sticking it to the people who dont like him. again
AARP will still continue to kiss BO’s butt and tell seniors that they can make up the shortfall with AARP’s superb insurance programs.
Hey you POS-in-Chief, how about getting rid of free stuff to illegals and new immigrants who swore they would not be a burden to the American taxpayer.
Shove it up your smelly Obama, Obama.
Only fools, idiots, and progressives are buying your act any more.
There is a trap buried in here somewhere.
I am sure the GOP will be credited with screwing over the old folks.
At least they’re not going to cut welfare payments, EBT cards, subsidized housing or Obama phones. Aunt Zatootie and Uncle Obummer are relieved.
Yea!! it’s the old Charlie Brown/Lucy football show again!
I’m sure the budget has some cuts but then replaces w/tax hikes..
my first thoughts was how about welfare, EBT where they can use at strip club, get beer and wine, pay for their car payments etc.
how about stopping illegals getting free education, welfare, food stamps, health care etc, nah hit the old people who worked but then again the old idiots which voted for this turd pusher agenda deserve everything they get or should I say don’t get .
The north east, are you taking note, , old supposed to be Catholics voting all the time for the Dem regime
same pattern with Obamacare
What a one-trick pony.
He does not know the meaning of the word. Neither did Clinton.
Oh but the media says that it’s the eeeevvvvviiiilllll Republicans who want to cut Medicare! Everybody knows the media wouldn’t lie.
< / is this necessary /s>
Is the Republican leadership looking to cut SS? They need to go after plenty of other things like disability, food stamp and welfare and medicare fraud.
Ben Carson is correct ....this administration /government has done nothing to make our nation stronger.
Agreed, but all entitlements should be cut. Including SS. There simply aren’t enough young people working and the young people aren’t making enough to support the current benefits scheme.
Apparently you like losing elections. The only time the GOP ever won an election is with Catholic support.
Boehner needs to respond in only a statement: How macroeconomics works—the more taken from the private sector, the smaller the private sector. The answer is no, this plan does not have the American Economy’s best interest in it. Record tax revenues are currently being collected, the spending needs to be managed. I, as Speaker of the House, will no longer join this failure.
talking points on how to blame republican’s are going out to the corrupt lapdog media as I type I bet
HUH, not sure what on earth you’re on about but to be clear, those north east Catholic elderly vote Dem, it’s the Dem which cut half a bullion out of medicare, now Obama cuts to SS and yet they still vote for him while they ignore their faith.
Again not sure what on earth you’re on about
Post of the Day!
White Catholics went 60/40 for Romney.
The purpose of tax hikes is not to reduce budget deficits. Tax hikes are intended to allow increases rather than decreases in spending and to fund those fun new programs that O loves so much.
true but the north east with all of it’s Catholics should be the most conservative and it isn’t because they call themselves Catholic but vote against their faith
Then, the federal government has a standing army which is extremely power. Both directly, and indirectly has an impact in your life. Posse Comitatus has been violated many times in our history.
Soon I will be sixty. I'm educated, experienced, well traveled and a Vet. I am a law abiding citizen...
I have been in situations were I could have been killed. I have been seriously injured...
To be honest with everyone, my government scares me.
Your post didn’t make any sense.
Manc merely pointed out that members of the Catholic church are majority democrat voters, since Protestants can’t make up for both the Catholic and the atheist voters, of course republicans generally lose.
my social security is not an entitlement, it is earned just like unemployment pay (when not abused for 99 weeks) because it was taken from my income without my consent. if i had a choice i would have NEVER opted for social security. cut welfare, entitlements, food stamps and other parasitic payments.
“my social security is not an entitlement, it is earned just like unemployment pay”
Not true. Your SS is an entitlement because the money being provided to today’s recipient is being taken out of working people’s income.
“because it was taken from my income”
True. You did have SS funds stolen from you to give to others throughout your working career. The problem is that those at that time felt an entitlement to make a claim to your income. Now you feel entitled to make a claim to other people’s income.
It is a broken system and if any private investor did the same thing that our government is doing, then they would name them Madoff or Ponzi....
The entire SS system is evil and heartbreaking.
Maybe the Republicans should bring Catholics into the coalition.
Another post that doesn’t make sense, you think the democrats are the only party that tries to win Catholic support?
The republicans try, but they cannot change their platform and drop life and marriage to do it, no one is excluding Catholics out of any “coalition”, it is the opposite, republicans for generations have been trying to figure out a way to get Catholics to switch parties.
Which is why so many republicans are dropping life and marriage. Folks like Portman et al.
I guess the Republican party figures that it’s future is to court liberal protestants rather than Catholic conservatives.
At least you’ll have a home!

But unfortunately they're in the majority.
Man that doesn’t make any sense.
You defend Catholic voting for Obama, because the democrat party and it’s pro-abortion and pro-homosexual agenda is better than the pro-life, pro-marriage platform of the GOP?
The republican party always wins the Protestant vote and has elements within it that think they must move left to win the Catholic vote, your devotion to and defense of the democrat vote is just amazing.
Oh, so you believed Romney when he said he was prolife and supported traditional marraige?
The north east is mostly made up of Catholic voters, they call themselves that and yet they vote Dem.
If these people in NJ, NY, PA, NH, MA, RI, etc all voted with their so called faith and preached what they call themselves then we would not have had the radical lunatic or many Dems in congress and we certainly would not have had the homosexual lobby going state to state pushing their agenda.
You think that Obama won the Catholic vote in 2008 because of Mitt Romney?
My extended family is Catholic and for generations the majority of them have voted Republican. Most of them live in the New York area. My late uncle, a Catholic, was a Republican party official on Long Island, NY many years ago.
My first cousin....she’s an elementary school teacher on Long Island, and a Catholic, told me in late October that she couldn’t wait to go the polls and vote for Romney. She said she wished she could vote for him twice. When I asked her about damage from Superstorm Sandy, she told me she would swim to the polls if she had to.
I also have relatives who have lived their entire lives in Massachusetts and they are staunch conservatives, as well as Catholic. So, there’s hope.
The Catholic vote is skewed because, unfortunately, vast numbers of Mexican and Puerto Rican Catholics vote for the dems.
The thing is that the Catholic vote has always been democrat, there are only about five exceptions in our history, Catholics immigrating from the most Catholic nations are not really changing anything, they are just keeping it normal.
He simply “filled the order” required. Doubt any thought put into it as he knows it won’t fly. But he can say he did it, and that’s about the it of it....next!
Interesting that he is willing to cut the one thing that Americans are forced to pay into and actually have skin in that game.
And that, precisely, is my thesis. Thank you. It’s not about Catholicism. It’s about race.
The last time Republicans won is when they won the Catholic vote.
Perhaps Republicans should be waking up to that fact.
You are saying that democrats do win because of the Catholic vote, and the reason the republicans won the popular vote in 2004 is because when Protestants can get 50 or 51% of the Catholics to vote pro-life conservative, then the democrats lose.
I think that is what the point is, the fact that the Catholic vote is what the democrats depend on and pin their hopes on, and they pray for more Catholics and atheists.
Can you explain your promotion of the democrat party and their agenda? Your claim is that the democrat party is naturally the home of Catholics because the republicans have the wrong politics in comparison, that their pro-abortion democrat vote is appropriate for Catholics.
