The bill seems to be with a high value than a normal billing system. Maybe this is the solution for the health insurance too. implant dentar bucuresti

Illinois Introduced Something Similar to This  by Anonymous Citizen on August 6, 2007 
Illinois introduced something similar to this. It was most successful when combined with other cost effective programs like schools having textbook rental programs (for college students). Seems like a good idea, but the most you will save is $6 on a $100 purchase. If there is a cap like that, what is the point. What exactly are we trying to make affordable? Tax becomes unyielding when the cost is over $100.

the point of a tax cut is to keep EVERYBODY from paying a tax. either because the tax is punitive, or redundant.

the previous poster is truly exhibiting "liberal think" in this matter.
