    well, given that the average effective tax rate is around 11%, you must be in the sweet spot. what are you pulling in?

    I think it is time they call it what it is. It is a tax. The money leaves my pocket so the government can spend it on what they want. If they spend it on SS checks for the elderly and disabled, great. I have no realistic hope of seeing SS. Plan for your future, that is the best you can do. Don't rely on the government to take care of you.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    I agree, I could even accept a gov disability insurance program.
    But paying people when they reach X age is dumb, we're paying them to not be productive.

    Not to mention that it's inherently gender and racially discriminatory.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    truth. SS is one of the many ways in which the Boomer Generation is going to screw over younger workers.

    Apparently you support a President how into his fourth year of his Administration has a net job loss, net employment loss, net unemployment losses, declining labor force, higher misery index, and did all this at a cost of 4.6 trillion added to the debt. Those are the numbers trumped by the fact that the month to month private sector job growth is an improvement. Doesn't looke likt you have a clue WTF you are talking about or who you are supporting. You buy what obama says and ignores what he has done.

    Didn't expect you or the other liberal sharks here to get it, you apparently never will understand the failures of liberalism nor personal responsibilities. At least you apparently read it, now let it sink in and get back to me.

    Glad to see your 1-2-3 punch of non-responsiveness, insults and obfuscation (though you were more responsive this time than most). You can keep buying your Fox News rhetoric of lies and half truths...and continue posting 28,000 more posts that say nothing and show no original thought. We get it; when will you?
    i am not surprised to see that a net job loss, net employment loss, net labor force loss, net unemployment gains, a rising misery index all at a cost of 4.6 trillion added to the debt is a success to you. I get it, rhetoric trumps substance in your world.

    Class warfare and envy is all you have. You don't hear me complaining about how much you have, wonder why? I don't give a damn, why do you care how much the top 1% makes? Do you know what they do with their money, how much they give to charity, how much they pay in local and state taxes, how much they give to their church? No, of course not, you don't care because you don't know what you are talking about. That defines liberalism to a tee.

    Not a different question at all, where does the money come from to fund those IOU's?

    Re: State of the Union Address

    In a nutshell, I like these:

    "1. Removing tax deductions for shipping jobs overseas and providing new incentives for bringing them back home;

    2. Targeting the domestic production incentive on manufacturers who create jobs here at home and doubling the deduction for advanced manufacturing;

    3. Introducing a new Manufacturing Communities Tax Credit to encourage investments in communities affected by job loss;

    4. Providing temporary tax credits to drive nearly $20 billion in domestic clean energy manufacturing;

    5. Reauthorizing 100% expensing of investment in plants and equipment;

    6. Closing a loophole that allows companies to shift profits overseas."
