Here is a solution for getting rid of PA. It also would help every one improve their lives with out worrying about not qualifying. I expecially would like notpanicking opinion and please notpanicking correct if I make any errors...

Ok in France they do not have PA, however they have an alternative that is fair for every one and keeps them from relying on others and help them improve there life, and it costs lees than all our PA systems put together. Ok In France any single parent home that works, or goes to school get free childcare, any dual parents home where both parents work get free childcare. As well all citizens receive free medical. Included in that is a recovery assistance for any parent who delivers a baby or has a surgery, this assistance gives you a live in care giver for a few weeks to help get you back on your feet quicker. The use a lot of preventative medical treatment, so a lot less people get sick which equals less needed missed days, as well maternity time off ends up a lot shorter, because woman do not need it as long. If a system like this was in place do you believe it can help better improve our country?

  • See the problem with that is if the United States followed any type of logical plan such as this... our country would be totally broke! See, the United States makes all of it's money on healthcare. By over-prescribing medications, pro-longing illnesses, starting total hysteria with diseases such as H1N1, etc... our country is making money. Don't you get it?? Illness is what keeps up going. Illness is what makes money here in the good ole US. Why do you think there is no cure for Cancer? LOL! Right... we can cure anything and everything we want to... but it would do no good and be a big waste of money. No money in cures Hon. No money in a logical healthcare system, because the lack thereof, is what supports our nation.

    Sad, but true....

    And so it goes...

  • Oh and that's still PA. If tax dollars are paying for it than it's PA.

  • Free, isn't free. They also pay more than 50% of there wages to taxes. That is why so many people leave countries like that and move to the USA. Even with free daycare I could not lose 50% of my income and live off it.

    Ya but they get paid more than us to make up for it.

    Ok we pay out a lot more in PA than the system would cost. As for SSI government doesn't consider it PA It's more in line with military Benefits.

    Oh and that's still PA. If tax dollars are paying for it than it's PA.

    No Tax dollars pay military employees, cops, pretty well all government workers. It doesn't all go to PA
