Social Security Checks Aug. 3rd


Just heard Mark Levine on WGST (Atlanta) talk radio. He is a Constitutional lawyer. He quoted from a U.S. House committee investigative session where it was discovered that the U. S. Treasury will have sufficient funds to pay Social Security and Veterans benefits for the month of August 2011. So the head of the Social Security Administration was questioned as to how these benefits would not be paid (Obama had threatened to stop Social Security payments on 3 Aug.). The committee found that Social Security does not have the authority to issue checks. The Social Security checks are issued by the Treasury Department headed by Timothy Geithner. Even Geithner does not have the authority to not issue Social Security unless he is directed by President Obama to not issue the checks. Pres.Obama “alone” will be responsible if Social Security checks are not issued starting on August 3, 2011

Had enough change yet?

This is a no whine zone: To the ill-informed and uninformed, there are two things Obama must pay, one by the Constitution, the other by an Act of Congress…if he does not, he is in contempt of Congress, another possible impeachable act…the two are paying the military adn sending out Social Security checks…so when your comments suggest otherwise, they will not be posted…ok?

    If SSi, disability and military pay is not paid in August America needs to revolt, impeach the Government and elect new leaders who care and know what it is like to be a middle class and lower class citizens. all the so called senate and congressmaen have been in office so long they do not remember their families hardships or what it is like to earn money which is only enough to survive on and that is usually a hopeless deal. Our wonderful government has spend our money like it grows on trees and put this country in a bankrupt possition. It is not Obama’s fault no matter what you or anyone else says, he is trying to help this country. some of his moves may have not been the right one’s but someone had to make the decisions and it was his job …… As far as I am concerned they need to get rid of the parties, all of them because the parties are the ones that cause this country problems fighting with each other over who is going to be right. Decisions have to be made on a independant decision where all senators and congressman vote their heart and not their party. It is for the people by the people not for the government by the government. But, the government rules all of us anyway they want to, they can take our money anytime they want to for any reason, stop our benefits , deny us the right to what is ours by contract with them. They can send trillions of dollars over seas top other countries and let our country and people suffer hardships when that money could be here helping people in this country in need, staving children in this country, homeless people, people who have lost their jobs because of government spending and rule …. I can go on and on but why, ….

      Mi, It certainly isn’t Obama’s fault alone, but the $1.4 TRILLION debt is…he took us from $800 Billion to this debt in 2 years…Bush inherited a $300 billion deficit and never blamed Clinton…but he too grew it by 500 billion…but that was over 8 years. On top of this $1.4 trillion, Obama, democrats and RINO’s want to add another $1+ trillion! That through borrowing MORE from foreign countries who hate America….we can NOT sustain this…

      You say end the parties…what is your suggestion then? I say return to the base the parties were founded on. If you haven’t read it, I would suggest the 5000 Year Leap. You can order it from Amozon or at the library…

    I dont understand all the bad talk on obama, He was just stating that there will be no money in the coffers to cover ss checks. Its not his fault, he has been the only white house leader trying to reslove the issue of the debt ceiling. Congress republican John Boehner wouldnt return obama’s phone calls to resovle this bill in time. he offers something completely reasonable, and just to be childish beacuse he has a chip on his shoulder for obama, he denies it so it would look like its all obamas fault. yes i count on my check for rent and bills, but i am mad at these demorcrats and republicans for not putting politics aside when it comes to messing with amercans lives. the economy is in such bad shape for this type of childs play in the white house, demorcrats not suppourting republicans and vice versa. if boehner wants to just cut 22 billion, let him. it looks like he doesnt want to fix the problem but just put it off to make this problem come up again, and when it comes up again ignorant people will just blame who is the president

    I hear a lot of people in my neighborhood make remarks that some people are upset because of obama being the first black president.I don’t judge a man or woman by their color.i never have,we are all God’s people.Why do people in times like these still bring up or make racial remarks,or imply that others are when they are not.It’s the man that makes mistakes not the color.And the president and former presidents have all made mistakes.However not alone.Republican or Democrat,hugh doesn’t matter to me,they all lie when they get into office.People, I’m talking to all Americans.Black,Whites,etc.History shows that several Treaties,Polices,etc,etc,were made with the indians,by the way, who were here first.They were lied to,and forced to move and do as our government says in order to get along.You live were i won’t you to or not.All those presidents were white.So I personally do not look at members of congress by political name or president by color.I look at the man.I make alot of mistakes in my life,now and then as a child.Every time i noticed that a good woman was there to help pick up the pieces.A good mother stands behide her children no matter what.We need a mother president,a honest one who will stand for her children.i personally would like to see a God fearing one in office myself.One nation under god,etc,etc,united we stand.What happened to this.What God was our forefathers talking about.That’s our problem,we forgot about this God.We wonder what is going on and going to happen,does not scripture tell you.I’ts been told,it will happen.We will see some things as christians but we will survive.So I’m really not worried when I think about it.I don’t put my dependance in Obama,Congress or future Presidents,mine is in my heavenly father.

    I am disabled and the little bit I get helps to pay the bills. I don’t like being on disability and if I could work I would. I always had 2 or 3 jobs at a time since I was 15 years old. I have paid my taxes as does my husband. My husband works 12 hour days just so we can barely make ends meet. My question is this : Why the threat of Social Security checks not being sent instead of Welfare Checks? A lot of those people just don’t want to work and spit out kids so they can stay on it. They haven’t paid a dime in any taxes yet those who have are being threatened. I didn’t vote Obama and for good reason. He sure won’t get my vote the next time around either.

        No Mary, not harsh, but please don’t fear, there is a Congressional Act that says they can NOT withhold SS payments…period. Back when Clinton shut the government down, congress passed it…if Obama believes he can stop any payments to SS, he will be in Contempt of Congress and with impeachment already being called for by many, he will not take that chance. He already informed the banks that there will be no default…he is standing on scare tactics to ‘nudge’ people in fear to contact congress and demand they give Obama his way…it isn’t going to happen….

      Marjorette, Please don’t fear. Even if no deal is past, there will be no default, SS checks will go out. There are plenty of ‘revenues’ which is actually taxes you pay every week. As long as they are taking taxes out of your check, they have the revenue to pay ther bills, they just can’t spend on new programs and pork. God bless you and keep your faith. It is a crime and a shame this man deals in terrifying the people who depend on these services.

  6. To Big Bill…..where do you get your figures? I know a LOT of military families who are on food stamps because their income is so low….they drive old cars and pretty much have nothing else new. They shop in thrift stores and clearance racks. They live in low income housing. Maybe you’re hobnobbing with Generals….but enlisted men and women aren’t living lavish lifestyles by ANY means. And how old are you? You’re comparing $138 in THAT economy to what they make in THIS economy. If you want people to enlist in the military, you can’t say OK, do it out of the goodness of your heart and screw your family, they can fend for themselves. If you’re going to do that, then you also have to let them back OUT of the military when their family CAN’T fend for themselves. You can’t have it both ways.

    As far as Obama goes, I’d like to give him a one way seat on the last space shuttle with a jet pack so he can be ejected upon arrival in space. Uhhhh, buh bye. I’m on Disability and always trying to find a way to work from home to supplement and hopefully get off of it, although I’m close enough to retirement age that will probably not happen. But I try, anyway. I paid into Social Security for decades. I also had deductions from my paycheck for Medicare so that other people could have the insurance I could not afford to have. Now that I need what I’ve been paying for, I’m told it’s an *entitlement* and I should somehow magically find a way to not need it. Exactly how does he think wiping out the total income of millions of people is going to help the economy? Apparently the deductions were still going to be coming out of people’s checks….I haven’t heard that would stop.

    Social Security would have had plenty of money if it hadn’t been forced to *invest* the *excess* in government bonds….which basically amounted to theft, since there’s no money to back those bonds. If all the money that has been paid INTO Social Security had been left where it belonged, there would be no discussion about it right now. But Congress saw a place to pilfer and they did it, simple as that. Now that their pilfering has backfired, it’s the fault of the People who paid into the fund for withdrawing from their FORCED investment….so the cure? Stop the payments cold turkey. There’s not a high enough tree……

    Even though it would probably render me homeless, I would almost say let him do it….then we could really have a chance to get rid of his treasonous ass.

    I am sitting here on SSDI for a long-term disability, I have a small child, and my disabled and retired father living under the same roof. We do not live lavish and I have dad here because it saves the state moey by not having him in a nursing home. If we do not get our checks each month, what are we to do?? I can put dad in a nursing home, if I could work there are no jobs here and since I have not worked, I will not receive any other help??? I wonder how many government officials will get paid.

      Sorry for your plight, I know alot of disabled people on SSDI…did you vote to put this man iinto office? Will you vote to put him in again or any of the marxist/socialists who would use the poorest among us to complete their agenda? There is an Act that they can NOT deny/cut funds to SS or the military, and there are more than enough “revenues” [taxes] to pay all the debt, SS and military. Unfortunately, the people in the military, fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan have had their pay CUT by 50% by Obama and they are NOT being resupplied on the battlefield. They are working if temps of 130* and carrying 100 to 150 lb packs with not enough water, food or AMMUNITION! Yes, congress gets 100% of their pay, along with their entire bloated staffs…wake up America! It is time to TAKE YOUR COUNTRY BACK!

        There was a time in this country when men and women served in the military out of a sense of honor, pride for their country and bravery. There was no price tag attached to it. When I was 17 the Marine Corps pay was $138 per month plus chow and a spot in the barracks. Now we have to take care of the families, free housing, free insurance, no utilities, free educations for the entire family of the person serving their country. On top of all that they receive a decent paycheck, a lot more than $138 a month. God bless our veterans who serve we need them but remember back in my day you were drafted, you had no choice and you sure as hell didnt get all these sweet perks they get now. War is ugly, I want soldiers who are there because they are warriors at heart not in the pocket book. Maybe we wouldn’t be getting our asses handed to us by all these backwoods podunk third world countries if the military was like it was in WWII and Korea and even Vietnam to a point. Lets get these greedy no good self serving politicians out of the military picture and quit using the military as a pawn in their childish self serving squabbbles. Our military deserves their pay by God but they don’t deserve to be lured over to the desert to be used as sacrificial lambs for that asshole George Bush’s JR. and SR. personal vendettas and for the sake of filling their pockets at the expense of the ves of our brave men and women.

    Social Security belongs to the people that was taken directly out of OUR pay checks to ensure our retirement and disability we have been REQUIRED to have it directly taken out of our pay checks that we worked for there was no one asking “Do you want Social Security taken out of your check?” it was just taken so how can they take money that belongs to the people that paid that directly to the Government? Its theft and to lead people to believe they are building for their retirement or money if they become disabled is wrong if it can just be taken away many many people will suffer many children of those disabled people will suffer I wonder if the people that voted this man into office still feel the same about him how I didn’t want him there then and don’t now, he sealed his fate for re-election with this horrible thing.

      I say God Bless to all of you that rely on SSDI to make ends meet. The only reason BO won’t do anything about illegals and all those that do not deserve welfare and SS payments is because it is his voting base. He is using scare tactics….no checks…can’t do that….then he says NO CHRISTMAS…never happen. Christ was born…he can’t stop that and Christians worship the day he was born. He talks to America like we are unruly children with no educations. I believe he is sneaky…where is his open forum on all these things so we can see just how agreements are done…the deals are all done behind closed doors. Is that transparency???? He is a puppet president and do not fool yourself. I am betting when this(his presidency) is all over we will find out stuff that will knock all our socks off. I believe his is a dangerous man to be running such a great country. We are not and never were a socialist country. We do not want to go the way of Europe and the Euro. I have read about the US giving millions to countries like China to help them go green…is someone joking? We need that money. Look what Air Force One costs to operate on an hourly basis…just Google: Air Force One hourly costs…..and he is on that plane ALL the time vacationing with his family to Hawaii, Cape Cod and Spain to mention some and rousting out political donations for his campaign. You and I are paying that bill, Outraged yet? What about all his Czars. Look up Bill Ayers! Cass Sunstein and his wife and the best one who has been only PUBLICLY sidelined is Van Jones. I say LESS GOVERNMENT is better….it has always served the US very well. These people are scary people. Who cares about color of skin…I strongly suggest most do not. So why is every confrontation ear marked as racial. This is a dangerous person and you must all remember that some stranger has told you that so when it comes to pass you will have heard it before. Watch how slippery he is when asked a pointed question. You do not get an answer…you get spin. He must be replaced and you all know it. We must choose carefully as we do not want to swing as far right as he has taken us left. That too could be a catastrophe. We must read…watch…think carefully and surely vote. Again, to those that feel they will be severely affected by non-payment of monthly government checks….please…do not worry. You will get your check. Just keep smiling…Anyway, it always makes people wonder what you are up to. 🙂
