Why doesn't someone in the House introduce a bill to reinstate the payroll tax "holiday"? Lets see where everyone stands.

We AINT got enough money NOW to pay the bills stupid. Obama is PO'd because the republicans are holding him to his sequester agreement of NO NEW TAXES; Obama wants to SCREW everybody more.

I see you leftists now WANT SS to go broke! How about cutting other taxes by 2% and then cut spending by 2% more to "pay" for it?

All the payments go into the general fund anyway. That has been my point over the years when you guys claim 47 per cent pay no income tax and at the same time claim no one has a "right" to that money. You can't have it both ways. Either people have a right to that money when they retire or it is an income tax.

Break it down for me then, Pamela. Type real slow. I'm kinda dense.

The problem is that would reduce payments into a system that is already broken. Tell me how that helps...

The payroll tax goes to the social security trust fund so all this does is punt the ball. All the lost funds from social security trust fund are just going to cause the fund to go broke a little faster. Go to a flat tax and do away with this horror of a tax system and the country would be in much better financial shape.

Unemployment at six week low! Manufacturing hits one-and-a-half year high! Dollar trades at six-month-high! North Sea oil offered at three-month low! Oil rises to two month high! Treasury bond yield hits one-month low on fears over Italy! Sun rises fastest in last 23 hours and 50…ah…err…um…ahem….

OK; scratch that last one because unlike the other new highs or lows trumpeted by the press in our real-life examples, the LAST one is just SILLY.

The others are silly too, but they are more than just silly; they are deceptive. And they mean to be deceptive too.

Let’s look...
