For good reason!!! Obama wants as many people dependent on the government as possible!
Food stamps increased under a Republican controlled House of Representatives and a Republican minority who has filibustered just about every piece of legislation designed to create jobs.

So what were you saying about Obama???

I disagree. She's a standup woman. She made no excuses, nor did she pass the buck. How many of our leaders have ever made the wrong call, or were provided less than adequate information by their staff and made the wrong call as a result? Why don't we let this play out to find out exactly what the problem was and why security wasn't provided and exactly what Hillary Clinton knew in advance of the attack.

I personally believe she's done a terrific job overall, and I would hope one tragic incident would not override her overall performance as Secretary of State. After all, we don't pull our commanders in from the battlefield and fire them simply because somebody screwed up communications and our own troops were killed by friendly fire or innocent civilian lives were lost. In truth, those in charge usually bear a heartfelt regret without any further punishment necessary.

Do you have a link to support that statement? LOL!
The Obama administration has learned a shocking fact. According to a recent poll, when faced with difficult times, most people do NOT turn to the government for help. This revelation has caused the administration to create a new web site called "Government Made Easy" in order that more people can get aid from the government rather than other sources such as savings or family members.

It's a disturbing development, but it's one which shows the true nature of Barack Obama. Rather than government being limited and a short term means of assistance, Obama wants people hooked on government.

I am talking effective total tax rate to effective total tax rate.
Someone making $100K in earned income pays 15.3% payroll taxes PLUS his income tax. Romney did not even pay 15.3%.
Guess what? I'M BACK.
What I said was correct.
The federal government gets almost as much revenues from payroll taxes as it does income/capital gains taxes. It gets around 10% from corporate taxes.
Was that a employee or a employer?? I believe after 250k the SS tax it removed as well..

Ooooh, another conspiracy? Who doesn't love a conspiracy? Are you Michael Moore, by chance?
It's no secret that big oil has an agenda against it's competition...to green energy. You can start with big oil buying up refineries in California and then closing them or buying patients on auto batteries for electric cars and then closing down the manufacturing of said batteries designed for the RAV4 which killed that competition.

It's not a conspiracy for big oil let alone any business to buy out or out-compete its competition.

Now that I know more about your views and your voting record, I have a better understanding of your opinions. I understand how you view Romney favorably. What do you think about his habit of dishonesty? I can't get past it. Also, why do you suppose we can't find a candidate who has the qualities of both producer and lawyer? Can this really be the best we have?

Clinton will be fine and she just displayed what I consider a very valuable characteristic...

A sense of accountability.

She isn't passing the buck, she has clearly said "the buck stops here."

What is the increase to SS this year?? 1.5 percent?? So if you get a whole 1000. a month it will be 1015.. Thats a big increase right?? Have the feds put back the 3 trillion they stole from the system.. As stated before the IOU's at least collect the interest you see in the debt counter..

I don't remember where I read about Obama promising all Federal Employees a 5% increase in their pay next year. I'm sure if you look around you can find it. Another taxpayer funded solar company filed bankruptcy today. Take care.....

I think Romney is a moderate pretending to be a conservative. If he gets elected he will attempt to push a more moderate position, much to the displeasure of his contributors and Congress, which will produce a stalemate. We'll be in this same place or worse four years from now.
I agree he is a moderate but not so much a stalemate like we have now..
