    The simple truth that we all avoid is that what the politicians do in DC is our fault. We keep electing the same dirtbags because...They are for Abortion or they are for Gay marriage or they are Christians or they are Black or they are saving the planet or they are for or they are for Corporate Welfare and tax cuts for the Rich. etc etc etc....WE are all the special interests that motivate them to do what they do to get re elected....its OUR fault. Many people will vote for the same person knowing they are dirtbags just because they are for the one thing that THEY WANT...were all guilty of it....Our govt is our fault

    If you mean social security, the payout is based on contributions, I wouldn't call it charitable.

    I vote we strip out every corporate subsidy, every corporate give - away, every corporate loophole, every single piece of corporate welfare, and then we raise our corporate tax rate to match Canada's.

    no. just an exceedingly poor investment that people are forced to make.

    I was thinking mostly "minors" with an emphasis on "children" here.
