    I know I'm only spending 1-2% more for gasoline, auto repairs, tires, food, clothing, taxes, insurance, college tuition, postage, beer, electricity, cable, ammo, and vet bills so it seems perfectly reasonable to me. :rollingeyes:

    official 1.7%

    Medicare part B increase will probably get most of it.

    So, a possible 56 million people on the government teet are going to be voting to put more money in their pocket.

    Whats that thought that's so popular around here? Oh yeah: If you're on the take, you shouldn't be allowed to vote.
