Hey Rhys Maybe $5.00 for Ski Corp employees, $6.00 for pass holders, $8.00 for the rest. Hard to find a great sandwich for that amount around the base. Lots of Ski Corp employees in line at Geano's on a daily basis. Maybe some go for the Gyros. I guess it depends on where ski corp let's her park. Wonder what the Hungry Dog pays for their little corner by Christie and how they do. Nice of us to brainstorm for her eh.

Hey Rhys, Not sure on your math. are you making $5 per gyro or selling them for $5. Not sure what food costs + overhead are all in per gyro. You might have a handle on that so any guess how much to price the gyro to make $5. Also not sure when the snow is falling, the wind is howling or temps darn cold, how many gyros will be sold. Now, I have had their gyros and they are darn tasty so should they end up at the base I would be an occasional customer.

Dan S. says the deficit is being reduced. That of course is false. The CBO fiscal year has ended. Dan S. did you know it was Oct. 1 to Sept. 30. So the totals are on the board. Here is a pretty picture of the US surplus/deficit as a percent of GDP. http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/graph/?g=QFO Please note that it is not a surplus, which is what it would need to be for you to be correct that the deficit as a % of GDP was being reduced. If you want to state that the deficit as a % of GDP did not grow as much in fiscal year 2014 as the last four years you would be correct. But you are absolutely incorrect when you mocked Jerry by saying "Maybe you can do the deficit reduction calculation in your spare time. I'm a little busy. I was responding to the accusation that the deficit wasn't being reduced."

John B. Is this the Gruber guy you are asking Dan S. about? a panel discussion captured on video, Gruber explained that the individual mandate is not a tax, and was presented as one in order “to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes.” Team Obama deemed the deception critical because “if CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies.”

Gruber expanded on the theme of deception:

In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.

Or this. Gruber stated: “I think what’s important to remember politically about this is if you’re a state and you don’t set up an exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits.”
