    You want to know how well SS has worked?

    http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/ProgData/taxRates.html

    That is right. We now have a tax rate that is 6.2 times what it originally was on a max taxable that is more than three times what inflation would have it. With that track record we have approximately $2.6 trillion in a trust fund and spend over $800 billion a year.

    That my friend is a ponzi scheme. So the older you are (early investor) the better you will do as you force the young (later investor) to fund your GREED!

    And If Republicans would offer up the Senate Bill for a vote in the House, it would pass. So until they do so, it is on them. If they want to claim they are standing up for some kind of democratic principle (lower case d), they need to actually show they believe in it, even if they don't like the outcome. There are enough votes in the House to pass the Senate bill. Put it up for a vote or the completely arbitrary Hastert Rule, ignored whenever Republican leadership wants to do so, and those that implement it are to blame for this shutdown.

    In other words if they give the dems what they want the dems will agree to accept it. How gracious of them. Try that strategy with your wife and let us know how it works out.

    Well, for a better example, try this one on:

    There's 40 people going to a banquet and they have to decide what to serve for dinner by a majority vote of attendees.

    Steak is on the menu and 26 of them want steak, but because 12 of them REALLY want salmon instead, those 12 refuse to let the catering company mail out the selection cards.

    And the 26 close down the catering service for good, so they can't ever work again and then blame they other 12 for it.
