Paying extra for gas if using credit...

Hmmm...Taxation without Representation! Sam Adams would turn over in his grave. So why can gas stations charge extra if a consumer uses a credit card? This "newer" strategy that has become the norm over the last few years is absurd. Last time I checked, those extra fees incurred on businesses is called overhead. This needs to be fixed.

Oh Jean...I admire your excitement. But before you call someone "ignorant" maybe you should get a dictionary and understand what it means. That was uncalled for.

My point is that all businesses that utilize credit must pay. Why are gas stations turning it around on us? It sounds like you are a closet Democrat. Why do you hate foreigners? It sounds like you have a lot of anger. You need a role model. But I forgive you, since you voted for Obama and realized it wasn't a good choice.

The Tea Party needs to unite and work together if we are going to get America strong again. People like this just write a lot to sound educated but really are not.

Obviously you are not an accountant or know how to run a business. This is why most stations have a c-store for that overhead purpose so they have somewhere to account the cost of YOU using your credit card that they pay for the service. The gas portion doesn't make much net profit especially if you are not pumping much in gallons.

Try going and Auditing a stations c-store records that is owned by your crooked crooney FOREIGNORS that come over and buy a station or Liquor Store and get a GREEN CARD free for doing so & they must hire 4 or more employee's (Hense - their family members!).

They make sure their stations are NON-BRANDED (Circle K, 7-11, Extra Mile AUDIT C-Store RECORDS) so these FOREIGNORS pocket all the cash & taxes that come in. In turn they RIP OFF OUR Government & AMERICAN'S whom pay their taxes (these foriegnors do not pay their share of TAXES).

The government wants to increase tax payers rates.

How about making the IRS perform their government JOBS! Welfare Kings and Queens running our government sitting on the throne getting fat. The Rich stay Rich and the Poor stay Poor while the MIDDLE CLASS pays ALLl the TAX and the foriegnors get away with steeling from Americans.

Obuma needs to really CHANGE HIS AGENDA!

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
