But, at least she's got the balls to call it like it is and point the finger of accountability where it should be pointed!
Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming , Co-Chair of Obama's deficit commission, calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation, as he compared "Social Security" to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.
Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana ... I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!
If you like the way things are in America delete this. If you agree with what a fellow Montana citizen Patty Myers says, PASS IT ON!!!!
I think this woman hits the nail on the head. I don't care what they do with social security in the long term, but in the short term (10-20 years) those who paid in should get money out. But both parties are constantly angling to direct spending to their buddies so that ruins their plans.
heading towards an inevitable demographic crisis with more seniors retired relative to wage earners, which means less money for seniors or higher ages for SS eligibility or higher taxes or a huge push to import young high-income workers from other countries. Or all of these things. We should have been paying down the debt in anticipation for this.
We should be doing that now.
But I'm coming to hate the use of the word 'greed' and such inflammatory rhetoric. Maybe because making points using hyperbole helps a political cause while driving people apart. Maybe because people project so often, that any use of such a word tends to cover up the hypocrisy of the person using it. In any case, people who actually know what's going on use more data and less provocation. Like with this politician implying that recipients of SS were greedy when he was far worse, himself.
