December 21, 2012; Letter from the office Harry Reid and signed by 60 members of Congress to Mitch McConnell:

"Dear Congressional Leadership:

As Congress debates the issues surrounding deficit reduction, we urge you to support a thoughtful, balanced approach, taking into account the critical importance of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). While we recognize addressing the deficit requires difficult decisions, we must keep in mind the impact the federal investigations in biomedical research have on creating jobs, saving lives, reducing health costs, and strengthening the nation.

Discoveries arising from NIH-funding research serve as a foundation for the entire U.S. biomedical industry. NIH is a powerful economic engine, investing more than $31 billion annually in medical research for the American people (children with cancer). In fiscal 2011, NIH funded research supported an estimated 432,000 jobs in the U.S. and generated $62 billion in in new economic activity, more than double the taxpayer's investment.

After a decade of flat funding, the NIH budget is about 20 percent lower than it was in 2003. Sequestration will reduce NIH funding even more, by over 8 percent. These haphazard cuts threaten the health of sick patients (children with cancer)- along with the health of our nation.

We urge you to recognize the value of biomedical research, the jobs it creates and NIH funding. As you work towards a balanced approach to deficit reduction, please thoughtfully consider the economic impact of sequestration on federally-funded biomedical research."

I have news. You do not pay into Medicare. Medicare is funded through taxation. When you pay that medicare tax you are paying for people on the program -not into some mythical account.
Either quit running around calling everyone moochers & admit you are a moocher or just shut the F*CK up.
"real dumb"
Continue to dance and dodge. The fact remains a tax, just like Social Security, what mythical account it goes into is if no matter. As a matter of fact is goes into a trust. It is a tax, and I pay it. I have an account and the government pays my Social Security based on income, amount paid in etc. Collecting on monies paid in is not mooching.
One more thing do you ever post with out using profanity.

I wonder why Reid refuses to bring bills to the floor that have been passed by the House?
Because he knows e doesn't have the votes...unlike Boehner who won't present a bill because he KNOWS the bill presented to him by the Senate has enough votes to pass.

Feds Try to Close the OCEAN Because of Shutdown

Just before the weekend, the National Park Service informed charter boat captains in Florida that the Florida Bay was "closed" due to the shutdown. Until government funding is restored, the fishing boats are prohibited from taking anglers into 1,100 square-miles of open ocean. Fishing is also prohibited at Biscayne National Park during the shutdown.

The Park Service will also have rangers on duty to police the ban... of access to an ocean. The government will probably use more personnel and spend more resources to attempt to close the ocean, than it would in its normal course of business.

This is governing by temper-tantrum. It is on par with the government's ham-fisted attempts to close the DC WWII Memorial, an open-air public monument that is normally accessible 24 hours a day. By accessible I mean, you walk up to it. When you have finished reflecting, you then walk away from it.

At least that Memorial is an actual structure, with some kind of perimeter that can be fenced off. Florida Bay is the ocean. How, pray tell, do you "close" 1,100 square miles of ocean? Why would one even need to do so?

Apparently, according to an anonymous Park Service ranger,Weve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can...
