In answer to paft's question about whether there is actually voter fraud going on, the answer looks to be yes.

Now, I'm not going to say that state voter ids will prevent this. Nor do I oppose absentee ballots or voting by mail. My only point is that there is voter fraud that you can find when someone actually looks for it. And we do need to think about the proper ways to structure the system to try and prevent fraud as best we can.

Going for Broke.

In yesterday's debate, moderator Martha Raddatz said:

"Let's talk about Medicare and entitlements. Both Medicare and Social Security are going broke and taking a larger share of the budget in the process."

"Will benefits for Americans under these programs have to change for the programs to survive?"

And Paul Ryan responded with:

"Absolutely. Medicare and Social Security are going bankrupt. These are indisputable facts."

Wellllllll... not so much. Collapse )
