name I said.... FARK YOUOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
DamnYankees: Has anyone ever been elected president without having either previously held some form of elected office or been a great military leader?
MacEnvy: So all the GOP needs to do to win is "black it up" a little?
jehovahs witness protection: We like the hell out of him, but people on the left HATE him because he isn't their expectations of what a black man should be. They are the racists. Anyone who disagrees with Obama is racist in liberals' eyes...even if they back another black person.
NFA: In fact he said Americans desperately need healthcare.
Elandriel: What the shiat? This guy is just Michael Steele with a scalpel. He's a cookie cutter republican bozo who has no concept of progressive taxation or proper methods to ensure the health of the nation.Being from poverty you would think he'd be more aware or the asinine nature of modern conservatism, but hey he's rich now. He really is the epitome of GOP candidacy - a purebred first generation "fark you, I got mine".
spiderpaz: Why would I want someone as egotistical as a neurosurgeon to be my President? How does that make them a good President? Is his qualification that he's black .... and that's it? So I guess the GOP still just doesn't get it and they're going to shoot themselves in the foot AGAIN.
jehovahs completely witless protection: [redacted]
Sergeant Grumbles: NFA: In fact he said Americans desperately need healthcare.But he said the best way to do that was with HSA's that could be passed on via inheritance, and that the government would still pay for the indigent. That sounds worse than what we already have. We need to get the free market as far away from healthcare as possible.
quatchi: HSAs could be a workable concept if done right.
Soup4Bonnie: quatchi: HSAs could be a workable concept if done right.Bullocks.
Mrtraveler01: HSA's are worthless.I'm in my mid-20's and even I don't have one because I'd rather have comprehensive insurance instead of taking a chance and having to pay out of pocket for my medical expenses if something bad were to happen to me.
MacEnvy: So all the GOP needs to do to win is "black it up" a little? You morons, this is why you will continue to lose. You honestly think it's about race and not about policy. You epic failures of human beings.
