Social Security and Medicare are NOT
People have been paying into those systems for decades ... it is only reasonable for them to expect something in return
But the programs do need reform ... but just as important as that is the Gov't needs to completely reign in it's spending habits!
Billions of $$'s for pet projects that have NOTHING
to do with Hurricane Sandy are the problem! and that behavior is rampant in the Gov't ... it needs to stop!
