And you are ignoring that the Reagan spending spree far outstripped revenue, nearly tripling the level of debt.Nice attempt at diversion though along with ignoring that Federal Tax INCOME TAX revenue went up during the Reagan years with those Reagan tax cuts but never let a fact get in the way of your partisan opinions.
Oh....they weren't "supposed" to go into the general fund.....well alright then! It was just a "mistake" I suppose. Regardless, they ARE, so you, personally, can give up this "50% don't pay" into the general fund. Glad we cleared that up.....AGAIN.Anyone that works is required to pay into SS and Medicare, neither of which were supposed to go into the General Fund.
Tell me about it, there is this guy I have to constantly remind......Really is hard dealing with people who don't understand taxes
We used to say that two Supposedtas and a dime would get you a cup of coffee, but that's out of date.
Now, two Supposedtas and five bucks will get you a tall latte mocha with fru fru's on top.
A "Supposedta" is about of the same value as a wuzgonna.
You know, as in "I wuzgonna do those dishes, wuzgonna give you your twenty bucks back, wuzgonna pick up that mess, etc."
Or, the president "wuzgonna" reduce the deficit.
Actually, you called it a tax, which is what it is in reality.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
I see you have forgotten what the conversation was about, it was about your continuing confusion about who is paying into the general fund. Just once I would like to see you remember that the SS Trust Fund has been and is being used to fund discretionary spending and for you to stop saying "it was never intended to". Stop lying to yourself.When Reagan left office the debt was 2.6 trillion dollars which today is 16.3 trillion. Don't think you should be talking about someone who added 1.7 trillion to the debt while ignoring someone who has added 5.6 trillion to the debt and expects to pay that down by collecting an additional 80 billion a year from those evil rich people.
