Last I checked there is not 310 million millionaires in this country.
    Although I think you make an EXCELLENT POINT, I thin your math is a little bit off? nonetheless, I also believe they are DEFINETELY funneling money somewhere.

    I think you are using the same calculators that the Heritage Foundation bought when they projected in 2001 that the Bush tax cuts would not only pay off the national debt (not deficit, but debt) in 10 years and leave $1.5T in the bank.... the biggest projection bust in the history of mankind....

    http://www.heritage.org/research/rep...ax-relief-plan

    Your's is a close second (no, actually you win the championship... but you a rank amateur and Heritage Foundation are supposedly professionals)...

    $1,000,000 per year for 5 years to 310,000,000 people is more like $1.6Q (that is quadrillion, which is a 1,000 trillion)

    $3.7 Trillion is over 310,000,000 for 5 years is $2,500 per taxpayer per year.


    More interesting is the estimated cost of the Iraq, Afghanistan wars is about the same $3.7T..... at least with welfare we are helping our citizens and keeping the money local (in our economy) and not killing anyone.

    Really, which one is more of an outrage?

    From what I've read, he's currently unavailable. Being part of the contents of several dogs' stomachs will have that effect! Yuck! Ewwwwww!

    Greetings, shrubnose.

    Yep, according to some unconfirmed reports he may have been involved in a dogs eat men execution incident in North Korea.
    I'm waiting for confirmation on this story.

    Kind of hard to believe right now.

    No because we dont spend that much.

    That is why you cant even wipe your *** with SNAP, muchless get a home, or bus pass.

    Now how about we look at that MIC? What his it done for USA since 1945?
