I agree with you to a great extent on much of your sentiments- but people were made to pay into these things throughout working years or they would not be able to get them at all. They could get SSI or Medicaid in some cases but not those other two things.
That's true. I think if they want those programs and don't want any cuts nor to be means tested and they do not want vouchers for Medicare, then realistically we need to create a national sales tax or VAT in order to fund SS and Medicare. The payroll tax is way too small so now the government has over $121 trillion in unfunded promises in Social Security and Medicare.

So if you divide the $120 trillion promised to the baby boomers in SS and Medicare by say an average of 30 years they will live on SS and Medicare, we need about $4 trillion a year to pay out SS and Medicare. So if people don't want cuts, then we need a big tax every person would pay whether they are young, old, retired, whatever in order to come up with that kind of money. The payroll tax is not going to fund it anymore because people are living so much longer and advanced medical care is very expensive now and the SS payments have gone from $200 a month when it started up to as much as $2,700 a month for double dippers. So they need a new tax to pay for it.

And the thing is that in reality the tea party is pro socialism and in need of a European style tax to fund the things they want from the government. They thought that somehow the government could come up with $4-5 trillion per year to pay them SS and Medicare. The only way we could do that is with a new big tax. Otherwise the government is going to have to start phasing out those programs and only give them to dirt poor people.

What kind of help did they get? My great-grandfather was "given" a job with the CCC and did mostly lineman work- but it was hard work and minimal money- which he sent home to his parents/younger siblings. Such work was considered "charity" back then.
That is a good point. IN those days a government job was considered charity. Good point. Yes, they were required to send most of it home to their families. They would get $25 and have to send $20 of it home. They even gave some of the kids part time jobs when they were in school, grading papers and things like that. It's really something that now we have almost the same percentage of people on the government as we had during the Dust Bowl. Wow. And the same president gets reelected. Something is seriously wrong in this country.

Well, I have thought about the fact that well off people over 65- with lots of income from different sources don't really NEED the social security but still receive it. Also, many will use up much, much more than they paid in, especially with Medicare. On the other hand, they COULD have invested the money in other ways if they hadn't been forced to pay it in. I definitely think it should be phased out/redone somehow for the future generations. However, I don't know why it's almost the first thing to be brought up in terms of "cuts" when it's the only thing people really "paid into" with a supposed guarantee. If it was just something that had just come out of the government in better times- like college grants and WIC- as a nice thing to do for old people regardless of other income, then I would be more open to cutting it.

Yes, we also now have more government jobs being produced than private sector jobs. The difference is that now the government jobs are the better paying ones and considered to be permanent with good retirement benefits and are not considered charity jobs.

Not only was Obama strong in states with the highest percentage of college graduates, he was also strong in states with the highest average household incomes. For example, the five states with the HIGHEST average household incomes (which, not coincidentally, were also among the states with the highest percentage of college graduates).
Maryland $67,469
New Hampshire $67,287
Connecticut $67,165
New Jersey $65,072
Massachusetts $62,809
Virginia $62,776

Higher unemployment, more & more debt, record numbers on foodstamps, higher taxes, tax dollars given aways to failed companies both in and out of this country, liberties lost and less freedom....and you call that smart? Interesting.

In the 99% white, and overwhelmingly Republican county above - with a 45.4% poverty rate - perhaps they are too poorly educated to understand that Gov. Romney was complaining about them as well when he criticized the "47%."

*chuckle*

:o)
maybe they wanted a job. In many all black precincts in Philadelphia Romney didn't get a single vote. Yet 47% of those black youths are unemployed and over 15% of all the blacks are unemployed. They voted for government cheese instead of work.

With the exception New Mexico, the ten poorest states all voted for Romney. So much for out of touch Mitten's nitwit theory about losing due to "gifts from Obama."

Poor people are poor people regardless of color. If those 47% of black city kids are unemployed, I assume that they wanted a job just as much as the busted Kentucky country folk.

But in both groups you'll find conditions and attitudes that stifle the work ethic: illiteracy or semi-literacy; mental illness; poor attitude towards authority; plain ol' low-IQ simple-mindedness..etc., etc.

What's pathetic about the KY voters is that they would fall into the above category, but STILL think that they strongly share the values of Republican donors at a Romney fundraising dinner.

Heck, the Romney family does not even believe in military service to the USA. Gov. Romney set the example and every last one of his sons followed in his footsteps. LOL!

if those blacks had wanted a job they would have voted for Romney and not the welfare queen princess obammy.

You are ignorant about KY and it's voters. We made the right call and are being proved right daily. You fools voted for welfare princess obammy and he is leading to your destruction and enslavement.

I didn't see obammy in the military. That's right they didn't take openly gay people when he was of age.
