Minnesotans start to feel impact of sequestration cuts

Jun 11, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KARE 11 TV

We haven't heard that word "sequestration" for awhile, but Rico Alexander, who runs the Head Start Program in Minneapolis, has not forgotten about the massive, nationwide federal budget cut.

GOOD QUESTION, MITTIOT !!!!

Even though the Republican presidential candidate makes an ungodly amount of money (go to romneymakes.com if you want to see exactly how much), he doesnít pay as much money in taxes as one would think.

ZERO FOR YEARS, comes to mind....

The two party system would work if everyone got voted out just one time.
How about starting with one person/one vote. 2(or 3) party system works only if all parties play by the same rules. Citing the voter fraud that's apparently inherent in the Democrat party and influence peddling the Republicans use to counter that, you don't always get the most qualified as a representative.

You get frauds like Franken, elected by felons (over 2,000!)- illegal votes that put him over the top, winning by a couple hundred. Partisan hack Mark Ritchie saw to that. Democrats seem comfortable stealing elections - see their push for immigration reform, laughing off concerns for border security in exchange for a dependent voting block -their favorite kind.

Or an IRS union calling for $70,000,000 in bonuses in the age of sequestration. They happen to donate to Democrats at a 95% clip. Sure they're 'non-partisan'. This isn't your Dad's Democrat Party.

<quoted text>The dems and the repubs both want power. They both continue to vote in partisan ways to either embarass the President or embarass the Speaker or Majority Leader in the Senate. We need to vote them all out, every last damn one of them, start over, putting in term limits, intelligent quotas, etc.
I agree with everything you said except for t term limit comment. If the voters are doing their job, there is no need for term limits.

But, then again, these are the voters that gave us Barack Hussein Obama for twoterms, aren't they?

Makes one wonder how good education is in
Minnesota when some citizens of that state are
stupid enough to elect a parasitic, lazy-ass,
totally unproductive person like Michelle
Bachmann to Congress.

Seven years in the House and not one piece of
legislation to her name. None. Nichts. Nada.
She just sat there sucking up salary and
benefits and doing absolutely nothing to
earn it.

Correction: Bachmann did sponsor a bill to
repeal the Affordable Care Act.....for the 35th
time in the House.

Nice going Michelle, you lazy-assed good-for-nothing!

The same state that elected a "parasitic, lazy-ass, totally unproductive person" like Mark Dayton to be the governor. He's just another useless trust fund baby who only got elected because he had enough money to buy the election.

Sounds like the GOP House to me. They're against gay marriage, abortion and everything else. Oh wait, they do favor corporate tax breaks.

Stay on topic Dumbo Jr.

You are the one screaming that the top earners need to pay "their fair share" of the Federal Income Tax.

FACT: The top 10% earn 43% of the income in this country, yet they pay 71% of the Federal Income Taxes. They pay almost double their "fair share".

FACT: 51% of the households pay nothing in Federal Income Taxes. When will they start to pay their "fair share"?

Do we know each other?

You're just spouting a rightwing talking point that ignores a larger picture of who pays a higher percentage of their income on taxes and who controls a dis-proportionate amount of the wealth.

Makes a snappy little catch phrase for you guys and you love that stuff.

The snappy little catch phrase is your side's claim about the producers in this country not paying "their fair share".

You want to penalize those that work hard and are successful by making them pay higher Federal Income Tax rates.

Yet, the dirty little secret you never tell is that the minority of wage earners who have worked their asses off to become successful are paying for a disproportionate number of moochers that pay nothing into the Federal Tax System.

Dispute the numbers. Facts are not your friend in this argument.

When will everyone pay their "fair share"? I already pay way more than my "fair share".
