    Bush went from $5.727 trillion to $10.626 trillion.
    Obama went from $10.626 trillion to $19.947 trillion.

    87.7% is bigger than 85.5%.
    $9.321 trillion is a fuck of a lot more than $4.899 trillion.

    Far older than you. As you well know, Social Security is a Ponzi Scam that puts Bernie Maddof to shame!

    IF, you want to go to those tax rates, of course, the brackets would have to be adjusted for inflation and we'd have to change the withholding for Social Security and Medicare. Agreed?

    No, people would do as they did in the past. My four grandparents came from the Old Country around the turn of the century (the last one). None had more than a grade school education. There was no Social Security. My Mother's parents started with my grandfather driving a horse drawn milk wagon and she never worked outside of the home. When he passed away, after they had been married over 50 years, they owned a number of apartment buildings in Chicago. Grandmother lived to 102, though it was insane that she got a monthly check for SS. Never had to work, lived in a beautiful home and then a condo. The other pair started working on farms and she worked for a deli and later bought her own. They also owned the farm and both lived comfortable until they died.

    The difference is, they knew they were personally responsible for their own well being. Oh, my Mom's parents put all three kids through college. What's wrong too with taking care of one's own parents?

    That is a lie. But it sure can't go on forever as it is today can it?
