    It's pretty obvious he could care less about the older folks in this country. I don't think anyone does other than other older working class people.

    And to top it off, both parties are talking about finding new ways to defund entitlement programs like SS, and medicare. Both of which I have paid into against my will! And they are also talking about a new higher tax on SS! Just wait till Obozo care kicks in full speed! We ain't seen nothing yet!

    This is exactly why the S will HTF. Eventually they'll run out of my money to give out, then what? It's really basic mathmatics, i'm sure they know it's comming too.

    The main problem is, Social Security from its inception was a scam. If FDR were alive today he would be considered a socialist of the worst order. He'd make Obozo seem like a piker. And then the Dem's, over the yrs. have added demands on the SS funds that it never was designed to handle. It has become a Ponzi scheme of epic proportions & no longer sustainable. What's more, the benefits have not even come close to keeping up with the current cost of living. I can't imagine anyone living on SS alone. A single person dependent only on SS benefits would earn well below the poverty level. But like all the other promises like the pension systems, when they run out of money, they will eliminate your benefits with the stroke of a pen and sleep good at night to boot. Our corrupt officials have absolutely zero conscience and that's only their good points!

    The Progressive Party of 1912 was an American political party. It was formed by former President Theodore Roosevelt, after a split in the Republican Party between himself and President William Howard Taft.

    The party also became known as the Bull Moose Party after journalists quoted Roosevelt saying "I'm feeling like a bull moose" shortly after the new party was formed.[1]

    From 1916 to 1932 the Taft wing controlled the Republican Party and refused to nominate any prominent 1912 Progressives to the Republican national ticket. Finally, Frank Knox was nominated for Vice President in 1936.

    The relative domination of the Republican Party by conservatives left many former Progressives with no real affiliation till the 1930s, when most joined the New Deal Democratic Party coalition of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    Robert M. La Follette, Sr. broke bitterly with Roosevelt in 1912, and ran for President on his own ticket, the 1924 Progressive Party, in 1924. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_Party_(United_States,_1912)
