    Any way:

    Without Social Security benefits, more than 40 percent of Americans aged 65 and older would have incomes below the federal poverty line, all else being equal. With Social Security benefits, less than one-tenth of the elderly do. (See figure below.) The program lifts 14 million elderly Americans out of poverty.[18]
    Almost 90 percent of people aged 65 or older receive some income from Social Security.[19] Those not receiving Social Security mostly comprise recent immigrants, state and local government retirees (and federal retirees hired before 1984) who are covered by separate retirement systems, people under age 66 with significant earnings, and people who are so seriously disabled that they never worked and also have never married.[20]

    Cute, but immaterial ... you asked a specific question ... I answered it.

    Do you want to discuss the propriety of Social Security now?

    What liberalism does is create dependence that you can never get out of. SS is and will always be a ponzi scheme but too many are dependent on it. It is a raw deal for families and it is broke because the money was stolen, I mean borrowed. Medicare is also broke but as long as the govt. prints money payments will be made. You liberals have quite a racket going
    Sure you did. But if you couldn't pay him, you'd have lost him as well.

    You did. But I'm showing the blog you posted was inaccurate.

    Dependence is a liberal life line that keeps politicians in power. Are you one of those people? Your passion for ACA is quite telling.

    Better for whom? How many of those 7.1 million were uninsured. Tell people who had their insurance cancelled because of ACA and then saw their premiums and deductibles go up that they are better off

    We'll learn more. Be patient. I try not to guess and look the fool. I'll wait and see what we learn.

    Could be I am learning from you, now tell us all how ACA affects you and your family and why such passion for the law? How does the uninsured in TX affect you and your family or the people of Iowa?

    We have learned quite a bit, in this age of modern technology and millions spent on the website that this Administration is totally incompetent and unable or probably more like it unwilling to give the people the information on who those 7.1 million people are. They have no problem touting any perceived success while burying anything that doesn't generate positive results for this President. This one doesn't pass the smell test except to Obama supporters who will defend this President's incompetence at the expense of their own credibility which apparently means nothing.
