The Austerity Rhetoric is ramping up.
The National Debt is the Issue of the Day.
How in the world are we going to pay for it — especially for all those Baby-Boomers with the audacity to dare to Retire, after working all our lives;
After paying all our lives into the Social Security Trust Fund, as our Govt required us to do.
HOW Dare We — actually expect the Govt to Pay the Benefits that we were promised? Oh the Nerve!
Here’s the sleight of hand Hoodwink that the GOP Loan-Sharks are preparing to pull off — pay attention, because it’s a classic trick of misdirection — and it goes by fast:
It is the Federal Government that has the Legal Obligation —
to payback the Social Security Trust Fund
NOT the other way around !
It is the Federal Govt that raided OUR Retirement “Cookie Jar” —
and it is the Federal Govt that needs to replace them.
What’s left of OUR “Cookies” should be permanently off the Table.
In other words, All cuts to SS Benefits should be OFF the Table.
