It’s going to happen no matter what. Blaming the “right” is stupid. The “right” has absolutly NO POWER whatsoever.
It’s NOT a “fiscal cliff”....it’s a SPENDING CLIFF!!!!
Something is going to kill Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid and a lot of other stuff. The sooner these things die the sooner the economy can rationalize itself. I am not a young kid contemplating being taxed most of my earnings to support a bunch of old folks. I am an old folk. A third of my income is Social Security. I am stuck on Medicare. Kill the ravening beast now. I would rather the deprivation now than watch the impoverishment of my children and grandchildren in order to support an army of high living bureaucrats and, as the raison d’être for the good livings of those bureaucrats, my SS check, while also being progressively impoverished as that SS check declines rapidly in value even as the number on it stays the same. AND that Medicare isn’t going to be worth more than aspirin and hospice after another year or so anyway.
Soc Security and Medicare should have been killed LONG ago...they are merely in the last throes of end stage cancer, having eaten their host....the “host” that thinks it can live on something someone else pays for.
Republicans should not make any effort to block Obama’s agenda.
Let’s see where he takes us.
Then we cam tell the world: “Obama did this.”
Social Security and Medicare are about the only things that the fiscal cliff will not impact.
If The Left Gets Its Way, Debt And Recession Will Kill Social Security And Medicare
They are being killed by the fact that it is impossible to spend more than you take in forever. Defy the natural laws of economics and mathematics at your peril....
Oh, right, forgot, he’s a black man and mentioning this is racist. It’s all the fault of evil Republicans.
Oh goody. Another “Let’s scare old people” story.
Is ANYTHING ever new under the Democrat sun??
What right?,,, Theres a right?.... Where?....
They need to look back over the last four years to see what drove us over the cliff.
It astounds me how the left successfully blames the right for every disaster time after time. They had the whole works four years ago yet, instead of even acknowledging our budget problems they went on the largest spending spree in history.
How can we get the word out to the old people sitting at their tvs with no other input.
.... LOL .... this is such a great example of how the left is so successful in getting their point of view out to the public. They get way way .... waaaaaay out in front of an issue and begin sowing and planting their talking points all throughout their adoring media. Then at the same time the leftwardly prone politicians do the same. Suddenly when the event actually happens all they need to do is go on a "See I told you so" tour solidifying the belief in the mind of the public psyche. Thus far they have had a successful 12 years of demonizing Bush for all of his policies ... The constant repetition of a statement aka talking point when repeated often enough is the best way to drill a hole into the mind and make the thought permanent.
Strangely enough .... the left uses this technique 99% of the time in a very predictable way. So much so that we can actually predict their statements! And for some reason .... even though the right is quite aware of their techniques .... they are almost always caught by surprise with next to no response on hand to counteract the brain washing technique of the left. And even then ... the only responses will come from the conservative talking heads and talk show hosts .... without hardly a peep coming out of the mouths of our illustrious elected leaders.
Perhaps in the future there may actually come a time when the right can co-ordinate their responses in a tactical way using both the communication machinery, which mostly preaches to the choir while at the same time having the elected officials verbalizing the ideas on the house and senate floors which will then be relayed to the ears of the public.
Obama owns the fiscal cliff. We need to tell every lefty Obama owns it and don’t forget it.
They voted for this disaster.
One possible solution is starting a review process for young adults. Those who were classified as learning disabled as minors generated SSI for parents - and often automatically get disability as young adults. But the first diagnosis was for schools that wanted extra money for special education, parents who wanted SSI and easier academics for their kids.
So why did you post this @@!#$!#$@#$??? I stopped reading after she blamed the GOP/right for the whole mess.
We are so divided now I looked at the authors name and said Oh woman - socialist. I get it.
