    Hey, I think he's more than proven his point.

    Displaying your prices will cause health care costs to drop 50% because China.

    I mean, what more empirical evidence could you NEED?

    You have only one place to start and that's the repeal of the ACA. You better give Ryan a call because what he's selling nobody will buy.

    did you notice that in Red China prices were so high that 60 million human souls slowly starved to death because they could not afford anything? Is your point that socialism really works better - that Cuba and Venezuela do better than Florida??

    See there? You don't even know that Mao did that on purpose. How do you ever expect to "win" any engagement when you keep spouting shit you know nothing about? Unfortunately for you I am a Conservative who not only knows what he talking about but also knows how to back it up.

    I am eighty years old. For the past fifteen years the Social Security Administration has been depositing a cozy sum of money into my bank account every month without fail. I've never did the math but I'm quite sure I've collected at least two or three times as much as I'd contributed. And with my genetic DNA profile as an indicator I expect the same happy returns for the next ten or more years. That is unless the vicious right-wing Conservatives in government have their way and sabotage one of the most productive programs in the history of governments.

    Actually it's the drug war that is "impoverishing" Americans -- along with outragerously wasteful military expenditures .

    Medicare is an admirable government program. (Ask your grandparents -- and maybe your parents, too). If the outlay is excessive, which is something competent government administrators can correct if they care to make the effort.

    On this we agree. But again, it is a problem which can be solved. Trump has the ability to do something about it, so let's see if he applies the Conservative hit squads he's assembled to do something about it -- or if he's just as full of shit and as crooked as most Conservative politicians have proven to be.

    This is just as true for some Liberal elements as it is for some Conservative elements. Actually it is counterproductive to identify oneself with either partisan posture. The sensible position to hold is somewhere in the middle but leaning toward the common citizens' best interests -- rather than those of the elite class.

    You're quite right. But he does serve as a good drum to pound on for the benefit of those with the good sense to appreciate the facts. So let him rave and cut him off at the knees --as you've so effectively done in this example.

    totally stupid and 100% liberal of course. If you've never done the math you don't the answer...obviously!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In fact, an average American could retire with an estate of $1.4 million, live on the interest, and let their kids inherit $1.4 million. But, with SS stealing 15% of your lifetime income all you get is dog food money until you die, and no estate, if you live long enough to collect a penny.Republican capitalism made us rich and then liberals stole the money and wasted it.

    The effect you've cited (the dilemma of the 1%) is the result of wealth hoarding by the 99%, not Social Security.
