    I thought this was about healthcare, not SS.

    What benefit? There is no 2000 pages of benefit. Most of the benefits go to the power given HHS

    Thanks to Obamacare state may have to drop millions from medicaid

    Typical Rep ploy, cherry picking situations to prove your point, completely ignoring the other side.

    For every granmma who died too soon, there are thousand who lived to get their SS.


    As for myself, I've been getting SS checks every month for twenty years... Ten times more than I put in from 1942 to 1991... and growing every month.

    a person making 70K will have to receive soc sec benefits for more than 40 years just to get back his or her principal investment

    and if you die a month too soon...

    did anyone ever explain to you that SS was never meant to be your investment vehicle? you pay a SS TAX.......as does your employer.

    yup, a half mil in, over the course of a typical worker's career

    and if she dies a week too soon...

    even if she doesn't, she's gonna have to cash an awful lot of soc sec checks to get back even HALF of what she paid in

    soc sec---biggest boondoggle this side of red china

    a govt program---especially one of this magnitude---in need of such massive FIX is a FAILURE

    raise the retirement age, decrease benefits, increase contributions, higher income cap...

    the prescription for reform must include ALL the poison pills

    why can't soc sec keep its promises?

    I'm against the health care reforms because they were half-assed and just gave the insurance companies - the ones who are the reason why health care in the U.S. is more expensive than anywhere in the west - more power and money.

    It's sad to see though that most people are against it just because it's a) by Obama, b) public health care and that's socialist, USSR, commie pinkos invading our nation, or c) 'we have a right to be gouged if we want by insurance companies!' disguised as personal responsibility garbage.

    half a T cuts to medicare

    Capitol Briefing - Senate votes to keep Medicare cuts

    er costs increase:

    ER visits, costs in Mass. climb - The Boston Globe

    doctors refuse new medicare patients:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/02/bu.../02health.html

    the doc fix passes, another quarter tril unaccounted for:

    Senate passes 1-year doc fix - The Hill's Healthwatch

    another quarter T double counted:

    Budget Office Rebuts Democratic Claims on Medicare (Update1) - Bloomberg

    our already broken backed states are burdened with 200 billion in the form of brand new medicaid enrollees

    Governors balk over what healthcare bill will cost states - The Boston Globe

    more than three quarters of a T in new taxes

    Yes, I know you would. However, that has little to do with anything I can think of.

    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.
