I would have to say that MOST of their social programs are a HUGE success. If we want to balance the budget lets cut the military spending...look at the largest piece of the pie....not social programs which account for a small percentage of the whole.
I am going to school thanks to government grants
social security is what my mom is surviving on after working her whole life and raising 4 kids who all pay taxes
unemployment helps people avoid homelessness
Welfare is a drop in the bucket and provides a social safety net to keep people from starving on our streets like a 3rd world nation
Re: abortion haters ...would you rather planned parenthood closed....all people were forced to have a baby. Would you rather have disease rate skyrocket because people can no longer receive treatment and education.....wake up
Re: CIA ....they might have found Osama...if it is really true...but they have a history as the largest drug smugglers in U.S. history...this is documented fact. They were responsible for the creation of crack cocaine.
Military spending and health care reform would balance the budget....but we operate under a system based on debt...so that will never happen. This is no accident...the federal reserve runs our monetary system...and charges interest on any loans issued to the government...so that is why the debt is so high....because a few are getting rich while the rest of us suffer.
Do your homework google :
1. the federal reserve
2. the Bilderburg group
3. The Council on Foreign Relations
4. The Trilateral Commission
5. The Rothchilds
