U R right on he mark. The s.security mess is a cash flow problem. It can be easily fixed by increasing the incoming income. Remove the salary caps where s.security withholding stops. There should be no need to further raise retirement ages. When COLA increases activate, do not give any increase to retirees earning over a certain amt of $$$$$

You're clueless. he's created more jobs in the past 2 years than the bush puppet regime. You could use some of that education he's promoting.
BTW......
where are the jobs the dumbazz pukes and baggers promised?

Oh, we know, it was all an election ploy.

Government can't create jobs. But it can create the conditions where small business can continue to rebound and thrive... by lowering taxes. - President Obama, 9-2010.

Our elected officials just dont get it. The dept of education is no longer needed in this country. Education is responsibility of the states. Our school kids are failing us. They need to have their toes held to the hot coals and start producing in stead of gragging us down to a long slow death as a 3rd world debtor nation owned lock stock and barrel by China

Sounds like the problem is mom and dad: bad parenting, not instilling values, buying cell phones, ipods, crackberries, computer games and not disciplining their youngins'. They could try talking with them too.

He should speak to his friends in the NEA about merit pay and allowing qualified math and science teachers to enter the professional without the waste of time Ed courses
