millions of Americans are afraid of the truth. They want someone to
tell them everything is going to be okay. They want to believe the same
liars and thieves they keep reelecting who are responsible for the
financial mess we're drowning in will somehow come up with the magic
bullet that has eluded those same incumbents for decades. Reelect me -
I'll save social security and Medicare!
are scared because they have allowed themselves to be put in the
position of raw fear their social security check won't come in the mail
first of the month. That Ponzi scheme was doomed from the start.
Contrary to the endless repetition of the big lie about trust funds and
lock boxes: Social security is a tax that goes into the general fund of
the U.S. Treasury and is not ear marked for any specific spending
purpose. That trust fund is nothing but computer files backed by a
debauched currency. As the dollar continues to lose its purchasing
power, that SS check will also continue to lose its value no matter how
many COLAs poltroons in the Outlaw Congress throw your way. Scraps from
the king's table to appease the peasants.
this column is about Medicare, people should understand the history
behind the social security taxing scheme. It made me gag when I began
researching; Steward Machine Co. Collector - 301
U.S. 548 (1937). Indeed there
were people in the big cities
starving because of the "Great" Depression - a
depression engineered by various foreign interests and the banking
cartels. The path taken by
the Outlaw Congress since the impostor president usurped the office is
nearly identical to what happened back then with "solutions" that
turned into more disaster:
Great Myths of the Great Depression
is NO law which requires anyone to apply for a Social Security Number.
Not infants, not adults. However, you will be taxed anyway to pay for
someone else's retirement even if you never get a SSN. It is the
classic definition of indentured servitude. Americans have been tricked
into getting that number longer than I've been alive when most are not
legally eligible to apply.
That's right. More lies.
is the same only on a much bigger scale. And, like SS, it cannot be
fixed and it cannot be saved. Not unless mother government starts
confiscating your entire paycheck or raises taxes even higher so you
have not a single penny left at the end of the month after paying for a
roof over your head, gas, food and maybe shoes for the kiddies. THAT is
the reality facing this country.
am fully aware of how afraid people are because they have become
dependent on Medicare. Too many want you to work to give them motorized
scooters and free blood pressure this or that. Seems to be okay with
people, though. After all, someday they might want one of those nifty
scooters to get around, so keep demanding more and more for those Ponzi
schemes passed off as "entitlement" programs.
only problem is those taxes you pay with a gun to your head no where
near cover the out put for Medicare. That's why Medicare is now an
unpayable $85.2 TRILLION dollars in liabilities. Those numbers will
increase on the liability side as millions more are forced into
Medicare. On top of that, we're all being raped in more taxes for the
unconstitutional Obamacare for other people's health coverage. And,
don't forget, you get taxed at the state level for Medicare. Taxed to
TRILLION and increasing by the minute. Where do people think that
"money" is going to come from? More taxes taken out of your paycheck?
Here's a reality check. Let's back up a second and refer to some
numbers I covered in a piece by Carolyn Lochhead in 2004:
Ignore Impending U.S. Debt Disaster by Carolyn Lochhead
Kotlikoff, Economics Chairman at Boston University, who has written
abundantly on this subject, offers up a shocking response on how to
close a $51 trillion dollar fiscal gap: "To give you idea how big the
problem is, you'd have to have an immediate and permanent 78 percent
hike in the federal income tax." More than double the payroll tax,
immediately and forever, from 15.3 percent of wages to nearly 32
percent; Raise income taxes by two thirds (roughly 78%), immediately
and forever; Cut Social Security and Medicare benefits by 45 percent,
immediately and forever;"
When Ms. Lochhead wrote that column
in September 2004, the national
debt created by Congress demanded
by voters was $7.3 TRILLION
dollars. Today it is $16.5 TRILLION dollars with roughly 25 MILLION
unemployed Americans who make no "contributions" - taxes.
that $51 TRILLION dollar fiscal "gap" is $122.7 TRILLION dollars. SS,
Medicare and, oh, did you forget the liabilities created by Bush, Jr.
and the Republican controlled Congress for "free prescription drugs"?
That program is now $21.4 TRILLION in liabilities. YOUR bill for that
debt: $1.1 MILLION dollars. YOUR bill for the national debt:
$146,573.00 and climbing on top of the $1.1 million.
children and grand children will inherit an even bigger tab because the
American people have begged the thieves to give them more. Fix the
programs, but don't cut my benefits! The American people, really, have
begged for their own destruction.
now at the tipping point where the takers almost outnumber the
producers. Millions through no fault of their own because of the
economy destroyed by the same incumbents who get elected over and over
and millions who demand the fruits of your labor. The situation will
deteriorate no matter how much BS is dished out by politicians who want
to "save SS and Medicare for future generations".
Medicaid and Medicare Enrollees Now
Outnumber Full-Time Private Sector Workers:
"In 2011, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
(CMS), there were 70.4 million people who enrolled in Medicaid for at
least one month. There were also 48.849 million people enrolled in
Medicare. That gave Medicaid and Medicare a gross combined enrollment
of 119.249 million in 2011." No telling how many are illegal aliens.
recently wrote in a column:
impostor in the White House and scum like Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer
and Harry Reid will continue telling illegal aliens they care about
them when in fact they nothing about them. Only about making sure they
register as Democrats because they promise to steal from you to give to
those who feel you and I ow them. Controlling the lives of millions,
making them dependent instead of independent and self-reliant.
believe this push to give amnesty to another 11 MILLION, which will end
up being twice as high, is to get them sucked into the two giant Ponzi
taxing schemes called Social Security and Medicare. Two programs that
are nearly $90 TRILLION in unpaid mandates.
the 54.4 MILLION murdered babies in the womb who would have been
forced to contribute to those taxing schemes if they had been
allowed to live, and their children forced into those toxic systems,
millions and millions more are now needed to stem the eventual
collapse. Give 11 million plus illegals amnesty and force them
into those Ponzi schemes."
people are living longer, the social security Ponzi and Medicare
schemes cannot be sustained. Oh, there's plenty of talk and fighting
between the two "main" parties as if it means anything. The Republican
and Democratic parties are nothing more than two wings on the same bird
argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and
policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a
foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers.
Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the
American people can "throw the rascals out" at any election without
leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy." Bill Clinton's
mentor, Carrol Quigley, Tragedy
unconstitutional Obamacare has death panels. Even though they have no
jurisdiction nor can the General Government dictate what doctors can
and cannot do for their patients, the stinking Marxist in the Red House
and the parasites who back him up (think Kathleen Sebelius) are in full
force trying to implement every section of that "law":
More evidence of 'death panels' in
of the useless eaters. A conspiracy theory? Not hardly when you've done
as much research as many of us have trying to warn our fellow Americans.
is a monster program that has NEVER run efficiently and has been
crippled by fraud from day one. So called Americans who cheat the

forced into Medicare even when you have your own insurance.
Millionaires who don't want Medicare are forced with a gun to their
head into the system:
High court rejects Medicare challenge
(AP) — "The Supreme Court has turned away a challenge from
former House Majority Leader Dick Armey and other Social Security
recipients who say they have the right to reject Medicare in favor of
continuing health coverage from private insurers. The justices did not
comment Monday in letting stand a federal appeals court ruling that
held that there is no way for people who receive Social Security to
reject Medicare benefits. Armey, a Texas Republican, and two other
former federal employees say private insurance covers more than
Medicare. Two other plaintiffs are wealthy individuals who have high
deductible private insurance and prefer to pay for their health care."
what the lunatics the American people keep reelecting have done? A
system in the hole $85.2 TRILLION dollars, yet those who can afford
their own health insurance, thereby
decreasing the debt, cannot
refuse Medicare or they will lose their social security:
Social Security Will Be Confiscated,
If Medicare Refused
having paid thousands of dollars each in Social Security and Medicare
taxes during their working lives—for which they never sought
reimbursement—the five plaintiffs were told by officials at
the Social Security Administration and Department of Health and Human
Services that they had to forfeit all of their Social Security benefits
if they wished to withdraw from (or not enroll in) Medicare. This
determination resulted from internal policies that were put in place
during the Clinton administration and strengthened by the Bush
administration. The plaintiffs sought a judicial ruling that would
prohibit SSA and HHS from enforcing these policies, which they believed
conflicted with the Social Security and Medicare statutes. A sharply
divided U.S Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit eventually upheld
them. By its decision not to hear the case, the Supreme Court let that
controversial ruling stand."
want Medicare and neither do a whole lot of Americans. I pay my own
health insurance. Can people begin to fully understand the horrific
mess your incumbent and mine in the Outlaw Congress have created? Can
people begin to fully understand those two taxing schemes along with
the "free prescription drugs" cannot be sustained? They cannot be fixed
because there isn't enough money to fix them no matter how many illegal
aliens are given amnesty.
are desperately watching and screaming at their Congress critter not to
cut those programs. I understand the desperation and fear. But, can
those same folks not see all of the above? Can those same folks not
understand they have doomed their children and grand children to a life
of financial bondage to pay for their medical treatment? Is this what
YOU want for your children and grand children?

and more of your hard earned paycheck will be stolen from you for
unsustainable programs that many Americans do not want to be part of,
yet they are forced with the IRS' gun to their head to fund.
think tanks in the country can yap about private SS accounts and other
"solutions", but they are no solutions. Not when Americans are forced
into VOLUNTARY taxing schemes by lies and deception. No one is required
to get a SSN to live or work in this country, but if you don't, you are
taxed anyway with a gun to your head.
is required to enroll in Medicare, but you will be taxed anyway with a

forced with a gun to your head to pay those taxes all your working
American people have continued to reelect the same SOBs who destroyed
the greatest health care delivery
system in the world starting
back in 1973 with the HMO Act.
Instead of addressing that disaster and getting government out of
medical care for which they have no constitutional authority, Americans
continue to reelect the same scoundrels who have made an even bigger
mess affecting nearly 100 million people. .
we're all paying the price. I predict the worst for both programs
because there isn't enough money to fund them either at current
levels or even with a few billion dollars in cuts. Not when the
program is carrying $85.2 TRILLION in liabilities just for Medicare.
Back on August 10, 2009, in a column, I
cited Medicare's liabilities at that time: $34 TRILLION. In
just four years, Medicare's liabilities have increased a whopping
$51 TRILLION dollars. Can people not see what's down the road
five years unless a few million useless eaters get on their way
sooner rather than later?
Americans are hoarding what little they have left at the end of the
month, which is not good for the economy. They know what I've written
above is true and it scares them as it should scare everyone regardless
of which "party" you belong to or don't belong.
people the truth about SS and Medicare when I ran for Congress back in
the early 90s. Even though I was told not to because those two programs
are the "sacred cows" of politics, I believe every American has the
right to know the truth so they can make informed decisions and plans
for the future. Our future, our pursuit of life, liberty and happiness
has been destroyed by Demorats and Republicrats in the U.S. Congress
for the past 100 years. Starting with the non-ratified Sixteenth and
Seventeenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and the Federal Reserve
Banking Act (all three in 1913), followed by the social security taxing
scheme and then LBJ's "great society" (Medicare) to fast track
America's downfall into socialism and then full blown communism.
bickering between the two parties in the Outlaw Congress will continue
while those two programs go further into debt, while beneficiaries of
those programs demand no cuts. You see? It's a no-win situation that is
not going to have a good outcome.
said, we passed the point of no return a long, long time ago. Instead
of implementing constitutional solutions instead of pushing socialism,
the opposite road has been taken.
