viktorkowski 2 years ago on Romney's choice of Ryan sets contours for campaign

there is a difference between "welfare" and social security and medicare. social security is held in trust and is paid into by the very people who collect it. The very reason ryan wants to get his filthy little hands on it is because he can then use that money for corporate welfare in the form of more tax breaks for those that have not earned it.

viktorkowski 2 years ago on Romney's choice of Ryan sets contours for campaign

are we back to writing like a 12 year old again? I understand that you are running from the truth, but every break down I do of his plan the outcome is not good for the working people of this country. While part of the organization I own would make hundreds of millions more from defense spending, social programs would be gutted to the core at the expense of working americans. That is why Romney is trying to distance himself from the ryan plan. I often find it odd that ryan, who went to college on the money his father paid into social security, would do away with a government program he benefited from. Of course he is blindly following the very word from a hate filled manifesto written by someone who was living off the government theirself.
proof: this is what Ryan thinks of people that have paid into social security and medicare their entire life youtube.com/watch?v=GBhdXfCdaA8&t=0s

Romney's effective tax rate under the ryan plan would be 0.82%. his plan would put the full burden of the federal government on those considered the working poor and the middle class who pay a great deal more in taxes than Romney and Ryan

bikes are considered vehicles by law and as such have the same rights to access to roadways. I just got back from Portland a few weeks back where nearly 15% of the population uses bikes as their main form of transportation. It was a beautiful sight to see.

Just to reinforce what I said yesterday, I still don't see some sinister plot. There is no substance to this carnival show.

The station is under valued. You guys are looking at what it cost while you should be looking at the overall picture. That station, with a micro budget of $165,000, is providing not only local access but great training and experience that volunteers can go on to use at paying jobs. What other training program do you see that could pull that off for such a small budget?

It was a tongue and cheek response. Tennessee has the highest sales tax in the united states with a 7% rate combined with a 2.75% local sales tax making the average about 9.75%. food is taxed at 5.5% 2/3 of all tax dollars collected come from sales tax in Tennessee as they have no income tax. Not a bad state to live in if you have a Income like mine. But I wouldn't want to be on a fixed income and live there.

as I understand it, for new state hires the total benefit package doesn't look so great. For current employees the benefit package weighed against wages is bad enough that many are jumping ship. But you would be happy to know missouri doesn't have a 10% sales tax like tennessee does.
