Whom is lacking access to anything in this country? Who are these people?raving about deficit spending to people whose main concern is that they lack access to support services
And what specific "popular government programs" are republicans railing against. If you are talking about say Medicare which has a 33 Trillion dollar unfunded liability then I would say yes, something has to be done, but that in no way is railing against the program, or wanting to take it away from those that have it now. That is wanting to address it and fix it.and railing against highly popular government programs to people who've become increasingly aware of their importance in the bad economy.
Then Sir I would pose that you are either just NOT paying attention to the news out there, or you are willingly ignoring the news. I give you Geo. Soros.I make no specific predictions, but their election strategy is better suited to make marginal gains against a weakened opponent than to sweep anything.
Yet you are tilting at windmills here...How can that be?Mr. Soros, a champion of liberal causes, has been directing his money to groups that work on health care and the environment, rather than electoral politics. Asked if the prospect of Republican control of one or both houses of Congress concerned him, he said: “It does, because I think they are pushing the wrong policies, but I’m not in a position to stop it. I don’t believe in standing in the way of an avalanche.”

you're deprived because you have a toothache?If you want examples of deprivation, I have a toothache and can't do anything about it because my dental coverage won't cover what needs to be done. The tooth is rotting in my mouth, and they can't do a simple extraction because it's fractured and would shatter.
i'm sorry about your tooth, sincerely, it sounds very painful, i hope you get some relief soon
yes, indeed, dentisty can be very expensiveAccording to the dentist's quote, I would have to pay over $3,000 to get this dealt with - something I can't do even with a payment plan because of bad credit due to bankruptcy from medical bills.
go onI am denied necessary care because my employer doesn't consider me valuable enough
for someone who is unaware of the unfunded liabilities facing not only medicare and medicaid but also social security as well (also public pensions, city, state and federal), you certainly seem to have some rather strong opinions about how the world worksI have no knowledge of whether that figure is accurate or not.
