    Putting the government in charge of yet one more thing where they have no business being is simply wrong. And we are going to fix it.
    Socialist, fascist and statist at the same time. Amazing. I think you forgot Maoist, Marxist... and all other "ists" that are out there whose definitions you don't know as well.

    There is nothing worse than being slaves to the state.

    It's all anti-Randian, no matter how much sense it makes currently Rand, who died sucking up Social Security and Medicare benefits, would not have approve of it therefore we must oppose it because in her book, well, you get the rest.

    As well you should. It is not too late for you to come to the right side and to be on the right side of the history of liberty.

    Largely a toothless effort wasn't it?

    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.

    5. In 1962, between 9% and 16% of seniors went to charitable organizations to get their medical costs paid.

    6. In 1962, more than 25% of all seniors went without medical care due to health costs

    7. Before Medicare, 33% of all seniors were living in poverty. Today, less than half that number, or 14%, live in poverty.

    So what is the truth? The plain truth is — America’s seniors are vastly better off today because of Medicare. A return to private insurance programs would devastate the quality of life for middle income Americans. - See more at:

    Health Care for Seniors before Medicare
    Does this mean you are for the massive theft of wealth from the young to give to the greedy geezers? What will happen if the young ever figure it out?

    No freedoms nor liberties have been lost that I know of. I do today what I did fifty years ago.

    They are all very closely related. Fascism, socialism, Marxism, statism are all strains of the same ill. They are all tools of the authoritarian tyrant.
