No, all the ultra rich republicans weren't going bonkers, there's not enough of them to matter. I'm in a similar condition as you but I realize both programs are going broke soon, something must be done. Obama and the dems have shown their plan is to do nothing and let them run out of money. I also am intelligent enough to know we've seen this play before, at present in places like Greece, Spain and Portugal. You cannot have close to 50% of the population contributing nothing, it is just not sustainable. You also cannot have millions of uneducated mexicans clogging up the system and receiving funds illegally. Apparently it will take a complete failure of our economic system to get it thru the thick heads of the receivers.<quoted text>
I don't have an EBT card or a so called "Obamaphone". What I do have though, is Social Security and in another year, Medicare. 2 things that Romney wasn't going to guarantee if he had it his way. Of course, in this day and age, perhaps nothing is a 100% guarantee on anything, but I feel I picked the lesser of 2 evils. All of the ultra rich Republicans are going bonkers about having to pay a little more, yet they never gave a hoot about the middle class or poor, and that will never change. Poor losers they are.
Then they'll blame it on the republicans, likely Bush.
If liberals are so compassionate, I suggest they dig deep into their own pocketbooks.
