"Granted, it's just a proposal, but it's likely to receive vigorous debate on both sides as the U.S. grapples with the deficit. "
OK, folks. This is yet another repeat of a total falsehood about Social Security and our national deficit. Can anyone repeat after me?: Social Security is NOT part of our national B...more
CPI... Think about it. For current old folks and recipients of Social Security right now, this will mean a slow-down in how "fast" their benefits grow into the future. IF, for example, CPI is, say, 1% lower than the current index of inflation used to compute COLA, the current recipient will lose 1% of their benefit...more
Actually, "Someone", YOU need to do more homework before you spout-off. I apologize if I sound harsh, but what YOU said sounds just plain IGNORANT. As a Federal employee, I can promise you that I have not received either a "raise" nor even a COLA in 3 years. It's called FROZEN wages. At least YOU, apparently an SS ...more
Actually, this sounds like a fiar-enough idea indeed. Capping the IRA tax-shelter at 3,000,000 seems more than reasonable - and 3 mil is hardly within the grasp of most regular workers. So why is almost anyone screaming about this? Because Mr. Obama suggests it?
Folks like Mr. Romney, with a putative "100 mill...more
Hey! Wow! And anyone SURPRIZED that the ACA (Obamacare) will actually force the structure of the health-insurance industry?
Sorry. This one is another red-herring flap offered for you to bite on!
Remember, if you will, WHY, exactly, there ARE such things as "cheaper, no-frills, basic health-care plans" i...more
Speaking as someone with "advanced degrees" and a career as a college professor...
Seems like people are to large extent simply skipping past some thinking about jobs, wages, and college degrees (education).
1) OK. Maybe you don't yet believe that our economy is in really bad shape. I know. There's been ...more
Should fatter people pay more to fly?
By ALL means, YES! Heck, while those air-carriers are at it, they should add on increased fees for wearing clothing, clunky shoes, carry-ons, breathing, talking in-flight, bringing a Kindle or a book to read, etc. etc.!
It really does NOT MATTER whether they want to ma...more
Sorry, but the "Obamacare" approach is NOT a "good idea" for providing ANYONE "health CARE". It is GREAT at roping more folks into some health INSURANCE pools. Period.
No. I don't give a fig about Mr. Obama. But this is not a criticism "ad hominem" directed at him. This is about the so-called ACA. It does N...more
Seems that Congress has once again proven the old adage that "if you just keep saying it long enough, folks will come around to believe you."
So now Congress is trying to say de facto that Social Security IS "tied to the federal deficit, to thier settling that deficit, to their settling the federal budget into th...more
