Default Today in History

Today on Aug 22 1996, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 was signed into law by Bill Clinton. This reduced the total number of recipents of wefare benefits 53%. As a result welfare and poverty rates declined.

Today on Aug 22 2011, new congressional estimates say the trust fund that supports Social Security disability will run out of money by 2017, leaving the program unable to pay full benefits. It also projects that by 2037, Social Security's much larger retirement fund is projected to run dry as well.

Maybe it's time we need to make another change?

I'd rather see Newt back as Speaker. Everything good out of Clinton was because of him.

No, do not change. Instead, hold a gun to the head of evil corporations and make them pay for everything.

I thought it was assumed that taxing the rich wasn't the answer. Sorry I should have made that clear.

Pusha has sand in the vag.

I saw on the news that the reason Social Security disability might run out b/c some people are trying to collect disability rather then unemployment

Default Also Today in history

20 years ago today, the state of Connecticut(Corrupticut, really) instituted a personal income tax. 2 years later, we elected a governor who ran on a "repeal the income tax" platform.

20 years on, state spending has risen 250%, and we've just been given a $2.5 Billion income tax increase on 8/1, retroactive to 1/1 - more withholding, better cash flow.

We've always called our neighbor to the north "Taxachusetts." No sense of irony around here.
