Will it happen? Never, because the motto in congress is, "Screw the little guy!"
End both wars and cut the defense budget in half.

That'll free up about $450 billion.

............

MrLiberty, they have it all worked out. The eldery on Medicare pay half by losing a lot of bennies and paying more for the little left. So this actually creates new and the most in need to become the new uninsured...

The other half is paid by those making enough by the standards Obama has set. Just a thought I just got, I wonder if the president is included in that group?

Not a bad idea but just a wish........... Can we say those on medicare, which was a loser from day one! It was set up to never pay for itself, and at the time it could handle the numbers using it, by taking funds from other places. Like S/S. Which with the baby boomers about to come running for help very soon. Will cause it to cave in. And show the representatives for what they are, crooks. Because once a full acounting is done, guess whom it will expose? And what social programs that are useless because of a complete lack of money. Yea the third rail, S/S.........

Again a great idea

It's funny how we'd rather spend $12 billion a month on someone elses country, than spend it on our own.
