But since you want to make this about SS, why would you support cutting payroll taxes which fund Social Security. Isn't it in big enough trouble now? Oh, well, what are a few more trillion in IOU's?

    You're criticisms lend credibility to Conservatives views. Instead of your words aren't meant to aspire or improve Conservatives views but are instead meant to manipulate and are purely said out of self-interest and ego. Obama has spent some money, has backed QE1 and QE2, has injected billions into the country with little to show as far as positive economic outlook. Saying that is dishonest is in fact, dishonest.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

And the person committing the scheme knows for the begining that there is no possible way for your money to make money.

    As for Obama, another issue (squirrel), Obama like too many bow to political pressures. He seeks compromise. But at least it is a targeted compromise, in which something has to be done to earn the cut.
    Boo, keep believing that and keep supporting the empty suit. Putting your money into a fund and having it used for something other than the original intent and then having someone else fund your SS when you retire is a Ponzi scheme which LBJ made legal in the 60's with the help of a Democrat Congress.

    Doesn't annoy me at all, just goes to show how partisan and brainwashed you really are. You have your job, the hell with the 25 million who are unemployed and under employed. In addition the 16.7% unemployed African Americans have plenty of time to protest and campaign for the re-election of this incompetent President showing another group of brainwashed.

    Man, you are unbelievable, maybe Goldenboy can explain it to you because obviously you don't have a clue. Too bad you couldn't put the amount you put into SS into a bank and see what you would have when you retire and it would be all yours and your family's instead of the Government's should something happen to you. Have you checked out the return on your investment from SS? Doubt it because brainwashed people never do any research.

    No, again, I direct you to the definition of a Ponzi scheme. You simply can't make words mean what you want them to mean. They actually have meanings.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Where do you get the idea that tax cuts reduce purchasing power?

    And how many of them did it from scratch relying upon nothing from previous programs?
    It's not how many did, but could they? I a government agency has invented electricity, the airplane or the automobile I'm sure they would be held up as examples today also

    Care to tell me what firm in the 50s had a couple billions dollars in 1950s money to spend on something that could not commercialize for possibly decades?
    The point is, even if there was, they wouldn't have been able to. There was quite a squabble over AC or DC power. Much was invested in both. For the DC arguement it was wasted.

    I can use the very same arguement...... Would we have went to the moon without the Wright Brothers? Would we have won WWII without Ford and GM?

    If this is true, why didn't your hero, Ronald Reagan, fix it in 1983.
