Why are republicans so intent on getting rid of social security and medicare; and then romney /ryan lie about their intentions on the campaign stump?
GOP NEVER SUPPORTED SS and medicare which other countries had before us. Strangely, pubs see the world from a different and ill-concieved perspective, and its amazing people follow them. Their policies have not worked. Look at the bush/cheney presidencey. So many Americans died needlessly in Iraq because of cheney's determination to topple saddam when he knew their was no weapons of mass destruction.
Iraq had done nothing to US, and even the Pope tried to stop bush/cheney.
Then the financial crisis occurred, as well as other bush mistakes.
There is NOTHING to make people think pubs can govern. Certainly this present House led by pubs has accomplished nothing. They've taken more vacation to campaign than any congress in history.
If American don't see throught the GOP LIES, great danger lies ahead.
Under Obama the DJIA is up over 63%. He has brought the soldiers home from Iraq. Obama got bin laden when bush couldn't.
All seniors need to think seriously about their future if pubs should succeed this Nov. They do NOT WISH YOU WELL!!!
