Social Security is our money paying for "tax breaks" for the rich!

It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office.

Republicans care far less about The People than even Putin!

The Republicans want to get rid of Social Security, Medicare and medicaid. They claim it is a drain on the federal budget and want to raise retirement to 70, to "save" the program.

Personally, I never thought much about Russia having any kind of retirement, but now I read they wanted to raise the retirement age for men from 60 to 65 and raise the age for women from 55 to 63!


Putin Offers Woman A Better Pension Deal

Russia's Putin offers women a better pensions deal after popularity hit

MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday he was cutting a proposed retirement age for women from 63 to 60 years as he watered down draft legislation to reform the pensions system which has hurt his popularity and stirred protests.

In a TV address, Putin, who once promised to never raise the retirement age, took responsibility for the first time for the reforms which he said were needed to protect state finances, ensure stability in society and safeguard national security.

Proposed reforms put forward by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s government had envisaged raising the retirement age to 65 from 60 for men and to 63 from 55 for women.

Social Security and other social assistance programs such as Medicare, VA benefits, healthcare, education, housing, food assistance are not driving any budget deficits. They are all small slivers of the federal budget, Social Security is funded by payroll contributions.... almost SIXTY PERCENT of the federal budget if for military.

Think about it, the United States spends more on military machines of death than ALL OTHER COSTS combined! It isn't healthcare that is driving the deficits, it certainly isn't Social Security or Medicare, not housing assistance for the poor or infirm, even education is less than six percent of the budget. The ONLY ridiculous drain on our economy is our military machine.... we are not the world police!

All elected representatives should be required to live by the same standards as those they are supposed to represent.



The retirement of elected representatives should follow all of the conditions imposed on The People. Certainly, let the man retire and collect his pension after he turns 70... until then, he gets nothing, no pension, no healthcare, nothing.

The Republicans are now trying to claim THEY are fighting for pre-existing conditions and they have the audacity to claim Democrats want to take away all of your Obamacare protections. How stupid can people be?! The Republicans have fought tooth and nail against Obamacare for the past decade. But now, a week before election, they want you to forget everything that has transpired since the Democrats gave The People Obamacare and they now want you to believe Democrats want to take it away!

The primary issue with socialism is the misconception that it really means a communist dictatorship. Little known, or at least realized by rabid anti socialist believers is how much good socialism has been for The People.... ordinary people like you and me.

I used to think Reagan was the worst POTUS in my life, but then came Bush43.... I really didn't think it could get much worse, but here we are!

Republicans would like The People believe Social Security is a massive burden on the federal budget, even though it is still better than 90% fully financed through worker/employer taxes specific to the program. The actual effect this has on the budget is little.... the program might be 695 billion dollars, but more than 600 billion is collected from worker/employer funding totally aside from income taxes paid.

Social Security is the most successful federal programs ever initiated. With continued proper management it can easily be made to perform for many decades to come.
