Yeah made a good point last night. He said if Romney/Ryan got in, we'd have less than what we have now.

And I agreed. Less scandals. Less money taken out of our checks. Less confusion and costs implementing Obamacare. Less fear and uncertainty about future health care. Less concern about government becoming Big Brother. Less poverty. Less unemployment. Less power grabbing.

Hard to believe I agreed with Yeah.

Even democrats know Medicare and Social Security won't remain solvent much longer. Only republicans have come up with plans for reforms so they will still be in place for your generation.
Abolishing Medicare and Social Security is not a reform plan. Paul Ryan, in his more candid ,private moments off-the-record, have made it clear that he wants to completely wipe out FDR and the Kennedy/Johnson years of liberal, progressive reform.

"GOP faces its own divisions on budget issues
Susan Davis, USA TODAY 3:35 p.m. EDT August 1, 2013
John Boehner
WASHINGTON — Republicans in Congress stumbled this week over their party's internal divisions on fiscal issues, leaving the party struggling for direction as it prepares for a bruising fall battle with Democrats over the federal budget.
Wednesday, GOP leaders abandoned a transportation spending bill that adhered to the budget drafted by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis. It would have continued this year's governmentwide spending cuts known as the "sequester." The Ryan budget had been approved by the House in March with all but 10 House Republican votes, but Wednesday, GOP leaders were not able to muster enough votes to pass the transportation bill, the first non-defense spending bill that would have implemented the Ryan spending levels. Some Republicans joined Democrats in opposition to the bill because it did not provide enough money for government programs they consider crucial.
House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., issued a blistering critique of his colleagues after the bill was pulled. "With this action, the House has declined to proceed on the implementation of the very budget it adopted just three months ago. Thus, I believe that the House has made its choice: sequestration – and its unrealistic and ill-conceived discretionary cuts – must be brought to an end," Rogers said.
But Thursday, Senate Republicans blocked a second, more generous, version of the same bill because it would have spent more money than allowed under the sequester. They blocked the bill despite the advocacy of Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who helped write the bill and asked her GOP colleagues to support it.
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., both face divisions among the GOP rank-and-file on the best path forward in negotiations with Democrats on how to prevent a government shutdown when the funding runs out Sept. 30...."
There's a division among Republicans right now on how best to get rid of Obamacare. Some want to simply defund it cold turkey which would make Obama and the democrats very happy. They could blame republicans for shutting down the government when they are the ones who started the confusion in the first place by passing a massive piece of legislation that will affect us all as well as future generations profoundly without the majority of the people or one Republican on board.

The shutdown, however, would not defund anything but Obamacare.

Other Republicans want to outsmart the fox and let the worst happen so that, by November 2014, everyone will be feeling the pain and confusion and the Democrats will defeat themselves.

Decisions...decisions...either /or would be better than doing nothing.

The dilemma for Republicans is if they do nothing to try and defund it now and Americans start feeling the pain and confusion next year - which they most definitely will - there's a concern Republicans could be blamed for not defunding it now.

There's also the certainty they will be blamed by all Democrats loudly and persistently that they are responsible for shutting down the government for trying to prevent certain pain and confusion on the part of all Americans next year.

Again...decisions...decisions. ..how best to slay the monster and make the Democrats out to be the masters of that monster.

Just so people like you also won't have to feel the pain and confusion unleashed by the masters of that monster.

(I'm feeling so metaphoric today...)

Do you 'share' what you have with others?

Prove it?

No one ever said anything about "abolishing" anything.

You've just been programmed to believe whatever you're told to believe and convinced you can't seek the truth for yourself.

But you have the power to overcome it and break the spell the propagandists have over you.

Pretend you're in Star Wars if that helps and you're being misled by the dark side. Their power is great but the powers of "the force" is greater.

May the force be with you in your struggle to be manipulated and controlled.
