    We will never know but we do know what the Obama record is and it is that record that will make him a one term President. There is no justification for giving this guy another 4 years but as I can see here there are many very poorly informed people who ignore the rhetoric and buy the rhetoric. Obama had total control of the Congress for two years and we have seen the results of Obamanomics which of course you and others want to ignore.

    Not really. If this was the case, the entire insurance industry would have collapsed a long time ago. Insurance companies take the money received from premiums, and invests it in avenues that can provide the great yields with the least risk.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    How are your reading comprehension skills?
    Obviously better than yours, here is the budget of the United States. Tell me why SS is listed as an on budget item? Is it ego that will not let you admit that you are wrong and that liberalism has made a fool out of you?

    They are funded via government revenue (taxes) and re-service.

    1Perry: "It's illegal for me to kill someone that is no threat to me. The government may do so. Unfortunately the government allows themselves to legally do things what would be illegal for others."

    Sheik Yerbuti: "In what way does the government legally kill someone who is not a threat?"

    And since we are running a huge deficit, have a 14.6 trillion dollar debt, and have trillions in IOU's for SS where is the money going to come from to pay those obligations?
