Jest or not, this is exactly what is wrong with this country. People don't give a **** whether they work for their money and pay for stuff on their own or get free stuff from the government. THIS IS WHY THE GOVERNMENT IS ****ED. The country is screwed. Once people have no incentive (and the people that try get ****ed), the country fails. That's all there is. America is done.

Tea Partiers worried about welfare checks but not the trillions we spend on wars. So easily manipulated by the GOP machinery.

It's better to have a country than to just help the poor.

Yeah, we'd be totally screwed if we cut military spending any to help out people feed their children.

Ok we all know that if the democrats lost the bitching would be about equal , does anyone not remember pre 2009? every ****ing day bitching and moaning about Bush. The republicans who lost are annoying as hell, but don't spin it like that bro, liberals are obnoxious when they don't get what they want

Yes, the fortunate are expected to help/pay for the unfortunate. The poor like anyone else would rather be self sufficient then live off the government.

How about the fact that we actually got a look at a high 1-percenters federal income tax returns and he didn't pay the 35% top marginal tax rate or even half of that rate, which is at one of its lowest points in modern American history.

His 14% federal income tax rate doesn't exactly jive with the narrative that "job creators are being strangled to death under Obama." I wonder how often that was brought up on the Hannity show?

People are too enamored with the dichotomy of overspending or cutting spending, and how a shift in that metric produces a direct positive or negative correlation. We could actually cut overall military spending and actually strengthen the military's reach, projection, and capabilities.

The massive defense spending which began under Reagan in an effort to win the Cold War was never meant to be permanent. It has come to a point of being absolutely outlandish and there is no reason for it, especially when you're likely also railing about the deficit.

This. Just raising the rates will hurt the middle and upper middle class but not the rich unless the tax code is truly reformed.
