Obama is so friggin awesome!

Obama stuck to his guns! This man is a frigginPITBULL NINJA!!! The wealthy finally begin to pay their fair share. I was so worried that I was going to lose my federal unemployment extension, but it looks as though I'll be getting a lease on life. Wondering who else will be benifiting from the federal extensions?

For some reason, this seems so appropriate.

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt.''
People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance."
- Cicero , 55 BC

So, evidently we've learned nothing in the past 2,067 years.

why start now, huh, Mark? At least people like myself will benifit, even if it is at the expense of the extreme wealthy.

I'm not rich by any means and my paycheck was about $70 less Friday, thanks to the Social Security withholding increase. Oh, that's right, unemployment is funded by social security taxes, so I am helping pay you.

Like I said earlier.... The repubs don't want no poor folk in their little country club. Apparently, businesses are doing fine...... Employment keeps going up and up.......... I know, it's only by about 150,000 a month, but it's still in positive territory. Obama care will do fine and so will business in the country, after all, more and more companies are coming back to America from China.

But what if it was you on unemployment and I was working. I'd have a big smile on my face and besides that, if your check was 70 bucks less based on the small increase they just voted in, then you can afford it. Lastly, thank you for helping out those Americans such as I, whom are out of work on account of the Winter months in oiur industry. Thank you.

Someone please do the math and show us how taxing the rich can get us out of debt and keep up all the freebies!

It's very very very simple actually........ Cut our elected officials wages and benifits to start with. If Lee Iacoca could bail out Chrysler for a salary of a mere one dollar bill, then our leaders, if they care for our country, should do the same. After all, they can afford it. Next, things like the farm bill need to be axed. Straight up. From there, the military drains this country plenty. We can afford to cut the military budget in half for a couple years. Do these few things, and I guarantee you that you'll have plenty of money to support our poor folks, rebuilding our roads and highways, electrical grids etc.

I have a simpler solution. Get rid of the freeloaders who are leaching from society and solve our economic problems.
