Whoa!I hope everyone reads the link.
THanks very much MM.
That would be great but will never happen. Even Bubba would be against his own dynasty.
This is disgustin that 40% of the job creators are in that 2% and its never brought up! We despereately need the ones that zero is getting rid of! Every customer I have that is a doctor or surgeon is getting the hell out due to obamacare.
JUst one small area.
It was nice to pay 2% less,4% for employers, me, but I knew it was going to tank the funds,it surely will.
It’s obvious Democrat leadership is going to cause inflation or insufficient funds, what we can do is Starve the Beast 2.0 and prepare for a worse economy with a lot of unfulfilled Democrat-Government promises.
Yep, agreeing to raising the debt ceiling the last time around was another huge mistake, just cut spending from every House bill. There’s no good agreements to be made.
I’ve been watching CNBC lately just to see the Democrats who have to deal with the reality of predictable how bad Democrats will make economics in this country. Disclaimer, I am still a long-term retirement investor, where I think my dividends are re-invested tax free, and it’s one way to beat inflation.
Turbo Tax-5 Sunday morning talk shows- The media hasn’t stopped campaigning for Democrats either.
Ol Bernanke thinks he has everyone fooled and will get a huge stockmarket burst simply by feeding dough to the idiots forever,we shall see.
Mabye for now,its their 3-6 month window to pretend to be fair and balanced since it won’t hurt,no election anywhere in sight.But when it counts the drivebys will be strapped on to Baraq O Santa reading axels every line.
Just to clarify, is your post directed at me personally?
Well I'm home. Above, ME AND BISHOP MALOOLY of the Wilmington Diocese.
Did y'all hear the latest about Biden? Here in Sussex we had a guy running who, in the middle of the campaign and thanks to the entrenched Delaware Blue Blood GOP, got accused of child molestation right after he won a primary and kicked out another GOP Blue Blood that we all hated.
We must be punished when we gather together and use our votes to kick out their beloved, remember Christine O'Donnell.
Anyway, guy's name is Bodenweiser and not a peep heard from his accuser for some 19 years until he won the GOP primary kicking out the beloved Blue Blood who got himself a nice job with the Sussex school board last election, all for the joy of introducing Mike Castle at that year's Delaware Repub convention.
So Joe Biden today, with us in Sussex still smarting over...I mean hey, the guy's accused of child molesting, how we going to defend him? Except those who talked his victim into coming forth didn't give a whit about the victim before his alleged molester took away the beloved's office.
Awful situation but will tell you more. Bodenweiser, who I wrote a long letter endorsing on DelawarePolitics.net, quit the race but somebody didn't tell Biden.
So today, Biden congratulates Eric Bodenweiser for winning, one of the worst gaffes that man has ever made.
It's going to be a heavy tax burden to pay all the interest on the massive amount of debt accumulated during the reign of King Barry. Our best hope is that with good sound conservative economic policy, we'll have strong growth and a very strong supply response in our economy that will contain inflation, and interest rates won't have to rise too much to control inflation. But taxes will eventually have to increase on the middle class to pay for the economic policy disasters of the Obama administration and the huge mountain of debt accumulated between 2009 and 2016. As Romney and Ryan said so wisely..."attacking us is not an economic plan." That's all the democrat leaders do now--they just attack Republicans and make repeated false statements about economic policy and America's federal debt crisis. Where are the economists in this administration and why are they silent about the destructive long-term impact of our exploding federal debt? I assume genuine qualified economists have been completely silenced by order of the White House. Well that means the GOP has an opportunity to bring forward some real economists to make our case that spending has to be cut by an amount at least equal to tax increases, and not through phony gimmicks like saying "we're winding down two wars". That's totally phony because that statement assumes the wars were planned to go on forever, which is completely false. The House Republicans must not agree to any deal that doesn't cut spending (with real spending cuts) by at least as much as any tax increases.
Let's just hope amnesty is not pilied upon all the rest. The economy can withstand only so much.
Even if economic growth never returns to the robust growth rates we have between 2003 and 2007, if we don’t cut the budget deficit substantially next year then interest rates on federal debt will eventually have to increase substantially. Without serious deficit reduction now, there will be so much debt in a few more years and so much interest expense on debt that bond investors will rationally conclude that the only way to pay all the interest is for the Fed to create much more money and inflate the economy to generate more tax revenue. Bond investors will then sell Treasury bonds and drive up interest rates so that they are compensated for the higher real inflation rates resulting from all our money printing. So if deficits and the growth of debt are not cut back very soon, there’s no way out of higher interest costs and eventually higher taxes to pay all that interest on our massive federal debt.
It was nice to pay 2% less,
And no Republican ever mentions that Bush proposed putting that same 2% in a private account IF the payer wished to do so. It would have reduced “unfunded liability” of the SS program, instead of what Obama has “given” the employees of America, which has increased the liability and reduced the potential amount a retiree would eventually be able to collect.
Why has there been total silence on this fact?
You’re so right. You could have heard crickets out of Juan McCain who was all busy with campaign finance reform dear Lord I sleep better every night knowing McCain worked so hard on that piece of stupid so NOT of concern to most Americans. Thank God our candidate ig nored the elected Repub president to build his legacy on campaign finance reform rather than silly stuff like reducing debt and economic nonsense.
Uh, ain't that "horses' doovers"??? ;o)
