GolfButtBoy, I hope to see you destitute, wandering the mean streets during a cold Boise winter, rooting out of dumpsters and begging for a pittance! SS and Medicare are paid for out of the workers checks, and NOT out of your pocket!

You are a mean spirited asshole!

And you get those monies refunded from the misnamed Earned Income Tax Credit, which DOES come out of my pocket.   And so do the monies which cover the shortfall in those programs every year. 

Now run away in shame, you stupid little fucker.

The United States federal government expects to spend $3.8 trillion dollars in 2015 – that sounds like a lot of money, and it is. That’s about $12,000 for each woman, man and child living in the United States. It’s also about 21 percent of the entire United States economy.1

 

But the government is not just a bill collector and spender. At its best, each of the dollars our government spends can advance the common good and Americans’ quality of life through public investments in infrastructure, systems and structures that only government is positioned to make – investments in things like court systems, clean water, transportation, income security, energy and education.

 

A few examples: the federal government provides an average of thirty percent of state government revenues for things like transportation and education; most Americans will rely on government programs like Social Security and Medicare as they age; and half of the nation’s public schools receive federal aid. Without the federal government, our communities and families would not be the same.

 

And we all contribute to government, whether we engage through voting or other civic involvement, or whether we simply go to work and pay our taxes. In fact, in 2015, 80 percent of federal revenues will come from individual income and payroll taxes.

 

It is in all of our best interests – and it is our responsibility -- to see that our tax dollars are raised and spent in ways that reflect our priorities. To do that we need to know where that money is going, and how budget decisions are made. Federal Budget 101 gives you that crucial information.

 

Throughout Federal Budget 101, you’ll see that some words are in bold text. Those are words you can find in the Federal Budget Glossary.

Junkies in the Peoples Comm. of Mass. sell food stamps on Facebook. I know it is a disease. It is not a choice to sell your foodstamps in one post and have a selfie with a fistful of $100s in the next. My question is does the selling of foodstamps add to the local economy? Of course it does. The junkie buys more smack so the dope dealer has tax free income to buy nikes. The Junkie gets the medicine for his disease. Narcan sales increase . Narcan makes more money. The buyer of the food stamps gets food for 50 cents on the dollar and the market makes money. The only person that loses is the wage earner who has to pay for all of this. Unfortunately that is me. Would it be ok if i reduced the tax bite for myself to start buying the rampant sale of foodstamps in the Peoples Comm. of Mass.? I think so. I have the disease of wanting to reduce my taxes. Think i will get on foodstamps buy buying them from junkies. It is good for the economy. Trump 2020.

merrill is soooooo dishonest when it comes to discussing Social Security.

 

The problem is that he won't honestly discuss them.
 
No one should bother responding to anything he claims until he actually engages in a honest debate.


And so far he hasn't demonstrated a willingness to do that.
 
He just posts garbage then does not respond to counterposts.
 
All he does now is regurgitate, regurgitate, and regurgitate the same nonsense.
 
So why should any of us waste time with him?
 
I won't.  
 
Not until he actually shows he'll engage in a honest debate.
 
To do that, he has to start by responding to this:
 
http://www.liberalforum.org/index.php?/topic/204015-social-security-is-backed-with-billions-in-govt-bonds/?p=1059708082
 
But knowing him, he won't.

The Forgotten Achievements of Government

Print this ArticleShare on FacebookTweet this

"For many Americans, government is the Inspector Clouseau of institutions � bungling and inept. But the record shows this is not true."

Although conservatives portray government as incompetent, public sector programs have actually amassed an admirable record of success in a wide variety of policy areas.

One of the most persistent myths about American government is that it has a poor record of achievement. Conservatives and libertarians have constantly promoted the idea that government fails more often than it succeeds. They have been telling Americans for years that government is an incompetent institution that has achieved little of real value in society. As one conservative critic put it: “The more important question is not why government is so big … but why with few exceptions, it fails in even its simplest tasks.”1 Another critic, Charles Murray, puts it even more bluntly: “The reality of daily life is that, by and large, the things the government does tend to be ugly, rude, slovenly – and not to work.”2 Or consider the bold challenge uttered by Rush Limbaugh on one of his radio shows: “With the exception of the military, I defy you to name one government program that has worked and alleviated the problem it was created to solve. Hhhmmmmmmm? I'm waiting. . . . Time's up.”3

The Stereotype: Government as Bungling and Inept

Many of us have bought into this image of government as a bungler – a bunch of bureaucrats that can’t do anything right. Ask most Americans and they will tell you: if you want something messed up, have the government do it. We’ve all heard the jokes:

Q: How many government bureaucrats does it take to screw in a light bulb? 
A: Two. One to assure everyone that everything possible is being done while the other screws the bulb into the water faucet.

Q: How many government workers does it take to screw in a light bulb? 
A: Two. One to screw it in and one to screw it up.

This popular view of government as a low-achieving screw-up is echoed in many surveys as well. When asked, “When the government in Washington decides to solve a problem, how much confidence do you have that the problem will be solved?” only four percent of Americans said “a lot.” Sixty-four percent said “none at all” or “just a little.” Of these, more than a three out of four said the reason was “government is incompetent” not that “those problems are often difficult to solve.”4 Surveys also show that a large majority of citizens (70%) believe that “government creates more problems than it solves."5 Clearly, for many Americans, government is the Inspector Clouseau of institutions.

But how accurate is this popular image of the government as a bumbling fool? Actually, this is largely a stereotype – one based primarily on myth and selective anecdotal evidence. Of course anyone can cite a number of failed government policies – such as the war on drugs or public housing programs. But it is wrong to leap from this kind of anecdotal evidence to the conclusion that government as a whole is inherently incompetent. The reality is this: most government programs are successful most of the time. By and large, the public sector does a good job providing clean water to drink, keeping the peace, sending out Social Security checks, reducing workplace injuries, ensuring aircraft safety, feeding the hungry, putting out fires, protecting consumers, and so on.

Once we begin to look at the actual performance of major government programs, we see that the vast majority of them have produced substantial improvement in the problem areas that they are addressing – they have produced successful results. This is not the conventional wisdom, but it is what the evidence shows if you bother to look at it. Let’s consider some of that evidence.

There is no doubt that multipliers occur.  That's how the economy works. 

The problem liberals don't understand is that before government can hand out that money, they have to take it OUT of the economy, where it would have been used and multiplied without government "help".

wrong again .....

 

Outsourcing  usa jobs, pushing tax dollar supported privatization, spending trillions on the war for worldwide oil control, obstructing single payer health care and killing good wages is part of the larger problem..... 

 

Mergers, leveraged buyouts, hostile takeovers = LOTS OF UNEMPLOYMENT.

The majority of American people realize Trump is a fraud and realize Trump the Rump was a fraud from day one.

 

 

During the 20th century, there were several periods lasting more than ten years when the return on stocks was negative.

 

 

After the Dow Jones stock index went down by over 75% between 1929 and 1933, the Dow did not return to its 1929 level until 1953.

 

 

In claiming that the rate of return on a stock investment is guaranteed to be greater than the return on any other asset, Bush was lying. If an investment-firm broker made this claim to his clients, he would be arrested and charged with stock fraud. Michael Milken went to jail for several years for making just this type of promise about financial investments.

 

 

In fact, under the former President Bush’s privatization proposal, a 20-year-old worker joining the labor force today would have seen her guaranteed Social Security benefits reduced by 46%.

 

 

Bush’s own Social Security commission admitted that private accounts were unlikely to make up for this drop in guaranteed benefits. The brokerage firm Goldman Sachs estimated that even with private accounts, retirement income of younger workers would have been reduced by 42% compared to what they would have received if no changes were made to Social Security..

 

 

Former President Bush also misrepresented the truth when he claimed that Social Security trustees say the system will be “bankrupt” in 2042. Bankruptcy is defined as “the inability to pay ones debts” or, when applied to a business, “shutting down as a result of insolvency.” Nothing the trustees have said or published indicates that Social Security will fold as a result of insolvency.

 

 

Until 1984, the trust fund was “pay-as-you-go,” meaning current benefits were paid using current tax revenues. In 1984, Congress raised payroll taxes to prepare for the retirement of the baby boom generation. As a result, the Social Security trust fund, which holds government bonds as assets, has been growing. When the baby boomers retire, these bonds will be sold to help pay their retirement benefits. 

 

 

If the trust fund went to zero, Social Security would simply revert to pay-as-you-go. It would continue to pay benefits using (then-current) tax revenues, and in doing so, it would be able to cover about 70% of promised benefit levels. According to analysis by the Center for Economic and Policy Research, a 70% benefit level then would actually be higher than 2005 benefit levels in constant dollars (because of wage adjustments). In other words, retirees would be taking home more in real terms than today’s retirees do.

 

The system won’t be bankrupt in any sense. On this point, President Bush was “consciously misrepresenting the truth with the intent to deceive.”

 

That is what the dictionary defines as lying.

Social Security FAQ

 

http://www.socialsecurityworks.org/faq/

 

We said we didn't want it. Most people didn't even vote for it. In survey after survey, public opinion polls rank a large tax cut as one the least desirable uses of the federal budget . And Republican and Democratic leaders alike warned the President-select that his tax cut package STINKS.

 

But all to no avail. CONSERVATIVES HAVE YET  to back off from the monstrous, surplus-draining tax cut proposalS that cornerstone THEIR campaign. CONSERVATIVES KEEP telling us that it's for our own good: CONSERVATIVE tax cut will cure our softening economy and stave off the threat of recession by "encouraging capital formation, economic growth, and job creation."

 

At least one group is happy to swallow the CONSERVATIVE tax cut medicine—"the haves and the haves-more," as CONSERVATIVES refer to THEIR supporters.. After all, it is THE WEALTHY taxes THAT GET cut. 

 

Nearly three-fifths of the total benefits of the tax cut package will go to the richest 10% of all taxpayers, and some 43% will go just to the top 1%.

 

But no matter what CONSERVATIVES say, this tax giveaway to the wealthy will not inoculate us against recession. Nor are well-to-do taxpayers suffering from over-taxation, as the CONSERVATIVE team insists. One thing is sure.  Social programs that have already been neglected for more than two decades will continue to suffer AS WILL THE ECONOMY = IT IS DUMB TO PULL MONEY FROM THE ECONOMY.

Defending the Indefensible

The editors of the Wall Street Journal never met a pro-rich tax cut they didn't like. And the CONSERVATIVE tax cut is much to their liking. 

 

CONSERVATIVES ALWAYS SAY AND HAVE BEEN SAYING FOR THE PAST 38 YEARS:

  • "Taxes are too high. Last year [1999], federal tax revenue as a percentage of the economy reached an historic peak—20.4% of GDP." 
  • AS ALWAYS CONSERVATIVES  exceed THEIR its own budget caps and increased its spending beyond REALITY.  WRECKANOMICS IS SUPPLY SIDE ECONOMICS = BORROW AND SPEND.
  • The economy HAS RETURNED TOo wobble. Economic forecasters are sniffing a recession; they are busily lowering growth projections for next year. And for good reason; TRUMP THE RUMP data IS starting to look scary." 

 

THE TRILLION TAX DOLLAR WARS AND TAX CUTS CREATE BIG BIG BIG DEBT!!!
