  •  Medicare is not an entitlement (7+ / 0-)

    It's a medical insurance policy that I paid into faithfully beginning with my first part-time job as a teen-ager. I'm 65, and now I expect medicare to keep its promise. And Social Security is not an entitlement, it's an annuity that I purchased and paid into it faithfully for all those years. What the robber baron criminals don't like about is that these programs are gov run, rather than being privitized for their profit. The truth is that they cannot fairly compete against gov socialized programs. Profit, profit, profit is one of only 2 things they care about. The other is MAXIMIZED profits.

    the Republican brand is totally bankrupt.
