Is this the CHANGE you believe in? Would you call this a Redistribution Victory for Obama?

PRIVATE PAY PLUMMETS, GOVT HANDOUTS SOAR

Paychecks from private business shrank to their smallest share of personal income in U.S. history during the first quarter of this year, a USA TODAY analysis of government data finds.
At the same time, government-provided benefits — from Social Security, unemployment insurance, food stamps and other programs — rose to a record high during the first three months of 2010.

  • I LOVE Obama!!!!! He's the BEST THING that's happened to our country in a long time!!!!! Things are changing now for the better!!

    Would you prefer a republican in office who spends THOUSANDS in BONDAGE THEMED strip clubs like MANY REPUBLICANS DO???

    Yeah that's money well spent within your party!!!!

    If you ignore it long enough and keep pointing fingers at Obama like you are you think it'll draw attention away from your own parties MAJOR flaws!!!!!

    I really hope that's somebody being sarcastic, because if that's a sincere reply, somebody needs to spend a nice relaxing year in a padded room.

  • The trend is not sustainable, says University of Michigan economist Donald Grimes. Reason: The federal government depends on private wages to generate income taxes to pay for its ever-more-expensive programs. Government-generated income is taxed at lower rates or not at all, he says. "This is really important," Grimes says

  • I guess since all those social programs have been in existence for decades...Social Security, Medicare,etc. ....does that mean the "redistribution plan" has always existed? Was Obama President back then when they were created? No. Of course i am being sarcastic ...because people love to blame him for everything and it is ridiculous. Give it a rest!!! Some day you and your family,parents,etc. will be so thankful for Social Security, all the programs that you seem to dislike so much. Eventually, wages wil increase. Unemployment will go down,people will be hired....therefore,more taxes will be collected to sustain the programs.

    One~ that isn't 'my' party. Two, that was their OWN money~ not taxpayer money. So, ohh wise anon do YOU even know what you are talking about? That entire ordeal about the bondage club? FACT: A young Republican donor group called the Young Eagles organized a fundraiser. After the event, a group that included RNC staffers went Voyeur... FACT: When the credit card of Young Eagles director Allison Meyers was declined, a California donor named Erik Brown offered his cc. He, LATER, filed to be reimbursed by the RNC. The Daily Caller spotted the reimbursement in the committee's monthly FEC report. FACT:Meyers was fired from the RNC. 


    How does the RNC use of Private CC's impact the NATIONS lacking revenue and increasing handouts?

    I do not blame him for the Icelandic volcano, the death of the dinosaurs or Twilight. I do, however, blame him for his personal f'd up economic policy as set forth by his administration on his orders, up to and including, massive spending bills that cannot be implemented without his willing signature. If you want to run around blaming Bush/GOP for extra crap, go right ahead - blame them for The Real Housewives having careers, but I'm sticking in the real world, where Obama is to blame for the things he personally did.
