The Recession Has Damaged Social Security

It's time to tax all income.

There is a very easy fix for this problem. Tax all income not just the first $100,000.00. The Social Security tax is a regressive tax and needs to be fixed.

When They Show You Who They Are Believe Them

These are the teabaggers.

Who will be responsible when one of these ill informed knuckle draggers kills a member of Congress or blows up a Federal Building? These people have been incited by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. Limbaugh should be doing time for his illegal drug purchases and Beck is certifiable but these are the spokespeople for the far right lunatics. The Republican spin machine has been in overdrive since the election of President Obama knowing full well that there are just enough racist morons who could be told any lie and made to believe it.

These people have increased the threat of domestic terrorism and have soured the political discourse. They have no shame and will probably have no remorse when this dangerous rhetoric spills over into violence.

Immediate Benefits of this Historic Health Care Reform Legislation

Below are the immediate benefits of this new Health Care Legislation. How could anyone in their right mind find these benefits anything but good for the average American? Finally fear lost to common sense.

* Prohibit pre-existing condition exclusions for children in all new plans;

* Provide immediate access to insurance for uninsured Americans who are uninsured because of a pre-existing condition through a temporary high-risk pool;

* Prohibit dropping people from coverage when they get sick in all individual plans;

* Lower seniors' prescription drug prices by beginning to close the donut hole;

* Offer tax credits to small businesses to purchase coverage;

* Eliminate lifetime limits and restrictive annual limits on benefits in all plans;

* Require plans to cover an enrollee's dependent children until age 26;

* Require new plans to cover preventive services and immunizations without cost-sharing;

* Ensure consumers have access to an effective internal and external appeals process to appeal new insurance plan decisions;

* Require premium rebates to enrollees from insurers with high administrative expenditures and require public disclosure of the percent of premiums applied to overhead costs.

Health Care Passes

Finally after a year of constant bullshit this historic piece of legislation has passed. This is the most significant social legislation in four decades. Maybe finally we will see the end of the Health Insurance Industry and their blood sucking ways.

The roll call is here.

Teabaggers = Stupid Bigots

Lets not fool ourselves. The teabagger movement is nothing more than the KKK without the hoods. Honest policy disagreements are one thing but if you watched the last video it was clear they didn't even know what was in the health care bill so hearing they are calling Black Congressmen "Niggers" and Barney Frank a "Faggot" was no surprise. This is not about policy its about race, hatred and bigotry. Lets hope there are more like Congressman Ryan who call these bigoted fools out for what they are doing. I actually have a better idea. Lets let them opt out of health care reform and stay with the status quo. They are too stupid to realize that most of them are fat and that is a pre-existing condition.
