    Wow, you guys do leap around. You would be heart broken and saddened to see what this country would be like without medicare and the things we do have in place. really, you would.

    LOL, yeah we see what you read and who you listen to. How about thinking with your brain instead of your heart. How do you know that 40,000 a year isn't comfortable for people? Any idea what the cost of living is in all areas of the country?

    Sounds a lot like you, are you sure you don't have us confused with you? Tell us what kind of business you actually ran?

    You point to Medicare and SS as a success story without even considering the options. Any idea what yours and your employer's contribution to SS would generate you in the way of return had you been allowed to invest it in a simple CD without being able to withdraw it? Any idea what kind of healthcare policy you could purchase with your Medicare "contributions?" Like all liberals options really aren't considered

    Average: $58,627 Though if you ask, they note that isn't middle class or comfortable.

    An antique shop for some years. Currently I'm creating my own LLC, computer business.

    Had a friend who handled much of his funds for retirement in the market. He was very conservative, on these type of boards for a long time. He and his wife were aging and needed those funds just as the market crashed. He larned that he didn't have time for it to build again. He was screwed. He changed his tune. I wonder about you?

    That certainly is their opinion which you readily adopt. Now prove that someone cannot live comfortably on 40,000 a year plus benefits and how that varies around the nation?

    Funny, I grew up learning personal responsibility and that it wasn't your responsibility or the government's to take care of my healthcare or retirement. What has happened to this country that has changed people into that entitlement mentality?

    I had a network of 130 Convenience stores that employed approximately 1200 employees and I was totally responsible for their wages, benefits, for hiring, firing, and of course each monthly budget and financial statement . I can tell you that you are very naive when it comes to business operations and doubt that an antique shop gave you that experience to be an expert on business operations, P&L's, and return on investment.

    Money doesn't grow on trees and govt. regulations and economic policies certainly affected my hiring decisions since I cannot print money. Further the investment in each of those locations was approximately 500k-1MM each and yes, I had debt service.
