    1 Social security. I dont care what you put into , We get way more out of it then we put in. People need to plan for the retirements for those who put into it should get what they put in and thats IT !! If you dont save for your retirement then you deal with it.. It is a PONZI scheme just with a different name

    2 Welfare. I understand people are down on their luck but when you have some families on it for generations there is a problem. They need to have an end date to this say 2 years max at a time.


    3. Medicare. Again you need to plan for your retirements. Start when your young.
    4 Foreign aid

    5 Endless wars.. We got Bin Ladin get out of Afghanistan , Iraq and bring the troops home and protect our borders.

    6. Free (our tax dollars) money for college .. Sorry if you want a higher education work while your going through college. IT can be done , it is done all the time!!!


    9 Ear marks

    10 This healthcare law we can not afford. Either fix it or do away with it.

    I know the people on the left will say I hate poor people which is not true . I grew up poor
    But people need to take care of themselves and quit asking for hand outs.

    We weren't in all that much debt before Bush and the Republicans controlled both houses and the presidency. If we never had the Bush tax cuts and the war in Iraq and the "drugs for votes" bill, Bush and the Republicans never would have handed Obama a failing economy and trillions in debt.

    Voting more Republican into office will only make it worse. They're too greedy. They lie too much. And they love ideology over country. Besides al Qaeda, they are the worst thing that could happen to this country.

    "Generation Gimme." The Democrats have created millions & millions of Entitlement addicts. They taught them to believe they were entitled to someone elses income. And now they actually do believe that. In fact they even think they deserve it. Things are going to get much worse. The Democrats have created an Entitlment Frankenstein. They're out of control. Third World here we come.

    Many of us put real money into it. The difference of purchasing value between thoswe 1960, 70 80 and 90 bucks we contributed and the 2011 bucks we get back is rather dramtic, you know.

    FYI There are about 3,000,000 people on welfare. Most of them are children. Everything you think you know about welfare is probably wrong.

    Not one worker out of twenty can save enough to pay for any major illness. I'd wager that You cannot save enough in twenty years of working to pay for a bout of cancer.


    Most Foreign aid is probably welfare to some US arms merchant.

    I'm on board with that idea. I've been onboard with that idea since the mid 60s.

    I understand the sentiment. I think its shortsighted.

    The fact that you use the word in this way suggests you don't even know what it means.



    I'm not thrilled by the new plan, either. The old system bites, the new system bites, too.


    Yes, me too. So what. I don't think you hate the poor, I think you just don't really understand the problem. You position about welfare is a damned fine example of how much propaganda you've been confused by.


    Oh I know. EVerybody but you is on welfare wah! wah! wah!

    Go read a book. Go learn something REAL about these issues.

    Blaming the poor for this economy is the height of stupidity
