Barack Obama, our next President

Changes to Social Security are on the horizon because the massive retirement and disability program is projected to run dry in 2033. At that point, Social Security would only collect enough taxes to pay about three-fourths of benefits. If Congress doesn't act, benefits automatically would be cut by about 25 percent.
http://news.msn.com/us/poll-older-americans-n...
Now let's see...who keeps saying Social Security is a great government-run program and doesn't need reform? And accused their opposition of wanting to kill grandma for suggesting it?
And who keeps saying it must be reformed to be sustained?
Why do most liberals willfully ignore the obvious?
Why is it that ringers always focus on waste from social welfare yet totally ignore waste elsewhere.

Fact (1) America and most western countries have an aging population. The birth rates are in negative territory so unless you open the borders to Mexico & have mass migration the balance of those working will not be enough to finance those who don't.
Countries with the same problems have increased the retirement age.
For every self funded retiree will be 10 that rely on social welfare.

Fact (2) Why is it that ringers totally ignore Wall St Welfare to concentrate on poor. Leaving the 4%'ers a free ride ??? WHY
The GFC cost on average around $120,000 each American household and the best answer you can come up with is Obama wastes on welfare or its government run program so Wall St would do better.

Well we all have seen how Wall St does better, then asks taxpayers to bail them. I think your money would be safer with the government!

Lying fool, every attempt to limit the power of the trial lawyers was beaten back by dums.$100K a year for medical malpractice insurance, you own it.
The Republicans idea of tort reform was to cap awards for malpractice.

In other words, you want the government to tell you what your eyesight is worth, what your daughter's life is worth.

As long as Republicans insist on caps, there will be no deal with Democrats on tort reform.

But for how long RealDave? I have a family too...
I am not going to sacrifice my family just to allow someone to cheat...will you?
No one is in favor of cheats. Show me a single post where someone defends cheaters.

But you people trash the entire programs. You know it so don't try to pretend you don't.

Read the posts here about the "moochers". They aren't talking cheats, they are talking recipients.

Just like the Food Stamp debate in Congress. The Republicans claim there are too many cheats & cut funding when they should increase funding for compliance enforcement.

Why not complain about the cheats in government contracting in general. How much do military contractors cheat. How do Senators & Congressmen "cheat" by directing projects to their supporters?

Right Whiner posters here want Food Stamp recipients to wear a neon sign on their head identifying them as "moochers".

What bout the people "stealing" millions through income tax fraud.

The entire Republican Party has taken up the cause of the evil, moochers, worthless 47%. You know it.

Why do you assume the plans that have been cancelled were crappy? I got some news for you they weren't. My wife and I had a great Cadillac plan but we received cancellation notice that ACA made it no longer compliant. Now I have a plan with higher deductibles higher co-pays higher premiums. My old plan didn't have a cap. But now I have pre/post natal care though my wife and I are past that part of our life. We don't need pediatric care and the list goes on. We pay for something we will never use.

There you go again, Democrat, telling half-truths, liar.

It's not that simple, simpleton.

The Democrat special interest group pushed hard to kill this reform because of the outrages fees they charge. Doctors are for it.

An good example of how ridiculous the fees are is your Democrat presidential candidate John Edwards, the Democrat louse that cheated on his dying wife.

There was an award of $25 million for one case, and your creep received fees of 33%.

Juries were making ludicrous awards.

Another example is, after Edwards won a large verdict against a trucking company whose worker had been involved in a fatal accident, the ---> North Carolina legislature passed a law prohibiting such awards unless the company had specifically sanctioned the employee's actions <---.

As usual, Democrats, the fascist Party of NO, would not compromise on the federal level.

Democrats are not interested in lowering health care costs, they are interested in power and socialism - government control.

Which makes it even more ironic. Democrats refused to accept health care reform similar to Obamacare under Nixon when most Republicans were on board.
It could have been implemented with a lot less confusion and less government intrusion back in 1974.
Democrats are quick to accuse Republicans of not placing health care reform as a priority when, in fact, Republicans under both Nixon and Bush, Sr., came up with the idea first.
You can play ancient history all you want Carol, but let's just cut to the chase and ask why the GOP has been wasting time and money attempting to repeal a law that was their idea in the first place?
The answer is easy. It's because Barack Obama signed it into law and they took a blood oath to obstruct anything that came out of his White House.

Sure Carol, it was the Democrats fault that a Republican run Congress did nothing to regulate mortgage brokers, mortgage backed securities or credit default swaps. But keep blaming Fannie and Freddie were victims of these unregulated brokers and the rating agencies who were paid by them to rate their toxic loans AAA.

Consider Obama knows how to get the deficit down, Where as republicans have no idea on how to do that. Give Obama room to invest and get the deficit going down faster than it already is. Republicans cry to fast, to fat slooooow downÂ… IÂ’ll go with Obama on this one. After all who created the debt in the first place. Republicans 1929 Great Depression and their 2008 Great RecessionÂ….
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the governmentÂ’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid.
Democrats: get the deficit down by spending more. Food Stamps and unemployment stimulates the economy.

See? Democrats are brain dead idiots in economic maters.

Conservatives KNOW that only Capitalism will make the deficit disappear.

Lies and cover ups are phony scandals.
Outrage becomes "there's no 'there' there."

It's simply a matter of believing we're stupid and will soon forget. Works every time.

Let's take a little trip down memory lane, shall we?

In front of a grand jury when Clinton was asked why wasn't he lying when he said to his top aides (with respect to Monica Lewinsky), "there's nothing going on between us"...here's his response:

"It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is. If the--if he--if 'is' means is and never has been, that is not--that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement....Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true."

Clear as mud, Mr. President.

Say anything and hope it sticks - just like Obama. It's a liberal thing.
Just as prophesied by many prophets: during the End Times there will be two and only two kind of people: the enlighten ones and the idiots. Meaning; the free and the Socialist, the Christians with morals and the immoral Democrats, the peaceful Tea Party and the criminal Wall Street Occupiers, the intelligent Conservatives and the dumb Democrats, the tolerant Republicans and the intolerant Democrats, the loving Conservatives and the hateful personal destruction Democrats, the hard working Conservative Americans and the lazy ghetto parasite Democrats.

Verizon's Record $49 Billion Bond Offering Won't Result in a Single New Job

By AL LEWIS CONNECT

"For five years, artificially low interest rates have punished savers, rewarded borrowers, and perverted economic incentives. Big companies don't have to produce much when there's always another refinancing option on the horizon. That's one reason why job creation—the true measure of an economy's health—has been abysmal."

Democrats hate the elders. They also hate black (remember Herman Cain) and women (remember Sarah Palin).

So why the elder hating socialist, "just take a pill", would defend the Social Security so much?

It is not about the elders but about a bigger and bigger social program and therefore a bigger government.

Cruz has revealed as he says “ A dirty little secret, republicans {traditionalist} would like very much to cast a symbolic vote against raising the debt ceiling and nonetheless to allow our democrat friends on the left side of the aisle to raise the debt ceiling.”
Mike Lee {R Tea Party} and Ted Cruz prefer the hostage/ransom method to block any progress of the Congress. John McCain {R Traditional} disagrees as this will inflame the scenario of an up and down vote by the democrats. Who will then expand that to all Key issues.
Democrats begin to set the stage. Complaining of how the republicans are blocking or delaying confirmation of top White House nominees. Including Federal Judges. Accusing a small group are abusing their powers to block actions for our Congress to proceed with the governing of our Nation.
