    More cryptic insulting by conservative, no problem as he would say..

    I'm sorry, Nimby, but YOU of all people complaining about being insulted is laughably hypocritical.

    Could you please present the figures which would establish that this would be possible without threatening the overall sustainability of the program for those who do not opt out?

    2001-32o billion
    2002-350 billion
    2003-360 billion
    2004-530 billion
    2005-760 billion
    2006-870 billion
    2007-630 billion

    2008-240 billion


    Notice anything about the time the GOP policies ran the Congress and the country? Has the light bulb gone off yet as it relates to Congressional responsibility and results?

    Your opinion noted. How can someone with your supposed intelligence continue to support the incompetent in the WH right now? Have those shovels arrived yet for those shovel ready jobs?

    Nope. I don't have such figures.

    But I'd be open to listening to the bean counters' suggestions on how to gradually eliminate the system.

    You hired Obama to fix the economy for us, how has that worked out for you and cite the specific results generated? He said he had the answers, did he?

    False. Economic growth is at 2-/2 percent.

    I didn't hire him to fix the economy, I voted for him for President of the United States. My stock market investments are worth much more now than when he first became president.
