Re: “The Agenda: "Closing fund" grows under Haley; Myrtle Beach's tea party; State of the Union is tonight

Listen, dipshit. You can't continually blame Obama for wasting money while you support conservatives that have no problem spending billions blowing up brown people. The hypocrisy is astounding. And expected.

No mention of the high speed rail last night.. that's another 11 billion dollars we will never see again.

Just to clarify, I don't mean to say we should unfairly tax the rich. Just close the loopholes that allow them to pay less percentage of their income than we do. Or better yet, match our loopholes to their's giving us more spending power (disposable income) to drive the economy since it IS the middle-class that does so.

Another one to add to the list: S233 is the latest bad idea coming out of the capital. Now legislators want to tax us for using cell phones, take all those revenues and kick them over to Big Telecom to subsidize land lines. Why the reps would want to support a dying technology with higher taxes is beyond me...

Re: “The Agenda: "Closing fund" grows under Haley; Myrtle Beach's tea party; State of the Union is tonight

Judging by an interview just aired on a popular TV news outlet, the repug leadership continues to push the idea that the way to help the middle-class is to cut corporate taxes and taxes on the wealthy so more jobs can be created.
1. Jobs are ONLY created when a business person NEEDS help and not when they get tax breaks. That just makes the business person richer.
2. If the corporate tax rate is reduced, that equals less tax dollars in the system. Ergo, the shortfall must be made up by someone. Since the corporate and wealthy are paying less and the poor have nothing to contribute, who is left to make it up? The MIDDLE-CLASS, that's who!
3. This is an obvious stance by the repug leadership to keep their wealthy and corporate donors happy and the unwitting constituents in the dark by telling them that this is the way to go. All the while, the less-informed middle-class citizens are still trying to figure out why they cannot pay their bills.

Re: “The Agenda: "Closing fund" grows under Haley; Myrtle Beach's tea party; State of the Union is tonight

Maybe in tonight's state of the union, we can hear all about the fantastic high speed rail the president promised in an earlier state of the union..
oh wait ooops...

"Despite the administration spending nearly $11 BILLION .. since 2009 to develop faster passenger trains, the projects have gone mostly nowhere and the United States still lags far behind Europe and China.
“Within 25 years, our goal is to give 80 percent of Americans access to high-speed rail,” Mr. Obama said in his 2011 State of the Union address. “This could allow you to go places in half the time it takes to travel by car. For some trips, it will be faster than flying — without the pat-down.”

But as Mr. Obama’s second term nears an end, some experts say the president’s words were a fantasy."

yeah fantasy... or yet another lie and waste of our money.

And of course, if any Uber driver gets tagged for picking up riders illegally it's the Mayor's fault because he's a Reactionary asshole, right?

"The owners of Nason Medical Center will pay $1 million to settle allegations by federal prosecutors that the urgent care center chain submitted false claims to Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE..."

Fraud, wastefulness and inefficiency in private healthcare? Unpossible! But yet single payer would be an abomination because of fraud, wastefulness and inefficiency. If you think it's expensive now, wait til its free LOLZ am I right libs?!
