    That's right. Those who concentrate on getting money from the rich, rather than looking after themselves, will never succeed. Welfare tends to make people dishonest. Bad laws make bad people. (Or something like that!)

    There are lots of people with their hand out. The poor are definitely not the only ones gobbling at the trough. Seniors, corporations, teachers, bankers, students,....the list of those who want thier entitlements is rather long.

    Maybe, maybe not. Personally, I believe in technology and creative solutions. We'll find a way to care for all those old people...probably by relaxing some rules and using technology to provide lower cost medical treatments.

    Context. Revenue is still below what it was pre-recession. Also your chart makes no sense. The US govt is not going to take in 5 trillion in revenue anytime soon. The Treasury only shows 2.4 trillion in taxes as of the end of the fiscal year. You might want to check your source.

    Mr. Bush (41) who was not a conservative used this as a mask for his statism. It was a smokescreen. Nothing more, in my opinion.

    Oh yes, I agree. That's how politicians win our votes and we happily vote for those who promise us the most. Despite what many people think, it's not the politicians who are stupid.

    I wouldn't trust the FDA to push forward with some life saving cures. There a paragraph in here with some stats.American Banana Republic | National Review Online
