Barack Obama, our next President

Progressives appear to think that payments to states involve JUST welfare payments which is a fallacy.
Payments are made for a variety of reasons including the large national parks contained in some of the states on your list.
However, at this point, I am willing to agree to having all national parks transferred to state control.
Now which states have the largest percentage of their population on welfare-
1 California
2. Maine
3. Tennessee
4. Massachusetts
5. Vermont
6. District of Columbia
7. New York
8. Minnesota
9. Washington (state)
Tie-10. New Mexico

12. Rhode Island

14. Pennsylvania

The national parks their was debunked a long time ago. If that were the case, why does your welfare states even receive more funding for National security, education, gov't programs in general? You people are the true moochers. How can y'all complain about welfare recipients when you people live in welfare states?

However, Monica Lewinsky had no respect for herself. She knew what she wanted and she went after it...an affair with the President, not the other way around. What kind of a nutcase doesn't have her dressed cleaned after such an encounter? Only a manipulating, crazy beotch. Her rights weren't disrespected.

If only Democrats would respect women...period. John Edwards, Anthony Weiner, Bill Clinton...I've lost count.

John Edwards can't really be blamed though. Obama hadn't forced taxpayers to pay for his mistress's contraception.

Though Treasury likely will have enough cash on hand to meet its obligations for a week or so, it might be forced to pay a higher interest rate on the bonds it is due to issue on Thursday.

Banks and money market funds are already shunning some government bonds that are normally used for short-term loans. In China, the largest foreign holder of U.S. debt, the state news agency Xinhua said it was time for a "de-Americanized world."

http://news.yahoo.com/u-senate-leader-sees-ch...

So in summary the Tea bagging shutdown of the government and refusal to raise the debt ceiling is going to:

A. Cost us more money with higher interest rates on bonds

and

B. Further improve their Chinese overlords takeover of the planet.

So , what do you do with the 80 year old couple that runs out of money?
What do you do with the disabled
That do you do with the unemployed
You just got rid of taxes, how are you finding the military? infrastructure, law enforcement, etc
And please not the "fairtax. The tax that gives huge tax breaks to corporations & wealthy people.
Spending only what comes in will take recessions & turn them into depressions.
(1) Anybody over 65 nothing would change. On a sliding scale people would be encouraged to save the tax money now being removed from their paycheck now. Most people couldn't tell you how much is removed from their paycheck so they wouldn't miss it anyway. With people saving at least a third of their paycheck every pay period you would have to get rid of the estate tax. One of the biggest problems is the democrat/progressives need to confiscate wealth. If the people are no longer poor why would they need them. I may go into this more later.
(2)The truly disabled will always be taken care of. Notice I said truly disabled.
(3) Unemployment is due to the tax and other policies of the government. Getting the government off the backs of small business and corporation will free them to do what they do. Grow and prosper. New businesses will spring up. Government is the problem. Not the solution.
(4) Your dislike of the Fair Tax is irrational. You would stop the poor people being lifted out of poverty because some rich guy might make a dollar. Just remember this. What hurts the big guy hurts the small guy more. With the fair tax the US would become the largest tax haven in the world. Money would flow here in the billions. We would have to import a million people a year to keep up with job growth.

I provided you with the exact wording contained in the actual Affordable Care Act matching your Section and page claims. They proved you to be an idiot. You're the one "regurgitating the party line propaganda." You are the one with egg on his face.

I provided you with the link to read it for yourself. I'm not going to hand feed you the section and page of everyone of your claims. If you are too lazy or afraid to recognize your stupidity, that is your problem.

This sounds like you're describing the core of Mary Landrieu's supporting districts in New Orleans.
So, did you ever get around to asking all those cities who opened their homes up to the "refugees" from New Orleans what they thought about them?

<quoted text> Hey Ghostie!!! Social Security -$16.6 trillion in the hole!!! Medicare -$87.5 trillion in the hole.
They just said on the news today that the Social Security and Medicare Welfare Programs are the biggest problem and the answer is just eliminate them since the SCOTUS(Liberal Majority) in 1960 stated that Individuals have no rights to Social Security which they stated the Welfare Benefits can be reduced or eliminated at any time which is what the Democrats wanted and is the reason for Section 1104 of the Social Security Act of 1935, entitled "RESERVATION OF POWER," specifically said: "The right to alter, amend, or repeal any provision of this Act is hereby reserved to the Congress." which is even stated on the Social Security Website(link below) and the reason is that Social Security is funded by a tax just like Medicare which is funded by a tax which is why there is no rights to either one.

<quoted text>What part of " you all lost the election " don't you get? Policies are going to be more left leaning because, democrats hold 2/3 of the gov't. That didn't happen by accident, more of America leans left than right. So what did we waste our time voting for, on Nov 6 if, it didn't mean " the winner means the majority rules?" Republicans won the house to represent for republicans interest, not hold the country hostage for already existing policies! America's vote was a subliminal message," the country doesn't trust you republicans!"
So you don't think Democrats ever lose elections or the Congress? Republicans didn't treat them like they were irrelevant and passed a major partisan law without giving them any input or having one of them on board. That has never happened - at least not to my knowledge and I've been following politics for four decades now.

I don't even recall the present bullying ever being the case by former Democrats who were elected in the past.

How old are you anyway? Because I can assure you, we are NOT in Kansas anymore.
