Here is all you need to read to know how disingenuous this so-called journalist is:
"Republicans want to slash funds for Medicare, benefits for the elderly, and Medicaid, a health program for people with low income, but Democrats would prefer to make up much of the deficit by raising taxes on the wealthy."
Really? Is that what the Republicans are proposing? Medicare "cuts". Only D.C. politicians and the minions in the MSM can get away with such blatant lies... There are no "cuts" proposed for people on medicare/medicaid. They are simply lowering the rate of growth and changes qualifications to means test it, so people like me will not be able to access the "free healthcare" after paying in all these years. You know what? I don't care because the country cannot afford it!!!!
And Democrats only raise taxes on the "wealthy". Really? That is unless you eat, drink, smoke, use electricity, gasoline, or have a cell phone, credit cards, a bank account or home mortgage. Then your taxes, either directly or indirectly are going up as well.
What about this do people not understand. We spend $10,000,000,000 a DAY. $4,000,000,000 of that is borrowed! Most of that is borrowed from other countries. Are people really so stupid, as to believe we can continue this absurd behavior?
