Isn't it funny? no one talks about people being forced to buy "Auto Insurance" mandated by the government. It's the same product for a different reason.
Why are insurances so expensive? because they know they can be because they don't have to sell their product, people have to go to them to get it.
Do you watch the news at all? Oh, I bet you watch Fox News, Do you even see what has happened in Washington? Or do you live under a rock? I don't argue with people about politics but I just can't believe you are so blind. Get the d---n republicans out of office, they are the party of no, they don't want to take care of anything It is those who hold office who are on social medicine.. Affordable health care is just that, affordable. Ask them to get the coverage we have.
Clean up the system, don't get rid of it. change laws allowing people who are capable to work to get State aid. Believe it or not, there are some people who need this legitimately. You don't throw that baby out with the bathwater.
Let me know how you feel when you are on your deathbed and you need the sacraments, forgiveness and a re-connection to your Father, then tell me it's all about the money.
Keeping in mind that it is the Holy Spirit who was sent to lead the faithful, Pope Francis is the best thing that has happened to our Church. When you grow up in faith and love, it is not about the discipline of the people, it's about the Love of His people.
When you Love your God, and you grow up in your faith, it is not about law, but about Love. Jesus said," The law was made for the people, not the people for the law". What you need to do becomes very easy to follow when you love your God with all your heart, you do it because He is so special to you, you wouldn't do anything to hurt Him, but you do everything you can to please Him.
John Boehner and Ted Cruz, " Mutt and Jeff" last comment. If you are not interested in keeping the Middle Class in this country, move to a third world country. You better look at what's really going on "behind the scenes" It might open your eyes a little.
I cringe when I hear these right wing buffoons talk about what the American People want. What the hell do they know about what the American People want???
They are so out of touch with the American People it's ridiculous. Why don't they get out there and ask what the American People want? Because it's not about that, it's about having their hands in the pockets of the rich, that's who they answer to, not the American People
You're are either very blind or very uncaring
I think that instead of speculating why this merge would not be appropriate for Dixfield, maybe there should be some research into the pros and cons. Rumford, Mexico and Dixfield have the population of what Rumford had when I was growing up. The burden is on 1/3 of the people who used to live here. Yet you are willing to throw in the towel without getting all the facts. Maybe the next budget meeting should be voted no on all articles and give you a wake up call. Dixfield pays almost two times the amount of taxes as Rumford and Mexico. When does it end? How many times do you think you can raise taxes before everyone moves out? We can't afford to stay here anymore. You have maxed out our ability to keep up with costs. This merger would be a relief, yet you leave it up to speculation.
I think this is the best idea yet. I think that because we have fewer people in the area, not too many people rushing to live here, we are down to skin and bones. We have to be sensible about our budgets just as we have to be sensible about our individual budgets. I also think this should have been done years ago. We have less people living here than when I grew up. Rumford, Mexico, and Dixfield have as many people as Rumford alone had. The tax burden is way too heavy.
It seems the States goings on is back firing. Dennis tried to commit suicide because he was getting so discouraged thinking he would never be heard, he tried to commit suicide. They called it "trafficking" go figure!!!
