    in fairness, you plan on living longer than your people did last time they overhauled SS.... so. You gotta pay to play.

    My insurance didn't go up at all.

    Did you even know you had gotten a tax cut in 2009? I was. It was nice while it lasted. But we can't keep adding to the deficit like that. I'll have to give up my Starbucks...or quit smoking.

    Obama got his coveted tax increases on the dirty rich.

    Now he is triangulated.

    By your own assessment, Obama raised taxes in 2013. The President give-th one term and take-th the next. But, many a liberal has been screaming on this board that Obama has not or will not raise taxes on the Middle Class. I am not the 1% and by your own assertion, I am paying more because "we can't keep adding to the deficit like that". By Obama's assertion, the rich need to pay their fair share.

    How do you explain that delta?
