Bullshit. What part of "The increase in customer service quolity will
couse a DRAMATIC increase in sale's, which would EASILY cover teh cost of
the extra food. Higher quolity food and service for the customer, higher
paid wages for employee's, more business for the company. EVERYBODY WINS.

Does matter where it was cooked or who invented it. It's still Mexican.
Taco's, burrito's, quesadilla's, nacho's etc are all mexican food. Did you
fail spanish class at high-schooL? Those are all spanish word's.

Sure, Jerry, who else would you blame? It's always the "other people".
Now your adding some BS prejudice into the mix?

What exactly are you pointing out? The requirements are right
there on the page your quoted. It clearly disproves your claim
(and also disproves your new claim that *any* hourly wage
qualifies for map).


Who may qualify for MAP?

Austin/Travis county residents with family incomes at or below
100% of the Federal Poverty Index Guidelines, and who meet asset
guidelines. (If they have Medicaid, they will not qualify for
MAP.) This includes those Williamson County residents living in
the City of Austin.

Disabled or elderly individuals, if their income is at or below
200% of the Federal Poverty Index Guidelines, and if they meet
asset guidelines. (If they live in the City of Austin and have
Medicaid, they will not qualify for MAP. If they live outside the
City of Austin and in Travis County, they may qualify for limited
MAP benefits).

Travis county residents with Medicaid or Medicare are not eligible
for MAP benefits but may qualify for other programs that offer
reduced rate health care services.

What If I Don't Qualify for MAP?

Austin/Travis County residents who do not qualify for MAP and do
not have other funding may be placed on the Austin/Travis
CommUnity Care sliding-fee scale. They can receive medical and
prescription services at the CommUnity Care centers on a
sliding-fee basis. (City of Austin residents also can receive
emergency dental services at a City dental clinic on a sliding-fee
basis if a current patient in the CommUnity Care system.) These
services require a co-payment, based on where on the sliding-fee
scale the client's household income falls.

(The later is the category I fit into. I pay 50%)

So enough with the smoke and mirrors: speak clearly and
coherently and state the exact reason why we are wrong?

You sure have gone over the deep end since the last time I shared
a group with you a decade ago. I'm sorry to see hwo you've
completely fallen apart.

Damn. You really are that fucked up.
