    Sad stats,don't see what they have to do with healthcare tho. Some people simply have nothing and others that do have, spend every cent.

    As for that being too much in cash, first thing I learned was the most important return was return of principle. I have more money sitting in cash earning virtually nothing than ever. Simply don't see many investments worth the risk. Already Have enough risk in stocks, bonds are a bad bet in a rising interest rate environment, real estate is illiquid, etc, etc.

    1. the OP is not about Obama.
    2. I was responding to a post about emergency room visits.

    really not hard to follow.

    The OP is about people living paycheck to paycheck, which of course you did not address and it was you who opened the Barry door by inserting health care in the mix. Keep up.

    you might want to read the thread. the second post brought up Obama and health care, the third brought up emergency room.

    again, not hard

    The democratic way- enslave the masses and convince them they are free.

    did you just accuse others of changing the subject?
