    It's not like our candidate needs to be American. Nobody cares about that stuff. We could hire us a nice Aussie. Or a Brit. Isn't there a country north of us somewhere?

    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!

    why is social security in such dire need of FIX

    a program, especially one of such staggering scale, which can't keep its fundamental promises is a failure

    SS is not an investment program. It is a modest insurance program for the premium payer and his dependents. It was intistuted based on the intent of the Constitution to promote the welfare of We the People. It is what keeps our elderly from poverty.

    LOL!

    you can say that again

    a half million dollars in and next to nothing out is the biggest boondoggle this side of red china

    if social security is such a success why is it (again) in such dire need of fixing

    All SS payments have always been made! Since tax cuts to the rich caused funding to be robbed from the SS fund, the reverse is the solution to its problems.

    who's trump?

    meanwhile, if something isn't done imminently to fundamentally restructure social security, medicare and medicaid, then they will simply not be there in their present form for the next generation

    ie, it's that bad

    where's the slasher, in hollywood?

    tell him to call harry, put that plan in action

    Trump is who this thread is about. Who is your choice for president if not for the most popular by the GOP voters?

    that's nice

    meanwhile, every two weeks that go by cost us on the order of another hundred billion we don't have

    service on the debt, mere interest alone, is fast approaching a full trillion per year

    our big 3 federal programs are looking like the soviet union in 1988

    and obama's raising money in hollywood while lowering himself to cheap politics of envy and division---hardly presidential

    all he really has to do is PICK UP THE PHONE

    harry's waiting, slash

    hurry
