Let me reiterate....I DO HAVE PROBLEM WITH THE RAIDING OF THE SSTF, I DO HAVE PROBLEM WITH THE GREENSPAN INCREASE THAT WAS USED FRAUDULENTLY.You don't have a problem with the govt. taking your SS/Medicare contribution, putting it on budget and spending it for everything other than SS/Medicare?Absolutely pointless boilerplate, you still can't get the point.Until you look at taxes as their intent, you will never change nor will you ever solve the problem. The govt. needs to collect taxes on what it needs, not what power they want.
A surtax was created to fund the war, you need to review that history.to fund the Vietnam WarI am not going to repeat what I said already since again it can't get through, and your corporatist perspective has distorted all of your understanding of "want" and "need". We don't need a military consuming 60% of discretionary spending, we don't need SSTF dollars funding needless wars like Iraq and AFPAK.and over time people like you have accepted the statement that all taxes are the same thus have no problem buying the Obama rhetoric which will never solve the fiscal problem we have today. Until people like you stand up and tell the govt. to spend tax money on what we need vs. what we want nothing is ever going to change. Tell the govt. to allocate the tax revenue to the areas the taxes were supposed to fund. I don't see that from you
I suggest not only that you do some research but that you also take a civics and history course for the role of the Federal Govt. is to PROVIDE for our security and provide means exactly what it states. 60% of discretionary spending amounts to 800 billoin dollars out of a 3.8 trillion dollar Federal spending spree. You better wake up.
Unions have outlived their usefulness as evidenced by the small percentage of the labor force now unionized. We have laws on the books now to protect workers many of which came from union efforts but those efforts are no longer needed as the laws protect the workers so enforce the laws.
