President Obama on the Sequester

The people voted into office those morons who currently hold the majority power in the House of Representatives.  They are responsible for this horrible mess, not the president.  Only they can fix it, not the president.  The Republican majority in our Congress said loudly and clearly, "We care only about our rich friends and to hell with the rest of you!  Our main objective for the past four years has been to bring down the president even if we have to destroy out country to do it!"

Ronald Reagan on Social Security and the Budget

This is what Reagan said: “Social Security, let’s lay it to rest once and for all…Social Security has nothing to do with the deficit. Social Security is totally funded by the payroll tax levied on employer and employee. If you reduce the outgo of Social Security, that money would not go into the general fund or reduce the deficit. It would go into the Social Security Trust Fund. So Social Security has nothing to do with balancing a budget or raising or lowering the deficit.”
