I guess I should not be to hard on Vice President Dick Cheney, After all he
practiced what he preached. I refer to his quote "Deficits do not
Wait a minute all you conservative posters. Didn't our former Vice
President who received an honorary doctorate from BYU say and I quote
"Deficits do not matter".Anyone wish to dispute that quote?
xscribe,ask BO your question about it being unpatriotic. BO's the
one who accused bush of unpatriotic debt in 2008. But since you worship BO, I
know you cannot ask BO that question.
asking hedge fund companies presidents what they think of our retirement funds
system and what we should do different is kind of asking the fox if we should
have a lock on the chicken coop and if so what kind.
ronnie, you're talking percentage rise and not actual dollars for the
national debt under Reagan. The facts obviously don't worry you. But,
blaming Reagan is a refreshing change after blaming everything on Bush. How many
presidents have we had since Reagan who have improved our debt policy?
Who's next to blame, Chester A. Arthur?
"Unpatriotic"? So, since we have had debt since basically the inception
of America, and since it has grown since basically the inception of America, at
what amount does the debt become "unpatriotic"?
I wonder how much of the article was just a sales pitch by the head of Fidelity?
He wants you to buy his company's retirement services.Old
man,your distortion of the truth has reached a new low. Reagan and Tip
O'Neal worked together to EXTEND the life of SS by a generation. So you are
blaming Tip O'Neal, too, when you say "and friends"? BO has robbed
MUCH more from the SS trust fund than reagan ever dreamed of. And don't
forget that the dems controlled both houses of congress during reagan's
years. So you HAVE to be blaming dems! WOW will wonders never cease?Ronnie,wanna bet? BO added more debt in 38 months than bush did in 96,
and multiples of the amount of debt that reagan added, and you REALLY want to
start making comparisons? You must really hate BO!
I hope you all have a child that will care for you when you get old. Your
retirement will be eaten by banks, the government and those who will and can
steal from you. We live in a nation where the elderly are treated like
fools to be taken advantage of. There is no respect for those who have
gone before. Nor is there respect for those yet to come. Get all you can
from everyone around you is the mantra of this rising nation."Eat
drink and be merry"
Adding seven trillion dollars to the deficit is a worlds record for just one
person to do in a little over four years. It's irresponsible, and
unpatriotic.Obama's budget equals $150,000 for each second in a
year. Explain how Reagan did something like this. I'll be waiting.
@worfAt least Obama will not triple the federal debt like Reagan
did. Reagan was the greatest example of borrowing money from future
one old man:Obama is not the blame for anything, is he?Going back to the Reagan years is pretty low.Hasn't Obama had
four years to fix at least some things. It's not what he says.
It's what he's done.What did he do? DO!
Social Security will be fine if first 250k of earnings is taxed. If nothing is
done the payments will have to be cut, but will still provide the majority of
retirement pay for most seniors. Change from pensions to 401K was great for big
business and bad for workers. Protect Social Security and you protect seniors
and the money they put into the economy.
Social Security WAS secure until Reagan started raiding it to cover income lost
to his tax reductions.Thank you, Ronnie and friends.
Gold failed, social security is fine.
We need Social Security reform NOW. Stop the partisan bickering and get the job
It's called family. That is the only (and best) resource we have in
