    Because Repubs think its okay when they use it or recieve it..For example a Military pension or healthcare at the expense of Joe tax payer is justified in their minds.

    Once again I was impressed with his oratory skills.

    I wonder if he actually believes his own bald faced lies with the passion with which they are delivered.
    Thank you

    Medicare/Medicaid is for the disabled, and the elderly, and other services the government provides to us.


    I am confused at your answer Medicare is government ran health care, and people sign up for, so why would they not want government ran health care.

    You are a perfect example of what wasted taxdollars fund. I would have thought someone who grew up in Iowa would understand personal responsibility. Who paid for that 8000 tax credit for you to buy a home?

    Some people haven't a clue as to where money for govt. jobs come from.

    People sign up for it because they paid for it. Govt. extracts it from your paycheck so when you get to age 65 just like with SS you deserve to get your money back.

    You do know people that are under 65 get it too? I bolded the part you missed.


    From the site
    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) administers Medicare, the nation's largest health insurance program, which covers nearly 40 million Americans. Medicare is a Health Insurance Program for people age 65 or older, some disabled people under age 65, and people of all ages with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure treated with dialysis or a transplant).

    Yep, that too, but you still don't get it. Workers are forced to pay for Medicare just like SS so when they are entitled to it they have every right to take it. That doesn't mean they support govt. run healthcare.

    If you are on disability and looking for a job, call "your" President for isn't that what you voted for? A President to save you from yourself?
    Making fun of someone on disability. That is gross.
