LBJ changed the SS fund. In fact I do not think there is a SS fund. LBJ had all SS contributions sent directly into the federal budget. This was to reduce the national debt by using SS funds. Funds still go directly into the federal budget. LBJ a good democrat that decided poor people should get a bigger handout. Presidents since have added to the benefits.
In the ACA, I understand that the death panel raises its nasty head when an individual reaches the magic age of 75. At this point THEY determine if you live or die. Think how many billions will be saved if you can get rid of all of these non productive old people. When will you be 75?
Some churches have joined in to have illegal kids stay in U. S. These churches should be taken off of the 'no taxes' for churches and have all of their assets taxed at 60% to pay for the kids they want to keep here. You should pay for what you want, not me. Think about it. .
Hamas is whining that it is an unfair war. Dead: Isarel---5; Hamas----250. Who ever said that war was fair.
It is estimated that the number of illegal kids to enter the country this year is 100,000. The cost per kid per day is estimated to be $250 to $1,000 per day ..... At this rate the cost to the American tax payers will be--$250,000,000 to $1,000,000,000 per day. You do the arithmetic. (That is two hundred, fifty million to one billion dollars per day to care for the kids.) Charity begins at home, send the kids back home immediately. JMO Shame, shame and shame.
That come to between a cost to each of you just to take care of the kids is about $250 to $1,000 per year. Start kicking in. Golly.
I was in Cincinnati over the w/e and I was shocked at how the DOH wasted a zillion dollars. I could not believe on a lot of intersections they have replaced a simple 'stop light' that directed traffic through with minimal problems and built expensive 'round abouts' that are very confusing to replace them... On quite a few other intersections they replaced a simple 'stop light' with one of the most confusing stop lights I have ever seen. No you can't just go across the street. At a simple guess this light fixture and increased paving must have cost the city several million dollars each. The DOH individuals plus the politicians that that approved and wasted so much of the city's money should be fired immediately.
Need I say more for you to see how gov't wastes your money? Shame, shame and shame. MO.
You are brain washed. Worse case yet. BO policies are anti DOW. Feds printing new money plus BO's efforts to kill interest on savings. MO.
As a good church goer. I agree with you. I also believe any politician that votes for or supports the illegals in any way to increase their taxes on their gross a separate 60%. If you want something, you pay for it. I don't want it and I definitely do not want to pay for them. In Obama's word: Period. Let BO be the first to pay. MO......
Obama's tax policies causing businesses to move over seas at a faster rate. Mo
Why does Obama want these illegal kids and women crossing the border. TV news, it is costing the tax payer 252 dollars a day for these people to stay here. That means Obama has to borrow about 11 dollars to pay for them. Our reps are idiots. MO
I vote to have them loaded up and shipped across the border into Mexico. That is where they came from. Mexico let them in, let Mexico feed them. mo
Obama has a political reason for the border surge of illegals. What, I don't know, but I do know it is not a good reason for the country. It is for one of his ideal logical plans to convert the U. S. into some form of socialism or communism. JMO.
MO, you are a real socialist/communist. When over half of the voters are registered as democrats and are receiving gov't welfare benefits and are promised more by the party they will vote their pocket book and vote for the democrat that promises to give them more.
a democrat that is very disappointed in his party. Shame, shame and shame.
At the rate science is progressing the lab will be able to convert CO2 plus H2O back into oil. No, it is not science fiction. I expect this to happen in less than 30 years.
Not this year, the drought supposedly will cost the CA food growers big time. It is estimated they will lose at least $2 billion dollars because of the drought.
What surprises me is that the people in the western part of the country do not realize that severe droughts come there in cycles. Great growing weather to disaster growing weather. MO
take Obama's illegal immigrants and support them. Gov't estimated cost per kid is $252/day. It is time for citizens and the governors of the states to wake up. Most of the states can't afford to take care of citizens much less all of the illegals here plus the vast numbers that are on the way.
For what ever reason, I don't know, but it appears the Obama administration wants to drown the U. S. with illegals. Just MO. Shame, shame and shame.
Charity begins at home. Send the illegals home, immediately. MO
The present middle east problems began with Jimmy Carter and his right wing advisors deciding that the Shah was and evil leader. Jimmy ran the Shah off and replaced him with the radical Islamic leaders.
True, the Shah was not an ideal leader but he kept the country in a reasonable state. Yes, during his 20 year reign about 2000 Iranians were executed: about a 100/year. As soon as the radicals took control, the first year they were in power they slaughtered about 20,000 citizens that did not agree with them.
Let us put blame where it belongs for middle east problem. You can give Jimmy almost all of the credit.
This is just MO.
