GOP planning 1 trillion slash to Medicaid and Medicare
Budget Battle to Be Followed by an Even Bigger Fight
Boehner wants to pass spending cuts with GOP alone
GOP 2012 budget to make $4 trillion-plus in cuts All on the backs of the poor and needy!
This is scary because of America's Impending Master Class Dictatorship
Frightening but you can not deny this reality! We are in serious trouble and as I have pointed out for years it was done on purpose and right under our unsuspecting noses! Our real debt including Debt and unfunded liabilities is $120 trillion! Wrap your mind around that!
They always go after the poor and the needy and our so called unfunded liabilities. The Political Wisdom on Social Security is Bunk
The "Unfunded Liabilities" Ruse: Under Bush the mainstream media had been parroting claims that the federal government, particularly the Social Security and Medicare programs, have dozens of trillions of dollars in "unfunded liabilities." For example, USA Today ran a long feature in early October 2004 that proclaimed that "the long-term economic health of the United States is threatened by $53 trillion in government debts and liabilities that start to come due in four years." Many other articles, news reports, and commentary have included comparable numbers that make the fiscal future look not just frightening but entirely unmanageable. Just put Bush's trillions in there and have a real hemorrhage.
These claims appear aimed at scaring us into making radical changes in our social insurance system for old people. But whatever the motivation, how scared should we be? What is true and what is phony about the alarms that fiscal disaster is looming just ahead? Unfunded Liabilities Ruse Social Security crisis heralded by Republicans for political gain, is it a crisis or a ruse? Imagine if we privatized it when he wanted to?
It is a frightening thought, discontinuing social security or even cutting social security, Medicaid, and Medicare. It is all millions have. I remember Romney when stumping for McCain saying it should be discontinued and the countries big enemy was the Democrats and their effort to take care of the elderly and the needy. Bush spent years cutting "unfunded liabilities" and trying to wipe out President Roosevelt's legacy. If the Republican's get back in they will do just that.Social Security turned 75, but will it see 75 more? Not if the Republicans have anything to say about it!
All Democrats and all independents better make sure they come out in 2012 to get President Obama reelected, our future depends on it. If Republicans get back it the White House they are going to finish off average Americans and Bush's mis-agenda of destruction.
