    MOST of the kids parents on the school lunch assist program have jobs. MOST of the people using various welfare programs have jobs. MOST...... Almost ALL have jobs. The problem isn't with the welfare of the workers, it's the welfare of the employers. If the Employer can't afford to pay the worker enough so the worker can afford to live on maybe that business shouldn't be in business in the first place. So the Government subsidizes the Employer by giving the worker subsidized income. Meanwhile, the employer buys another home in Malibu, a new Yacht in Florida, a Chalet in Aspen, goes to a nice South Sea Vacation for the 4th time this year. When they raised the minimum wage here a few years ago, they interviewed a person that owned a chain of McDonalds who said it would make it hard to stay in business. He would have to cut costs in his business by laying off people and raising prices. He was at the Air Port headed for his 6th vacation to Hawaii with his Family for the year. Not once did he bring up about cutting back on his luxuries. What's funny now, McDonalds has become a higher than the minimum wage job today due to competition for workers.

    You want to slow down on the Entitlements? End Corporate Welfare. But you don't want to talk about that part do you.

    Since you were to lazy to google it, I will provide it for you. We spend at least 3 times more on mandatory entitlements than we do on military. The military budget is part of the discretionary spending, and is about 15% of the total budget. Mandatory entitlement spending is Near 60% of the total spending, and it will continue to rise. Don’t let anyone tell you the military budget is the cause of the deficit.

    Actually....I am right.


    "I didn’t say that the right hates wealth. I said there is growing resentment of billionaires on the right."

    A distinction without a difference.




    You remind me of nothing so much as Confederate General Wise, chased by Union General Cox, referring to his retreat a 'retrograde movement' of his troops.
    Nice retrograde movement, there.

    You made a bunch of assertions, you provided ZERO links to support any of them, and you are just plain stupid. Other than that, good post.

    well, I just will say one thing, if the demofks hate their money so much, give it all away. Stand up and do the right thing. Anyone not asking them to that is a loser.

    You can take out the 38% for SSI and Medicare. I paid for those for over 50 years and I still pay into it even after I receive the benefits. Those aren't "Benefits". That's my money. I paid for it. That's not the Governments money. It's not Tax Money. It's supposed to be like a trust fund. Now, redo your figures using real data instead of the baked figures.

    Lol
    And the funny thing is, generally people are at the station in life they deserve…

    I have never been able to understand envy, It always had seems so silly to me. What does what someone else has have to do with me?

    Worse yet, using the biggest monopoly ever to exist(the federal government) To redistribute? Now that’s a fuck up even a child can see...

    Yep,
    Progressivism/socialism is all about control and hypocrisy.
