Obama is working under the table again.....

Ashley Carson, executive director of the Older Women's League, wrote in a blog post in April that Simpson is targeting Social Security to fix the deficit even though it "doesn't contribute" to the country's debt problem. She also accused Simpson of "disgusting ageism and sexism" in characterizing those who oppose cuts to benefits as "Gray Panthers" and "Pink Panthers."

In his email to Carson, which was sent Monday night, Simpson said he is defending Social Security, not trying to undermine it, and referred her to information showing the program's long-range shortfalls.

He went on: "I've made some plenty smart cracks about people on Social Security who milk it to the last degree. You know 'em too. It's the same with any system in America. We've reached a point now where it's like a milk cow with 310 million tits! Call when you get honest work!"

OK, Dude, I've been doing honest work for forty four years, and you were a politician! What did you pay in?

OH, wait! Congress has made a tradition of "borrowing" (yes, those are sneer quotes) from the Social Security Fund, virtually since it's inception, and filling the coffers with worthless IOU's. Now the IOU's are about to come due, and you don't want to pay up! When I finally reach my retirement age, that continues to rise, I will have worked and paid into the system for fifty three years. Does that offend you that I expect some benefit that Congress has promised me for that entire time?

Do you think reducing the manpower of the federal government by laying off Social Security will reduce the deficit? Could it be that repaying the debt to those who paid for your schemes will cause a rise in the National Debt?

Will any borrow and spend politician, please, explain to me how spending a borrowed dollar in some trickle down scam, can ever be recovered in it's entirety? With interest? Can't happen.

Obama routinely places the most divisive people available in positions that will cause trouble. In this case he has recruited at least one person who would curtail our ability to recover what we have already paid in to the government. I would actually be satisfied with that amount that was deducted from my pay checks, the money that I worked for, but I will never see it.

Now you want to criticize some one who lobbies for the elderly, does that make me your problem?

Yes, Dude, I AM part of your problem.
