    Yea basically all the cuts from Medicare, which were the "savings" to pay for the ObamaCare plan, didn't materialize because they were never meant to be serious.

    Woo hoo.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    So a bunch of New Yorkers are still looking for government handouts.

    Wake me if something changes.

    Basically what this vote shows is that old folks want the money the voted themselves from our pockets, and our children's futures be damned.

    **** the old people, they created this mess. They sat around and did nothing while these programs just become more and more unsustainable, and now they demand to get what they were promised in return for their votes.

    It's time to take the country back from the brink, the brink these "old folks" made happen.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You don't think paying for it all their lives is a good reason to expect it? How about you buy a hat from me and I just decide not to send it to you?

    We would have the money if the government didn't regard pilfering from the funding a viable way of covering expenses.

    It's not going away. It needs to be better managed, and at a lower cost, like EVERYTHING the government touches.

    If you buy a box of cereal and a gallon of milk and make yourself breakfast, it'll cost you about $6 and last you for about 5 days.

    If the government does it, it'll cost $150 and most of it will be thrown in the trash before you eat it.

    Hopefully not, since the Ryan plan has absolutely NO effect on people over the age of 55.

    Perhaps they don't want to see their children suffer in old age. Has empathy ever occured to anyone?
