No problem while in school, you will understand it when you get out of school and get a taxpaying job. If there are any jobs left in this country.

Oh, I am way beyond school. I graduated long ago. I studied "Tax Law 1977". Since that year, I have held a number of tax paying jobs along with filing two joint (2 marriages) returns. I am currently a widow without children trying to understand my next step in this life both financially and socially. It concerns me that our government can possibly take my social security benefits. I am tired, old, and confused. I am "livin' on a prayer".

Easy to discuss what they will do with other peoples money, but if they want to set an excample they should cut their bloated pay, benefit and staff. Put themselves on the same healthcare and retirment plans they force on us.
99% of the people I know are moderates. Some are Republicans. Some are Democrates. But all of them fall closer to the middle than to the extremes of either party. It's time for the politicians to realize that and start running the country from the middle.

There's really no big deal, or catastrophic issue when we go over that proverbial cliff. The President has tried since the first day in office to work with the republicans, their only consideration since his first day in office, was to make him a one term President,(this is teabagger politics), and the reds became the party of NO. So for the last three and half years they have done nothing, nothing at all to get anything productive done. Long story short, if you're not pulling down over a quarter of a million, annually, you got no problem....even if there is no budget,(the reds get the total credit for this one), but the Vets, older Americans on SS, Medicare, children with horrible illnesses that are on medicaid, and Soldiers, are going to feel it first, it will continually worsen. Much like life has for the majority of the population (the 98%) for the past eight years. The reds can't keep holding the middle class hostage, indefinitely and they are aware of this fact. They will cave, but not until they do all their praying, talking to God, and telling anyone that will listen, "God has turned his back on America, you're all going to hell, the only way into Heaven and prosperity is through the republicans and all those storms and horrid weather events, those are the fault of the poor too. They complain about not having enough food for their kids, damned greedy leeches, this is said with sarcasm and exaggeration, but it is filled with facts. You have to read it all to get the jest of it, lol!

Ever work for a poor man?
Ever start your own business?
Ever worked at all?
Pointing fingers at the extremely rich or extremely poor plays into the hands of those wanting to destroy us by eliminating the middle class.
This stuff has been done before. Get some education.

Do you recognize the communist propaganda taking hold yet from the crazy posts on this forum? Its been spread for four years by the main stream media and the ignorant have swallowed it hook line and sinker. Boy will they be puzzled when they find themselves in the work camps.

I don't believe it's going to happen, the Americans are getting fed up with GOP trying to push their will on the people, they will either bend or take another step backwards.

Why not just let it happened and taxes and $600 billion spending cuts with the Clinton tax plan back in place. It worked pretty well back in the 90's. We are in a constant recession up and down week to week anyway.

Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx recently called Barack Obama "our lord and savior."

JAMIE FOXX: First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama.

This occurred at the previously recorded Soul Train Awards broadcast on BET Sunday (video follows with transcript and commentary)........

As I have indicated on many occasions.....obama really IS the messiah.

It's all by design to set up the NEW WORLD ORDER. The economy must be busted to set up the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT for the man of Satan to rule. Just get saved by the grace of God by accepting His son Jesus as your personal Saviour and you will escape the great tribulation that is very close at hand. That's all you have to do to prepare.

This fake leadership is, in fact, at war not only with the GOP, but especially with the American People. That includes the freestuffer Demovomits out there.
Too bad for them, eh? We Conservatives saw this coming long ago and have fully prepared. We will watch as you flow into the progressivist toilet and get flushed right where you belong---the stinking sewer..

I really think that we as a country need to just jump off this cliff and be done with it. I mean really, the Bush tax cuts expire, whoop de do. Yeah, the payroll withholding tax cut was from Social Security withholdings. Think about it, SS is basically insolvent, so let's cut the tax to finance it. Doh!!!

As far as spending cuts, well maybe that has to happen also. Seems government in all areas think the money grows on trees. Need to spend a couple billion on a new jet that doesn't work or maybe tons for a new weapons system. Sure no problems. Don't like the color uniforms the soldiers are wearing. Let's change the color and camo pattern and buy all new ones. But let's not thin about if the new pattern will work, lets just pick one and go with it without any thought, so we have to replace it when we figure out it doesn't work.In other areas, oh, lets fund a bunch of crap no one cares about. As long as our congressmen "bring home the bacon"

And in the name of "free enterprise" we'll let companies pay their employees so little the employees don't pay taxes, and in some cases get federal aid. Oh, and since the company doesn't pay health insurance, the government gets to pay for that also.

Wasn't just Obama, or just Bush that got us into this mess, Congress had a big hand in it also. I still wonder how the heck all the incumbents got re-elected, considering the crappy job they did.
