    Don't stop there. Lets look at Congress.
    Madam Speaker, requesting a special place to fly to and fro, charging for every bottle of water, all expenses paid, courtesy of the American tax payers.
    Brown being flown to OH, and back to DC, just to vote for the HC bill, all to rush what had to be forced onto the American people, come hell or high water.
    What salary do our esteemed members of Congress receive, month after month, regardless of their private income, and what are their benefits...HC and pension especially?
    How much do we spend, election after election, for all the district offices soooo desperately needing redecorating?
    DOn't stop at the Maverick, although justified, but please lets look at all of them. None of them are hurting for anything, most don't even pump their own gas. Not sure how long they have to wait to have a procedure approved, but if won't be as long as it will take for one of ours, after the new HC bill takes full effect.
    Please note, I said ALL, not just D, or R, or I or L...

    So have another round of beers with Bush while we raise the FICA cap to fix this mess.
    I still say I sam glad you admit SS is broke and relies on borrowed money to pay seniors, thank you learn to take a compliment.

    That would make a pretty good thread have a go at it.

    I need the ability to like more than once. More like 3-4 times. PLUS a special like for the dog.

    You make it sound like being robbed is some kind of failing on the part of SS. Do you always blame the victim in a crime, or just with SS?

    We have a representative government. The voters had a chance to elect a candidate in 2000 that proposed locking the SS funds. We chose the guy we would rather have a beer with, remember?

    That was probably the one thing algore said that I agreed with, unfortunately he was a pathological liar so just because he said it didn't mean I believed he would do it. Where is crazy Al lately anyway? He's been kinda quiet since he got busted for beating up hookers and Tipper dumped his fat ass.
