Here's something that most people don't realize:
The ONLY reason Social Security is having any problems is that politicians from both parties looted this huge pool of surplus money to pay for other problems.
Every time they did so, they put an IOU into the system, saying that this money, which was--by law-- intended to pay Social Security recipients, would one day be paid back.
Well. At the end of the Clinton Administration, that money was there. Had that money gone to Social Security there would not have been any problems in the program as far as the eye could see.
I know Republicans aren't capable of remembering back further than the last election cycle, but some of you might remember that was one of the big arguments of the 2000 presidential election. Al Gore, mocked repeatedly by people not worthy of tying his shoes, wanted to put that surplus money in a "Lock Box," (remember that?) saving it for Social Security.
Bush, who co-opted every idea Gore had that polled well (remember that?), immediately began saying he would be Social Security's defender. Just one of the many lies that man told. Democrats criticized Bush for all the horrible things he really did. Republicans criticize Obama for all the horrible things they imagine he is doing.
So, when Bush stole the election from the one man who received more American votes for president than anyone else in history, one of his first priorities was to set in motion the DESTRUCTION of Social Security, by taking all that money he had PROMISED to the American people he would save for the Social Security that was due them...
and he gave it to the Wealthiest 1%.
Every day those Bush Tax Cuts are allowed to continue, the Globalist Wealthy Elite are feeding off the sweat and blood of the American Working People AND THEIR CHILDREN AND THEIR GRANDCHILDREN, sucking the vital life essence out of our great country like vampires.
And here's the kicker-- If you are a working man or woman and you support the Republican Party, you are assisting in your own destruction.
