23. That


was a different Congress. Most of the Blue Dogs are gone. What are you going to cut in Social Security when people pay into it? The same with Medicare? I can see you cutting waste but people pay into both systems. If you want to talk about food stamps, I can see going after the waste and tightening up on fraud but those programs are needed in able to combat poverty and hunger. we are talking about Health issues si I don't want to hear about that Bull.

The more you create jobs, then you will get people off Government dependency, and that is where the so called job creators have a major fail. That is why more of those programs are needed. I'll tell you where you can look for more waste. Look the the military Industrial complex and where a lot of contractors have gotten wealthy. And why are we providing for everybody's' national defense? I do not want to go around the World trying to fight everybody's Wars. You can save a lot of money there.

There is this notion, this great Debt came about by increasing Entitlements, which people paid for. I beg to differ. Most of this Debt came about because of bad Decisions by the Politicians that now want the middle class and Poor to help pay for. The Two unpaid for Wars and the huge tax cuts and tax credits given to the wealthy and corporations. When Clinton left office, there was a surplus after making these same cuts. Now what has happened to get it out of control? And while the Bush Administration was doing all these things, people gave them warning.

Now I think they should bare the brunt of the Bill. neglecting the Poor and Middle class will not help. Once they get all these revenues, what will those in power do with it? Pay for more Wars? If this country is in for a population increase, there is going to be more Demand. Therefore, you are going to need more jobs. And the notion that Baby Boomers are somehow immortals are ludicrous at best, which is voodoo math. There is no science that backs up any current numbers. They are only theories based on fix numbers that are current. And what is more, Debt can always be forgiven. The U.S. still have debts, they never paid off.Some with interest too.
