GOP: Cut Medicare to fund tax cuts for the rich

July 11, 2011 at 9:58 pm 1 comment

How in the world can anyone suggest that we cut taxes on the richest 2% of Americans and we fund it by cutting Medicare and Social Security?  How do you even look at yourself in the mirror – that’s horrible.  We’re not talking about raising taxes, we’re talking about letting the cuts expire. 

If Jesus was in Congress, would he vote for tax cuts for the rich – or resources for the elderly?  The Tea Party needs to stop espousing a Christian outlook, its sacrilege.  It’s a group of short-sighted narrow-minded hypocrites (who apparently don’t plan on aging). 

And Boehner and your Republican cohorts, you don’t fix the mess by screwing the old people.  No, your companions should not have reduced regulation on America’s financial system – it had catastrophic effects.  No, you should not have bogged us down in a pointless war in Iraq where there was no Al-Qaeda and no WMD’s.  But you can’t fix your mess by stealing from the working class of America. 

And I sure as hell didn’t donate to a bunch of health-care reform causes so that Democrats could give away the health-care I will desperately need when I’m in retirement.  Give up Medicare – are you out of your mind?  I could stomach cuts in every other department.  When you cut benefits from old people, old people need to just go out and get a good paying job with benefits.  Oh…a 72-year-old typically can’t get a well-paying job with benefits?  (Morons).  It’s hard enough for a 62-year-old to hang on to his job.  After accruing raises and vacations, companies can’t wait to lay them off at the first downturn. And try to find a job when you’re 60.  It can be done, but the odds are really against you.  And to immediately affect the annual budget, you have to start making cuts right away.  It doesn’t help to say “In 20 years, we will change Medicare ages/rates”.  So if you’re 45 or 50, you should get in your time machine and go back and start handling your retirement fund differently.

Stop sending missiles and jets into Libya. Stop fighting in Iraq.  A BlackHawk gets about 0.7 MPG and they’re used all over the place.  Park the tanks, they get about 0.6 MPG.  Armored transports and jets ain’t cheap and neither are the armaments.  My god, the annual cost of air conditioning for US war soldiers is larger than NASA’s budget!  Let’s put the cost of war in perspective. 

And for god’s sake quit doing missions in Libya!  Are you out of your mind, Obama?  Send them a note that says “You should have done this 10 years ago.”
