    I try to remain positive.

    Because even with private insurance I can choose to pay more, for the less cost effective procedure.

    They rate averages.
    If you fall into the average, all is well, if you don't, you're out of luck.

    We'll see how that plays out for them!
    First off, I'm not affiliated with the GOP.

    Second, I seriously question your morals and sincerity to making things better.
    You're only interested in "winning", not interested in really fixing anything.

    Otherwise you wouldn't make comments like this.
    And just to show again, you don't ever pay attention.

    I said I favored a modest tax increase, but keep going on with your bs talking points.
    You're not here to debate, you're here to preach.

    Seniors need to pay a little more.

    Congrats on the house. I did the same. The joys of home ownership.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    You did not answer the question. You changed the quuestion. Do you support the USA honoring its debts according to its Constitutional obligations?

    Sure, in some form or fashion.
    That's why I answered the way I did.

    For current and near current retirees, yes.
    For everyone else, I believe it needs to be adjusted.
