    It is amazing that we have two examples in recent history.Bill Clinton raised taxes on the wealthy only modestly and the budget became balanced and we had a surplus. Bush cut taxes for his rich buddies and left with a doubled defecit. Truth is,we can either cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires or we can take care of the elderly and the less fortunate.We cannot do both.
    I never thought I would see an election where two millionaires were running on the same ticket with the center piece of their campagn being that if elected they will give themselves a tax break.If Paul Ryans tax proposals were in place in 2010 Mitt Romney would have paid less that 1{one} per cent in taxes.

    We have been writing checks against an empty account for decades.

    We need to fund the account with revenues through putting people back to work.

    Obama manipulates people. His whole campaign. & presidency has been a huge "closing argument", (he's an attorney mind you), creating a picture that is manufactured with overly simplistic thinking, COUNTING on the ignorance of people to not understand how Lyndon Johnson managed to get Congress to work together to pass Civil Rights, yet he can't get ONE vote from a democrat on HIS budget! Why didn't he "tax the rich" as a solution in year 1 or 2 when he had COMPLETE control of Congress? B/C it would not have done sqaut & he'd have NOTHING else and would have to be accountable for that failure!

    First of all I do not receive S.S. and never will. I'm 17 quarters short of the required 40, as for Medicare I pay over $2,700 a year. You as a liberal should like it if I received something I did not pay for.
  • my2cents frank 2012/08/18 18:43:02 (edited)
    my2cents
    If you didn't contribute enough in payroll taxes to qualify for social security, then you didn't contribute much to the Medicare program you now enjoy. $2,700/year is ONLY $225 per month! That is one helluva deal for a 67-year-old! Try pricing that coverage on the private market, it would be several times that, if you can get it at all.

    The federal government is currently paying 48% of your health care expenses. You're getting a lot more in benefits from Medicare than you ever paid into. That is the definition of welfare.
  • frank my2cents 2012/08/18 19:29:47

    Sorry but I daid more into Medicare when I was working then you do now.
  • my2cents frank 2012/08/18 19:53:53 (edited)

    Nope, can't be possible. If you didn't work long enough to qualify for SS, then you didn't work long enough to pay for what you're taking out of the Medicare system. Conservatives usually think "welfare recipient" only applies to other people, not themselves.

    P.S. Don't worry, the Ryan plan for Medicare intends to make honest people out of those like you. You'll be able keep your federally subsidized Medicare welfare program, but those coming after you will only get a voucher to offset the private market rate.

    And if Obamacare is repealed, you'll be able to pay for the prescription donut hole out of your own pocket again. So much for you freaking freeloaders!! LOL!

    Look stupid the reason I don't qualify for S.S. is that I only worked in the privet sector for 5 years. I worked for the government for 31 years and then had to retire because of medical reasons.

    Oh, so you have a BIG FAT GOVERNMENT PENSION?! Dude, this just keeps getting better and better!

    And I suppose you belonged to a UNION as well?
  • frank my2cents 2012/08/20 16:11:58
    frank
    Why join a union, they can't argue benefits, wages, or anything else, they are useless. Ask the Air Traffic controllers that lost their job when they walked out on strike when Regain was president.
  • my2cents frank 2012/08/20 16:20:15 (edited)
    my2cents
    Just answer the question, did you belong to a public union? You have the big fat government pension at taxpayer expense, so you probably were a member of one. Weren't you?
  • frank my2cents 2012/08/20 16:43:33
    frank
    NO I WAS NOT. UNIONS ARE WORTHLESS.
  • my2cents frank 2012/08/21 15:44:18
    my2cents
    You do know one doesn't have to voluntarily join a union to belong to one, in most cases union membership isn't voluntary. You want the job, you're a member of the union, whether you like it or not.

    And you should know the air traffic controllers got fired by Reagan because it was specifically stated in their contract that they were not allowed to strike, and they did anyway. They violated their contract, that's why they were fired. If not for that, Reagan wouldn't have been able to touch them.

    What did you do for the government for 30 some years?
  • frank my2cents 2012/08/21 16:00:11
    frank
    All federal workers know that they cannot go on strike without losing there job, what the ATC really wanted was after working at a busy airport and being promoted to a high GS level they wanted to move to a real small airport with very little traffic that only required a lower level GS worker. That was one reason they went out on strike.
    I myself was a tech rep for the Navy, on call 24/7 and I did receive those phone calls at 2 or 3 in the morning and on an airplane at 8: oo AM
  • my2cents frank 2012/08/21 19:24:42

    So you have a government pension, but do you get Medicare or VA benefits, since you worked for the Navy?

    Okay, so you were a government employee for over 30 years working for the government-created military. So you had 30 years of employment PLUS your undoubtedly generous taxpayer-funded pension as a result of THE GOVERNMENT, not the private sector. Correct?

    My taxpayer money is being used to fund YOUR PENSION, that doesn't seem to bother you one bit. Private sector employees don't get pensions any longer. And my taxpayer money is being used to provide you with government run medical care, AKA Medicare, in your retirement as well. You probably love Medicare like all seniors do.

    Dude, you are sitting pretty in retirement, wanting for nothing, all because of a lifetime of GOVERNMENT EMPLOYMENT AND GOVERNMENT SOCIAL PROGRAMS.

    It never ceases to amaze me that the biggest recipients of government largesse are often the most verbal against anyone else getting it.

    As I answer this China and Japan are on a collision course. Israel and Iran are about to go head to head. Syria is slaughtering it's own. Russia is sailing it's submarines carrying
    nuclear weapons in the Gulf of Mexico at free will and negotiating building a Naval base
    in Cuba. The DHS has just purchased a record supply of ammunition. The National Weather Service has also purchased a large supply of ammunition?? China is pulling it's money out of Wall St and American banks. The DHS has started flying spy drones across
    our homeland and is spying on us. FEMA has built hundreds of "Emergency camps" in every State equipped with thousands if not millions of coffins capable of holding up to three bodies each. Every move you make is monitored and filed including this comment.
    You can vote with out an ID but try to travel without one. All this information is out there if
    you pay attention but the average American is totally ignorant of what is going on. They
    see Obama and believe every thing is fine. Just leave it up to him. Buzzy
