Jackson Lee: ‘Who Wants to
Make a Fuss About Social
Security When It´s Solvent?´

Cybercast News Service, by Elizabeth Harrington

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 1:21:00 PM

Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D.-Texas) said last week that Republicans are being "frivolous" when they talking about reforming Social Security as a means toward fixing the federal government´s fiscal problems because Social Security is "solvent." According to Social Security´s trustees, the program has operated in the red each of the last two years. “Who wants to make a fuss about Social Security when it´s solvent?” she asked on Friday. “And then who wants to make a fuss about Medicare when it´s solvent until 2024?” In remarks on the House floor, the Texas Democrat said Republicans have a “frivolous perspective”

This delusional lying moron is the perfect example of why we are in the fix we are in.

Being a liberal and a Democrat I guess allows you to be stupoid beyond the understanding of the human race.

SS has been paying out more than the tax has been taking in for at least one year. It is one more part of the deficit. Adding to the debt. Like the Postal service, and Medicare, and everything else the feds try to run.

#7, blacks don´t hold the francise when it comes to fools. Typically the number of fools in a specific group is roughly proportional to the percentage size of that group. If you would like to see a fine example of a fool in an other than black group, I suggest you look in the mirror. Racist remarks have no place in this forum.

Don´t worry...Obama wants to extend the "Taxcuts" for working Americans which will help "Save" Social Security....you know the 2.9% reduction in SS "contributions/Tax" which actual funds it. "By spending more while receiving less this program will then be as successful as our plans for American Business Growth"

The real irony in Sheila Jackson Lee´s remarks is that black men are cheated the most on social security.
black men are more likely to be single, so if they die before retirement age, they lose everything.
Compounding that is the fact that black male life expectancy is substantially less than that of whites, so even if they live to collect social security, they will not collect for nearly as many years as whites.
I would think that an african american congresswoman, who represents a majority minority congressional district, would ponder that irony.

Since we are in the South and our elections are overseen by the Federal Courts, we play a game every 10 years of defining election maps. Sheila is protected by court battles lasting more that a year to play connect the minorities. The game has become more complicated because minorities are intermixed. In cities like Houston or Dallas, white voters are shunted to surrounding districts while the remainder is grouped into intertwined Hispanic or black dominated districts. It gets harder and harder and a 3rd minority (gay) might well make it impossible.

How can anyone with an IQ that cracks 2 vote for this revoltingly stupid woman? She´s a national joke. Next time she´s seen will be at the State of the Union address hanging herself over the aisle to hug jug ears as he approaches the podium—her only claim to fame is being photographed trying to grab whoever is president coming down the aisle so she can add his picture to her scrap book. Sorry, I forgot to mention another claim to fame: having government cars ordered to pick her up to drive her one block to her office— the woman is the epitomé of classless nouveau riche. She´d do better as a circus clown and doesn´t even need a costume. Being "herself" would do the trick.

Uh, guys, she´s right. There will ALWAYS be dollars going to those collecting SS.

What she doesn´t say - and clearly doesn´t understand - is that the purchasing power of the dollar will necessarily fall.

SS is as solvent as any other government program. Yet the government is broke. Do the math.

Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS.

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock.

The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links. Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen.

McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage.

Caribbean leaders meeting next week in St. Vincent are expected to study a broad legal outline for the reparations claim prepared by a British law firm. The subject of reparations has simmered in the Caribbean for many years and opinions are divided.
