    So two personal blogs and some equally obscure Left Wing site is a "plan to end Social Security"?

    It is being discussed, certainly, and as it should be in order the get America's fiscal house in some sort of order, but there is no serious plan. Do you really not understand the seriousness of your situation?

    You seem to have a problem answering direct questions. How about that 11.9% LA Unemployment, how much are those people paying in taxes?

    True. And everything most of this board is throwing against raising taxes is just an attempt to muddy the issues. The truth of what has happened to the wealth of this country. The wealthiest people on this board only have holdings. *they say* They don't have true wealth, i.e., intelligence, wisdom, insight, compassion, comprehension; the list goes on. But what they do have, they intend to keep. If all I had put me on the same playing field as Ebenezer Scrooge, I'd be hanging on for dear life as well.

    You don't, I live in TX. You seem to be confused over state and federal taxes and responsibility. You really should learn what your tax dollars fund and who? Obama must be proud, look at this LA Resident that bought into the Obama rhetoric of shared sacrifice and believe the people of LA with their taxes funds the services in TX. Wow, how did we get so far off track in our education system?

    The $700 was mostly from bills (ex TARP) that were passed before Obama became president. They were passed with republican votes, and signed by the republican presidunce.

    IOW, it was all Obamas' fault

    Thus the philosophies which led to this greatest debt in US history could be discussed.

    Marxism was given as one excuse and, given Obama's history, not completely without justification.

    To what political philosophy do you attribute his fiscal madness?
    We will also discuss the economic policies of the right, which got us into this mess. Don't like it?

    Too bad

    Um, you do both, if you know anything about business.

    Those who don't want to give you their money to spend on yourself are Scrooges?

    Why not have a temper tantrum, or hold your breath until you turn blue?

    That should balance the budget.

    If you ever have one that is.

    There's no way the rightwingers are going to not raise the debt ceiling. It would cost their corporate masters too much. They have given their GOP stooges their orders, and they will comply. And once they do, the rightwing dupes will flood DP with reasons for why they were right to raise the debt ceiling
