    [QUOTE=The Prof;1059416461]ah, so breaking trillion dollar promises made over generations is fine tuning?

    well, then, fine tune away

    No - just the opposite. The point is to KEEP the promises made to generations.

    The Hill is the baby of Dick Morris and opinions never substitute for facts.

    Dick Morris - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    More recently, Morris has emerged as a harsh critic of the Clintons and has written several books that criticize them, including Rewriting History, a rebuttal to Senator Hillary Clinton's Living History. Morris said that he would leave the United States if Hillary Clinton were elected president in 2008.[5]

    Morris was the strategist for Republican Christy Mihos' failed campaign in the 2010 Massachusetts gubernatorial race.[6]

    While promoting his new book on a radio show hosted by Peter Schiff, Dick Morris stated that the War on Drugs was not being won because "we're not fighting it", and advocated drug testing every high school student in America.[7]

    . . .

    Since leaving the Clintons' employ in 1996, Morris has said he has become profoundly "disillusioned" with the actions of the Clintons in the late 1990s. He has now formed a career as a political commentator and critic of the Clintons (particularly towards Hillary), appearing on Fox News programs such as Hannity & Colmes, Hannity, and the O'Reilly Factor, and on various local and nationally syndicated radio talk shows. Morris is also a regular columnist and Pundits Blogger for The Hill, a nonpartisan daily newspaper based in Washington, D.C., and for NewsMax.com, a conservative online news website.[19][20][21]

    No I don't.

    It is not about individuals and their own personal gain. It is about all American workers being protected in their golden years. That is a nationwide societal benefit that makes America a great nation.

    I'da sk for sources, but you have none. You are a product of feeding off the lies the rich pay people to put out there.

    You have no discussion tools and your lack of knowledge comes from your lack of a knowledge base of information.

    No offense, pal, but I would rather spend my time talking with someone who at least knew where to find the truth. Educating the uneducable right is not my job. As an American citizen, it's your job to tell the truth from propaganda

    Re: House passes huge GOP budget cuts

    oh, hey Haymarket, how ya doing? didn't see you in this thread

    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.
