“Steve Young the Ex pro S.F. 49er's QB and great, great, great grandson of Brigham Young as well as a long time supporter of gay rights (as well as his wife) just made a guest appearance at a Mormon LGBT conference and spoke of building bridges with the gay community. Glad to see that there are some influential Mormon's that oppose this hateful philosophy. I spent sixteen years in S.L.C. and married an excommunicated member. If I had the time I would love to tell how trying it was to live under the shadow of the temple as a non member and of the intolerance that the church breeds.”
“It was the money that was siphoned from these programs that damaged them, for your information. These programs if left alone in the past would be much more effective like the programs in all of the democratic socialist governments that enjoy a better standard of living then we in the once #1 US do.”
“You hit the nail on the head. The GOP is in crisis mode because with each passing day more people WILL be telling everyone what a godsend ACA is over the way it was. The lies against ACA will be finally become evident and detractors will realize they were duped by the GOP, big insurance and big pharma. This shutdown was the last trick up their sleeve... a hail mary pass! ACA or Obamacare will be a huge success and the GOP is going to pay dearly, and very soon.”
“Medicare & Medicaid stay intact, unless the GOP ever figures out a way to get rid of it. They have been trying since both programs were put in place. ACA is along the same lines as these two programs so what is your beef?”

“Republicans have been trying to make both of them solvent. Democrats have stopped them every time. That is why Obama was able to take 500 billion from Medicare and why SS is going bankrupt. I too k retirement at 62 just to be sure I at least got some of my 40 years of SS taxes back.”

“Medicare and Medicaid are not that great. Neither is Social Security. When these programs were created no one could forsee the economic downfall they have created. Poor planning, widespread abuses of the programs and conditioning the people to be dependent on the government. With SS many never saved money for retirement because they were lead to believe they did not have to and ended up living in poverty. Medicare cannot cover the current costs of healthcare and many cannot afford the supplement premium in the years when they need medical coverage the most. Medicaid is so abused the costs are out of control.
Now we are lead to believe that another goverment program has been created save us all. Yeah right. If it is so wonderful why are our leaders exempt?”
