Tex Shelters here, and I want to talk to you about one of the biggest, most terrible scary things for the American economy since Eugene V. Debs ran for president and that nasty Ralph Nader made the auto industry put seat belts in cars: Social Security. Social Security is going last until 2037 unless something is done so that corporate America, Wall Street, and bankers can get a hold of the money that ordinary citizens so selfishly keep from us.
Everyone knows because we have repeated it time and time again in the media, that Social Security is increasing our deficit and our deficit will destroy the world in a holocaust of hell fire. We know about the budget-destroying power of Social Security even though it is a separately funded problem that has nothing to do with the general budget. Sure, Social Security is funded by direct individual contributions from workers and their employers and the payments come out of the trust, a fund not in anyway connected to the federal budget. But the very existence of Social Security increases the federal deficit.
Comrade Harry “Hitler” Reid, the Stalin of Nevada, defends Social Security money from the rightful owners, Wall Street investors. “One of the things that always troubles me is when we start talking about the debt, the first thing people do is run to Social Security. Social Security is a program that works. And it’s going to be– it’s fully funded for the next forty years. Stop picking on Social Security… I’m not going to go to with any of those backdoor methods- you know, to whack Social Security recipients.” http://videocafe.crooksandliars.com/node/43039/print Did you notice Reid’s Stalinist Hitler use of the word “Whack” like some mafioso union boss?
Well, Reid was 4 years off; SS is solvent for only 36 years more according to the Social Security Trustees’ report,
“Projected OASDI tax income will be sufficient to finance about 75 percent of scheduled annual benefits in 2037 through 2084 after the combined OASI and DI Trust Funds are projected to be exhausted.”
Thus, Reid is a lying scumbag who has everything wrong and so is every other person who wants to use these facts and look for solutions other than letting investors take the trust fund to play with for their personal benefit! Why do they hate America?
