I know they have lifetime tenure (which is totally absurd) but seriously? And names please.

What sort of levy do you pay in the US for your Medicare insurance? Is it a percentage of your wages, fixed or sliding?

2.9% payroll tax. 1.45% from me and 1.45% from my employer (which is also the Government so that's kinda weird). Then when you are eligible to receive benefits at 65, there are additional premiums.

Even with Medicare here in Aus, we still have to pay the doctor around AU$76, with a Federal government rebate of only $37, so nearly everyone is $39 out of pocket for each 15-minute timed visit.

It depends. For Medicaid the poorest pay $4 for a doctor's visit and $4-8 for drugs. For Medicare it's typically 20% of a pre-negotiated price. My private insurance is actually better than Medicare and costs less.

That’s the whole fucking thing. There’s no yeah but... it’s a regressive tax and regressive taxes by definition oppress the poor.

Single payer. Rich people pay for it. That’s it. Anything else can fuck off. I don’t care if it’s dems or repubs. I’m not young or healthy either.

Think about it. You lose your shitty “coverage”. You’re like that sucks but whatever. Here’s your bill for NOT having insurance. Talk about kicking a dog when he’s down! America has two choices: The fuck you in the ass party and the kick you in the nuts party.

I’m voting for eat shit you fucking cunts.

Nope. He's right and you're wrong. So there!

Why in the world would you think that? Millions of people all over the world are already aware of the climate change problem and are making progress against it. What's happening in the U.S. is not representative at all. You should check out some of the posts in the climate change discussion.

MAGA!!
So are you a fan of the original intent case and is say the 18th century when America was supposed to have been great?

I'm still not sure why judges using that idea formed more in the 70s & 80s is given this credit as being the history of how judges are credited.

This is purely opportunistic, any Republican leader would have done this. This isn't a Trump thing.

Obama didn’t get his pick, the left let it happen, the evangelical right jizzed all over their ballots.

RE: MAGA!!
Another thing that always pops into my head when I see the LoudDickHead post is a quote from Joseph Campbell.

“In choosing your god, you choose your way of looking at the universe. There are plenty of Gods. Choose yours. The god you worship is the god you deserve.”

Dude's just swapped one god for another. I'm with Joe, dickhead gets what he deserves. ... I still feel bad for his daughter though.

Still trying to figure out why an atheist, posting on an atheist site, is happy that conservative christian judges are being appointed to the supreme court..
