Barack Obama, our next President

Taxes improve the common good. I don't consider myself worse off simply because of the tax rate. Only a real loser like you wouldn't see the benefit of better roads, schools, military, medical research, support for the needy, etc.
Only rightwing losers complain about how the government confiscates money and mismanages it. That's why it is IMPERATIVE that we Democrats continue to buy votes by giving away tax dollars to our base.

This is how we do it. A new study conducted by the CATO Institute finds that New York welfare recipients are eligible for more in benefits than teachers earn. The study says that a New York mother of two is eligible for $38,004 in welfare benefits, which is more than the annual salary of a New York entry-level school teacher.

But it’s not only New York. CATO also found that in many states welfare pays better than work. Hawaii had the highest wage-equivalent benefits for a mother and two children at $60,590. Seriously?! Is that great or what?

That’s not all! The study also found that “33 states and the District of Columbia offer welfare benefits that pay recipients more than an $8-an-hour job would. Twelve states and the District of Columbia offer welfare packages that pay better than a $15-an-hour job does.”

Wow. Talk about a system that can keep us Democrats in office! Now, I am not trying to say that people on welfare are lazy, but what incentive is there for unemployed Americans to try and get back in the work force? If you pay them more not to work than what they could actually earn at a full-time job, why would anyone choose to go and work?

Since the 1960s and the “war on poverty” programs started, the U.S. taxpayers have spent over $15 trillion on these anti-poverty programs. The federal government has 126 low-income programs of which 72 offer citizens cash or in-kind benefits.

If this is not a sign that keeping our base in the welfare system will continue to buy us votes, I don’t know what is.

If those Republicans want to preach about personal responsibility, and a strong work ethic, let them. We'll sew this up with all the new poor illegals we'll make citizens, keep them in the welfare system and voting for the redistributors.

How many Florida voters are registered in other states and vote in both places?
Well, we know of at least two, one a (D) and the other and (R) who got carried away during the 08 race.

I think Scott's purges have found about 15 or so illegal voters, five of which were charged with a crime. Given the number of Florida voters that's a pitiful waste of money given that each name investigated costs taxpayers about $5.

Years ago, there were plenty of dual voters and years ago the "nursing home vote" was a bullsht deal. Not these days though, with Florida's open records "sunshine laws" and voter lists available to the public at no cost by county and less than $20 for the state the fraud has diminished.

It might be different wherever the fk it is that you actually live however.

BTW Florida also sells it's drivers license lists, to any and all. They make terrific prospect logs__particularly if you Se Habla.

You still haven't told us why Obama's lawyers will say and do anything to avoid having to submit that obviously fraudulent document on the White House website as evidence. Perhaps because knowingly submitting fraudulent evidence will get you sent to prison?

Obama is a fraud. Obama's biological father is Frank Marshal Davis. Obama never attended classes at Columbia. Michelle had to surrender her law license to avoid being prosecuted in an insurance scamming crime. Obama is a muslim. Obama is a communist. Obama was indoctrinated of hatred for the United States and white people his entire life. Obama's homosexual lovers in Chicago were executed. Obama doesn't know anything about what goes on in government. His sole job is to read prepared script from a teleprompter and sign documents as ordered to do so.
Vallerie Jarrett is a communist and is the real president. The Democrats' Marxist welfare subprime home loan program caused the economy to collapse after two years oversight by Democrats.
You're right. Speaking the truth makes me feel a lot better.

Have you ever read any posts from the Florida gang? It seems to have dwindled down to Darwin and his alter female ego Silly Pants (Tired). Tired is just diet with a r in it. I guess they don't like me making fun of Disneyworld in Orlando, so they are slamming Texas and thinking everyone lives in a rundown trailer park, has no teeth, etc. The same old lame, tired digs.
BTW I was going to ask you about that. It's not the Florida gang however but the Topix Orlando Forum featuring the crazy ron threads.

And recently you__who is posting on twenty or so threads under a variety of names yet with the same isp location.

What's up with that?

Taxes remove money from the economy to support worthless government drones.
Roads and schools are state and local functions and medical research should be privately funded.
The needy can get a job, at least after Obama is deposed.
As a worthless government drone, I resent that!

Taxes will pay for the newest ACORN-like group to have jobs. They will be called Navigators.

The Obama administration released $67 million for Obamacare navigators (who have access to personal information) to explain how the new legislation works. But who exactly are these 'navigators'?

Apparently, Health and Human Services doesn't really care who they are so long as they show people how to enroll in the new Obamacare system.

Calling all Shameeka's and TyRones: Becoming a navigator only requires 20 hours of training with no background check or fingerprinting requirement.

In other words, criminals can easily sign up to become navigators.

Now, a number of Attorneys General from across the country are sounding the alarm, pointing out that navigators with access to personal information will only expose millions of Americans to identity theft and fraud.

But so what? Obamacare uses community organizers like the infamous ACORN will collect data from private citizens in order to get them signed up to various healthcare programs including the exchanges. And they'll be registering them to vote too. It's a win-win.

Republicans only grasp half of the concept 'all for one and one for all', they do however grasp the concept of 'me, myself, and I'

The concept of community alludes them.

In summation Republicans are selfish unless they can benefit in some way.

Perhaps you're familiar with some of his other work.
oh you libs are really stretching the lies today:“Lew, Nabors, Sperling and Bruce Reed, Biden’s chief of staff, had initially decided to propose using language from the 1985 Gramm-Rudman-Hollings deficit reduction law as the model for the trigger. It seemed tough enough to apply to the current situation. It would require a sequester with half the cuts from Defense, and the other half from domestic programs.

The sequester was to force Congress to do its job or the cuts would be made across the board.
Republicans said OK.
Then Republicans failed to act.
Why?
I thought they wanted spending cuts? So why didn't they do intelligent cuts on spending that would not hurt the economy or vital services?
When you figure that out, let me know.
House Republicans took steps to replace President Obama’s sequestration, passing bills on two separate occasions. Neither of which the Democratic-controlled Senate considered.

H.R. 5652, Sequester Replacement Reconciliation Act
H.R. 6684, Spending Reduction Act of 2012
