Yes as long as Baraq, Bernanke, and Lew can run up those trillion dollar deficits and pay the “comfortably poor” off, life is good.

Once the markets stop this charade, it won’t be so comfortable anymore, for all of us.

Progressives always fail the proletariat, but they never seem to realize it.

Of course they do, they just don't care. It's all about them wielding power and living like princes.

“it will be a race to try and scrape to the bottom of the barrel for the most benefits.”

In America, the response will be:

You told me I needed this benefit.

You told me that I deserve this benefit.

You told me that I’m entitled to get this benefit.

If I’m entitled to get it, then I’m entitled to take it.

Give me what is rightfully mine!
