    Or you could just look at your savings account and then decide if 4 more years looks good.

    It’s the tea party, republicans and r/w that need to go. Especially the party of NO needs to be voted out.

    put the power back in the hands of the money handlers again and we can expect 20% unemployment and 25% interest rates to pay. The interest you earn may go up to 5 or 6%. We.ve been there as Ryan would say.

    I LOVE this toon. She has organized acts, numbers, and details on her side and he wants a CPA who can provide the “loopholes”. Since it seems neither side has the level of detail and clarity as does the woman in the toon of two common folks commenting to each other….
    It’s ok to link in some facts, even if they’re just providing loopholes, but if these two folks talk to each other the way ScottPM does it will be a divorce at best. Just something to think about. We need ideas, not abuse.
    Respectuflly,

    Peace Trolls UNITE!!

    Stop looking at that old news reel and pick up today’s paper. Unemployment is under 8% and interest rates are lower than what u mentioned.

    My Roth is finally back up after crashing due to Bush. We’re getting a loan at ridiculously low rates, but our credit rating has the bank begging to loan us MORE than we want! Too many people were driven into debt by Bush policies, but yes, some refused to take their own foot off the accelerator. The amount of “average” credit card debt is ludicrous, but the banks love it!


    All of which means we need Glass-Stiegal and some more appropriate regulations, period.

    Children typically have that response to their parents when told they can’t do something that will harm them.

    Interesting story you tell with nothing to support it. Are we to believe your fantasy?

    I do not believe anyone on the right really cares if things would inprove under r/r. They just want their guy to win. It is an ego thing.

    Shows just how out of touch you are with the right.

    There you go throwing that period word around again. It must be so hard being the only person that’s right in your little world all the time.
    .
    Bank rates are low, why? Here’s a hint, it’s not because thiings are improving.
    .
    People are in debt because of your trite excuses about bush? Wrong. Lack of self control drove people to get loans for far more than they could afford.
    .
    Regulations are not the answer, personal responsibility is.

    ^Do you EVER bother to read what folks are saying??? Irresponsible behavior WAS part of the problem, but the banks encouraged it. It was deregulation that allowed them, in fact, encouraged them, to do so.

    @morty/tyrant…“they wake up years later when their privatized Social Security has been eaten by the monster that lives under Wallstreet.” (end quote)
    -
    the proposed PLAN is not “privatization”….
    it would be a Government Retirement Plan, with the choice of the original social security where congress/presidents spend all the ssa taxes paid by all workers…..leaving a worthless piece of paper IOUs. Or the choice of government monitored investments in the private sector, with the taxpayer’s OWNERSHIP name and guarantee and the money OFF-LIMITS-TO-GOVERNMENT-SPENDING.
    -
    the markets far surpass the non-return of earnings on SPENT SSA FUNDS…..
    -
    If I were 30 years younger I would opt for the private account in the government-protected retirement plan.
