I keep thinking to myself "If only all of my (deposits) had been made into a mandantory 401K instead of the general fund I would have a pretty nice chunk of change to draw on when I retire soon."
I am sure the private firm managing my social security 401K would have taken some maintenance fees over the years, but nothing like the way politicians have been stealing SS and Medicare money over it history.
The latest incident happened when Obamacare transferred 751 Billion from Medicare to Obamacare. I think the Republicans should have aired a commercial showing Obama driving some mass transit vehicle by remote control filled with old people driving them all over a cliff at the same time.
That has been one of my pet peeves for many years. Imagine if a business or a bank set up a retirement plan and your family didn't get the money if you died! These libtards on here would be screaming to the moon.

That was the brunt of every joke on the planet, Lily. Even by late-night liberals.
Please don't embarrass yourself.
I know it was; but, I felt it was him expressing true passion. He's really smart too! It's a shame that people can't just be themselves.
Take Mitt for example; that hidden video of him speaking at that fundraising dinner? That was Mitt, being himself. Why doesn't he just stick to being who he really is?
Are you a bit confused now? I mean after all, you were parroting that 47% everyday, defending it, chastising the lazy good for nothing unemployed welfare people and minorities who you think that represents.
Now, he's changed his mind!
He said "I will sign any legislation to overturn Roe v. Wade", now, he's changed his mind.
He said, "we don't need more teachers, didn't the President see what happened in Minnesota"?
Now, he's changed his mind.
He said "I will end Pell Grants and Student Loans, students should borrow money from their parents"
Now, he's changed his mind.
Must be hard for you to keep up with him

Here is the rate of deficit to GDP for the past three presidents-yes Cliton had a deficit:
Bill Clinton
1993-2000 0.8
1994-2001 0.1
Average 0.5
George W. Bush
2001-08 2.0
2002-09 3.4
Average 2.7
Barack Obama
2009-12* 9.1
2010-12 8.7
Bush walked in the door witrh a state of the union where by 2012 the CBO said we would have a 5.5 trillion dollar SURPLUS.

We don't, here is a list that says what killed that idea:, including 3.5 trillion for the recession.

"in June 2012, CBO summarized the cause of change between its January 2001 estimate of a $5.6 trillion cumulative surplus between 2002 and 2011 and the actual $6.1 trillion cumulative deficit that occurred, an unfavorable "turnaround" or debt increase of $11.7 trillion. Tax cuts and slower-than-expected growth reduced revenues by $6.1 trillion and spending was $5.6 trillion higher. Of this total, the CBO attributes 72% to legislated tax cuts and spending increases and 27% to economic and technical factors. Of the latter, 56% occurred from 2009 to 2011.[38][39]
The difference between the projected and actual debt in 2011 can be largely attributed to:
$3.5 trillion – Economic changes (including lower than expected tax revenues and higher safety net spending due to recession)
$1.6 trillion – Bush Tax Cuts (EGTRRA and JGTRRA), primarily tax cuts but also some smaller spending increases
$1.5 trillion - Increased non-defense discretionary spending
$1.4 trillion – Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq
$1.4 trillion - Incremental interest due to higher debt balances
$0.9 trillion - Obama stimulus and tax cuts (ARRA and Tax Act of 2010)"

As for who is to blame:

"Recessions or the business cycle (37%);
Policies enacted by President Bush (33%);
Policies enacted by President Bush and supported or extended by President Obama (20%); and
New policies from President Obama (10%)."

You right whiners are just stupid. There canbe n other reasons you blame Obama.

DARYL ISSA CONVENE A HEARING THE NEXT DAY TO DECRY THE ADMINISTRATION'S EXCEEDING IT'S BUDGET DURING A TIME OF ECONOMIC AUSTERITY.
LIBYA WAS A SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN BY PRESIDENT OBAMA TO REMOVE A DICTATOR WITHOUT ANY AMERICAN LOSS OF LIFE. THE REPUBLICANS WILL DO ANYTHING, ANYTHING AT ALL, TO TRY AND BLUNT THE OBVIOUS SUCCESS OF THE OPERATION, AND TO TAKE THE FOCUS OFF THE ABJECT FAILURE OF THEIR OWN ADVENTURES. BUT THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS: IF YOU NEED PROTECTION, DON' HIRE A MORMON.
Awesome, we took a knife away from the Libyans and gave the Brotherhood guns, and so far, it's only cost four American lives?

You really need to get better informed.
By a law passed under Reagan,SS surplus is loaned to the federal government.
Key word is loaned.
When has this "loan" ever been repaid? Is the government responsible for paying interest on this "loan?"

Legislators have been tapping into SS funds long before Reagan.

Prove your point.

Lie his azzzzzzz off!
Not only was the UN convinced he had WMDs - probably because he DID and had used them on 5000 Kurds, mostly women and children - but everyone on the planet including your precious weasels under the Clinton administration and President Clinton, himself, were convinced he had WMDs because THEY wanted to overthrow Saddam's regime in 1998 - 3 years before 9/11!

Sometimes I think that's his objective. Why else would Obamacare NOT kick in until 2014 - when he knew he would be out of office?
He fulfilled his purpose of causing sufficient damage to this country and can retire in the lap of luxury when our taxes skyrocket to cover the cost of Obamcare and we're waiting for our rationed healthcare.
And speaking of inferior, up squawks the serial liar...
