Yes, that's T in front of that number. Politicians throw around that T word and don't think twice about it. Shows just how disconnected they are with the people.

Medicare was passed in 1965 and has about $36 Trillion in unfunded liabilities (heresay). Let me write this number down....
Both sides have been fighting over the Health Care public option amongst other important items.
But, the public option has already been there for decades but you never hear too many from any side say it. I heard one the other day say it.

I don't want California with it's high population having more votes, populace wise, determining say farming practices in Tennessee or Texas. Harry Reid would propose that we have to give massage and chiropractic care to all beef cattle on Wednesdays and all the left leaning, hippy, animal rights fanatics in California, New York, Chicago etc.. would vote it into law. All us folks in low population states will have to comply.............. I'm getting my bovine massage and chiropractic license now in preparation :lol:
