    ... so much because they might have to start paying what we peons have been paying all along..., and that means the oil and mercenary and military-industrial complex corporations will have to help pay back the loans taken from Social Security to run their illegal and unconstitutional wars from which only they profited.

    Too, they have to let some Soc Sec funds stay there for retired and disabled people because the uber-rich own the corporations that sell insurance, medical and pharmaceutical products to us poor old and/or disabled saps who pay through the nose (by law with the new medical "insurance" program) for the crap insurance (and services and testing that's WAY over-priced) they're selling instead of letting us buy into Medicare - low overhead, not-for-profit, single-payer insurance program maintained by the government which would cost less to manage, but the infrastructure is in place, and to keep it running efficiently it would involve hiring new employees right here in America to take care of the paperwork to add the rest of the population to Medicare..., and the economic impact of new payroll money on both tax revenue and on buying power would have an instantaneous impact on the economy, and that would be 'bad' for those who wanted Obama to be a one-term president.

    Otherwise, if it didn't impact their income, they wouldn't give a rat's ass.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
