    We must get one thing straight first. The SSA, Medicare, and Medicaid are not tax burden to this country or our national debt. These are all in trust accounts that belong to every working american with a SSN and donating deduction from their personal income "pay checks" only.

    Medicare is not and never has been a burden. Anyone who has Medicare has to pay for it twice out of their retirement benefits and additionally purchase a dual insurance policy from a free market insurance company. As trust funds are exempt from government access.

    The only reason that our presidents "Obama and Romney/Ryan hopeful corp" want socialized health care is so they can pay for the health care of illegal foreign nationals by taxing working americans. Free Market health care is the only true health care that controls cost and services to keep it affordable even if you don't have insurance.

    Now Romney/Ryan continue their lies on trust funds government can't have by trying to defund and steal our money in trust and convert it to a federal accessible tax. Drop socialized health care fraud and plans to add taxes causing more economic strife on the poor.

    Most likely one of the most mis-informed articles I've ever read. Finding out how Ryan's plan works is as easy as a google search.

    What's more amazing is the left is screaming false accusations and phony "results". What the plan really does is take control of fraud, slush funds and hidden accounts and directs it to medical coverage.

    Interesting how the left fears change.

    Who are you even talking about?
    The sum entirety of every bill ever introduced by Paul Ryan that was passed into law:
    Paul Ryan's legislative achievements in his 14 years: renaming a post office & lowering excise taxes on making arrows

    Reading "the virtue of selfishness" by Ayn Rand does not make you an economic genius.

    Amazing how many people are excited about ganging up on a guy because of his extra work and actual effort to save the country. Better to sink out of sight with the good old status quo, right? Just don't think about all the unemployment, underemployment, municipal bankruptcies, $16,000,000,000,000 Federal deficit, etc.

    Under the Ryan proposal millions of medically indigent people would be cut loose, die, and who'd be the wiser, except for their close kin. It would be monstrous, but once done, people forget the indigent dead quickly, so it could be an effective conservative hit and run.
