    the teabaggers are after mom and pop , they are going after cuts in social security ,

    not worried , I'm sure kids will take their aging parents into their homes , make you the difference in what was cut,

    it will bring families together , and get along fine .

    No worries. Your Democrat Senate will stop them! If not them then Obama will veto all that noise just like he did with the Patriot Act.

    You would have to have actually served in the military.

    I smell socks.

    Great. Can't wait to use the old, "I make the rules in this house and when you live under my roof, you will follow them."

    I'm looking forward to it.

    I guess that's better than what you usually smell.

    Liberals don't serve and honorably retire from the US Armed Forces?

    Both the dems and repubs already spent our social security, and next their going after your 401k, they are just trying to blame each other for it. The money's already spent and now the bill's coming due. The money is gone, adjustments must be made in benefits, thank your politicians and deal with it.

    Social Security needs a little math adjustment. Start bumping the retirement age up a little bit since life expectancy has bumped up a little bit.

    Obviously if everyone starting living to 100 we would need to adjust retirement up. Does anyone disagree it is time now? I honestly do not know what is the correct bump.

    Does anyone disagree?

    Such an honest and forthright OP... Very original and fact-based, well sourced and not a hint at all of false demagoguery or alarmist, dishonest nonsense. Very refreshing!
