This is about Social Security….I watch these things because I live on SS and I am always interested on the antics by the Congress, especially the GOPers, that try every year to screw the majority of our retired people.
Sen. Graham of South Carolina has uttered another stupidity when talking about the solvency of the Social Security system…..
In a June 13 Fox Nation debate, Sen. Lindsey Graham said seniors may have to “take a little less” and “pay a little more in” when debating Social Security solvency, reports Knewz via MSN. Graham made the comments while debating Sen. Bernie Sanders during a “Senate Project” debate.
“Let’s do something like Ted Kennedy would do: get Republicans and Democrats to find a way — like the Gang of Six, the Simpson-Bowles plan. Senator Sanders: bring your Social Security plan to the floor. All it does is raise taxes. To get out of this mess, people like me are going to have to take a little less and pay a little more in. We’re going to have to adjust the age one more time like Ronald Reagan and Tip — Tip O’Neil did. There is a bipartisan way forward. You describe problems, but your answer is always the government — it’s always socialism,” Graham said.
Let me help Graham out here…..SS is a governmental program so yes the answer is the government….it’s not rocket science Lindsey(or maybe it is for him).
Let me see if I have this right…..the US dumps billions upon billions of taxpayer money into Ukraine….and billions into Taiwan…..and he wants the retired Americans to take less money…..maybe a better idea is since the Congress is impotent in working for the nation maybe he and his colleagues should take a pay cut….after all their pay day is a mere penitence of the cash they get from bribes from lobbyists.
Graham asks us to learn to live on less money and he lives high on the horse.
To Graham all I have to say is “BITE ME”!
Time for the American people to wake the Hell up!
Your taxes are being wasted on stupidity like war….while your reality is a struggle….is that what you signed up to do?
Congress and the White House are not your friends….time for something to be done to take the country back from the oligarchs that own the Congress and the White House.
Learn the issues and do the right thing for yourself and the country….vote them out and start over from scratch.
