Let's not forget that at one time during the primaries, Trump said the minumum wage was "too high."

 

I think the main difference between Putin and Trump is not their ideals, which seem to be one and the same ,but, rather intelligence.  Putin is evil, but very intelligent.  Trump is evil, and incredibly stupid--he doesn't even realize that Putin is playing him like a finely tuned fiddle.

 

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

Republicans like to tamper with Social Security and Medicare because businesses don't like paying those employment taxes.

Here is a white paper from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce describing what the problems are with these State Auto-IRA programs.

It is not about people saving for retirement, it is the way these were set up.

Republicans seek to enslave Americans by preventing them from ever being able to walk away from their jobs, no matter how badly they're treated or how little they're paid.

 

If that sounds "harsh", please provide an alternative, logical explanation for Republicans constantly trying to destroy Social Security and Medicare while driving down wages with right to work for less laws and subsidies for companies that send good jobs to Commies in Asia.

 

 


And lets not forget just because Russia is not called the Soviet Union any longer doesn;t change the fact that while it might pretend it holds Democratic Elections - it's still run by Commies

 

Here is a recent statement by Putin:

 

“You know that I, like millions of Soviet citizens, over 20 million, was a member of the Communist Party of the USSR and not only was I a member of the party but I worked for almost 20 years for an organization called the Committee for State Security,” Putin said, referring to the KGB.

 

“I was not, as you know, a party member by necessity,” he said. “I liked Communist and socialist ideas very much and I like them still.”

 

Here are some recent Statements by the Commie Loving Bolshevik occupying the Whitehouse now

 

October 2007: Trump said Putin's doing a great job
 
"Look at Putin -- what he's doing with Russia -- I mean, you know, what's going on over there. I mean this guy has done -- whether you like him or don't like him -- he's doing a great job in rebuilding the image of Russia and also rebuilding Russia period," Trump told Larry King on CNN.
 
December 2011: Trump praised Putin's "intelligence" and "no-nonsense way" in his book "Time to Get Tough."
 
"Putin has big plans for Russia. He wants to edge out its neighbors so that Russia can dominate oil supplies to all of Europe," Trump said. "I respect Putin and Russians but cannot believe our leader (Obama) allows them to get away with so much...Hats off to the Russians."
 
June 2013: Trump wonders if Putin will be his "new best friend"
 
"Will he become my new best friend?" Trump asked of Putin in a tweet wondering whether Putin would attend the 2013 Miss Universe pageant Trump brought to Moscow.
 
October 2013: Trump says Putin is outsmarting the US
 
"I think he's done really a great job of outsmarting our country," Trump told Larry King after Putin successfully dissuaded the US from striking Syria by arranging with the US for the removal of Syria's chemical weapons.
 
July 31, 2015: Trump says they'd get along
 
"I think I'd get along very well with Vladimir Putin. I just think so," Trump said in one of his first comments about the Russian leader since launching his presidential bid last June.
 
Oct. 11, 2015: Trump says they had good ratings together
 
Asked on CBS' "Face the Nation" about similarities between him and Putin, Trump pointed to their appearance on same edition of "60 Minutes."
 
"I think the biggest thing we have is that we were on '60 Minutes' together and we had fantastic ratings. One of your best-rated shows in a long time," Trump joked. "So that was good, right? So we were stable mates."
 
Trump said he and Putin "are very different," but that they would "get along very well."
 
"I think that I would probably get along with him very well. And I don't think you'd be having the kind of problems that you're having right now," Trump said.
 
Nov. 10, 2015: Trump reiterates that he and Putin "were stablemates"
 
"I got to know him very well because we were both on '60 Minutes,' we were stablemates, and we did very well that night," Trump said, despite the fact that he and Putin had been interviewed in separate countries at different times for the same news program.
It's a comment Trump has repeatedly made at rallies.
 
Dec. 17, 2015: Trump returns Putin's praise
 
Donald Trump issued a statement after Putin praised the real estate mogul as a "talented person" and "the absolute leader of the presidential race."
 
"It is always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond," Trump said in a statement. "I have always felt that Russia and the United States should be able to work well with each other towards defeating terrorism and restoring world peace, not to mention trade and all of the other benefits derived from mutual respect."
Trump took heat from his GOP rivals for the statement, but refused to back down.
 
Dec. 18, 2015: Trump defends against allegations Putin has ordered the killings of journalists
 
"He's running his country and at least he's a leader, unlike what we have in this country," Trump said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "I think our country does plenty of killing also."
 
Feb. 17: Trump says he'd be "crazy" to disavow Putin's praise
 
"I have no relationship with him other than he called me a genius. He said Donald trump is a genius and he is going to be the leader of the party and he's going to be the leader of the world or something," Trump said, embellishing Putin's praise.
 
"These characters that I'm running against said, 'We want you to disavow that statement.' I said what, he called me a genius, I'm going to disavow it? Are you crazy? Can you believe it? How stupid are they."
 
"And besides that wouldn't it be good if we actually got along with countries. Wouldn't it actually be a positive thing. I think I'd have a good relationship with Putin. I mean who knows," he continued.

2/3ds of Americans CANNOT save for retirement because every dime they make is needed to support their families NOW because their real income is what it was back in 1964 when their employer took care of retirement for them.

2/3 of Americans not investing in Retirement

Only 14 percent of employers offer plans

 

Now, U.S. Census Bureau researchers have come up with estimates that rely on tax data, which should be more reliable than surveys. Their conclusion: Only about a third of workers are saving in a 401(k) or similar tax-deferred retirement plan. Also, the gap is far wider than expected between the number of employers offering retirement plans, and the number of workers saving in them.

 

The demise of the pension

 

Census researchers are still studying the tax data, cross-referencing it with other databases to get a fuller picture of how Americans are saving. For example, researchers are using retirement plan filing documents to get a better sense of how many workers are still covered by traditional pensions, also known as defined benefit plans.

 

According to a Pew Charitable Trusts analysis of survey data released Feb. 15, only 10 percent of workers over age 22 have a traditional pension. Just 6 percent of millennials have a pension while 13 percent of baby boomers do.

 

Not surprisingly, the Census data suggest well-paid workers find it easier to save than the lowest-paid. But income isn’t the only factor. Eligibility is also a major issue for part-time workers and people who change jobs frequently. Companies often require employees to work for a certain amount of time before they can sign up for a 401(k), and employers aren’t required to allow part-time workers into a plan until they’ve worked 1,000 hours during the previous year. 

 

Another problem made clear by the new report is that many workers simply don’t know their company 401(k) exists. Workers also might never get around to filling out the paperwork, or could be intimidated and confused by the need to make investment decisions. Companies can help solve all those problem by automatically signing up eligible workers, and requiring them to opt out if they don’t want to participate. Doing so has been proven to boost enrollment, but momentum has now stalled for automatic 401(k) features.

 

House moves to block auto-enrollment

 

California, Oregon, Illinois, Maryland, and Connecticut have started programs designed to encourage workers to save. Employers in those states would be required to either offer a retirement plan, or automatically enroll their workers in a state-sponsored individual retirement account. The states had the blessing of the Obama administration, which issued rules allowing states and even large cities to create portable retirement accounts if they want. 

 

On Feb. 15, however, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to rescind those rules. Echoing the arguments of the financial industry, Republicans argued state auto-enrollment plans constitute unfair competition to the financial industry. If the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate and President Donald Trump also sign off, any state and city auto-IRA plans would be placed in jeopardy.
