The arguments by which the Obama administration is countering lawsuits that seek to limit Obamacare subsidies to participants in "exchanges" established by states--a limit that is specified in the Obamacare law itself--have raised the outcome’s stakes. Administration officials argue that the plain, unmistakable, uncontested language of the Affordable Care Act (A

where on earth can you find an example of non-fiat money that is in common use and has an agreed-upon value?

While 'value' is an ebb-and-flow sort of thing, precious metals remain relatively more stable than the current regime of the dollar as the world's reserve currency, supporting the U.S. exporting its inflation abroad.
That is one issue where the country has a substantial basis to be ashamed.

I ask you third-grade level questions, to see if you have even third-grade level comprehension, and you generally show that you do not.

Oh Progressive moral superior! I throw myself at your feet and beg forgiveness for having the temerity to think that I could gainsay you! Wait: you're daft. Forget that noise.

Are you doing this just to waste other peoples' time?

I suppose, this far along, you can level a "wasting time" allegation. This is as laughable as the rest of your arguments. This is a mutual entertainment venue, and we're all consenting adults. If you're getting cramps in personal locations over anything on Slashdot, it's totally your own fault. There is no "victim" here.
But do stay beautiful, you.

Less snarkily, leadership, in general, is not about finger-pointing.

Believe it or not, there is plenty of finger pointing coming from both parties in DC. Your party is not by any means above it.

Indeed, that was my point, though the GOP is no more "my" party than the Dhimmicrats are yours.

I wish you actually presented an argument there, instead of just more snarkiness. I would love to actually discuss this matter with you but that statement does not indicate any interest from you to do so.

Seriously: it's all fiat money, and there is shag-all substantial economic basis for much of anything going on right now, in terms of monetary or fiscal policy. Question stands: WHY NOT just make us all millionaires?

You certainly haven't yet countered by demonstrating knowledge.

I shoot your third-grade arguments back to you, in kind, as I have time and inclination. Was there something else occurring here?
