Quote Of The Day

Economist Dean Baker:
Robert Samuelson is once again calling for cuts to Social Security and Medicare, ostensibly in the name of generational fairness. Samuelson makes the now common argument that a hugely disproportionate share of government spending goes to these programs that primarily serve the elderly. Of course, using Samuelson logic we should also complain that a hugely disproportionate share of government expenditures go the very wealthy.

Robert Samuelson's Social Security Demagoguery at the Washington Post
It constantly amazes me how many assclowns will spout off about how taxing the rich more is "unfair" or "class warfare", yet those same people seem to be perfectly OK with taking away money that ordinary people have been saving up via Social Security their entire lives.

I'm so sick of this shit Cujo-and that fact that many sheep buy into these lies show the depth of the pile of shit this country is standing in.

The bad part is the chances of that goal of gutting or getting rid of SS is very high.

Yes, I won't be shocked if they manage, One Fly. It seems as though there's nothing they can't do to us. There are always going to be people who will let the Democrats do these things to us, because the Republicans will just do it worse.
