Did you know about this Republican Plan?

Libs always have said the Republicans don't have a plan and are for more of the same. Of course they just never listen to Republican ideas. Check out Paul Ryans Budget committees ideas for getting America back on track. From Education to Healthcare to Social Security and more. This is a great website with loads of information if you look around.

Psssst...... Libs, don't look. We don't want you taking any of our ideas. LOL

  • If Ryan wants to do away with Social Security,I don't like him. I worked for over thirty years and paid a huge chunk to Social Security over that period of time and I don't want him to take it away. That would be just as bad as having an employer take awsy your 401K. Right?
    But...just to be fair,I will read what Ryan has to say.....

    These were the SS estimates in '01--before Bush's tax cuts were implemented and the Democratic Congress' spending sprees!  Just wait until inflation and taxes skyrocket!



    And somehow things are going to magically get better?  With an estimated 45% of the US population being over the age of 50 by 2015, and about 30% MORE collecting Social Security benefits, I don't see how the system is going to improve.

  • And as for Obama wanting to strip you of YOUR ability to manage your own 401k plan....apparently the government thinks it can do it better! Yeah, right!


    http://www.thenewamerican.com/index.php/usnews/politics/3478-obama-administration-plans-to-seize-401k-retirement-accounts


    "accounts would be "free of inflation and market risk" because they would be under the direct and absolute control of the federal bureaucracy. There would be no risk because the funds would no longer be moored to the free market and subject to the fluctuations thereof. Rather, the retirement funds of every hard-working American dependent on a 401(k) for their retirement security would be nationalized and made subject to the whims and will of the executive branch."

  • It amazazes me that there are still people out there who think they will be getting Social Security when they need it. Did you not hear that our government did not lock this money away like they said they would when SS was implemented but has been spending it for years and now has no money to pay anyone. Sorry, but I will do everything I can to make sure my tax money isn't going to your SS.

    Why the divisive crap? You're part of the problem, not the solution.
