From: Senate Democrats Raise Lending Fees In Silly 2-Month Payroll Tax Cut Bill

The increasingly vitriolic debate over whether or not to extend a payroll tax cut and jobless benefits for two months has dominated the news recently, but no one seems to be factoring in that the $33 billion-cost for the bill will actually be footed by United States homeowners, who are already struggling to make mortgage payments. While the Senate, the House of Representatives and the president lob accusations and demands back and forth across the aisle and across the capitol, there is little acknowledgement that even the unpopular two-month cut, which is nothing more than a stop-gap measure and, many argue, un-implementable anyway, is going to literally cost taxpayers an arm and a leg.

I just saw a protestor screamjng, “Hands off my Medicare1”. OK I quess we can chalk that up to failures in our education system. At least FDR hid the Social Security Fraud as a type of insurance product in which your “contribution” was used to fund your retirement. Until they had to tell the truth and admit before the Supreme Court that it was just another tax (Heverling v. Davis 1937) and did not convey rights to the taxpayer.

Medicare was never sold to the public that way. It was promoted as our obligation to the elderly and funded by a payroll tax. Thus it became a direct transfer from the working to the retired. I would suggest that Medicare taxes should be sequestered in a separate fund that funds only Medicare . If it runs low, adjust benefits or tax level. It will be highly inteesting to see how much the children of the “Baby Boomer” will be willing to pay for their parents.

Hey maybe we can get a bunch of illegal aliens paying into the system to balance it oyt. /sarc

I saw this on Hot Air:

Underpants Gnomes debt plan:
Phase 1: Defeat Boehner;
Phase 2: ???;
Phase 3: Cut, Cap, Balance!

What they seem to be advocating seems to be:

Establishmentarian Gnomes debt plan:
Phase 1: Surrender;
Phase 2: ???;
Phase 3: Victory!

I’ve been mentored by high school and colege athletic coaches (multiple sports), Vietnam era Drill Sergeants (they deserve capitalization), Special Forces Officers (them,too) and have even been a TAC NCO at Officer Candidate School and I can assure you that victory is not a result of surrender!

FIGHT YOU BASTARDS! Or we’ll find someone who will! In the streets, if necessary. The Estaplishmentarian Rethuglicans don’t have enough guts in their entire caucus to field a Lingerie Football Team! Actually probably not a grade school chess team, the ladies of the LFL seem to be quite a bit more aggressive and gutsy. Maybe Patton could slap some courage into these sniveling cowards! Were they ever weaned, I wonder?

With the economy sliding deeper into a recession, panelists discuss whether it’s time to stop throwing our money into a massive pit out in the desert.

It would actually help if they did burn it instead of burning through it.. Not to worry, though. The Fed can create much more with just a few keystrokes. And of course the Treasury’s printing presses are running overtime. With enough inflation our debt will disappear, just ask Zimbabwe. They replaced the Rhodesian Dollar (which had a 1:1 exchange rate with US dollars in the mid ’70s, I know, I was there) on a one to one basis in 1980. When they finally got out of the money printing business they were printing Z$100 Trillion bills. On 8 November 2008 one of those bills was “officially” worth $147.50. Note that our debt is all in US dollars, does that give you any ideas? Can we /should we inflate our way out of debt? By the way, now in Zimbabwe they use a “basket of currencies” (sound familiar?) that includes the US dollar, South African Rand, Botswana Pula and the Pound Sterling. I wonder what our “basket” will consist of?

From CNBC:

New claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week, bouncing back above the key 400,000 level, while core producer prices clumbed (sic) faster than expected in March, government reports showed on Thursday.

He nailed it. The only thing better might have been to end the analysis by quoting Macbeth, “…it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
