Now the apologists for the people on the government dole (25% of SSI recipients fraudulent, etc.) are saying those receiving welfare in various forms are paying federal excise tax on gasoline, cigarettes, etc. How foolish. People receiving government money to buy stuff aren't paying excise taxes, the government is paying itself.
It's how these people think! They think it's their money. They're twisted.
Exactly if someones income comes from the goverment (public coffers) they dont actually pay any taxes. Their parasitic income is derives from money robbed (taxed) away from some present or future producer. So whatever taxes they pay are just a recycleing of tax . A tax on a gift of tax money. Its like gettin a free dollar and paying a 10 cent handling fee.

Honey, what is your hard-on with the elderly??? Most of those people worked their entire lives and paid into social security!!!!!! They aren't getting anything free!!!! We paid much more into it than we will EVER get out of it!!!!!!!!!!
You think Romney and Ryan split the nation? What about Obama? He is pitting poor against rich, blacks against whites, etc., etc.!!!
I hate to shake you but you are wrong. most folks recieve everything they pay into social security within 5 years. My parents dad paid very little and mom nothing and they drew over $300,000 dollars from the ponzi sceme. The just reciently passed on. I know a guy who get disability for being blind and drives every day. And his children get a check also. Im 66 and havent bothered to sign up. they only let you earn $14,000 before penalizing you. heck I sometimes make that much in a month. I dont care much if I never recieve any social security. My parents got more than enough for me to worry about the loss of it. Social security & welfare need to be phased out. only the truly helpless & destitute should be dependent on goverment assistance.

Ok heres a simple example . A person gets a $5000 earned income credit tax refund. they buy some items and pay sales taxes ect. But it was free money that came from the public cofferes. So the TAXES they paid actually never came from the recipients pockets. It was a small protion of free goverment money returned to the public coffers. The whole $5000 was paid by the producers. The problem is too many takers and not enough makers. Ok I grow a garden. I grow enough tomatoes, potatos beans ,peas ect to feed me and my wife for the year. And its considerable work. Now if my children came by and helped themselves to enough to feed them we would run short. And that was happening. So I went and tilled them up a garden spot gave them the seed and told them you gotta grow your own. But that didnt work their gardens flopped and grew very little. And I didnt give them any of mine. guess what they where lazy and thought It was their right to be takers and they refused to be makers. Now Im mean old stingy dad. If I where being forced to unfairly share my produce I would simply quit producing. Thats what happended to the jobs in the USA, the goverment and labor unions where too greedy and wanted more than their fair share so they simply quit producing in the USA. In France the parasites have implemented a 75% income tax on the rich. It wont reduce the shortfall. Because the rich and their money are fleeing to other places.

Yes indeed my dad started drawing social security at age 62 and mom who never worked got a portion also. they never produced a single thing afterwards For thirty years they drew. and all they did was complain that they where cheated because they where notch year reciepents. the demanded discountes because they where on a FIXED income. they had the mentality that because they lived through the depression they where owed by society. They thought that roosevelt was a saint & savior. they believed that the sun rose & set in the democrat party. They believed that all wealthy people where evil. they actually believed the politicians cared about them. They had the wrong core concept, They acually believed their well being was dependent on other people things Or conditions. The social security ponzi sceme enabled my parents & their generation to be poster boy examples of oxygen thieves. I did love my parents but I didnt like them. And the majority of my siblings are gimmie democrat liberals just as they where.

Mitt Romney: The Empty Suit Clueless About the Empty Chair

Billy Koehler died on March 7, 2009, for lack of health insurance. Mitt Romney said on October 10, 2012, that's impossible.

The Republican nominee for president told the Columbus Dispatch last week:
We don't have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance.

Technically, that's true of Billy Koehler. He didn't die in his apartment. He died in his car. Koehler suffered cardiac arrest and perished slumped over his steering wheel at a stop sign in Pittsburgh because he didn't have health insurance and didn't have $60,000 to replace his implanted defibrillator.

poor, demented rugby. Nationalizing the ER is his health insurance plan.

its not because of no health insurance . Its because Bill had a bad heart. Its not my job to be taxed & robbed to provide a $60,000 part just so some parasite can continue being a oxygen theif.

FL poll: Voters are also inclined to believe that Romney is “more likely to raising taxes on the middle class”
than Obama.
