Obamas phoney IRS scandal still continues up to this moment. Obviously this administration cares nothing about the Constitution or the law of the land.
It ignores pleas and cries for Justice!

You are a stupid old pussy who can only call people names! I bet you won't run your mouth like you do when people are actually in arms reach of you. You never say anything but a lot of hateful BS. So tell me what the difference is between European style medical care, or what you call socialism and SSI and Medicare???

You know you don't really know.

Good post. What is never mentioned is that there are people that die before they ever draw one cent of their Social Security. Many people die just a fairly short time after starting to draw Social Security. What happens to that money? It stays in the General fund. Few people know that the U.S. Government has written IOU's to Social Security for over two trillion dollars. Will that money ever be paid back? No. Just keep blaming everything on the older people that paid their hard earned money into it. The old farts make easy targets thrown up by the lying politicians and news medias for the ignorant masses consumption.
Ignorance is bliss, most get back more than they paid in, a lot more. Its not a savings account that was pain into, its another tax. SSI is going broke because the model was for the current workers to fund the retired workers. Retired workers are growing in number and will continue to grow as baby boomers retire. NOBODY owns anybody anything

The Obama administration is considering offering insurance subsidies—intended for the uninsured—to labor union members who already have employer-sponsored coverage.
The unions have come to "collect" from Obama. They spent a lot of money on Obama to get him elected. Obama promised the unions that if they would support Obamacare, they would be able to keep their current plans and doctors if they liked them. THEN....Obama turned around and screwed the unions. They have put pressure on Obama and apparently he is thinking about caving. He is CRAZY if he does that. All h*ll will break loose with everyone else. Obama is absolutely an idiot who has NO BUSINESS being in the WH.

We are on the same page, and I did mention there could be people that had mental or physical handicaps. They should qualify for government assistance and with a minimum wage job be able to get by.
If a normal healthy person wants more money for their work, than they must have the ability, motivation, and knowledge to obtain that money.
Yep!

Low Education + Low Motivation = Low Pay(as well it should)

You are probably right. His mother just calls it SS. I just read a bit about SSI and my guess is that it IS SSI.

Looks like Obama wants sex education for our kindergartners. Now the government can't leave small children alone and want to ruin their innocence.
Parents should be in charge of their kids sex education, especially the young ones. Obama says it will be age appropriate. Just whom determines that?
Parents have been doing just fine handling questions about sex from their small children for the last 2000 years. I see no reason to change things, just to change things.

Ugly Eve; first off, educate yourself if you are going to talk about the programs you are referring too.
Social Security and SSI are NOT one and the same.
The Social Security portion of your payroll tax is typically 6.2 percent of earnings up to a certain amount, which is adjusted annually (in 2012, the cap was set at $110,100). Employers also pay 6.2 percent for each employee. For a total of 12.4% for S.S.
Now consider if that employee got the 12.4% and invested in his or her name for their personal retirement.
An example would be a worker who averaged $40,000 a year over a 40 year career would pay into S.S. an average of $4,960(employee + employer contribution) a year. Assume the worker’s first year’s salary of $20k and last year’s salary of $60k, with a balance of salary increasing over the 40 years worked, equally to account for the rise in income from $20 to $60k.
That person would accumulate (with the 12.4%)$490,179 over 40 years at 4% compound interest.
That same person would accumulate $629,125 over 40 years at 5% compound interest.
Now that person retires at age 65 dies at age 80, all monies left will go to his heirs, NOT so with S.S.
Or say the person lives to 85, monies will still go to his heirs.
The average S.S. payment as of July 26, 2013 is $1,270 a month or $15,240 a year.
Let’s pretend you get $20,000 a year in S.S. for the rest of your life. At age 85, you will have received $400k from S.S.. At age 89 you will have received $480k. Only when you reach age 90 does S.S. pay more than if you had invested yourself.
Average life expectancy for Americans are men = 76, and women = 81.
If the interest rate averaged 5% or more, S.S. would never reach the level you would have saved, and all monies would go to heirs.
From a conservatives point of view, we would rather control our own money.
From a liberals point of view, you would rather let the gubmint control your money.
Therein is only one main point of difference between conservatives and liberals; as there are other many others as well.
+++1 Awesome post!!!!! You explained that very well. The libroids won't "get/support it", but you did a stellar job explaining it.

And hopefully future retirees will not have to pay for your old age retirement.

I wonder, if it happens, if it would be just the "big boys" (e.g., UAW, IBEW) or all unions, no matter how big or how small.

I'm sure it's mostly the bigger guys going to bat, however, they all stick together. Do you happen to know?
The only thing that really matters to me is that if "some" get waivers/exemptions, we ALL should.
