    He's ten times the poser you are....you've never made a convincing argument (and you stop with the petty left wing talking points) with regards to health care.

    The left has totally screwed us with Obamacare.

    Why can't Wisconsin run it's own system ? It's bigger than Norway.

    Once again...stupid.....

    Corporate greed causes corporations to influence government who can enforce laws and regulations to the benefit of the corporation....

    Or are you saying that insurance companies exists without government support ? Do you actually believe that ?

    And Billy can watch as that one flys out of the park.

    Your post is a HOME RUN.

    Of course little Billy can't comprehend anything that complex.

    Agreed.

    Yet, we have millions of Americans who think government regulations are good. It is a myth that big government loves to promote (like so many myths about big government)...and too many uninformed Americans can't see through it.

    Today, many government regulations are purposely designed to enrich the big corporate donor class to the two criminal political parties (Obamacare is at the top of the list). It is a racket the Mafia can only dream of.

    And let's talk Social Security.

    I've paid less into my 401K and expect to draw more on it than I will from Social Security. And when I die, I will pass the principle along to my kids.

    NOT that I don't understand why Social Security got started (and it is totally understandable).

    But like so many things....it's totally screwed up.

    I think we should require people to save (and some of that should be in relatively safe investments).

    But OMG....what a screw up this has become.

    And lot's of Americans purposely didn't save a dime....becuase they plan on it.....even thought it has always said it was NEVER intended to be the primary means for retirement.

    We should shoot Robert Ball now.

    And the people are told that the political system is good, and the way they vote is good too. Just so he rich can control them more easily.

    SS sends a pamphlet to your home every couple of years with your (and your employers) history of SS contributions. Take that list to a reputable investment agency and ask what you might be worth today if all that money had been placed in a private conservative investment all those years. You'll probably have a heart attack when you learn what you would be worth today and what you'd be worth at the time of retirement.

    Republicans don't. The Constitution does.
