"SS and Medicare were both widely agreed upon and had support of both the majority of the public and politicians of both political parties."That's a pretty creative editing of history.Yeah, like I said, this is veering too much toward the political.Google is your friend. http://www.ssa.gov/history/tally.html"the Social Security Act bill [...] was passed in the House on April 19, 1935 by a vote of 372 yeas, 33 nays, 2 present, and 25 not voting...Democrats: 284 YES .... 15 NORepublicans: 81 YES .... 15 NO"284 vs. 15 = majority was yes81 vs. 15 = majority was yes"the Social Security Act was passed in the Senate by a vote of 77 yeas, 6 nays, and 12 not voting...Democrats: 60 YES .... 1 NORepublicans: 16 YES .... 5 NO"60 vs. 1 = majority was yes16 vs. 5 = majority was yesRecall that I said "support of politicians of both political parties.""the Conference Report was passed by voice vote on August 8, 1935 in the House and on August 9th in the Senate."Anyway, this is getting too political, so I'm out now. The NON-political point I was trying to make was that ACA hasn't settled down yet and trying to optimise your financial life around it is trying to hit a moving taget.
