I don't have an EBT card or a so called "Obamaphone". What I do have though, is Social Security and in another year, Medicare. 2 things that Romney wasn't going to guarantee if he had it his way. Of course, in this day and age, perhaps nothing is a 100% guarantee on anything, but I feel I picked the lesser of 2 evils. All of the ultra rich Republicans are going bonkers about having to pay a little more, yet they never gave a hoot about the middle class or poor, and that will never change. Poor losers they are.
No, all the ultra rich republicans weren't going bonkers, there's not enough of them to matter. I'm in a similar condition as you but I realize both programs are going broke soon, something must be done. Obama and the dems have shown their plan is to do nothing and let them run out of money. I also am intelligent enough to know we've seen this play before, at present in places like Greece, Spain and Portugal. You cannot have close to 50% of the population contributing nothing, it is just not sustainable. You also cannot have millions of uneducated mexicans clogging up the system and receiving funds illegally. Apparently it will take a complete failure of our economic system to get it thru the thick heads of the receivers.

Then they'll blame it on the republicans, likely Bush.

If liberals are so compassionate, I suggest they dig deep into their own pocketbooks.

Well, there's actually another election in two more years. It would be great if conservatives could take back Congress first. But what happens between now and then will determine that.

In the meantime, remaining the loyal opposition will have to do for now.

This system is not sustainable, if you don't see it, you're an ignoramus, a democrat, or both. Sorry, it's true.

WHO PAYS THE INCOME TAXES IN AMERICA? The list of Democrats complaining the ... We are going to take back America in 2012.~~~~~~~~~ Exclusive ...

allow me to share some enlightening data on who pays what income tax in the United States. We have a progressive (or regressive if you choose to look it the tax code correctly) in 2009, the latest available figures on income tax collection:

The top 1%(1.4 million) paid 40.42% on income of $2.8 trillion.
The top 2.5%( 5.65 million) paid 20.2%
The top 5%( 7 million) paid 60%
The top 10% paid 71.2% of all income taxes on income of $4.227 trillion.

Collected taxes :$794 billion

The bottom 50% of American taxpayers paid only 7.89 % of all Federal taxes collected !!

Gee, wouldn't that be We the People? I mean, we elected these clowns, right?

Bush, Clinton, Roosevelt, freaking Lincoln....the whole show has been just that.

Nobody bought a house they couldn't afford because the government, or Wall Street, or Chase Manhattan put a gun to their head.

WE did this, and WE need to change our ways.

Shit, are we Americans or WHAT?

Sour grapes make crap wine.

Audit the Fed.
Overturn the Patriot Act, the Citizens United Decision, and all accompanying legislation.
Legalize industrial Hemp.
Abolish the Electoral College.
And, by all means, let Texas secede. At the very least they can serve as a bad example, and at best their electoral votes will stop dictating southern politics.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Looks like there's a do-able plan on the table to put the brakes on this train before it goes over the cliff.

The Republicans have suggested to cap income tax deductables. Right now, the figure is at $50,000 but it could go lower. It appeals to Democrats and would bring in quite a bit of revenue mainly from the wealthy. The lower the cap, the more revenue.

Of course, budget cuts will have to be made as well eventually.

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

the rich get richer by stealing money from the rest...plain and simple and you are just one of their toadies

I would not have voted for Romney. Imo, he would have been worse for average Americans. As for Barack, we shall see. Companies are hiring again and unemployment has gone down some. I hope Republicans will work with the president in resolving this countries issues and fiscal matters. I just saw earlier that the talks were constructive and positive. I hope so.:)
"as for barack we shall see", did you sleep thru the last 4 years? Are you rip van winkle?

BO's idea of a business is someone at the top working their ass off for nothing and giving their employees and the treasury all the profit.

Well, it doesn't work that way and it damn sure doesn't in the companies ran by his rich and ultra rich supporters.

here's one who is a billionaire, courtesy of selling over priced, badly needed prosthetic's to the unfortunate.

Well, again, the numbers in the exit polls representing the people who overwhelmingly voted for Obama say Romney was actually right.

But he's allowed to vent a little, isn't he?

The Republicans know they have to reach out and get the right message out to those people too - with rhetoric that's toned down a bit and in a way that's more inclusive.

It's like Rubio said, you can't talk about the right message to Hispanics if they think you're going to deport grandma.

Oddly enough, hasn't Obama done a fair bit of deporting himself?
