It is old people who do not work, but are too young to get Social Security that are a drag on Society. If they worked when they were young they didn't pay enough taxes to warrent taking care of them now. They are more of a burden on the State then the Federal Government.

“To contract new debts...”

Since: Apr 08

is not the way to pay old ones

<quoted text>Seniors ALL live off of the government. You keep posting you want people to work but you yourself have never worked and you never will work not even for one day. You want other people to work so that seniors can keep living off of the government. You want everyone working so they are paying into SS and Medicare so you did not ever have to work for one day and then you get SS and Medicare, massivwe socialism from the government. Now you say seniors are so smart, yet all you post to me is you attack me for being in my 50s. You're way stupid and a pathetic joke.
Instead of going shopping all the time and pissing away all of your husband's hard earned money, why don't you go to work for once in your life and why don't you save your own money to live retired instead of spending it all and then being so unhappy spending money and then attacking strangers cause you are so unhappy having everything for nothing? Why don't you work and save money rather than you looking for SS and Medicare when you never worked?
And your welfare check is any makes you better than them, at least they payed into the system. Go smoke another one.

It's funny how nobody flinches at our defense budget of 600 billion dollars a year, shit like the f-22 jet that's costs us just to store it, and it has never seen a day in battle. But when we bring up healthcare, and the fact we actually have to spend some money, to better our people. Republican freak out!

The problem being the healthcare scam benefits foreigners and domestic lay abouts more than it does tax paying citizens.

Our people are the most fortunate in the world. People come from all over the world to take advantage of our opportunities, so why would we find it necessary to take care of our people? We need to defend this country more then we need to take care of people who should take care of themselves.

What was all that BS,about TRANSPARENCY????????

The president who campaigned for a more “open government” and “full disclosure” will not unseal his medical records, his school records, his birth records or his passport records. He will not release his Harvard records, his Columbia College records, or his Occidental College records—he will not even release his Columbia College thesis. All his legislative records from the Illinois State Senate are missing and he claims his scheduling records during those State Senate years are lost as well. In addition, no one can find his school records for the elite K-12 college prep school, Punahou School, he attended in Hawaii.

EXCUSE THE RANT!!!

The real sad fact is we elected a person whose only leadership qualifications were that he was a community activist in chicago. He worked for a group that recieved 500 million dollars to improve schools in chicago and it failed miserably to make any difference. His real qualifications were that he was the TYPE of person that the democrats felt would polarize america to vote democratic. The previous presidents had at least been govonors of a state. The truth is bill clinton was the true sellout of america as he released our technology to china for free and denigratedthe office of president. We have just initiated the start treaty with russia to limit warheads with a country that is run by a huge mafia type leader who will have access to our military's secrets while supposedly offering us the same. Its been a long time since our contracts with foreign leaders were honored, and we send millions of dollars to these foreign countries to arm themselves and it has always bit us in the azz.. I always felt clinton should have been held accountable for the transfer of technology to china and the public told about his investments in dubai. We also have the money designated for the u.s. military being drained into a private company that now controls the most sensitive and new technology. Of course,that doesn't make news,the fact that we are using mercenaries in the military at a dramatic price while our regular military families need food stamps. We used to send troops when the u.s. was threatened ,now its when u.s. INTEREST are threatened. We need to realize that these u.s. interest are not u.s. owned companies but are foreign owned also. I feel as though the u.s. needs to stand back and start protecting the u.s taxpayers and protect the citizens interest for a change. Obama talks about increasing u.s. exports and the only area we have left is cheap natural gas, wonder how cheap it will be whenamerica can make bigger profits shipping it out. I guess thats how we will increase exports as its one of the only resources left as clinton allowed our manufacturing base to be dismantled.

The naked truth is America F..Ked Up Big Time!!!

The middle class typically carries the country because most of our taxpayers are members of what is called the "middleclass" and that covers both blue collar and white collar workers in the country. The problem we have is that the middleclass is shrinking as our unemployment is double what is considered "full employment" and the number of Americans not paying federal income tax is close to 50% of the population. Currently there are 100 million out of the population of 308 million that are receiving a government subsidy payment of some kind (welfare, SS, food stamps, disability, etc). Without jobs and people to pay taxes, nothing really works. Today, under the Obama administration, the country is spending $1.2 Trillion a year more then revenue coming into the government. They are unable to get their arms round how to solve the unemployment problem while refusing to cut spending which is an untenable situation. We need a new team in the Whitehouse.

Please wake the F..K up America!!!!!!!!

Soon there will be 140 million old people on social security and medicare. Some will also be on medicaid and food stamps too. You have most all of the Mexicans and blacks on welfare and the hillbilly whites too, so you have 100 million people on welfare AND 140 million soon on SS and Medicare, so that's most of the nation. The reality is those 100 million on welfare are not working and not paying into SS and Medicare and that bankrupts SS and Medicare so there is NO WAY to pay those 80 million baby boomers SS and Medicare, and, at the same time, those 80 million baby boomers going onto the government is going to cost a lot more than welfare does, and they are no longer going to be paying taxes so they won't be paying for welfare. Soon there isn't going to be anyone left paying for welfare nor for SS and Medicare, so ALL of that stuff is going to have to end, all of it, not just the welfare.

A man get get as much as $2,700 a month in cash out of SS and full medical care for himself and his spouse who may have paid zero into medicare. Imagine the expense of paying the 60 million people who are now on SS and Medicare every month and add in the 80 million baby boomers going onto SS and Medicare, and at the same time you have most of the Mexicans and blacks in gangs and on welfare and also in the prisons which costs a fortune. All of this spending will be ended for lack of tax money. You can't get blood out of a turnip. The government is NOT going to borrow $120 trillion dollars to pay out SS and Medicare, and there is hardly anyone working anymore.

Asians and Indians,(from India) unlike the lazy illegal and legal latinos, blacks, and whites, support themselves and their families. Go to any ER, or SS office, or Social Services City/County/State office and look who's waiting for free services. Actually, there are more Mexicans per capita than any other race/nationality. Mexican pendejos are all welfare leeches...
