I am conservative. I don't know enough about Medicare to give an intelligent answer.

I do know about Social Security and I would like to see it phased out.

Yes.

Do you go out and buy a new Porshe that you cannot afford? If not, you are against medicare and social security as well. If so, you are probably bankrupt and support the nation spending to insolvency as well.

Where did I say "privatize" social security.

I want the American worker to have the right to decide what to do with THEIR money. I want the American worker to have choices. I want them to have the FREEDOM to decide what and how to invest their money.

Don't you?

Don't you?
Are you saying that right now American workers don't have the right to decide where they put their money?
