    Please have someone explain to you how we have a 3.77 trillion dollar budget proposal from Obama without SS and Medicare? Maybe someone could teach you what a unified budget is as well and then explain to you that an IOU has to be funded by cash, cash that the govt. doesn't have and will have to print or borrow. You see, people like you ought to know better and maybe do but sure don't show it in this forum. Funny how no matter what the numbers, you and others give Obama a pass on the results generated.

    Oh dear god you don't even know what on or off budget means! If had any kahoonas you would be arguing for SS to be on budget so that it faces cuts from things like sequestration. Instead you sit here and argue for it to be off budget (when it is already ) instead of on budget. On budget fits more with your arguments and you don't even realize that

    I am not sure even God can help you as you are too far gone to understand the two parts of the unified budget and what part is subject to the sequester. The problem you have is the unified budget is what created the deficit that Clinton had every year of his term. He took money from SS/Medicare and replaced it with IOU's backed by U.S. Treasuries. You seem to believe that a U.S. Treasury Bond is an asset to the Federal Govt. when the reality is it is an obligation thus an expense. Expenses exceeded revenue during the Clinton term and thus created deficits every year.

    Waste of time, waste of time. the money was taken, spent on items other than SS/Medicare and still there wasn't enough to show a surplus. Only the public debt side showed a surplus, total unified budget had a deficit and interest expense increased.

    Even bothering with him is a waste of time

    We're 17 trillion in debt and the Left is spinning and distracting. That's all they ever do. They make these laughable claims, or blame Bush, or say we're not spending enough, meanwhile the Government is robbing us blind in collusion with Wall Street. They are gambling with our money and winning big. We're the suckers. Remember that next time one of these Obama sycophants spouts their nonsense. They are the lying lips of the corrupt people ruining this country and robbing us blind.

    Rather sad, isn't it. Too many people bought the Obama rhetoric and now ignore the Obama results. Some are good people who only think with their hearts, but others are really part of the problem and seem to have a vested interest in Obamanomics and destruction of our economic system. It has taken time but socialists disguised as liberals incrementally are destroying us from within.

    It's good practice to have some minimal standards. You might want to look at the history of the American worker. You might get a better understanding of how we got here, and what could happen if we go backwards.
    You say it is a good practice to have a minimum wage, I don't. I say it's a good idea for people to have jobs, develop skills and go as far as they can without government interference and drag. You say people have to support themselves and their families are being paid minimum wage and I say whose fault is that? I would start with the government for making it just about impossible for most under the age of 18 to get any kind of a job other than running a cash register. So gaining skills by the age of 18 has been blocked by the government. Then who is controlling education? That's right, the same stupid ass government that wants to pretend that every kid wants/needs/should be prepared to go to college. What a waste of time and taxpayer money for most kids. So what do we get? We usually get a unprepared, unskilled, unexperienced kid who has done nothing but waste time at a government school. Then the government wants to tell an employer how much he has to pay somebody that fits that mold? His proven on the job worth is zero. It will be months and months before the employer can recoup his investment and that's if'y.. If the minimum wage keeps going up, less people get hired which of course means less people can develop their skills and earn higher wages at a later date.

    We need to start opening our eyes to what's really happening. Obama is using the liberal MSM and Pop Culture to form and shape his own reality where Obama is the center of the culture. Look at what is going on in Hollywood. Movies are brainwashing technique. You go over and over and see the same movie every time. A savior and a villain. Look at the villains in movies like WH Down. Tea Partiers. Christians. White males. Obama is creating his own reality TV show. He can make up all the facts just like Goebbels did.

    look at how the "MSM" doctored audiotapes to push lies and deception. If you look at the MTV Pop Culture (low info voters/Democrat voters) Obama isn't seen as a President. He's not seen as governing. The effects of his policies aren't attributed to him because we're being manipulated. From one campaign issue to the next the left is lighting fires to get us running from one fake issue to the next. Meanwhile Obamacare = Police State. It creates a National Real Time Database. The internet is becoming a weapon and people are distracted by Trayvon Martin. Trayvon is a coordinated propaganda push to distract the country from the real danger that we're in.



    I haven't seen this story discussed much here but you all need to read this.

    Move over NSA, here comes the Obamacare Big Brother database | Rare

    Our economy is crumbling. These people posting about how great Obama's economy is are either on welfare or they get paid for the nonsense they type. Getting a job in this economy is not easy. Good jobs are evaporating fast. All this money the Fed is pumping into the economy is an illusion. When the balloon pops get ready.

    First off, if the government interfered, as we see in China, wages would be very, very low. No regulations. Everything you guys are asking for. These are people lead efforts. Efforts by citizens, workers. Not the government.

    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.
