Sarcastic is my prefered adjective. Ignoring that and using snarky instead is a microaggression.I realize you're being a bit snarky, but be sure to read the subsequent post and don't misinterpret a link to the WSJ as me advocating laissez-faire.
I think this is where most reasonable people fall; the differences lie in the definition of "minimal." I'll take net neutrality as an example, since Trump's team has foolishly indicated a desire to reverse course on this.I [am] pragmatic enough to understand that minimal regulations are needed to help prevent fraud and the like.
He certainly isn't sitting home waiting for others to provide for him.Ha ha...woof!
I'm just enjoying reading the rebuttal posts to Charmin's OP.
In reality....nothing to defend....Trump is backing up his campaign platform, regardless of those picking nits..
The guy's a workaholic....I hope he stays healthy is all I can say!
Paul Ryan has wanted to gut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid for a very long time. He was never coy about this. And now he probably can.I noticed another story that I admittedly did not read, speaking of things that are shameful in government. Said that Social Security benefits were going to be slashed. I saved it to read later really hoping that was just hyperbole. Taking people's money that they paid in their entire working life infuriates me to no end.
They either have to cut benefits, raise revenues or both. They need to decide and act soon. And smoke and mirrors like trickle-down will not help.Paul Ryan has wanted to gut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid for a very long time. He was never coy about this. And now he probably can.
Undoubtedly. But the plan just presented cuts pretty much every benefit. And by continuing to exempt capital gains and dividends from providing funds to SS, it transfers the majority of the cost to normal Americans who gain most of their income through payroll, and away from the very wealthy. Not that this should surprise anyone.They either have to cut benefits, raise revenues or both. They need to decide and act soon. And smoke and mirrors like trickle-down will not help.
