ole man please research what party in government dipped into the soc sec and took the money out and wasted it.In 1939 the Soc Sec trust fund was started operating on its own. In 1969(started in 68 under Johnson) the money from the trust fund was included in what was called the 'unified budget'.It meant all government functions were in one budget thus our soc sec money was no longer safe. It will never be safe again and will eventually be gone and no coverage for elderly. Should have left it alone. Dems started the destruction of ss and will end it. Obummer care will help it along,

Everything but a free ck has been cut and the handout kitty will soon be empty. the 49%that don't pay taxes will have no sugar tit then.Elect Hillary nxt time maybe she can help

<quoted text>Cut foreign aid to the countries that hate us first. Like Egypt and Pakistan. We are giving aid to Egypt for their military AND their umemployment fund! THAT is just plain STUPID! It was Obamas idea. NOT GW. Yes GW made a lot of dumb decisions but Obama is at the wheel now, and he alone has added WAYYY more than Bush EVER did. What about Solyndra? and all of the other "green" companies that he is throwing money at, and they are going under and taking OUR money with them. He needs to quit blocking the Keystone pipeline and lets get oil independent. GW is not the only one with ties to the corporate world. YES,we should close tax loopholes, eliminate oil subsidies AND GREEN energy subsidies, and penalize corps that move jobs out of the country. I'm not a Gop or Lib and I see some good in some of Obama's plans but he needs to "man up" and stop blaming GW. You supporters of his need to be honest and realize that our president does not know what he is doing. He said himself that if he could not fix the economy in his first term, then he would not deserve a second term. Well he didn't do it but he ran anyway and got re-elected because of the liberal media and his supprters blindly followng him. Most of ya'll wouldn't know how to manage a budget even if your life were on the line. And almost ALL of the blacks voted for him BECAUSE of his color, and they say whites are the racist ones. If we voted for a man just beause he was white, they would blow a freaking gasket! and the liberal media woud be doing 2 hour specials on it for 6 months! and ya'll KNOW I'm right!
I'm sure everyone has by now seen the cartoon that says,"Stop foreign aid, and let them hate us for free!"

Actually Bush and Obama are in a virtual tie in debt. BUT look at what Bush incurred the debt for---war and tax cuts and wall street bailout. Obama has had to fight Congress for every bit of stimulus ( a large part of stimulus was payroll tax cut for all workers). Obama has actually made budget cuts in specific areas.Wrongfully he has agreed to some social security cuts. I personally believe we need to set new priorities with Social Security and Medicare and Health care being No. 1. Cut defense. Our defense budget exceeds the next 12 highest country's defense budgets COMBINED. AGAIN, ADD UP THE DEFENSE BUDGETS OF THE NEXT HIGHEST 12 COUNTRIES AND OUR DEFENSE BUDGET EXCEEDS THAT. Why do we give oil subsidies to oil companies? Why? That is free money tobillionaires. Why let hedge fund managers make billions and pay virtually no income tax? Why let a billionaires like Buffett pay less tax than his secretary? Why cut( that's right cut taxes to the rich--return taxes to the pre-Clinton rate.)Those tax cuts were meant to be temporary.The key is to stop job outsourcing and stop the stagnation of wages. Greater wages produces more Soc. Security pay-in and more income taxes overall so the rates can be lower in the long run and more pay income tax--ie broader tax base. Finally stop obsessing about the deficit. Increase GDP, increase wages and then you will have a surplus like we did with Clinton because of a broader tax base. Workers are getting the shaft and the rich are laughing at you all the way to the bank.The rich are using scare tactics about the deficit to pass cuts in spending and holding the country hostage by refusing to incfease the debt ceiling to pay for the appropriations that
they have already passed--it is welching on their own promise to pay. The Republican are the most deceptive and disingenuous group of politicians ever and that is saying a lot. Stop buying into their propaganda.THINK FOR YOURSELVES.
THE DEBT WILL BE RETIRED WHEN OUR ECONOMY GETS TO FULL FORCE.
