Democrats can't even bring themselves to say the word "reform" when it comes to SS and Medicaid.
It might cost them votes.
But they all know neither program is sustainable.
It's just another can that's dented all to hell from being kicked it down the road to buy more time to blame Republicans.
Yeah Carol, we all know what the GOP means by "reform". They want to cut benefits, raise the retirement age and some of the more extreme right wingers want to privatize it and turn it over to Wall Street. Here's a better solution. Raise or even eliminate the income cap on SS wages. Then we could lower the retirement age and make more jobs available to younger workers.
What about Medicaid Carol? Do you think that if companies like Walmart and McDonalds actually provided their workers with adequate health insurance and a living wage the need for social safety net programs would down? We're paying for some of these companies profits by providing their employees the means to survive like Medicaid and SNAP because the bottom line is all people like the Walton family cares about.

You know that it s a racial slur to call a black man "boy".
You also know there are other terms other than "boy" to describe a young male.
The idea you insist on calling the President "boy" instead of the other terms, proves you are a racist f*ck.
Your sad excuse fools no one.
But it's ok to call a white man "whiteboy". Right?

LOL!!!!!!!!! You dumbass.

You're full of crap as usual Carol. It's your side that have for years used legislation to force your own narrow views on the country as a whole. You've used laws to treat working taxpaying citizens as second class, denying the equal protection under the law because of their sexual orientation. That's bullying. I don't really care what your personal beliefs are but you don't have the right to force them on other people. We are a progressive nation Carol, the Founding Fathers were progressives and the Constitution is a progressive document. As Theodore Roosevelt said in his speech "The New Nationalism" in Osawatomie, Kansas on August31, 1910;
"A great democracy must be progressive or it will soon cease to be a democracy."
Yet liberals don't mind forcing their personal beliefs on everyone.

Carter should have told the Iranians to release the hostages immediately or face incineration...
Why do I think that perhaps maybe, all that was a bit before your "comprehension time"?

Bottom line-

Every single hostage of the 52, was released.

ILLegal immigration is a severe problem these days (thanks to demoncratic rum running ineptitudes of "redo'ing" quota and accountability policies that were in place pre-1965--tromping them in favor of shoving free for all open screen door polices down the throat of America thereafter.
Free-for-all amnesty is not the answer.

U.S. borders continue to be breached, as well as any remaining existing immgigration RULES/LAWS etc, daily now-WORSE than ever before.

Think you have it backwards. Obamacare was born under a strictly partisan controlled Congress and a liberal president. Conservatives were all but told to get out of the way.
As someone once said, "Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely."
Democrats had absolute power when Republicans were not considered relevant.
Same with the shutdown. It could have been avoided had the same Democrats who are now asking for a delay had acquiesced to Republicans who asked for the same thing when they had the chance.
Obama went along with the delay after he blamed Republicans for the shutdown.
Wrong again Carol! The Democrats are asking for an extension of the enrollment period while the GOP wanted to delay the whole thing.

"Quietly"? Are you kidding me? All they do is tout "their" charity work for "stage show" accolades.....always ignoring the FACT that it is funded by the Federal Government.
"Funding increases for Catholic organizations in recent years include the following:
An increase from $12.45 million (2008) to $57.89 million (2011) in USDA food assistance to Catholic Relief Services (CRS)
An increase from just over $440 million (2008) to more than $554 million (2010) to Catholic Charities USA
Increases in Dept. of Labor grants to Catholic organizations such as Catholic Charities of Kansas for ex-offender reintegration and other programs from $300,000 (2009) to more than $5 million (2011)
An increase of HHS funding for Catholic Medical Mission Board global health activities from $500,000 (2008) to $7 million (2011)."

It might have helped if 1 or 2 Republicans had been on board passing health care legislation affecting us all.
You keep forgetting Carol that the Republicans took a blood oath no to go along with anything that came out of the Obama White House. The fact that there were no Republican votes is totally irrelevant.

Why?

That isn't any of the governments business either-other than to make sure the monetary system that MANY people have worked and contributed to over years, honestly and ethically, runs smoothly, FOR them, not Against them.

Anything else-aint NONE of the governments business.(except for maybe the FRAUDS and abusers of it--then okay...those types deserve to be harrasssed and corrected.)

Insurance companies know the marketplace has changed & they can no longer get huge premiums from individual buyers. Thank you the ACA.
You said the market for individual insurance was no longer there & people had to buy in the exchanges.
This was not true.
You can buy these policies from the insurance companies.
Galt know very little about how the insurance industry operates. Either Galt always got insurance through his employer & through the government all his life.
So now we have a nation of broke back insiurance companies on top of an even more UNFUNDED, already broke back givverment.

I was pointing out the age factor.
What do you think it costs for insurance? Again, you have no clue as to the health insurance marketplace now or in the past.
Therein lies the REAL issues with "free market" aspects of it all.

The "free market" does not allow for wage scale adjustments, thus excluding those UNable to afford it-thus creating the small gap.

That is where the government COULD actually help the UNinsured desiring to be insured, in obtaining some.

IF it could pull it's heads out of it's own megalomanical arses of communist take over DYSFUNCTIONALITY and delusion anyway.

" OMG OMg OMG We need a Budget OMG OMG OMG"

Bush had budgets. Yet he still doubled the debt, fomented the worst recession in 80 years, allowed housing to collapse & a near financial meltdown to happen.

You people are dumber than sh*t thinking budgets are the answer.

We had a balanced Budget. What happened? Bush & the Republicans decided to take us off that path.

If you don;t like debt, quit electing Republicans you stupid SOB

As for race, quit defending those posting racial slurs. Yep, blame me for identifying those racist f*cks as being a race baiter instead of telling your buddies to quit posting racial slurs.

Dumbass..

The "free market" determines product & pricing.

How these policies are funded is not relevant.
