    I look forward to a birther candidate like Trump being the GOP pick to run against Obama. Go Trump!

    We're gonna have to open cut-rate nursing homes in China. We'll call it "retirement tourism".
    No, the ponzi scheme was the Bush tax cuts.... the government decided to "cover-up" the falling income tax revenues with increasing payroll tax revenues (social security) to say "look, tax cuts work".....

    So, anyone that wants to tell me that the social security debt can not be paid back CANNOT tell us that 47% people pay no federal income tax, because all wage earners paid FICA and under this Republican scheme of use it as tax receipts and not honor social security obligations, it has made the payroll tax nothing but a very regressive income tax.
