    Social Security Online - HISTORY: Vote tallies on 1935 law

    You right wing extremists rant and rail about Social Security and the New Deal. As I have said, it was enacted by both a majority of the members from BOTH parties and that includes Republicans.

    House vote 4/19/35 on passage of the Social Security Act

    Dems 284 - 15
    Rep 81 - 15 (thats over 80% of republican members voting FOR it.

    If that is not enough humble pie for you and Turtle to dine on jointly

    Senate vote on Social Security Act

    Dems 60 yes 1 no 8 not voting
    REP 16 yes - 5 no - 4 not voting (thats 2 of every 3 GOP Senators voting FOR Social Security passage

    Many on the left figure the country can't run out of money if it still has ink and paper.

    Getting people to realize their economic interests lay in starvin big government is the key.

    You got any clue who's going to be hurt most when the Depression Obama and the Democrats are trying to engineer happens? That's right, it won't be the rich people, it'll be middle class and the poor.

    Already people are feeling the pinch because thirty consecutive years of government idiocy has prevented exploring and exploiting domestic oil reserves, and now gasoline is headed towards six dollars a gallon. That's going to do wonders for the phantasmal recovery. Also food inflation is becoming impossible to deny. That's going to go over well with people trying to feed their families and pay the taxes the Democrats demand.

    Wanna bet the government will once again refuse to ease the tax burden on gas in the US?

    Yes, a hole in the head is necessary if the head is going to contain a brain.

    I do not expect you to recognize facts and historical research. I know it must be like reading Mandarin to you.

    It shows that a majority of BOTH parties voted to start the jewel of the New Deal programs that you rail against.

    Do you also need the annual budget votes in which the revenues from your hated Progressive Income Tax were continued and spent year after year and in budget after budget?

    Or are you one of those guys who thinks lowering taxes always increases revenue?
    Because the wealthy use their money to expand business and create jobs, and the poor use their ill gotten gains to stay away from work.

    Hence, cutting taxes on the people who pay the taxes (who the hell else deserves tax cuts, hmmmm?) grow teh economy, and cutting the funding for indolence encourages people to get off their lazy asses and go to work.

    And, do you feel, (note the Mayor did not use the word "think") that the partisan lineup of a vote to implement an unconstitutional action eight decades in the past should matter when the issues facing us today are the damages caused by the perpetuation of those illegal programs into the future?

    Re: House passes huge GOP budget cuts

    And as to the other main enemy of the current right wing - The Progressive Income tax that turtle and others keeps insisting is the demon child of Democrats...

    from the article on Wikipedia

    An income tax amendment to the Constitution was first proposed by Senator Norris Brown of Nebraska. He submitted two proposals, Senate Resolutions Nos. 25 and 39. The amendment proposal finally accepted was Senate Joint Resolution No. 40, introduced by Senator Nelson W. Aldrich of Rhode Island, the Senate majority leader and Finance Committee Chairman.[21]
    Both Norris Brown and Nelson Aldrich were REPUBLICANS.
