Seems the govt. has creates that entitlement mentality. You relied on SS for your retirement? Was that the intent of SS or was it supposed to be a supplement to SS? Think about it. The sooner people realize that the Federal Govt. isn't the answer the sooner we actually solve social problems because that is the role of the state and local communities.

    As for trying the local route, I contributed thousands yearly to my church and no for a fact that no one has been turned down for help.
    When I grow up I want to be just as special as you are. Now **** off.

    Sorry for your problem, Winston, but to put faith in the Federal Govt. solving that problem for you is being very naive and ignoring history. Social engineering was never the role of the Federal Govt. yet today that seems to be what most people expect. That is how the Federal govt. created a 14.5 trillion dollar debt and maintained its power over people like you.

    Thanks, sorry to confuse you with facts, logic, and common sense. Not what you wanted to hear but that is reality

    I'm grateful for the research the National Institues of Health has supported over the years. Through their programs supported by TAX dollars a better understanding of how the heart works and development of drug regimes that have saved millions of lives.

    I am not the one ignoring history.

    Apparently yes you are because results don't really matter on economic issues. Most of the healthcare enhancements have come from the private for profit businesses which is made this country great. Amazing how you dismiss the 14.5 trillion debt and blame it on the 1.4 trillion dollar war and people keeping more of their money. Amazing how much confidence you have for a Federal govt. that has created this debt and never solved a social problem

    You're wasting your breath. People who are interested in placing blame are in no way interested in facts, or even reality.

    Link? Look at the Pfizer website, Merck, or any other phara company. What do you think these companies use R&D money for and where does that R&D money come from?

    Facts? I have seen no facts from you. Refute these

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!
