And this trend has played out how many times before? LOL The Country knows Democrats and Hillary are toxic sludge.

Hmm, Hi Mandy!!! So you think it is a lie that Bush wants to privatize SS & Raise the retirement age for getting benefits and wants to end Medicare?

 

 

And the only ones who think Dems are sludge are the guys that gave us 4000 dead US Troops on a lie, and do you really think anyone cares what they think?

They are just responses to people like you. You were actually looking for an apology, after all the lies you have posted here John? Seriously? And you talk about insults, and then you prove you are no better than those you claim make insults? Really John? LMAO! You know John, they call people like you hypocrites.

2 trillion folks.

Stolen from social security for war and tax cuts.

 

 

December 6, 2007 - "Virtually every economics Ph.D. who has worked in a prominent role in the Bush Administration acknowledges that the tax cuts enacted during the past six years have not paid for themselves--and were never intended to. Harvard professor Greg Mankiw, chairman of Bush's Council of Economic Advisers from 2003 to 2005, even devotes a section of his best-selling economics textbook to debunking the claim that tax cuts increase revenues."

http://zzpat.tripod.com/cvb/dec_2007/tax_cuts_dont_boost_revenue.html

 

 

December 22, 2009 - "The curious may want to know why the Bush tax cuts are set to expire in the first place. After all, if then-President George W. Bush and Congress thought they were a good idea when they passed them in the early 2000s, why make them temporary?

 

The answer is that President Bush and a complicit Congress didn’t want to show the magnitude of the deficits that would result from their tax cuts. To hide those deficits as they were pushing them through they used a variety of accounting tricks. One of those tricks was attaching expiration dates so that, on paper, there wouldn’t be any long-term costs. This made the long-term deficit picture look fairly rosy on paper even as it doomed Bushs successor and the current Congress to cleaning UP the mess."

Weird eerie and weird that the Pelosi-Reid Democrat Congress of Change EXTENDED these despised tax cuts for ANOTHER TWO YEARS! And Obama approved it after campaigning against it! TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH AT A TIME OF WAR!!!

 

And all the pointed fingers and emoticons, adorable as they are, won't change that my little Hoper-Changers!

Privatization, either of the entire system or in part via "carve -outs", requires handing Social Security over to Wall Street and the ups and downs of that fiscal rollercoaster.

 

Wrong ... as usual.

 

All personal investment freedom (privatization) choices would be voluntary.

 

That's "freedom" and "voluntary".

 

I can type that slower for you authoritarians.

I'll settle for hillary just being a plain Ole us citizen no job in federal government

And if found conpsiring to cov er up what actually took place in benghanzi, no retirement from any federal office position. Lets see who pays her $200k for speaking fees again.

 

Hell that could bring Billy boy's value down as well. karma.

 

Oh, that will make her divorce Bill because she would need half of what he obtained by her backing up his lying ass. The American justice system does work when applied honestly as it does corrupted.

That is nonsense. Anyone who runs for president as the Republican or the Democratic candidate can demand fees of $100 K plus expenses for the rest of his/her life. Hillary will never divorce Bill. Whatever the attraction they feel for each other, it is beyond both money and sex.

 

Benghazi was simply a mistake due to bad intelligence. The US does not have that an adequate number of people who speak Arabic dialects. Arabic is not one language, but a collection of dialects, which vary by region. Moroccans are unintelligible to Saudis and vice versa.

Prediction: Older Voters Will Go Democratic in 2016

 

by Ernie Powell | huffingtonpost.com | Posted: 12/15/2015 4:59 pm EST

Excerpts:

 

"For two presidential cycles and during midterm elections as far back as the mid 1990's, older voters have given more votes to Republicans than Democrats. This will change in 2016 and it will change dramatically. Older voters will support Democrats in 2016.

 

The reasons for this sea change are simple. The Republican Party has fundamentally gone off the deep end. Nearly every single Republican presidential candidate offers a harmful and dramatic set of changes for Social Security that will, without question, lower benefits.

 

And lowering benefits means less money in beneficiaries' monthly Social Security checks. To add insult to injury, many of these same Republican Presidential hopefuls suggest an equally bad set of ideas for Medicare that will give seniors a more expensive and less accessible health care system.

 

For example, Jeb Bush wants to privatize Social Security, raise the retirement age and end Medicare. Ted Cruz calls for privatizing Social Security, raising the retirement age and cutting benefits. John Kasich supports privatizing Social Security and cutting benefits. Ben Carson favors raising the retirement age and Marco Rubio would like to raise the retirement age and has considered cutting benefits. Only Donald Trump has steered clear of these kinds of proposals, at least so far.

 

The substance of these ideas is downright frightening. Raising the age for eligibility is a benefit cut, pure and simple. Privatization, either of the entire system or in part via "carve -outs", requires handing Social Security over to Wall Street and the ups and downs of that fiscal rollercoaster.

 

No one is opposed to investing for the future but it ought to be in addition to, not in replacement of, the guarantee of Social Security. And, one has to ask if there is some kind of memory lapse here because Social Security carve outs were rejected back in 2005, when President Bush used his political capital to push the idea. It went nowhere and died within a year.

 

Republicans have never been this blunt before in expressing their ideas about these programs. In the past, bad ideas were typically hidden in a broader argument. This time, they just say it.

 

This is odd because it runs counter to how not only older voters but also the rest of the electorate feel. For example, as William Greider tells us in a recent article in The Nation, "The 2016 election is not actually about personalities. It is about ideas, big ideas for governing that, win or lose, can change the country for better or worse."

 

He goes on to report that "Social Security is arguably the federal government's most popular program, more efficient and responsive than most. Overwhelming majorities value it across party lines, age brackets and even income levels.

 

It's supported by Republicans (81 percent)and by Democrats (94 percent)and by independents (91 percent)independents (91 percent), from Baby Boomers to Generation Xers and to millennials. What is most relevant is that strong majorities in all sectors - even 62 percent of Republicans -think the government should consider increasing the benefits."

 

The same is true for Medicare. In fact, nearly every pollster will tell you both Democratic and Republican voters strongly support Social Security and Medicare.

 

These hammers of change proposed by the Republicans will cost them in election 2016. It will cost them because the 75.4 million baby boomers (who have reached "senior age")are in worse shape economically than their parents. They don't have the savings; their 401(k)s have sunk in value, and the equity in the homes they own has diminished - witness the recession just a few years ago.

 

Voters, who worry about paying their bills, don't want their Social Security benefits messed with. And, they certainly don't want their health care costs to go up. Older voters who are 75 years of age and over are equally nervous, if not terrified, of these changes.

 

The best way to summarize the Republican presidential candidate approach to retirement and health security for the aging voter is to say it is similar to telling a person in deep dangerous water to throw away their life raft.

 

As impossible as it seems, there is another backdrop that makes things worse. For only the third time in four decades, Social Security recipients will not be getting an annual cost of living adjustment (COLA)next year. Their checks will stay the same. although we all know that living expenses have gone up for retirees and other recipients.

 

Over the course of December of this year, millions of Social Security recipients are receiving letters from the Social Security Administration (SSA)announcing this bad news.

 

This has to do with the formula used by SSA to calculate the COLA. It turns out that the current measure does not yield any increase in benefits. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)has introduced the Seniors and Veterans Emergency Benefits Act (Save Benefits Act), a bill that will close a tax loophole for Wall Street and use that money to pay for a onetime $580 payment to seniors, veterans, and disabled Americans for 2016 to offset the harm of a zero COLA.

 

It is co-sponsored by a score of Democratic Senators. This bill would undoubtedly provide a deserved relief for seniors, veterans and persons with disabilities, but Republicans have yet to champion this issue.

 

Older voters are the most engaged voting group in America. The zero COLA for 2016 will leave this group looking for a way to express their anger. Mix that with the outlandish and off putting plans proposed for Social Security and Medicare described above and we will see the change anticipated here. Older voters will vote Democratic in 2016."

------------

 

The newest bomb to drop on retired citizens is the plan of Republicans to raise the age of receiving beneifits, privatizing Social Security, and a reduction in benefits. On privatizing Social Security, it requires handing part or all of it over to Wall Street, and we all know what will happen to our benefits if that happens. Medicare reform is also being contemplated by republicans if they are put back in office in 2016.

 

On top of that, Social Security recipients will not get a cost of living increase next year. Senator Elizabeth Warren [D-Mass] has introduced a bill called the 'Seniors and Veterans Emergency Benefits Act' that would gve a one time payment of $580 to seniors, veterans, and disabled Americans for 2016 to offset any harm done by a zero COLA.

 

For many decades, funds were taken out of Social Security and Medicare with nothing being returned, and no long term stocks were invested to maximize the citizens' security fund, so it gave out benefits but earned nothing. We have paid out but didn't earn a single dime on our payments...but people died earlier. Today we have an avalanche of Boomers that have reached senior age and will begin collecting their benefits they have paid into the system over their working years.

 

I am getting convinced that by the time I retire, there will not be any Social Security. Medicare left to get pissed off about anyway. But in the meantime, we will be required to keep paying every two weeks while republicans start playing around with the remnants of our entitlement benefits.

 

No matter what your political agenda is, think of your own survival in your senior years and vote Democrat to ensure you get what you have paid for all these years. Your vote is important to your wellbeing.

I don't think so. But I could be wrong.

If I was running for President I would tell all the old folks I would be doubling their SSI SS benefits if elected.

 

I would give jobs Americans need and the factory's to put America to work.

 

I would give Free college educations, trade schools, and apprenticeships into corporations and raise the minimum wage to $19. an hour.

 

I would draft everybody up the age of 55 which would be the new retirement age, in the service for two years.

 

I would repeal all gun laws, and make using a gun in any crime an immediate death penalty.

 

I would make prostitution, abortion, beer, pornography legal.

 

I would make churches donate 60% to charity's, and perform 500 hours of community service work a month to qualify for tax free religious exemption.

 

 

Please folks, don't ask me how I will do all this, I am playing my "Trump Card."
