Wow. OK...Ya know...I KNOW people struggle. Believe me...I know. So...now we feed 20 million plus children year round, even when they are not in school (ignoring the fact those children's needs have ALREADY been paid for by other social service funding programs). What next? Their home life sucks. Do we take them from their homes for their own good? Do we clothe them as well? And why stop with those 20 million...lots of older folks are homeless and dont have resources...lets feed them too. And house them. And provide for their needs. Indefinitely.
THAT will sove ALL the problems.

Yay. I'm so glad we're so serious about cutting the debt and deficit with such great things like a federal employee wage freeze and trying to raise the taxes of the top 2%.
Wait? What's that you say? While simultaneously doing things to "save" money they're also pushing for billions and billions of additional spending?
My god, who EVER could've predicted that
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Many see the latter as the likely scenario which is why the price of gold continues to move up. You may support BHO and his like minded democrats because of your belief system but those who create jobs and wealth use different criteria, and that involves the real world. Giving the government whatever they ask for, with no serious questions being raised, is a form of lunacy.
we can either give tax breaks to billionaire$ or we can instead use that otherwise available revenue to provide nourishment to CHILDREN
and the reich wing - aka the republican party - makes its choice
starve the children so that billionaire$ do not have to pay a reasonable tax rate
notice further that this post reveals - however snarkily presented - how that element of the political spectrum reveals the victims - the CHILDREN - to actually be the perpetrators:notice how it is the CHILDREN'S fault that they are in need of sustenance... its the federal governments job to takle care of every poor crippled and dependent pet that they have created. ...
and the forum member would have us believe that these CHILDREN, being responsible for their plight, are not deserving of a government solution to their hunger problem
yes, thatEvil I tell you...heartless.
It's a "civilian-federal" employment pay-freeze.
All the elected and appointed individuals within branches of government are unaffected - that means congress, the judicial branch, and all their many cabinets and committee members.
So who get's a pay freeze? The little guys that run the papers around, answer phones, check badges (like those stationed on post at the gateway), and take messages.
A screaming comes across the sky.
It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow
why do you constantly spew your envy and hate of the uber rich when your masters' want to screw over everyone in the top 2%
why do you think someone making 250K a year or a retired person whose only income is now his investment income ought to face tax hikes. If you make 200K a year on dividends your tax is going to DOUBLE. but that is ok to you because you figures it will "help the poor"
as long as you dems and socialists think that the taxpayers have a duty to fund fund and fund some more every act of irresponsible breeding on the grounds not doing so will "hurt the children" the creeping crud of socialism will continue
