    No one is telling anyone how to live their lives. Lord the hyperbole!!!!

    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.

    Suppose to? Where do you get this supposed cost. What something costs is what you throw on it. As the population ages, more need care. That relates to cost. As we poorly plan for this, and have too many using care who can't pay, costs go up. This is called problem solving. As I've tried to show you, this is not a business and these programs do an excellent job overall. Seniors are far better off today. That's not in doubt in any way.

    Only in that I'll pay them. How many buy will determine where I go next. Not taxes.

    Projections are what they were supposed to cost.

    I suggest you learn how to do projections when forming your LLC

    Yes, as the population ages it needs more medical care thus the reason UHC continues to rise in costs. Think you are going to get the younger healthier people to enroll to pay for those increased costs? Again, waiting for why you cannot sell UHC in your own state?

    How do you know seniors are far better off today since there is no alternative to Medicare. that is the liberal way, compare the current program to nothing and never give people an alternative.

    Projects are a projection based on expectations. If expectations change, so do projections.

    And I know because it is measurable. They have better care, live longer, and don't suffer from the poverty they did before these programs.

    Have no fear. I adapt rather rapidly. But then again, I don't claim to know everything. You do.

    Hate to break it to you, Boo, but regardless of the care you get you are going to die. You believe what you want to believe and when reality sinks in you still won't admit it. There is nothing the Federal Govt. can do with social programs that the states and local communities can't do better. You cannot sell your state on UHC therefore you want to have the Federa. Govt. force it on all of us. That is the most selfish kind of liberalism. Please stop trying to convince people that you really care because I have seen no evidence of that.

    I replied to your post - I didn't feel the need to seek out any others. I'm very glad it doesn't apply to what you posted to which I replied, but that doesn't mean it doesn't work for many other leftists around here that routinely note "Bush" did it.
    ....Bush got congress to authorize force in Afghanistan and Iraq; ofailure hasn't gotten such approval and probably won't - but then neither did BillyJeffClinton. I guess that's another "left" thing?
