rickrick91 saidI hope the Repubs continue to tell the truth about the fact they want to destroy Medicare and Social Security.
Most Americans strongly disagree - and should be informed about the fact that a vote for a Repubs is a vote to destroy Medicare and Social Security.
They're not even trying to destroy it, but it should be destroyed. Anyone who opposes Paul Ryan's plan is in favor of medicare going bankrupt, including you. Democrats have no plan, and the party which takes the responsible side will of course take the heat.
The democrats are the mother who tells her children that they can charge as much as they want on her credit card, but in the end they will all be out on the street. The republicans in this case are the mother who tells her children that they must live within their means and that means not buying whatever they want. Can you guess which children are more happy with their mother? Obviously, the one who appears to love them more but actually is proving by her actions that she doesn't because if she did she would have their long-term interest in mind and that means not letting them have whatever they want.
How does it feel to be on the side of the irresponsible mother? I suppose lovely!
There you go again!
You Repubs just love to try to rewrite history!
Reagan more than tripled the National Debt.
Dubya doubled the National Debt.
Those are a couple of really "responsible" Republican "mothers"!
The Repubs are the fiscally "responsible" party????!!!!!
In a pig's eye.
Nice try, but we're talking about medicare and social security at the moment. What is the democratic plan to make it solvent? Pointing out the perceived fiscal responsibilities of others is not going to render the democratic position (and the majority of selfish greedy americans) any more fiscally responsible on this issue.
Medicare and Social Security don't need to be "made solvent".
They'll be solvent for many years.
The pressing issue we must address today is reducing the National Debt.
Your Repubs are just trying to use the debt crisis as an excuse to destroy Medicare and Social Security - against the will of the people.
Destroying Medicare and Social Security is not anything that the American people support - and it would have disasterous consequences.
What we need to do - and what President Obama and the Dems have proposed - is to reduce the National Debt with a mixture of spending cuts to reduce expenditure, and tax increases on the wealthy and closing tax loopholes to increase revenue.
THAT is the prescription for debt reduction that the American people support.
