If you could only realize how confused you sound in trying to defend your stupidity.
There is a medicare tax on your pay check.
Look, I know people pay medicare taxes. We also pay taxes to the federal government that they use to run food stamps,welfare, etc. We pay taxes for unemployment.

When people use those programs. you dumbass right whiners call them moochers.

Since Medicare is a government run program funded by taxes, that means, according to you people, users must also be moochers.

You & old Eed cannot say using Medicare is not mooching just because you participate in it.

If you & Old Eed get to ignore than most users of these government programs paid taxes at some point, I get to ignore that Eed paid Medicare taxes.

Its only fair.

When you right whiners quit calling every user of a government program a moocher then I'll quit calling old moochin' Eed a moocher.

Why aren't you concerned that Karl Rove hasn't been put in jail for tax fraud for claiming his American Crossroads organization was non-partisan and then spending millions on political attack ads?
The IRS SHOULD have been profiling these criminal groups.
Has this even been mentioned on FOX?
Maybe he hasn't been charged because your "facts" are wrong. If lobbying was illegal-which it isn't for tax exempt charities-Red cross, ACA, AARP, et al would all be in jail.

It's Official: Those Bogus Email Leaks Came From Republicans

So here's what happened. Republicans in Congress saw copies of these emails two months ago and did nothing with them. It was obvious that they showed little more than routine interagency haggling. Then, riding high after last week's Benghazi hearings, someone got the bright idea of leaking two isolated tidbits and mischaracterizing them in an effort to make the State Department look bad. Apparently they figured it was a twofer: they could stick a shiv into the belly of the White House and they could then badger them to release the entire email chain, knowing they never would.

But it was typical GOP overreach. To their surprise, the White House took Republicans up on their demand to make the entire email chain public, thus making it clear to the press that they had been burned. And now reporters are letting us all know who was behind it.

This has always been the Republican Party's biggest risk with this stuff: that they don't know when to quit. On Benghazi, when it became obvious that they didn't have a smoking gun, they got desperate and tried to invent one. On the IRS, their problem is that Democrats are as outraged as they are. This will force them to make ever more outrageous accusations in an effort to find some way to draw a contrast. And on the AP phone records, they have to continually dance around the fact that they basically approve of subpoenas like this.

A sane party would take a deep breath and decide to move on to other things. But the tea partiers have the scent of blood now, and it's driving them crazy. Thus the spectacle of Michele Bachmann suggesting today that it's time to start impeachment proceedings.

The GOP's adults can't keep their lunatic fringe on a leash, which means it's only a matter of time until they make fools of themselves on all three of the pseudoscandals that are currently lighting up the airwaves. The Republicans have met the enemy, and it is them.

The White House’s release of the emails regarding the formulation of the Benghazi talking points has thrown ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl out of the frying pan, and into the fire. Karl’s exclusive report on Friday turned Benghazi into a huge political story for a few days, until CNN’s Jake Tapper scored a scoop that exposed Karl’s reporting as misleading, at best. The full email chain further refutes Karl’s reporting, and reveals that the source of the “emails” that he “obtained” lied right to his face.Somebody owes somebody an apology.

Karl was played by a congressional FOXbot.
So you have two choices -who wanted the talking points altered -the White House or the State Department? You have only so many players here and they all are departments of the Obama admin.

Who wanted to include the lie about the video tape?

Lame attempt to save. Both are put into a trust fund and yes we do pay a separate tax towards our Medicare-even is called Medicare tax specific for that program. How in the world could anyone who got a paycheck fail to notice that he was paying a Medicare tax?
PS Social Security is not an IRA were you withdraw only what you put in.
The amount you pay into social security basically determines your monthly benefit.

The amount you pay into Medicare is not relevant to your benefit.

I know its difficult but try real hard to see the difference.

A better question is why isn't the mass media covering five major stories that's impacting all Americans more? 1. Carbon pollution reaches historic highs, threatening human existence. 2. The devastating impact of sequestration on kids, cancer patients and first responders.3. Massive cuts to food stamps for the most vulnerable Americans.4. 1100 workers die in garment factory collapse in Bangladesh and most American retailers plan business as usual.5. 4,000 gun deaths due to gun violence since Newtown. http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2013/05/17/...

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Today Speaker of the House John Boehner issued the following letter to the American people:

Dear American People,

Yesterday, your hardworking House Republicans tried, once again, and failed, once again, to repeal Obamacare. And I really thought we had a good chance this time.

That’s because we were all united in our hatred for this infernal and takes-too-long-to-read law. Every last one of us cast his vote to strike it down, from crazy little Paul Ryan to that arrogant bastard Eric Cantor.


And I wish you could have seen the faces of those freshman Republicans as they voted to repeal Obamacare—so innocent, so full of hope and wonder. As I told them yesterday,“You’ll never forget your first time.”

It’s important for you to know that even as scandals swirl about the cesspool known as the White House, some folks in Washington are still working hard for the American people.

It was a gruelling week for me, what with popping up in front of the TV cameras every five minutes saying,“Who’s going to jail?,” plus trying to rid our land of Obamacare. But I don’t want your thanks. Save that for the dedicated House Republicans who have now voted thirty-seven times to repeal. You can’t put a price tag on that kind of performance. Well, actually, you can: it’s cost the taxpayers over fifty million dollars.

And worth every million, damn it.

One last thing. I know some of you are probably thinking that after suffering this latest defeat, we House Republicans are just going to take our bat and ball and go home. Well, there’s an old saying where I come from: the thirty-eighth time’s the charm.

Courage,

John Boehner

The type of tax exempt status these groups were seeking are for groups that advocate for social issues. Not political.

They can do political activities but this cannot be their major endeavor.

The Red Cross advocates for their health services , they do not endorse candidates (as far as I know), and no one ran for office on the Red Cross ticket.

The AARP advocates for older people. They push issues that effect older people.

So, you equate an able bodied person who could work with a disabled senior citizen?

PS -read your posts. You attempted to claim that Medicare was paid into the general fund. We all realized at that point that you did not know there was a Medicare Tax just like there was a Social Security Tax

Wow, This is Pretty Epic

Generally, once partisan, tendentious sources leak information that turns out to be wrong, nothing’s ever done about it. That’s for many reasons, some good or somewhat understandable, mostly bad. But on CBS Evening News tonight, Major Garrett did something I don’t feel like I’ve seen in a really long time or maybe ever on a network news cast. He basically said straight out: Republicans told us these were the quotes, that wasn’t true.

MAJOR GARRETT: Scott, Republicans have claimed that the State Department under Hillary Clinton was trying to protect itself from criticism. The White House released the real e-mails late yesterday and here’s what we found when we compared them to the quotes that had been provided by Republicans. One e-mail was written by Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes. On Friday, Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes.“We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation.” But it turns out, in the actual e-mail Rhodes did not mention the State Department. It read “We need to resolve this in a way that respects all the relevant equities, particularly the investigation.” Republicans also provided what they said was a quote from an e-mail written by State Department Spokesman Victoria Nuland. The Republican version notes Nuland discussing:“The penultimate point is a paragraph talking about all the previous warnings provided by the Agency (CIA) about al-Qaeda’s presence and activities of al-Qaeda.” The actual e-mail from Nuland says: the “…penultimate point could be abused by Members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings…” The C.I.A. agreed with the concerns raised by the State Department and revised the talking points to make them less specific than the C.I.A.’s original version, eliminating references to al-Qaeda and affiliates and earlier security warnings. There is no evidence, Scott, the White House orchestrated these changes.

I'm sure sonic will put the correct details up.
BTW at least 32 dead overnight in Sunni Mosque bombing in, where else, Iraq. Those folks are really loving their freedom!
And the surviving Boston Marathon bomber scrolled a note that their acts were vengeance for our wars on Muslims, saying when you kill one Muslim, you kill them all. Hell they're doing a pretty good job of killing each other off, we dont' have to do a damn thing.
