    Exactly, why can't conservative get it?

    LOL, Federal Payroll taxes? What the hell does that have to do with the fact that you are paying for Medicare up front years before you will use it.

    How's the water situation down there? (Not trying to stir the pot with this question; I've been watching news reports of entire lakes drying up and am really concerned for you guys.) I really hope you get a tropical storm soon.

    Reagan = Democrat in 1988??

So let's increase the federal taxpayer exposure
    It's managed by the state.

    Let's see if I have this right, you get a paycheck, in that paycheck is Medicare tax and when you turn 65 then you use Medicare as your healthcare and because you use Medicare what you paid is an expense to the govt? Wow, liberal logic, got to love it!

    Managed by both and anything mandated by the Federal govt should be funded by the states, like the expansion of Medicaid the two years Obama had a Democrat Congress

    This such a stupid ****ing Conservative approach to getting minority votes.

    You should be offended by the liberals. They are holding you down by making you dependent on the government. Vote for us.

    Minorities are welfare aren't simply going to vote for your side, because you paint the others as masked racists holding them down. If you really wanted to help them, help themselves... then have have to actually help them and then they'll help themselves. You have to propose ways of getting people off welfare and providing better education. YYour side simply doesn't do that. You just count on saying the other side is worse all the time, and then you propose union busting and proclaim that will fix inner city schools. The entire approach is ****ing stupid and out of touch.

    Where did I say that Reagan was a Democrat in 1988? Yes, we do need a tropical storm but not a hurricane. I survived Ike.

    This may help you on the uninsured particular the part about programs available that don't require people to buy healthcare insurance

    It's deducted from your pay check, yes... but that doesn't make it state funded...
