    Fantastic indeed. It succeeded in cutting the poverty rate among the elderly in half.

    Which is not an opinion shared by most of America and all of the presidential candidates. Not one of them has talked about abolishing SS.

    Really? What is the amount of SS collected by the poor and then what is the poverty amount in this country?

    No, that isn't fantastic. It should be at the local level, not the federal level.

    Then argue it is a good deal that needs to be moved to the state level. And ask the states if they want it. If not, then what?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    i really love how Conservatives quote the Constitution (not actually quoting it, they just say the word "Constitution") saying that because something isn't in there, we shouldn't do it...yeah tell me if this makes sense, for our current problems that we face as a nation we should rely on a document that was created 200 plus years ago, and we shouldn't change it to fit our present day environment. And for the record, the Constitution does say provide for the general welfare, and when translated into todays terms, yeah people can get some money when they don't have a job, or they can get help paying for food, or health insurance.

    actually moving it to the state level, is not a bad idea, but i don't see how it fixes the problem.

    The original Constitution said PROMOTE the General Welfare but politicians learned that they can buy votes changed to word to provide and liberals today continue to support that policy which does nothing but expand the role of the govt. and creating more dependence

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    I don't think it does. And while I don't oppose moving it, I suspect the states will object. I could be wrong, but would be interested in hearing more.

    Looks like the OWS crowd has a lot of work to do especially to get 4 more years of Obama
