As one woman put it on the video I posted last night: With free money, why would anyone want to work in America?
Good question.
And you're right...100%.
Thank you. Let's face it the democrats/progressives want a dependent populace. They will do anything to achieve that goal. the country is doomed.

There s nothing to say that Congress could jus eliminate the whole program or double the tax rate.
If you were 20 years old, 180 pounds, fit, eating 3000 calories a day but burning off enough so that you only gained two pounds a year.
If you kept this up for 75 years taking into account no changes were made you would be 150 pounds heavier than you are now.
Are you fat now because in 75 years if you make no changes you will weight 330 pounds?
With the Democrats' version of government, there is no such thing as a funded liability. You clowns can't even get a budget together. If you can't get a budget together, you don't have a plan. If you don't have a plan, nothing is funded. It's all seat of the pants government.

Sooner or later, the inescapable fact that money doesn't grow on trees will be impossible to ignore.
What's the Democrats' plan for when they have to face that fact? Martial law?

If anything is offensive it's the Democrats using a jackass as their political symbol. It's demeaning to all jackasses everywhere! They should change their symbol to a rat! A disease spreading filthy RAT!

The current impasse in Congress appears to be the only way this incompetent government can get spending under control.
How about we just keep this government shut down hoax going and cut government spending that way?

Yes, anyone is free to support the vets in their protest of the privately funded WW II memorial being barricade. Why weren't they there?
However, that the "political agenda put together by a local organizer" is so ambiguous to leave more questions than answers.
then try this...

We are all military brats, current and former military spouses and some veterans. We cannot express how utterly disappointed we were that our Greatest Generation were being used as political pawns in the ongoing government shutdown and budget crisis. This should never be the case.

Great leaders? OMG!!! Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld disgraced America.

FACT: "Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld, with the support and connivance of their legal advisors, threw their captives into a legal black hole, locking them for years in a constitutional limbo. They asserted – but refused to prove – that their captives were guilty of crimes.And tortured them in ways that defies belief."

"Torture is a universal crime. It is an international war crime against all of mankind. The judges said that international law makes clear that there is no safe haven for those who carry out or order torture. And that there is an obligation by States to capture and try war criminals if they enter their countries. Indeed the courts in some countries – like Spain and Germany – have already initiated such action."

"...what way out of the shutdown...."
There is no government shut down. It's all a hoax. The government is operating at (a selective) 87 percent. That missing 13 percent is just about what needs to be removed from government spending every year for about 10 years to get back to a balance between revenue and spending.
You can't say "balanced budget" because there hasn't even been a budget since Obama took office.
And that's the problem. If the government can't even budget itself, only an idiot would expect that government to be able to control spending.
How about we take a step forward and just keep that 13 percent of the government inactive and cut spending that way, since it's obviously impossible to cut spending with something like a budget as long as Democrats are involved.
How about " I'll see you &, raise you 1!" We can do that only if you republicans stop trying to deny the progress of Obama. Pass one of the many jobs bills he's presented to offset the jobs lost due to the cut of gov't employees? No you won't do that because, it'll prove that Obama couldn't been had the UE numbers under control, just like y'all are doing anything in the devils powers to block the ACA's succession because, it will prove y'all have been wrong the entire time! Y'all talk compromise _, negotiations but you're afraid of the outcome!

"There s nothing to say that Congress could just eliminate the whole program or double the tax rate."

It is not an unfunded liability because we could just eliminate the program? I think that is the concern with the program being an unfunded liability is that the program- Social Security and Medicare- will be eliminated.

Perhaps the government should have acknowledged changes needed to be made before it got to this point rather than keep kicking the can down the road thinking something will change.

The Dems turned the CR issue into a loser for them by adding in a no limit debt ceiling and demanding no spending cuts. The American public does not want the later two.
Susan Collins and six moderate Dems have created a bill that addresses these issues which Reid refuses to bring to a vote as he knows it will pass.
I worry that Harry Reid is on the verge of overplaying his hand and significantly altering the allocation of blame.
lol! repeat please
