It's a pretty good indication that the takers now outnumber the makers. How long will it last?

I am not sure which orifice you pulled that idea from. If wingnuts think a 2 month embryo is a child why donít they buy a casket and hold a funeral for a miscarriage?

<quoted text>Progressive you mean, socialistic medicine, more entitlement programs, Obamacare, taking from the rich to support those that don't want to work, but live on our hard earned money. Let me tell you something. My husband is retired. Our health insurance costs almost $20,000 a year. I never reach my deductible my husband does because of serious health issues. Obamacare bull crap. I'll never have it. My husband and I paid out social security by mid year for years. We earned those benefits and we paid our taxes since we were in our late teens. I'll never be an Obamacare user. What's going to happen is Drs. are going to refuse to take any health care plans because of the administration costs, that will send the poor to the emergency rooms for care costing the government 5 times what it would otherwise. Those of us that keep our private coverage will pay out of pocket and file with our private insurances. Some of us don't want handouts. We have paid our way all our lives and will continue to do so till the day we die because we scrimped and saved and paid into our 401k plans for our entire lives. We don't need Obamacare. We can pay our own way, thank you very much.
Hope your mental coverage is paid up, you give us reason to believe it will be needed soon.

So you don't mind having the most expensive health care system in the world? When the chunk of the GDP that healthcare costs eats jumps from 18% to 25% you will be singing a different tune. Israel, Switzerland, Taiwan, Japan, Germany .... the list goes on an on of countries whose healthcare expenditures are only in the single digits yet here we are at 18%.

Abortions have always been available in this country to the well-off and connected. The question is whether the poor will continue to have the same access. In some states they do not.

DIY abortions are on the rise in the USA. Before the de-criminalization of abortion, death by complications from abortion was the #3 cause of women deaths. Now it isn't even in the top 100.

Anyone read "Freakanomics?" These authors were the darlings of the Bush administration for a short time until it was revealed that they proved that the rapid decrease in crime in large American cities was due to the de-criminalization of abortion. In other words, a whole generation of unwanted children who would have turned into criminals were never born.

Yes, T Roosevelt was a true Progressive who shaped the country we live in today. He took on the elites and won and so leveled the playing field for generations. The current GOP is regressive.

Well, you referred to soldiers as baby killers, so logically you don't like baby killers. Ohhhh, you pick and choose WHICH baby killers you don't like.(Typical agenda jockying.)
BTW, The ONLY orifice I know of is YOU.(... orifice of the nether regions, that is.)

And before you start your ridiculous under rock dwelling insanity, I am not pro abortion, but I AM pro choice.

How do you KNOW those children would have turned into criminals? You must have magical powers. I'm impressed.

Wonder why you liberals can't express yourselves without name calling? That's one thing a person can count on. When someone doesn't agree with a leftie, the name calling starts. Why don't you register with Topix and then you MIGHT have at least a little cred. Relax. You are going to get everything you voted for. I can't wait!!!

I don't know. Didn't you notice I referenced the work of noted authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, authors of Freakonomics.

The relationship between abortion and crime is interesting and probably beyond the bumper sticker mentality found here but if you are interested in reading more:

whoever deserves credit or blame for this,as part of the reason for ours being so high is because of illegal immigrants.last nite on the news i saw where middle class chinese are now beginning to take vacations here when their expecting a child.as you know,the children born here will be u.s. citizens and qualify for all sorts of health and other benifits.whereas,china has the one-child policy concerning this.lucky us,huh.

No Jeb, illegal immigrants are not to be blamed for 18% of our GDP being eaten up by healthcare costs.

While other countries were building high speed rail and public healthcare systems for its citizens the USA was building an empire and now we are paying the price.

did not mean to imply they were the blame-only a contributing factor.and the chinese that i spoke of were not even illegals,they are here on legal visas.but in the end results,i still believe american taxpayers will end up footing the bill for both(or at least part of it).
