    "anti-poor"--maybe you should go back and re-read the comment?

    The subject of the post refers to the first sentence:

    the poverty program meme (2+ / 0-)

    Middle class Americans do not pay the payroll tax for 45 years so their money can be given to the poor.

    The poverty program meme IS that "middle class Americans do not pay the payroll tax for 45 years so their money can be given to the poor".  I don't think you read it correctly if it's your position that greenbell is pushing that meme.

    You, OTOH, are pushing this garbage:

    To be honest, Democrats have been using this argument more than Republicans
    You can surely be more specific, hm? Exactly which Democrats are you referring to?

    And if "so many" are pushing it, how does it make all of them wrong and little old you right?

      me that you and a number of people in this community aren't pushing the argument that Republicans are going to attack Democrats from the left on Social Security? You all claim to be Democrats. If you aren't let it be known. but don't tell me that this hasn't been the meme for many days now.

      And if you agree with your cohort that Democrats are robbing from the middleclass to give to the poor and begin a doctrine of scapegoating the poor then that is you and your cohort’s affair. But it is distasteful and the same argument is used by the right.

      I don't believe the Democratic Party is help by starting a war between the poor and the middle class. He believes the Democratic Party is also against the Elderly. What kind of propagana is that? Since you are here defending him, you no doubt believe the same thing, which is an amazing assertion to make of the party which recently passed a healthcare law, which seniors are benefitting from around the country.

      Very strange.

        I'm saying you didn't read that comment correctly.

        Nothing strange about it.
