Obama has already screwed the seniors.
how did he screw the Seniors I what the SCOTUS case of Fleming Vs Nestor states that Individuals have no legally binding contractual rights to their Social Security benefits.

You worked hard your whole life and paid thousands of dollars in Social Security taxes. Now it’s time to retire. You’re legally entitled to Social Security benefits, right? Wrong. There is no legal right to Social Security, and that is one of the considerations that may decide the coming debate over Social Security reform.

Many people believe that Social Security is an “earned right.” That is, they think that because they have paid Social Security taxes, they are entitled to receive Social Security benefits. The government encourages that belief by referring to Social Security taxes as “contributions,” as in the Federal Insurance Contribution Act. However, in the 1960 case of Fleming v. Nestor, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that workers have no legally binding contractual rights to their Social Security benefits, and that those benefits can be cut or even eliminated at any time which is another reason Social Security be Eliminated Since the Federal Government has that authority and the Conservatives were right to be against Social Security since there is no Property Rights.

Is There a Right to Social Security?

Your cheerleading for Obumbles and a $21 trillion dollar debt, shows us exactly how much you care about our children. You don't.
We had a balanced budget & were on the path to paying down the debt.

What happened?

Dumbasses like you elected George W Bush & a Republican Congress.

Yes, the same ones that are running screaming through the streets today about debt actually voted to take us off that path & sent us down the road to debt & deficits.

Bush not only doubled the debt, he left office with the worst recession in 80 years that has driven the debt since.

If you really cared about the debt, you would quit voting for the party that made this mess - Republicans.

A mess that can't be remedied until we get our economy back on track.

Liar.

Obama did not expand the program.

Cell phones were added before Obama took office. Mainly because it was cheaper than installing land lines in some homes.

A non answer. Pollution might have caused many things, i've yet to be convinced it's caused sporadic warming in selected spots.
Your conclusion was the planet gets warmer after an ice age so therefore we can't have man made global warming.

The overall ave temperature has warmed.

As temperatures warm, some areas will get more arid, some insects will travel north infecting forests & crops, some diseases will take hold where they did not before. Ocean levels will rise. Severe weather can get more severe.

But hey,. you right whines just sit on your fat ass driving jacked up 4x4's & ignoring the science.

Your willful ignorance is tiring.
Obama is getting his $80 billion more from the rich, who's going to make up the other trillion dollars he will spend we don't have.?
And while we went to war & started expanding government, you f*cking idiots cut revenues thru massive unfunded tax cuts, set record earmarks, expanded medicare without funding it, made up a new war.

And keep showing just how stupid you are by blaming the CRA. My God, you people are idiots.

Congress writes the laws, dufus. Here, in the United States, the president can't write his own laws... you know, like ordering private insurance companies to cover birth control pills.... That has to be spelled out in some legislation that is passed by Congress.
You must be another dufus that never read the Constitution... or the applicable law. You and Obama have at least that in common.

Ah, a conservative beating the fetus drum as usual.

The problem is, you conservatives don't give a damn about the fetus after it's born. It can rot in an alley for all you care.

If you really cared about the rights of the living, you would have impeached Bush for starting an unnecessary war by lies which got 4,000 on our side killed, and tens of thousands of Iraqis.

Top 10 Most Dangerous U.S. Government Agencies

Monday, January 7, 2013

#10 - Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)- annual budget $8.5 billion: Their record of ignoring environmental damage and the health effects on humans from major events such as 9/11, the Exxon and Gulf oil spills to the worst case, Fukushima, is unparalleled. Rather than investigate and warn of real dangers, they have gone after farmers for dubious claims of water contamination, while treating milk spills as they should have treated oil spills. Even worse, the EPA has concluded that there is no law preventing it from doing "research" on Americans. A recent lawsuit over the EPA's work with airborne pollutants will put this claim to the test in Federal court. Their illegal human experiments could break the Nuremberg Code (source: The Washington Times)...

http://www.activistpost.com/2013/01/top-10-mo...

Also America, the EPA was ruled to be un-Constitutional thus un-Lawful in the early 1970's:

The Obama Phone?

Q: Has the Obama administration started a program to use "taxpayer money" to give free cell phones to welfare recipients?

A: No. Low-income households have been eligible for discounted telephone service for more than a decade. But the program is funded by telecom companies, not by taxes, and the president has nothing to do with it.

Welfare recipients, and others, can receive a free cell phone, but the program is not funded by the government or taxpayer money, as the e-mail alleges. And it’s hardly new.


History

The SafeLink program has actually been offering cell phones to low-income households in some states since 2008, not beginning "earlier this year," as the e-mail claims. But the program is rooted in a deeper history.

When phone lines were first laid out in the late 19th century, they were not always inter-operable. That is to say the phone service created by one company to serve one town may not have been compatible with the phone service of another company serving a different town nearby. The telecom companies themselves saw the folly in this arrangement, and so in 1913, AT&T committed itself to resolving interconnection problems as part of the "Kingsbury Commitment."

That common goal of universal service became a goal of universal access to service when Congress passed The Telecommunications Act of 1934. The act created the FCC and also included in its preamble a promise "to make available, so far as possible, to all the people of the United States, a rapid, efficient, Nation-wide, and world-wide wire and radio communication service with adequate facilities at reasonable charges.” There was a fear, expressed by telecom companies themselves, that market forces alone might encourage companies to pass on providing service to hard-to-reach places. This would both hurt the people who wouldn’t have service as well as existing customers who wouldn’t be able to reach them. So the new FCC was tasked with promoting this principle of "universal service."

This informal practice was codified when the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) was created as part of the 1996 Telecommunications Act to "ensure all Americans, including low-income consumers and those who live in rural, insular, high cost areas, shall have affordable service and [to] help to connect eligible schools, libraries, and rural health care providers to the global telecommunications network." The USAC includes four programs to serve rural areas, high cost areas, rural health care providers, and schools and libraries. Since 1997, USAC has provided discounted land line service to low-income individuals.(A more limited program to offer assistance to low-income individuals was created a decade earlier; the telecommunications act expanded and formalized it.) According to Eric Iversen, USAC director of external relations, the Universal Service Fund more recently began funding programs that provide wireless service, such as the pre-paid cellular SafeLink program mentioned in the chain e-mail.

The president has no direct impact on the program, and one could hardly call these devices "Obama Phones," as the e-mail author does. This specific program, SafeLink, started under President George Bush, with grants from an independent company created under President Bill Clinton, which was a legacy of an act passed under President Franklin Roosevelt, which was influenced by an agreement reached between telecommunications companies and the administration of President Woodrow Wilson.

Wilson Phones, anyone?

I did research this myself:
Obama has intentionally and willfully lied to the American public, yet idiotic liberals stick by him:
On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal.
In late October 2008, when I wrote here at National Review Online that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a “crackpot smear.” Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that “Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party.” I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press.
Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.
Rush and others were right, idiotic Topix libs were wrong, big surprise.
Are you really this stupid or are you just fcking with me?
