Republicans and increasingly Democrats, as both parties are dependent on the same sources of campaign contributions, blame “entitlements.” By entitlements they mean welfare.

In fact, entitlements consist of Social Security and Medicare. Entitlements are funded by the payroll tax, approximately 15% of payroll. The fact that a person pays the payroll tax all his working life is why the person is entitled to Social Security and Medicare if they live to retirement age. Welfare, such as food stamps and housing subsidies, are a small part of the federal budget and are not entitlements.

Every since President Reagan was betrayed three decades ago by Alan Greenspan and David Stockman, both of whom sold out to Wall Street and raised the Social Security payroll tax above what was needed to pay Social Security benefits in order to protect Wall Street’s stock and bond portfolios from exaggerated deficit fears, Social Security payroll tax revenues have exceeded Social Security payments. As of today, Social Security revenues exceed payments to beneficiaries by an accumulated $2 trillion. The money was used by the federal government to pay for its wars and other spending programs. The Social Security Trust Fund holds non-marketable IOUs from the Treasury. These IOUs can only be made good from an excess of tax revenues over expenditures or by the Treasury selling $2 trillion in bonds, notes, and bills and paying off its IOUs to the Social Security Trust Fund. This is not going to happen.

The Federal Reserve could not care less about the US population. The Fed was established for the purpose of protecting and aiding banks. Currently, the Fed, as if America were a Banana Republic which America appears to be becoming, is printing one thousand billion dollars per year in order to support the banks and to finance the federal deficit.

This is bad news for Americans, as it means that their fiat money is being created at a far greater rate than the demand for the dollar. The implication for our future is a drop in the dollar’s value. As there are no jobs, a drop in the dollar’s value means high inflation on top of unemployment and double the misery of the Great Depression.

<quoted text>McAuliffe opens up double-digit lead over Cuccinelli in Virginia governor’s race
Democrat Terry McAuliffe has opened a double-digit lead over Republican Ken Cuccinelli II in the race for Virginia governor, in a new poll capturing increasing dissatisfaction among voters with Cuccinelli’s party and his conservative views.
According to a new Washington Post/Abt SRBI poll, McAuliffe tops Cuccinelli 51&#8201;percent to 39&#8201;percent among likely voters in the Nov. 5 election. McAuliffe led by eight percentage points in a poll taken last month. Libertarian Robert Sarvis, who has capitalized on voter unrest with the two major-party candidates, is at 8 percent, according to the new poll.

Because that makes a difference - if you're forced to pay more to meet the Obamacare "requirements" or getting health care for free.

So, you think Obama should have named all men in the cabinet?

If you like I will even get my Al Gore poster out & display it on my window. So give it your best shot tea bagger. You are a disgrace to American culture, brain washed by a conservative movement that has lost its way with nothing to offer except insults using BS throw away lines like "handouts", "welfare" & "commies". To defend what ??? the lifestyle of the 4%'ers ? of which you sure as hell are not one of. If you think you are defending your lifestyle, then all those jobs & low paid service work did not disappear because of Welfare. They leaked offshore in the millions supercharged from Reagan's time on by "cutting the red tape" on regulations to continually shrink from 74% of the mass population who owned America's wealth in the 60's down to the 4% owning 76% of all the wealth of America as of today. The fact that you think it's handouts as the cause is delusional as this so called fictional small government crap. It's your kind that are a bigger threat to America than Bin Laden ever was. Thankfully there are not enough of you these days to go around and in a decade or so the whole lot of your kind will be all gone.
