    It was indeed. Which makes voters's remorse all that much more serious for republicans in 2012.

    How about a true news source? Without an agenda?
    LOL!

    the trustees have no agenda?

    It makes for much better discussions when you read articles that report facts.

    Because this is NOT about you as an individual. It is about a societal program for America and Americans. 93% of American workers pay FICA tax on 100% of their earnings. All workers should.

    News Headlines
    President Bush And The National Debt - CBS News

    Six and a half years later, the Bureau of Public Debt tells us the National Debt clocks in at a staggering:

    $8,835,268,597,181.95

    That's $8.8 trillion – an increase of $3.1 trillion dollars since January 20, 2001. And that amounts to a jump of 54% during Mr. Bush's watch.

    If you wanted to pay it off, dividing it equally among the U.S. population (estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau to be 302,103,675), it would come to $29,245.82 for every man, woman and child.

    Sot it's not really hard to understand why Mr. Bush almost never mentions it.

    The National Debt has gone up more on his watch than under any other president.

    That means it took the Federal Government 225 years to accrue $5.5 trillion in debt under 42 U.S. presidents. But under President Bush alone, it has soared another 35.2%.

    And the National Debt is not just a big number, it's an expensive one.

    This year alone, it costs taxpayers $247.3 billion in interest payments.

    wait, let me get this stright. the fact that a huge massive push by organized labor in one of their biggest home states costing them millions against an obscure Judge who didn't even act like he was in a race until the very end was still unable to get the support they would have needed from the American people......

    ....is good for the unions....


    Remember the Big Labor resurgence? Neither do we, but we ventured back 29 days into our archives, and there was the Washington Post's E.J. Dionne declaring on NPR that Gov. Scott Walker's success in passing legislation curtailing the power of unions was a victory for those labor monopolies: "What [Walker and the GOP] have done is they have mobilized Democrats and the labor movement--Democrats in a way President Obama wasn't able to in 2010, and the labor movement, as it's never been mobilized before."

    "Voters have sided with . . . the unions," Dionne had written five days earlier. Last week this assertion was put to a test at the ballot box, and it proved true. Voters did side with the unions. Not a majority of voters, mind you, but a big enough minority to almost oust a sitting justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court in favor of Big Labor's candidate. OK, they lost, but it isn't as if voting out a sitting Supreme Court justice is easy in Wisconsin. Had it happened, it would have been for the first time in almost 1,100 days...

    So far from being mobilized "as it's never been mobilized before," Big Labor is "deeply troubled"--and also, according to Politico, "raw," "bitter" and "disappointed." Why?

    Perhaps their political power is fading because increasingly their adversaries are not Big Business but taxpayers. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, a majority of labor union members work for the government... Supporters of labor monopolies have attempted to elide the distinction between government and private-sector employees, in the hope of inspiring the latter's "solidarity" with the former. But the decades-long decline of private-sector unions means that only a tiny minority of nongovernment workers are part of Big Labor. The labor monopolies may feel they "must still try to maintain a relationship with the Democratic Party," but the Democratic Party also has to maintain a relationship with those of us who pay the bills.

    More and more people are finding it sickening that the republican party gives welfare checks to the rich and does so by cutting back on educating our youth to compete in a global market, taking health care away from poor women, the disabled and seniors, and stop health care to all people.

    Most Americans must have recently found Christ, as they turned their backs on the republican made born again evangelicals who worship the rich.
    Here in Michigan Gov. Snyder's rating have plummeted as soon as he announced his budget shifting the tax burden from businesses to seniors and pensioners. If the election were held today, one survey indicates that the Dem he beat by nearly 20 points just last November would bet him. It took the previous governor seven years to hit such low ratings.
