so after littering your post with excuses for Reagan, you would deny anyone else to forward excuses....... ROFLMAO

Typical selfish conservative mumble jumble.

Bottom line, the Republicans were the majority in congress for 12 years prior to 2007 and sat by and did nothing to reinforce Social Security or Medicare knowing one the horizon the Baby Boomers would be leaving the work force in record numbers.

They never intended to do much to save either program. The Republicans had always sworn since 68 to dismantle both programs.

<quoted text> Reagan passed those things off with a Democratic congress who fault him tooth and nail. He was promised cuts and was lied to as usual. On top of that he had false Repubs like Bush senior and the neo con boys who caved him down as he weakened from age. When it comes to your budget crap talk, just pays us and there will be no problem. We want full medical no matter how much it costs and we want big increases in social security payments for all with true inflation increases. You are getting believers now, so shut up and give us our due. If you think you had a reduced amount of people who believed before then you should be happy now. And on a great note, Obama receive over 60% of the 20 to 30 year old vote. They will have no problem contributing to the great experiment. May gaia bless you and yours. Don't come back with an excuse. Because that is what you all are about.

More Republican Arithmetic. Using your calculations would make the present debt $20 Trillion.

I’m not worried… I am looking forward to the battles to come. I remember how the right threw everything they had at OBAMACARE, even a bunch of unpatriotic tea-baggers marching on Congress, and we still won. President Obama got what he wanted. Susan Rice will be nominated… and she will be confirmed; Obama will get taxes raised on the rich and he will get at least 3 more justices added to the Supreme Court.
Obama always wins; 2008 and 2012 proves it, LOL!
