191. Well, I'm not sure how you arrived at that, but of course Obama had to deal with
a hostile Congress in health care reform.

In this Social Security commission, he doesn't have to deal with that, and actually can work to fix a system that's eventually going to be completely broken. (He could have solved BOTH problems by going for single payer and just liquidating the Health Insurance and Pharma industries, but he wasn't a real socialist, I know).


Your predictions are dire, if not a bit accurate.

So, may I ask, how do YOU propose we fix the problem? I doubt you'll have an answer, but I might as well ask. I thought my idea of charging the rich more and limiting their benefits while giving everybody else a reasonable and fair income and health care was a good one, but maybe, just maybe you have a better one? I'd love to read it here, or are you just here to make sure we mistrust Obama forever?
