The wage earner needs to make enough money to support the wage payer. What’s wrong with distributing the wealth, the middle class lives with mandatory trickle up economics but the upper class only has voluntary trickle down economics. They pay us what they want and charge us what they want. The upper class is dependent on the middle class for their wealth and expect us to continue to carry them, as they drive down our wages through increased prices, charging us more for benefits (a back door pay cut) and controlling the interest we pay on our loans.
Pro-choice is not about the right to have an abortion but about protecting our right to CHOOSE NOT to have an abortion. Don’t let our government turn into another China, where you don’t have the right to choose not to have an abortion.
Our constitution states keep church and state separate. Since marriage is a religious issue no governing entity in this country should be defining marriage. Same-sex marriage is constitutionally protected. We need to protect our rights from dictator-like minds and governing enties. Otherwise we make a mockery of what our soldiers have fought and died for in the Middle East and other places.
Do not cut social security and medicare. SSD is separate from FIT. We pay separately for SSD and Medicare through Paycheck Deductions just for these 2 programs. These are not an entitlement but an insurance type program that deducts our premiums from our paychecks. We pay for this and have earned our benefits. This money is not for use to run the Federal Government. No other insurance company would be allowed to do this to its clients. The funds for income tax to run the Federal Government are a separate deduction.
The threat by some House Republicans that if they didn’t get want they would shutdown the gov’t sounded a lot like a tantrum and probably were meant to terrorize us into accepting what they were/are willing to give us. We are but serfs in their eyes and should be grateful to the lords, ladies, kings and queens that are gracious enough to let us have any scraps. Anything more is an entitlement.
Health insurance premiums are driven by the cost of healthcare . The actual cost of healthcare , ie the amount charged to patients and insurance companies, need to be addressed first. Then we need to address the for profit status of hospitals and providers so that the patient not stockholders come first.
See a great ex. of trickledown econ.Give big biz more money & tax breaks & they keep it for themselves @JudyWoodruff http://ow.ly/65Ob0. This article from Newshour talks about how little of what we, the backbone of the country, really receive from big biz. They offer incentives and rewards to management to keep our pay and benefits low so big biz can pay more to executives. They keep their mansions, cars, great education for theier children, and all the other perks while we the middle class struggle to keep our small homes. maybe 2 cars, educate our children. put balanced meals on the table, etc. Apparently Big Biz’s slice of the American dream is to small and the Middle Class slice is to big. This art. from Newshour is about how little of what we,the backbone of America,really receive from big biz.They offer incentives &rewards to mgmt. to keep our pay & benefits low so execs get paid more
