    He's starting to lose the half of the country living off of the government. Bad news ... for him.

    I hear you, but I'd argue give before you take it is different than just taking. Obviously every case is different.

    The fabled 47% who pay no income tax contain an awful lot of senior citizens.

    But a lot of seniors do pay taxes and a retirement plan funded by EE and ER is not money for nothing?

    If you wish to change the talking point (i.e. half the country are takers because they don't pay income taxes) to be more precise, you can, but otherwise realize you're talking about a lot of senior citizens. Worse yet, senior citizens make up the largest portion of those who pay no income tax and no payroll tax, then factor in medicare and were talking about a group of people we might refer to as "super takers".

    When you can vote multiple times in most parts of this country with little fear of getting caught, polls do become rather meaningless.

    Except for those senior citizens who chose to be stay at home moms. Those old ladies are pure takers.

    Ya how many of the baby boomers never held a job? I know you just talking out of your ace right now but come up with something with some merit.

    On top of that, older women on medicare is not any problem to our county or debt.

    You don't consider being a stay at home mom a job?
