Fund raiser for a job, John Boehner is attacking Social Security, a program that keeps seniors alive.
Senate Betrayal Imminent! You must call your Senators now!!! (202) 224-3121 Don't Be Fooled By The Media Narrative. In the coming days you'll hear the professional pundits, the politicians and the media advance a disgusting and deceptive narrative. They'll tell you that blocking the funding that will allow Barack Obama to issue work permits, Social Security and Medicare to 5 million illegal aliens will also jeopardize DHS's ability to combat terrorism at home and abroad. They'll tell you that Republican inflexibility puts Americans in imminent danger, and it is probably not a coincidence that the lame-stream media has been pumping up the coverage of terrorist activities in recent days. But what no one in the media is telling you is that John Boehner, when he initially betrayed the American people by funding Obama's illegal decree, funded DHS through February 27, 2015. And that means that there is no rush to capitulate to Barack Obama and Senate Democrats because DHS is fully funded for at least six weeks. ...
Pages 958 and 959 of the 1,603-page omnibus spending bill from House Speaker John Boehner include a provision that gives Social Security benefits to illegal aliens under President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty. Boehner’s gall is incredible as he...
SOUND LIKE ANY Tea Party GOVERNOR WE KNOW? *The Koch Brothers are uber-wealthy billionaires who want to repeal the Affordable Care Act(Obamacare), dismantle unions, repeal environmental protection laws, stop people from voting, privatize Social Security, prevent any increase to the minimum wage -- the list goes on and on. *Senator McConnell and Speaker Boehner are working very *** the Koch Brothers' agenda. As you can very well see they are no longer working for the American Families. Mitch Mcconnell and John Boehner have sold out to the Koch Brothers.

Not even Mel Brooks could write this stuff. The latest sideshow in the default/debt ceiling showdown is a letter from 51 House Republicans to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) declaring Social Security to be back on the chopping block. The news comes as a slap...
Keep thinking they have your best interest at heart. Republicans: While we're at it, let's just throw Social Security into the ransom note Republicans seem intent on alienating the last group of voters that is hanging with them: old white people. First consider Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) adding Medicare to their shutdown and debt ceiling ransom note. Then add to that the demand of 50 House Republicans in a letter written by Rep. Reid Ribble (R-WI) that House Speaker John Boehner include slashing Social Security in the hostage taking. They seem to think that making Social Security cuts will allay the fears that they are creating by flirting with default. "Fixing [their word] Social Security," Ribble writes on behalf of the 50, "would send a strong message to financial markets that we are willing to responsibly address our nation's long-term fiscal issues." Yes, that will distract the financial markets from impending doom. Here are some of their demands for Social Security benefit cuts: Cutting Social Security ...
Erskine Bowles has returned to run the same play he ran during the Clinton administration, when he negotiated the secret deal between Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich to cut Social Security benefits. Despite warnings from both John Boehner and John Conyers that the commission will report its recommendations to a lame duck Congress who could pass it before the end of the term. Both Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have promised to bring the commission’s proposals up for votes.
Organizing for Action John Boehner knows better than this. All the talk of shutting down the government over Obamacare? He knows it's reckless, he knows it won't work, and -- worse -- he knows it's not what the American people want. He's been around the block -- he even helped shut down the government once before in his 25 years in the House. (That was an epic failure.) He knows what a shutdown would mean for our economy -- it would keep hundreds of thousands of people from going to work, not to mention potential disruptions to Social Security, student loans, veterans benefits, small business loans, and hundreds of other programs. Right now, he's toying around with letting another shutdown happen -- and the only explanation is that he thinks he can get away with it. Add your name, and tell John Boehner you've had enough of these political games. What's embarrassing for John Boehner is that he has the power to prevent us from heading down the path to shutdown -- and yet he can't stand up to the most extrem ...
Here's a FACT CHECK to John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch Mcconnell and all the other Republicans who say that those of us who are on Social Security and Medicare are draining the U.S. budget.The U.S. Government DOES NOT fund Social Security or Medicare. From the time each one of us got our first pay check we have been paying into these systems. They were set up as a type of "savings account" for our future. This is OUR money , NOT the government's. In fact the U.S. Government OWES money to Social Security for money they borrowed in the 60's and 70's. Considering that these politicians make over $200,000 a year, have the best health insurance available (for life) and more perks than they will admit to, and a VERY generous retirement income.they have a lot of nerve to even suggest that Seniors and disabled who are on Social Security are harming our country. When are they going to stop LYING?
Speaker Boehner Should Be Charge With Treason Speaker John Boehner should be arrested for Treason against the United States. He has sworn an oath to defend the Constitution of The United States, in reality he has done the complete opposite. Ever since he has been the Speaker the credit rating of the United States has been lowered, the economy in near collapse and struggling to recover. His efforts to negotiate with President Obama can only be described as worthless. He has not made an honest effort to serve All the people, just a few of his friends.Now with another deadline passed it is painfully obvious to anyone one that John Boehner serves John Boehner and what is good for him. He would like to see the United States default on it's debt, would like to see thousands lose their jobs(except his). Millions on Social Security to lose their ability to pay their bill, but life will go on for John Boehner, he will be able to pay his bills and buy food, but he could care less about the millions who are sufferin ...
This is very well written and makes so much sense. This is another reason that politicians should be limited to 2 terms and then have to go back to the private sector and their old jobs if they are still there. They should have to go on the Social Security system for their pensions then you would see the kind of decisions that would be made to benefit the SS system. Neither party is blameless especially when they have been in Congress for ever. Don't they realize that they are the ones that have created all the problems we have? Folks, Please read this letter from a citizen of Newtown, CT, where the tragic school shooting occurred in December, 2012: Thanks, _ To the Editor: This letter was forwarded to Barack Obama, John Boehner, Chris Murphy, *** Blumenthal, Elizabeth Esty, and Harry Reid. I live in Sandy Hook, CT. My family and close friends weren't harmed on December 14. That day impacted 26 families with an indescribable, staggering pain and anguish. For most of Sandy Hook, it merely affected us with ...
Here's an excerpt from Tim Geithner's letter to John Boehner today: In an address to the nation in 1987, President Reagan said, “Unfortunately, Congress consistently brings us to the edge of default before facing its responsibility. This brinkmanship threatens the holders of government bonds and those who rely on Social Security and veterans benefits. Interest rates would skyrocket. Instability would occur in financial markets and the federal deficit would soar. The United States has a special responsibility to itself and the world to meet its obligations. It means we have a well-earned reputation for reliability and credibility – two things that set us apart in much of the world.” I agree. Congress, do your job.
Republicans in the House are preparing to hold our economy hostage to gut the critical benefits on which our seniors depend. Just as they did in the summer of 2011, Republican members of Congress are poised to refuse to raise our nation's debt ceiling -- a routine move that allows the Treasury Department to pay the obligations Congress has already made. But here's the rub: Republicans want to use the debt ceiling to extort damaging Social Security and Medicare benefit cuts, even if it means undermining our still-fragile economic recovery and jeopardizing the full faith and credit the United States of America has built for hundreds of years. We can't let House Republicans threatening that kind of disaster take away more Americans' earned benefits. We must stop them -- before it's too late. Tell House Republican leaders John Boehner and Eric Cantor not to take our economy hostage with a damaging debt ceiling fight. Sign our petition today. America cannot allow corporate-funded political extremists to hold o ...
From Hank in NYC: Subject: To The Editor“Fury in G.O.P……….” – Front Page – January 3, 2013 The Republican party is disintegrating before our eyes. The ultra right wing, or Tea Party element of the G.O.P. has made it virtually impossible for John Boehner, or any Speaker for that matter to control their caucus. The failure to even bring the Hurricane Sandy relief bill to the floor however, is inexcusable, and permanently etches Mr. Boehner’s record into history as the weakest, least compassionate Speaker in the last 50 years. The G.O.P. acts as though we did not have an election in November, and, like they don’t give a whit about the wishes of their constituents, especially those in dire need due to a horrific act of God. It is truly shameful that Mr. Boehner and his caucus want to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, and don’t have the decency or compassion for the hundreds of thousands of their fellow Americans left in Sandy’s wake. It is a good thing that President Obama did ...
In Boehnerville, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security get cut while the rich get tax breaks. Sound effects courtesy of: tictacshutup, rein samba, mookie18...
(Sherry) Idk... maybe it's just me... but has anyone noticed since more polls have begun to indicate a growing percentage of Americans blame republicans for being unwilling to do anything for anyone OTHER THAN the wealthiest Americans and corporations that the media isn't trying as hard to prop up their B.S.? Like maybe they want their finger prints OFF of this train wreck?? From the awesome article which has GREAT video: *Things have gotten so bad for John Boehner, even CNN is fact-checking him* [John Boehner gave a press conference today that was so full of crap that even the ever clueless CNN was forced to fact check and call out his latest fiscal cliff BS. Here is the video of Boehner: Washington Has a Spending Problem YouTube (click link below) Boehner armed with a shiny new chart, put together by no-numbers guy Paul Ryan, tried to fool America into not raising taxes on the wealthy while gutting Social Security and Medicare. The Speaker said, “Unfortunately, the White House is so unserious about cu ...
As America approaches the "fiscal cliff" the President needs to remain strong. He has a natural inclination to negotiate and that's ok. Within limits. That's why his initial proposal seemed unreasonable to Republicans. It leaves him plenty of room to negotiate. This is a moment in history in which John Boehner and the President have the opportunity, and yes, the responsibility, to not just bandage the problems we face but to fix the problems. Whatever the solution, it must be a long term fix. Republicans must agree not to hold the country hostage in the future as they did last year on raising the debt limit. Spending cuts must include deep military cuts. Long term fixes to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security can include such items as agressive pursuit of those who cheat the system, focusing on quality of care rather than quantity (only necessary tests and treatments), means testing for Medicare and Social Security, and removing the $110,000 limit on income subject to social security taxes. O ...
Don't let John Boehner and what's left of the Tea Party cut Social Security and Medicare. Stand Strong. Add your name here:
Deficit Commission Ryan accused Obama of doing “exactly nothing” about recommendations from a bipartisan presidential commission to reduce the deficit. But Ryan himself was among a minority of commission members whose opposition scuttled the plan and prevented it from being sent automatically to Congress for action. The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform’s report proposed deep spending cuts in both domestic and military spending, and an overhaul of the tax code that would have lowered rates but raised revenues — all in an attempt to slow the growth of government by $4 trillion over 10 years. Many Republicans, including Ryan, opposed the military cuts and new tax revenue, while many Democrats opposed changes to Social Security that included raising the full retirement age. The 18-member commission needed a super majority of 14 votes in order to bring the report to a vote in Congress. But it received the support of just 11 members. Seven members, including Ryan, opposed it, thus ...
Re-elect Obama! Here’s my reasoning, feel free to debate me on anyone of my points. 1. Obama didn’t cause the recession, and nether did Bush entirely. It was a combination of people financing everything they owned and never planning on or having no way to pay off their debt, 2 wars that the Bush administration decided to pay off over the next 30 years, and the fact that when Eisenhower and LBJ set up Social Security and Medicare people didn’t live to be 80-90. 2. The reason that nothing has got done over the past 2 years, is because of the endless filibusters, the Republican heads of both the House (John Boehner) and the Senate (Mitch Mcconnell) have said that their goal was not to repair the economy or get Americans back to work it was to make sure Obama did not get a second term and the fact 95% republican will not raise taxes, because of a treasonous scumbag named Grover Noquist, so the government has to run on the same amount of revenue that we were taking in 2004, So any bill that might raise ...
New AP poll out says 53% of Americans would rather raise taxes rather than cut benefits for the future of Social Security; only 36% said they'd rather cut benefits. So, what should this tell John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and Grover Norquist? (Vote Democrat November 6th)
The Speaker of the House is the third in the line of succession (ie if both POTUS and VPOTUS are unable to be in command). It's a fairly important position, so you would expect that regardless of political points of view the Speaker would raise above child level when he discusses policy in his full capacity as Speaker. But our Speaker, John Boehner, declares formally, surrounded by his fellow US representatives, that the Health Care law is equivalent to forcing everybody to eat broccoli on Tuesdays. We've got to the point that one has to resort to really nerd logic to debate. Imagine a state where people had to eat broccoli or face a penalty. Imagine our fellow citizens having to eat or pretend to eat broccoli on Tuesday. Just try to picture the regulatory and enforcement idiocy. No; pressing people to have Health Care (like we press them to deposit wages for their own Social Security) is nowhere equivalent to forced broccoli on Tuesdays. Not by a factor of ten, not by a factor of a million. So ...
Speaker of the House, John Boehner, and House Republicans have made it clear of their intent to, once again, hold our country hostage, with future debt ceiling deals. The last time they did this, in August 2011, it resulted in the downgrade of the credit rating, and huge losses in the stock market. When George W. Bush was in office, Congress raised the debt ceiling 7 times. There was never a stipulation that required cuts in exchange for them. However, Congress wants to make severe cuts to programs that help the elderly and the poor in exchange for raising the debt ceiling, and want to eliminate"food stamps and the "meals on wheels" programs .This would devastate millions of Senior Citizens and low income individuals, who depend on these programs to put food on the table. Congress also wants to make cuts to Social Security and Medicare, entitlements that have been paid for out of every paycheck by American citizens throughout their work history. While Congress sets their sights on hurting the elderly and ...
Peter G. Peterson wants your Social Security money Thom plus logo Meet Wall Street billionaire - Pete Peterson - the man trying to destroy Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid as we know it. According to tax documents - between 2007 and 2011 - Peterson has given nearly a half-billion dollars to his Peter. G. Peterson Foundation to run ads and lobby Congress warning that federal safety net programs are going broke and need to be drastically cut or privatized. And Last Tuesday - Peterson hosted a "fiscal summit" with power plays like Bill Clinton, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Paul Ryan, and John Boehner on reducing the deficit by cutting Social Security and Medicare. Senator Bernie Sanders was also at the meeting - though he wasn't invited. He was there to protest - and we should all be doing the same to stop Pete Peterson from destroying our social safety net. -Thom
