    Romney’s “Middle Class”- those poor folks only making $500,000 a year!
    BTW, anyone else notice the eyes staring in horror from behind the curtains?

    And a lot of the middle class think they are part of the 1%ers; however, they’re just cannon fodder for the “LEGITIMATE” 1%ers.

    aaahh what is wrong. Finally figured out that you, if you make more then $34.000 a year in the USA, But you are part of the 1% of the world?

    no, the operative word here is “earn”, for the middle class and lower. “making” money is done by the mint. having money work for you, and a positive cash flow from it, is the way to create wealth. i “earn” less than 17,000USD a year. heh. does that make me the 99% (my bank balance would make you drool)?

    They’re not “eyes of horror” but eyes of anger, methinks. Especially if said owner of that house is hearing what’s going on as the doorbell is being pushed.
    .
    If I were living in such a place, I’d get a recording of a rottweiler in full “growl-snap-snarl” mode (where they sound & look like they want to tear something to pieces) and play that right after the doorbell’s rung. How many politicians would stick around after hearing that?

    Gotto give Romney credit. He could have cheaped out and bought a parrot.

    Oh no, we’ve bored poor harley again. We must be doing something wrong! I suppose it’s boring to such a brilliant mind as his because he’s seen that accusation so many times and…yaaaawwwwwnnnnn!..can’t we come up with something new like how much Obama is to be hated for his socialist/fascist Africa born anti-Americanism (because there’s a fresh idea that hasn’t been touched on yet). I’ve never seen him bored by that old chestnut. It’s only when we touch on HIS sacred cows, especially when it’s the truth!

    Same with your candidate. You guys want to make it seem that it won’t. No one wants all of Obamacare, but at least Romney and Ryan are not taking funds away to pay for other unwanted expenses.

    @Tigger

    “The CBO has already said both will be history by 2033 no matter who wins.”
    -———————————————————-
    Tigger, that actually is not what they said, and it’s disingenuous for anyone to contort their report in that manner.
    Smiley
    One can read their report here:
    CBO Brief
    .
    The first paragraph of that report states:

    The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects that, under current policies, federal outlays will significantly exceed federal revenues during the coming decade and beyond.
    .
    Did you miss the qualifier (“under current policies”)?
    Smiley
    Something has to change, but the programs don’t have to be killed.
    Removing the cap on Social Security taxes would extend the life of the program, for example.
    But I’m sure that our brilliant politicians can come up with something. Relegating the programs to “history” is not an option.
