Margaret Carlson, Michael Medved, Mark Feldstein and Howard Kurtz reflect on the divided reaction to the Supreme Court's healthcare ruling
Obviously, you don't understand my aremugnts because what you just posted does not come close to representing me. The reason WHY I dispise Social Security is because people who make more than $100,000 per year do not pay their fair share. The tax caps at somewhere around $110,000. That means a person who makes $5 million a year pays in the exact same amount as someone who makes $100,000, and we wonder why the system is financially unsustainable. Can you get your thick head around this concept? It is a liberal argument, and I guess I always thought your were a liberal. If social security were truly a social program (read, welfare), I would support it.Unemployment is a similar concept. The national cap on unemployment taxes is a wage of $7,000 a year. That means that the people who make, say, $100,000 a year do not have any more money going into the system than someone who makes, say, $20,000 a year, but yet they receive a disproportionate advantage when it comes to receiving benefits. This is absurd. This is, again, a liberal argument against a status quo that is unprecedented in any industry in America. When it comes to insurance, you get benefits based on the premium you pay. When it comes to American socialism, the lower class has to bear the burden of taxation. Again, if this was a true social program, I wouldn't be so much against it.Your accusation of my support of trickle-down economics (more aptly named supply-side economics) is absurd. I have openly advocated here in support of tax cuts for the lower class and huge tax increases for the upper class. Even my aremugnts against Social Security and unemployment fully support this. It's not my fault your reading comprehension sucks. I'm in support of paying bonuses to people who deserve them, and I'm in support of honoring contractual obligations. Finally, there is no hard science behind your ascertation linking global warming with mankind. I am a liberal when it comes to environmentalism, and the largest harm to my cause are radicals like you who tarnish the reputation of all environmentalists.
