    Then how would explain it passed even though
    The House, Senate, and Presidency was Democratic...the Republicans helped but Democrats had overwhelming majorities.
    Most importantly, right after Civil Rights passed, the South which resented Civil Rights started voting Republican and has since.

    also worth noting - when the thrust of your argument is to destroy the worth of bonds and stocks... you are basically saying "F--- Retired People".

    The Ryan Plan which turns Social Security into a voucher and it passed the House with full Republican support.
    The fact Presidential canidates are saying Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme.

It's almost as if cpwill either made up or distorted what he heard...
    i heard what they said - and then found and linked the relevant portion to you from a left wing supportive website. you can complain all you like about it

    Get educated for once. Ryan proposed vouchers for Medicare, not SS.

    Does this site have an Ignore button ?

    Right. The Dems had huge majorities. But LBJ could not pass it with all those Dems. Because all the southern Dems, who stayed Dems, btw, were against it. It was Republicans who gave LBJ the majority.

    You haven't a clue about electoral demographics either. The South is benefitting from the relocation of disenfranchised folks from the failed liberal North. Look to the shift in electoral counts since 1970. Folks still moving south too. Conservative folks. Away from the liberal morass of tax and spend states such as Illinois and New York,

    Now, to the Ignore button.

    I mispoke no reason to be rude.

    I'm actually very familiar with the Ryan Plan.

    The gray voters are organizing and it looks like they are going to join with the Wall Street protesters. My guess is this will be called "Regular Americans are mad as heck and aren't going to take this anymore" instead of OWS by Thanksgiving.
    • The seniors are pretty darn hot about the Tea Party putting SS and Medicare on the chopping block while refusing to raise taxes on the wealthy.
    • The younger voters are upset that educational assistance when on the chopping block while refusing to raise taxes on the wealthy.
    • There are a lot of Hispanic children born in the US to illegal immigrants that are now over age 18 and they are upset that that the GOP has blocked all legislation that would legal to their relatives be able to make their status legal and to have the protections most workers in America enjoy.
    • The unemployed are upset that the GOP has tried to block programs to help them retrain and programs to create jobs
    • A whole lot of uninsured people are angry that the GOP blocked a public option for healthcare.
    • People are angry that Americans pay far more for medications than residents of other countries do

    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.
