What does that suggest to you ? It sure as hell ain't socialism it's about capitalism out of control. Unless you give the bulk of the population spending power then it will all self implode in the end. Capitalism always needs growth to survive otherwise it feeds on itself. Which is what that graph clearly shows.

Can you even begin to tell us that is Socialism or Commie land. It's a joke beyond words. In a true commie state the whole population shares in the countries worth not the 1%'rs, so you are talking to the hand on that one. The problem with tea baggers, it's really about culture shock. They crave this America that once was, well that is like the Italians craving the Roman Empire again. It's NOT going to happen. The tea party and this extreme right politics only came about after waking up one morning and finding they had a black President. That was the final nail in the coffin for them, and all this bull$hit about taxes and expenditure has just been a smoke screen. Their primary goal is to get rid of Obama & that's it! No if's or but's that is the only objective they want no matter what the previous guy did, this has to be worse. Despite the facts saying otherwise yet still day in day out, that same group are prepared to destroy their own country to achieve that objective and then call themselves patriots. hahaa If only you could see yourselves as others see you.

DC Crowd Pushes Through Barriers to WWII Memorial
WASHINGTON October 13, 2013 (AP)
Associated Press

A crowd converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday, pushing past barriers to protest the memorial's closing under the government shutdown.

Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, along with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were part of the demonstrators.

Cruz and Lee are among the tea party-backed lawmakers who refused to keep the government operating unless President Barack Obama agreed to defund the nation's health care overhaul.

"Let me ask a simple question," Cruz told the crowd of hundreds that gathered beginning at 9 a.m. "Why is the federal government spending money to erect barricades to keep veterans out of this memorial?"

Black metal barricades have lined the front of the memorial since the government closed Oct. 1. That's when more than 300 National Park Service workers who staff and maintain the National Mall were furloughed.

As the crowd entered the memorial plaza, they chanted "Tear down these walls" and "You work for us." They sang "God bless America" and other songs.

"Our vets have proven that they have not been timid, so we will not be timid in calling out any who would use our military, our vets, as pawns in a political game," Palin told the crowd.

The memorial has become a political symbol in the bitter fight between Democrats and Republicans over who is to blame for the shutdown. Earlier rallies have focused on allowing access for World War II veterans visiting from across the country.

Sunday's rally was more political. A protest by truckers converged with a rally by a group called the Million Vet March at the memorial. Participants cut the plastic links between metal barriers at the National Park Service site and pushed them aside.

Later, some protesters carried metal barricades that look like bicycle racks from the memorial to the White House and stacked them up outside the gates, confronting police in riot gear. Some protesters carried signs reading "Impeach Obama."

Police moved the protesters back to set up barricades between the crowd and the White House gate. Some protesters chanted "shame on you" at the officers.

An armored police vehicle also was sent to the World War II Memorial as people lingered there.

District of Columbia police said the crowd was dispersing by 1 p.m., about four hours after the protests began. U.S. Park Police said there had been one arrest at the Lincoln Memorial for assault, but it was not related to the protest, said Lt. Pamela Smith.

Jim Weller of Allentown, Pa., said he came to protest "to stand up for my rights."

"My father was a World War II veteran, shot down in the Philippines in 1945, and for them to shut down this memorial is absurd," he said.

Cindy Good had a message for lawmakers.

"They need to listen to the American people," she said, "and try to work together in Congress to get this whole thing worked out."

After the protest, U.S. Park Police worked to secure the World War II Memorial again, and Smith said they were still closed because of the shutdown.

The Park Police officers, who have been guarding the memorials amid protests over their closure, are not being paid during the government shutdown.

HOW CAN YOU PEOPLE STILL SUPPORT OBAMA AND DEM TRASH THAT SHUT OUT WWII VETS TO VISIT THE MEMORIAL FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM????I SAY VOTE THIS TRASH OUT 2014 AND 2016!

If you keep singling out social welfare as some sort of hindrance for the rich not to become richer you are deluded. A wealthy person needs the vast population buying their product or services to become wealthy in the first place. Without that they have NOTHING, well this is what the country provides. Pay your taxes and ask can you pay more to be grateful for this opportunity. Just remember the more spending power you give the greater population the richer you get. That is what capitalism is all about, not shrinking the spending power to only the 5%'rs. You are on a downhill slide to nowhere trying to protect that BS.

Save Money on Obamacare — Get Divorced

It's being called Obamacare's "wedding tax." Provisions of the healthcare reform bill discourage marriage — and encourage divorce.

According to a report by PJ Media, married couples can save thousands of dollars on healthcare premiums if they get a divorce and continue to live together.

That's because Obamacare is designed to provide healthcare benefits that are substantially more generous for lower-income people, and the bill counts a married couple's income jointly.

Using a calculator from the Kaiser Family Foundation, PJ Media's Tom Blumer gave the example of a 60-year-old married couple with no children in the household, with identical annual incomes totaling $62,041. Obamacare premiums rise sharply when combined earnings hit $62,041.

If they remain wed, their net premium next year would be $16,382. But unmarried individuals can earn up to $45,960 before losing Obamacare's subsidies, so if the couple divorces and each reports an income of $31,020.50, their combined net premium would be $5,354. That's a savings of $11,028 next year.

Blumer also offers the example of a 40-year-old couple with two children and incomes of $70,000 and $23,000.

Their combined income is $93,000, and subsidies disappear at $92,401 for married pairs with two children. Their combined premium would be $11,547 next year.

But if they divorce and give custody of the children to the lower-earning spouse, one spouse's premium would be $3,857 and the other's would be $460, for a total of $4,317. That's a savings of $7,230 next year.

Blumer observes: "Clearly, many couples who are considering marriage, especially after several years of seeing formerly married couples regress to cohabiting, will look at Obamacare's 'wedding tax' and say,'never mind.'

"The effect on society will be incalculable, and certainly not for the good."

However, the law in many states says a couple cannot cohabit indefinitely and still claim not to be married.

The IRS could find those couples who are claiming they are not wed for healthcare subsidy purposes, leading to this scenario, according to Blumer: "Those caught and punished by the IRS carrying out its new role as the de facto 'marriage police' could get hit with multi-year bills for undeserved 'tax credits' running into tens of thousands of dollars."
