N Y Post can’t stand fact that worker earned a big pension while pub’s boss is worth $15,700,000,000

Retired NYC sanitation worker makes $285K a year from pension That New York Post headline made many folks angry. Do garbage collectors get pensions worth more than they deserve? Are evil unions behind this? Or dopey Dems? Or a PC still running only DOS? To illustrate their point, the newspaper published a photo, sort of artsy-fartsy, of a trash truck. That’s to show those readers, who live in gated communities, […]

There’s little love in Paris this Springtime, as French President uses executive power to crush labor rights

Best of times for very rich; worst for the working class! France’s President Francois Hollande has learned many lessons on how to offer false promises from America’s President Barack Obama, who campaigned in 2008 with the following plans: convince the working class you stand for better wages and stronger unions say you will reduce  job competition by ending reckless import of foreign labor suggest you will renegotiate current income-lowering trade […]

Will politicians steal Social Security’s $2.7 trillion?

Social Security is not in “trouble”, except that it has vast wealth in reserves, and politicians want to steal this treasure trove (designed only to insure future Social Security benefits), and use it for something else. That something would probably be tax cuts for the rich by the GOP, or more redistribution downward from the middle class to the poor by the Democrats. When I combine Treasury Note rates, Cost […]

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), House Ways and Means Committee Chairman, pontificated about plans to cut Social Security on Thursday, last week, at the Urban-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center, Washington, DC.  Brady wants to cut Social Security by not only raising the retirement age to 70, but also imposing means testing to cut benefits.

Does Heritage Foundation want Communist plan for Social Security? GOP candidates should denounce!

The Heritage Foundation is the think tank for so-called conservative Republicans, who offer flat tax plans, skeleton government goals and the destruction of Social Security as we know it today. The current Social Security program is regressive, and pays a lower percentage in retirement pension, the more you contribute. A retiree, who has paid in the maximum amount (on wages less than about $118,000 in current dollars), will contribute three […]

“Fair Tax” by GOP would be fairy tale windfall for the rich

Leave it to the greedy politicians and their wealthy puppet masters to come up with yet another “reform” that will benefit the upper class at the expense of the other 99%. This time it’s called the “Fair Tax”, and it’s made of fairy dust for the entitled. Every GOP candidate for President appears to have been told this is the official goal for the year. It’s now a mainstay for […]

Social Security benefits keep dropping…

While there has been much discussion about the AMT (Alternative Minimum Tax) and revising it upward so it affects fewer people, Social Security benefits have not received the same attention. The SSA website notes: Beginning in 1984, includes up to one-half of Social Security benefits as taxable income for taxpayers whose adjusted gross income, combined with half their benefits and any tax-exempt interest they may have exceeds $25,000 for a […]

White House and New Democrat Coalition – cut Medicare to subsidize world’s worst health plan

The new insanity is that instead of passing healthcare for all at no cost – the world standard – nitwits in Congress and the White House have decided to rape Medicare. One of the targets is home health care. The cuts are major and since the people involved are housebound, there is no danger of them storming the gated communities in rage. They will just die from neglect. Here’s a […]
