one would think with all the manditory spending by our government on medicare and social security, that they would also buy mo and pm. instead of always looking to raise taxes, invest. obama lowering social security tax from payrolls doesn't say much for u.s. citizens. or the program.

social security taxes up to 106k only. giving a break to a smaller earner still doesn't solve the entitlement costs escalating. rich people get it and say they don't need it. it seems the gov. looks at it as more funds for ssi. more growth could come from not taxing corperations on dividends they distribute. having them taking on more debt for write offs on interest payments is like breeding mortgage back securities and cds's. double taxation on div's is b.s. and obama wants to raise them?
