    Correction, it is exactly what the foundation is of the Constitution, as has been determined by the rule of law in this great country for the last 80 years under both parties.

    Try reading the intent of the Constitution someday, It is entitled The Preamble to the Constituion.

    That's just a lie promoted by yet another Obama sycophant with no evidence that is true. But you sheep in the Progressive movement lap it up like good little drones.

    Get outta here with that ****!

    SS was so strong, it helped fund the wars you are so fond of. The Republicans decided to do that so we could give rich people 30 years of huge cuts in taxes rather than paying for the wars through taxes as they used to do.

    Time for the rich people to pay back to SS what they robbed from it. The fact that we have refused to upgrade our health care system to first world status is why Medicare is in trouble. We have the highest cost health care system in the world. That won't be fixed in any other way than a single payer system.

    Or, you can continue to think of our fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers as socialists for requiring that the rich pay their fair share if you think that helps make your case.

    You obviously have no idea where to find information regarding the Constitutions intent. If you think the preamble is the extent of it, we couldn't even begin to have a real conversation on the matter.

    Obviously not, if you do not believe in the rule of law in this country.

    As the context of my post indicated, I was talking about the 8o years of rule of law in this great country under both parties that have agreed that both SS and M/M are Constituional given the intent of the founders as described in the Preamble to the Constitution.

    I do wish comprehension was high on the list of people here. Any idiot can misrepresent a single line.

    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.

    barack the slasher hussein's HEALTH CZAR, dr donald berwick:

    "any health care funding plan this is just, equitable, civilized and humane must, must redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and less fortunate, excellent health care is by definition redistributional"

    what a weirdo

    hardly a good choice for CZAR

    oh well, interpret away

    robbed?

    at 1176 a month?

    LOL!

    social security was sold to 3 generations as insurance, not welfare

    That won't be fixed in any other way than a single payer system.
    but single payer, according to the bbc two weeks ago, is "cruel and devastating"

    BBC News - Surgeons raise alarm over waiting

    it appears these lovers of all humanity don't really like people very much, after all

    oh well

    party on, petrograd

    Correct, and that is what it remains today. All the funding came from the insured and no one has effort been denied their premium, in good times and bad even with the banks failing!
