Greediest Generation? - December 15, 2012, 09:20 AM

Just saw this. Did a search and don't think it's a repost.

Alan Simpson, Republican Senator from Wyoming and co-chair of President Obama's deficit commission, calls senior citizens the "Greediest Generation" as he compared Social Security to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.

Here's a response in a letter from Patty Myers, a career school teacher in Montana ... I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!

"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!!!
  1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.
  2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).
  3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.
  4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and "your ilk" pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67. NOW, you and your "shill commission" are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.
  5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now "you morons" propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because "you idiots" mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.
  6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you "incompetent bastards" spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.
To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit" to your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:
  1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?
  2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?
  3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?
  4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?
It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed leech.
That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.
And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son-of-a-bitch. NO, I did not stutter.
If you like the way things are in America delete this. If you agree with what a Montana citizen Patty Myers says, please PASS IT ON!!!!

P.S.
And stop calling Social Security benefits "entitlements" WHAT AN INSULT!!!!
I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years. It's my money; give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous to be dolling out these monthly checks.

How can you not agree with her?

And what I find disturbing is that so many people despise congress. Yet most all incumbents were reelected? That is mind boggling.

Yeah but you were forced to pay it by the gov't with the promise of getting something back when you retire for the 40+ year loan that you gave the gov't. In ponzi schemes you invest in it willingly. To try to take that away from those that have paid into it all their lives now is ridiculous.

So is continuing to try an make an inherently flawed system continue to hobble along. I doubt anyone in my age group will ever see that money

Just because it's compulsory doesn't make it any less of a scam

I wonder at what point in the political process do the people we elect and send to Washington every few years transform into these evil, unrecognizable creatures that are bent on doing us harm?

All the time

My candidates usually lose to the panderers, the sound byte/no substance types, the "electable" guy with no distinction from the other guy, the guy who puts peripheral issues up front and ignores the elephant in the room, the token candidate, the entrenched, out of touch incumbent, the special interest whore, etc etc

All the time. As long as a majority of the population of this country are receiving some sort of assistance from the government, they will continue to vote to maintain that.

Everyone is greedy and nobody wants to take on the harder issues.

This.
SS is the very definition of a Ponzi scheme or a Susu.
Had anyone else tried to do this, they and all the officers would be thrown in prison.

Even at the VERY FIRST beneficiary, the benefits paid out were more than what was paid in, paid for by folks still contributing

Well that's because the interest over the years was supposed to cover that but you're right and it is flawed. They need to find a way to take care of the retired and cut it for our generation in such way that allows us to get some sort of tax break if we put more money in IRA. Don't know. I'm just making shit up.
