You Republicans don't like Medicare or Medicaid or SocSec, either...


even nominating a vice-presidential candidate who wanted to dismantle all of it and start over.

So why, in previous years, didn't House Republicans vote to fund the government except for THOSE programs?

Go on, fellas. Do it. Pass a spending bill without funding Obamacare. Let's see what sort of gumption you really have, and how well you can stand up to the heat that will surely come.

Your president is a failure.

Own it

Because they paid into those programs specifically.

Okay, you're right, we ALL have a president who is a failure. Some of us saw the writing on the wall, some of us were duped, and someof us just have no shame in blindly following.

you do know that what Bush did, esp in 2008, really did piss off a lot of conservatives, right?

You ought to be happy if they try to do it, Rex. Would this not make you happy since they'll fail and feel the heat?

I do agree, however, that social security needs a lot of work and wholesale changes to remain intact.

Medicare is not a welfare program.

Work in the medical/pharmaceutical industries Rex, and you'll know why it's a bad idea at least in its current form.

You pay into it. Now if it was means tested, THEN it would be a welfare program.

I already said "DO IT".

I don't get any sort of government payout so I won't be hurting at all. DO IT.

Because the republican party leadership is not conservative and liberals have brainwashed millions of Americans into thinking those programs are actually good. Duh

no, we pay for those currently receiving it (or at least in a future date, prior to our receiving it)

if it wasn't a welfare program, those who "paid in" wouldn't need current taxpayers to support the program

My father is 88 years old... I'd wager he has collected at least four times more in benefits than he ever contributed to those programs, even though he paid in his entire working life. I'd also wager that's typical of plenty if not most elderly Americans. So don't try to tell me there's no element of welfare built into Medicare or Social Security.
