Now wait just a dog gone minute. Those old white men PAID INTO Social Security all their lives. Plus, the Veterans Benefits they receive are compensation for the work they did in the armed forces. It's the same as your retirement benefits from your job. These are not government handouts for sitting on your assets.
Almost everyone involved in anything to do with the Federal Government agrees there is massive government waste. Some studies show up to 30% is wasted. How about going after those billions before you come to me demanding even more taxes! DO YOUR JOB!!!
I am an old white man but I am not angry....I am blessed with children and grandchildren! I pay taxes although I retired 24 years ago!! Hard work and knowing the difference between "needs" and "wants" is the key!!
What this country needs are leaders like Teddy Roosevelt (carry a big stick & tread softly) & Harry Truman (The buck stops here) instead of pols who are only interested in getting re-elected.
If you think the President should control the economy, you don't believe in less government or capitalism.
The president does not own the economy! Capitalism is a free market!
In your "America has spoken" claim, did you by any chance notice that the popular vote was pretty much even? Therefore, only half of America has spoken for Obama who will move forward with his warped agenda.
All of you criticizing the wealthy, who might understandably put their capital elsewhere, would do exactly the same thing if you could. Your sanctimonious carping is useless.
Does democracy work or what? However, we will now have to deal with the extremists driven to dangerous extremism.
Dear neighbor: Refusing to remove your signs and adding even more to your yard ain't going to get your boys into the White House. It's childish.
$2 Mil in taxes is little or great depending on how much was made.
No, no majority party should obstruct, but if the Republicans do it, the Democrats at least will recognize it as something they have done and would do if they could.
I can't wait for the day the government takes our whole paycheck and then doles out what it thinks we deserve and what is "fair".
No matter how much time passes after the Bush presidency disaster, it will always be the republicans fault until they step up to help Democrats clean up this mess and quit obstructing!
