It's good that health insurance costs for Americans will rise 116% per person in 2014 because of the Affordable Care Act, amirite?
@Len Is being passive aggressive your "thing"? I don't see the appeal.

As if I'm here to impress you. Don't know you, therefore I don't care :)

@VicZinc According to Rush?

No, according to real life and experts. My health insurance premium has already increased by almost 300% (individual) since the passing of the Act. It is expected to increase an ADDITIONAL 116% in 2014.

I think it should be mandatory that a woman take time off from work when her child is born, and I think the employer should have to pay for that time off.

Why should the employer pay for her personal decision? Nobody made her have a kid.

Considering how many unplanned pregnancies there are and how much the "average" pregnancy costs an insurance company, I think insurance companies would actually save money if they just gave contraceptives away.

That's not how insurance works.

I think we need a cap on gas prices. As long as gas prices continue to rise, the cost of everything else continues to rise. (Well, except for our paychecks... which is precisely the problem.)

What a dumb post. Obviously a product of the American school system.

Some people say that single sex schools help kids focus by removing the opposite gender and thus, removing a distraction. I disagree. I think single sex school actually promote distraction by not allowing opposite genders to interact and thus, intensifying curiosity about the opposite sex.

I'm gay, so I'd be cool with an all guy school. Ha.

It's so cute how 20 different states are trying to sucede from the United States. Nothing quite says "Mericah" like quitting your nation because you lost.

All 50 states and DC have submitted petitions to secede.

Bill Clinton was the best US President of the last 50 years
When someone is released from prison he is said to "have paid his debt to society" - but in reality it DOES mean that "society" don't regard the debt paid, amirite?

That, and society also paid via taxes to keep the criminal in prison. So society gets fucked over more than once.

99.99% of girls need to get over themselves and realize they're not as great or as special as they think they are, amirite?

I support Barrack Obama not because I agree with all of the changes he has made, but that he has had the determination and courage to address the problems of a nation and has kept his word on the decisions he's made. amirite?

Kept his word? Have you not been paying attention?

It's interesting to think about it; if thousands and thousands of stores buy enough merchandise to fill thousands of shelves each, and still turn a profit, than Americans probably buy way too much stuff, amirite?

A lot of people buy beyond their means, but that doesn't mean everyone does. Example: If one person among ten buys 3x as much stuff as each of the other 9, that is going to skew the numbers.

It also depends on what kind of stores you're talking about. A lot don't turn a profit - many just break even. They don't take all your cash at the register. There are taxes to pay, leases to pay, logistics to pay, merchandise to buy and fill their shelves, employees to pay, etc.

Your post could easily be applied anywhere around the world.

This might seem bad, but why don't homeless people, who don't want to be homeless, just commit a crime that gets them sent to prison? Then they would have a place to live, and three meals a day. Amirite?

Prison would be more stressful and dangerous. And cost us more to house them. That, and I used to work at a homeless shelter/crises center - many aren't really interested in "help" beyond the basics and are pretty content with their situation. Not everyone wants to be "saved."
