People on welfare don't consume very much. If wages were high enough to provide the ability to support oneself and a family then welfare would not be very attractive. When wages are so low that the...

The fallacy of that article is the belief that recession means recovery just because that's the way it was in the past. The irony is that Obama is at fault for the lack of recovery even though Bush...

It strikes me that a reporter who insists that he asks the questions in a room full of reporters is out of line. And that's about all the support for Trump you'll hear from me.

Just shows how little you understand that the govt is subsidizing pension investments. Govt charity is not a free market.

If Libertarians got what they ask for their pension investments would be decimated. The stock market would look like a train wreck.

Wrong! You are paying back debt to the SS trust fund. It's govt debt, not a govt charity.
