    I have many reasons why I don’t like the Republican’s budget. I’m on medicare and don’t like their voucher system. They did nothing to cut the military, they would expand it. They also play the same spending game of “reducing spending increases,” not actually reducing government spending.

    Unfortunately the Democrats come along with tax increases and do nothing to restrict spending, to the contrary, they expand it. So once more, it’s politics as usual; Frick and Frack trying to convince us their way is the best way.

    Is there someone who takes Ryan’s budget seriously?

    Wow Robby Rogers is the biggest liar on gocomics.
    Winning with 51% of the vote as the incumbent is a trouncing? Ha
    Most people DO NOT support Obama-care.

    Most Americans think taxes are high enough or too high already. Fact.
    So that’s lie, lie and then another lie.

    Good job Radical Robbie.

    Over $6 trillion in new debt in the last 4 years, more than what was accumulated in the first 224 years of the country. At almost zero interest rates, the interest on the debt amounts to about 25% of the countries real income. Wait until interest rates increase and it takes 50% of the income.

    The Federal Government has already spent $30.5 billion MORE this year than at this time last year. The house of cards will fall no matter what.

    How can anyone really want “Obamacare?” Nobody has read it yet, so nobody knows what’s in it, as Queen Pelosi once commented. The masses who support Obama are being spoon fed what they think they want. Careful… there’s an awful aftertaste coming!

    You are right! Count me as one of those who do not want Obamacare. I want universal healthcare for the benefit of my children and grandchildren. Why should they overpay for lesser outcomes as we do today?

    This is the best “Tell it like it is comic” today.
    Although Mike Smith on anoter site has a good one, too.

    Ryan’s “new” budget assumes at least two things that are not true now. He uses figures from last summer.
    He assumed that no taxes would be raised, when taxes on the 1% went up 3 point something percent..
    He assumed that the sequester would not happen, and it did.
    For someone who is supposed to be good at math he is really bad at math. Also bad at disguising his hatred of Medicare, Madicaid, and Social Security, which I paid into for 35 years and I want to keep.

    You are wrong.

    You are wrong.

    Obama is willing to negotiate anything & everything, including entitlements. Most Republicans want entitlements turned into vouchers that will hurt people who rely on Social Security & Medicare. In the meantime, they are unwilling to budge on revenue despite the fact that revenue is at a 50 year low as a portion of GDP.

    As I’ve said before, the GOP is not serious about deficit reduction.

    The “awful aftertaste” is already here—Medicare.

    And if you have ever had a loved one or known a loved one die on Medicare, then you know what comes afterwards—the “Medicare Lien” on any assets that the loved one died with and if they weren’t given away or put in trust so that the families could get what is rightfully and customarily theirs by inheritance while the loved one was still alive and in control of their own affairs, the government will seize whatever they think could be liquidated into cash to satisfy whatever it cost Medicare had to provide for that loved one.

    And it gets worse whenever a loved one dies without a will that anybody would recognize as being valid, binding and legal, because it is all too easy for a third party out there to put the loved one’s Estate into Probate and then use the mechanisms set forth in a state’s Probate Laws to work on denying the surviving family any stake in their loved one’s Estate no matter what their relationship.

    And even the state attorney general’s office, on behalf of the state’s Medicare program, will also use these instruments to go after the surviving family members for the costs of their loved one’s care up until the point they died, which may mean that the family may wind up with nothing after Medicare Lien is settled in the way of monies, stocks, assets or real estate.

    Eventually what this will mean is that wealth will wind up in the hands of relatively few people—the ones that did not go on Medicare, while the majority of those people out there who used Medicare, especially for their entire treatment and care until the end of their life, will wind up having their Estates liquidated by the government to offset whatever costs the deceased had using Medicare.

    And right now it is too easy to use Medicare to pay for the present costs of a loved one’s medical care and even nursing home care toward the end of their life, but their families need to know what comes after that loved one dies and that they may be fighting the state for their inheritance of the loved one’s Estate and perhaps put the fortunes of that family in jeopardy in the process.

    Be careful what one wishes for from government, because the words of Thomas Jefferson ring true here—“A Government big enough to give the people what they want is also big enough to take it away.”

    Great great cartoon. So much for all the cant about how the elephants have realized that there are more voters than those in their white, elderly male base.
