VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
The government as a WHOLE, whether Republican or Democrat controlled, IS the money pit.
Scientists need not look any further into space for black holes, just look as far as Washington DC.
Additionally, not enough emphasis has been put on the fact that the Social Security benefits received were PAID FOR IN ADVANCE from every LEGALLY working person. Congress took (STOLE) that money from every working American to fund its pet social programs, etc. That is why Social Security is in danger.
Lastly, Rx availability: I am NOT a big fan of government regulation in a free enterprise market, BUT the drug companies are charging huge markups on drugs (1000% of cost in some cases) under the pretext that they use the $ they get for research and development, when it actually goes for marketing and lining the pockets of congress through the Rx lobby. WORST OF ALL, drug companies are not manufacturing the quantities of some very commonly prescribed drugs because they ARE NOT MONEY MAKERs for them....This is the real reason there is a shortage. (PS. UK and USA are the only large countries worldwide not to cap the profit amount that can be made on a drug.
The big problem is Uncle Sam printing paper money. They have been at it for a 100 years and it keeps going on while we go broke. Inflation is eating us bit by bit. Just look at the last 100 years.
Sugar duties just add to the problem for every person in the country.
Obamacare?? (Just wait tell the cost start rolling in for that disaster)...oh and you say Private Pensions (Is that a mis-print)??...What about the Public pensions these so called heroes (cops/fire/teachers/county/city/state/federal) have raped Ca with?? Wall STreet?? I just love how these politicians bail out Wall Street and everyone is pissed at Wall Street; not the politicians for bailing them out..LOL...I worked Wall Street and use to deal with regulators...we would laugh at how stupid these people were (Govt idiots making less than $100,000 a year trying to hang with people making 1 million a year; LOL we would talk circles around these people and they would walk away with a smile)...the regulators and regulations were there in this mess and the regulators and the Govt watched all this go on right in front of their eyes (The regulators failed and so did the politicians when they bailed Wall Street out)...now most people acting like we need more regulations. I can promise you these banks will turn around and put the cost of this crap right back on you.
Fannie mae and freddie mac is a liability to our country. Shut it off. Let sequester be affective
upon them. Let their payments and benefits be positive result oriented.
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
Funny that when this quote was brought about the poor and the homeless would come here to better there lives by working hard and being part of the big picture. Now this qoute stands for laziness , hate for people that strive for a better life , hate for people that have a better life .
But we cant blame the worthless for taking everything the government feels they are deserved. Our politicians are no better than the weak sheep that take and take and take because they can.
If you feed the rats they will never leave.
This is not a country any more it is an OBAMANATION !!!
I think all people in congress should get same health care as we the people.Dont get full retirement
if your not there 30 yrs.get social security same as we the people. Get rid of all the not necessary perks.
Get a pay raise of cost of living like we the people not vote themselves a raise. I wonder what the savings' would be ?
