    And who’s on the other end of the line?

    Nothing is free. Somebody is paying for it.

    When in doubt, LIE! Make stuff up! Conservatives are an easy lot to hook in.

    The willingness of the Con Trolls to ignore reality is mind boggling. Why are Social Security and Medicare entitlements? Because the recipients have already paid for the benefit – they are ENTITLED to it. Are both programs in need of fixing? Yes!! So stop telling the people who have paid for the benefit they don’t really deserve it. Human up and fix the programs. Social Security is easy – minor adjustments will solve that problem. Medicare is tougher – you have to eliminate the fraudulent billing by the service providers. And it’s obvious Republicans love crocked businesses.

    Free stuff sounds great on the front and you can always make a simplistic emotional argument anytime but how good is it really.

    If all but one city in the world was gone over night how would the remaining city survive? No farmers for food no miners for raw resources. Would they all throw everything into a collective and share and share alike.

    What would happen when the collective ran out of food? Or would they throw a part into the city resources to help out for a little while, while others started to use what they have to make more of everything. A few families move to the abandoned farms and start growing crops. Some one open up a mill for grain, someone else a mill for metals and mining the oar.

    I will take the second.

    Imagine how clean our streets would be if all those freeloaders were made to pick up trash.
    They could also mow lawns, clean urinals and bathe the elderly.
    Instead, they just play XBox and sell drugs on the side. Oh and walk to the mailbox to pick up their welfare check.

    Democrats have got them hook,line and sinker. Kinda like a heroine dealer. Once they’re hooked, it’s almost impossible to get off and they’ve got a voter for freebies for life. Just ask Barry.

    Entitlements were invented by Obama.

    “….Imagine how clean our streets would be if all those freeloaders were made to pick up trash…” Sorry. The Unions went on strike to stop volunteers from cleaning up trash. After the settlement that banned volunteering, the municipal areas are still trashy. But the unions successfully protected their jobs.

    The Free Ride is OK with me. Just form a PAC and let people voluntarily donate to their priority. Get govt out of this ‘buy votes’ corruption.

    “Why are a high percentage of Social Security payment made to people who never paid into the system?”

    The only people getting Social Security who did not pay are those receiving survivors benefits. There are 6.3 million people receiving survivor benefits. In 1970, there were 6.4 million.

    People on SSDI (Disability) have paid in. I think it’s worth arguing that in a lot of cases, it shouldn’t be a permanent benefit. A disability that keeps you from doing your previous work, doesn’t mean you can’t do something else. Instead of SSDI for life, there should be an emphasis on retraining & acquiring education.

    SSDI only accounts for 20% of beneficiaries.

    Can’t find anything about the pimp in Columbus. More myths, methinks.

    I don’t know how you can say Social Security and Medicare are FREE entitlements. I’m 67 and worked 45 years paying into SS and later MC. I do not consider that free!!! Yeah maybe Medicaid is an entitlement program, but the other two sure as hell are not. Your kind of american (lowercase on purpose) would have the aged and poor dying in the streets just so the elites can siphon off more of our tax dollars.
