Post Election, “Your Fair Share” Will Take On a Whole New Meaning!


We know Medicare and Social Security taxes pay in less than the programs pay out, so we know both are funded now on borrowed/printed money. We know ObamaCare adds some 19 to 34 million previously uninsured  new patients.  And we’re told by the Congressional budget folks that the ObamaCare being added lacks sufficient funding. I believe everybody who knows we’re already spending annual trillion-dollar deficits can do the math. The most important issue in this seems to me, the horrifying silence about it from both our allegedly presidential candidates. And perhaps more destructive if such can be, the media covers for them.

Campaign posters for Barak Obama and Mitt Romney should in honesty (were such available) be set up, like those posters you see of top predators underlined with the caption: “TRUST ME!”  With the lighting catching gleams off their incisors…

A report today lighted both candidates’ incisors for any of us who haven’t been paying enough attention: Medicaid plus Medicare Patients Outnumber Private Sector Workers. You note this has occurred before the extra ObamaCare patients are added. Rubbing your nose into this in case you’re asleep, there are too many collecting and too few paying! How many folks’ medical bills can you pay in addition to your own? So it’s a scam, no matter whom we elect. And neither of them can keep it going.

Oh, I forgot: If you have a job, while you’re telling me how many other folks’ health care you’re ready to pay for, please add in how many retirees’ pensions you can afford to add to that. Social Security is in roughly similar shape, with baby boomers retiring and nobody having kids to go to work to pay for those boomers. And of course, a lot of current young folk unemployed. so, you’re elected to pay…

That’s “Your fair share!” Isn’t it?

    Enjoy your articles. Most require contemplation…sometimes even thought. Besides borrowing from China, can’t we pay with Pay Pal? 🙂

      Thanks! China’s not so anxious to lend to feckless, free spenders any more, from what I hear…\ And “Helicopter” Ben Bernanke at Pay Pal already has his faucet full on, but his product just floats on top of the septic pool of debt, seems to me, and soaks it up and becomes part of it about as fast as Benjy pumps it out.

        China lent, I guess with interest , so we could buy cheaply. So we pay. Will til bankruptcy of nations is declared. Is that the plan? Credit on top of and in conjunction to war? Thats what Mahmoud Ahmadinejad figures, and he not such a good CPA, but his Mullah told him. They do know how to destroy.

      • jackcurtis says:

        Yeah, the ayatollahs are destroying first, Iran seems to me. As we’re destroying what we’ve had and the Romans destroyed what they built. A historically popular pastime!

    You’re no where near Nashville, TN are you? Have son there with Crowe Horwath. Ever heard of them?

  3. I’ve only read a couple of your posts, but I don’t see much “not Christian” about them. You seem to be a fairly objective writer, frankly. I don’t see any of the “crucify Obama” talk within them. You also seem to be very well informed, Jack. Thanks for the peek into your pov. 😉

    • jackcurtis says:

      Thanks; I take that kindly…and I’m more unchurched than unbelieving. Not into crucifying anybody; it’s unproductive. I think it’s nice when we can lay out all the facts and try to build on them. Almost the opposite of politics, right?
      Please visit if inclined and leave us your own pov, can’t be any worse than mine! And who knows, I might be capable of learning something…
