    Would love to but the reality is there aren't enough people to fund your retirement income today and that makes it a Ponzi scheme. It was never intended that someone else would pay for your supplemental SS payments

    When do you think the republican party will start worrying more about the middle class and poor and less about pleasing thier corporate buddies, when do you think America and Americans will mean more to them then the dollars thier corporate buddies give to them?

    Contextually I though his speech was good he could have delivered it with a bit more fire but I think his message was clear.

    Do I remember you saying that you ran a 200,000,000 dollar company?

    When did you first learn that it was the Government's job to take care of you from cradle to grave?

    Yes, I ran a $200 million dollar a year company with over 1200 employees. I never taught them that it was the government's job to provide for them and that there weren't consequences for personal failure and poor choices made. Seems you never learned that.

    Why should anyone inform them of what they already know?

    Again, you're wrong that's exactly the way Social Security was intended - for current workers to pay for the previous generation. Where the hell would the money come from if that were not the case???

    Btw, I saw the debate last night, Santelli doesn't know his ass and a hole in the ground. Two idiots debating - so what?

    So if some of them find themselves in the gutter, you let them rot there? How does that fit with the Preamble of our Constitution?

    Wrong, SS was never intended to be paid in the first place, retirement was 65 and life expectancy was 62. then as life expectancy changed there was still more going into the system than was being paid out so LBJ saw a source of money to fund th Vietnam War and got passed the unified budget bill which put SS on budget. Surpluses intended for future use were then used to fund other programs instead of being put aside for the future. Now there are trillions in IOU's that have to be funded and Obama proposes extenion of the tax cuts for payroll taxes that actually fund SS. Liberals buy the rhetoric because that is what they want to believe. Pb, nothing is going to change your mind including the facts posted. Guess the question is why?

    Some of them? why don't you find out who truly needs help and solve the problem instead of lumping the clueless and the abusers with those truly in need?
