    Ten years before the worst doomsayers predicted, Social Security has become a net drag on the budget...and will continue to grow our near-catastrophic national debt.

    No! We need more choking social programs that everyone has a "right" to.

    Oh wait, we just passed Health Care! That ought to just about kill everyone of us! (Financially if not literally).

    Don't worry! Obama is going to "bend the cost curve on health care". Then we can use those savings to save Social Security! What we really need is another Stimulus!!!! Let's just Tax the rich!! Get some skin in the game!! To each according to his needs....

    PS - I have some nice swamp land in Florida for sale too, it's in the path of development......:rolleyes:

    Let's see, (thinking), okay, what's new, the country itself is apparently broke too, I bet the 'presses' are working overtime to print those 'Grants' and maybe they are contemplating making a new denomination available to the public, a $10,000 Bill, so we can shop at our favorite grocery store in the near future. :tongue:

    Will Obama plug the hole in the Social Security budget the same way he's plugged the BP Leak?

    Allowing the illegals that want to become tax paying citizens to do just that would easily fix this problem.
