I do have a retirement account that my employer started for us nearly 20 years ago and it's doing quite well. He contributes 10% of our gross and we have the option to contribute up to 6% of our own money.<quoted text>

Healthcare? How does one pay for something they simply cannot afford? With all this talk about Commie Care, nobody has been able to explain that to me yet. I would like a four wheel drive pickup truck with a snow plow on front, but even that's cheaper than a healthcare plan per month. You can't buy something you can't afford unless you go into severe debt. Is that the Democrat solution to our healthcare problem? With friends like that, who needs enemies?
