Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the Greediest
Generation as he compared "Social Security " to a Milk Cow with 310 million
Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS 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
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
5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from
Day One, and now "you #$%$" 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 #$%$ 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 #$%$" to
your incompetence. Well, Captain Bu!!sheeeet, 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
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 Bu!!sheeeet, 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 beeeotch. NO, I did
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
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 by doling out these monthly
social security was, and always has been a scheme to take a few pennies a week from the millions still working, and a matching sum or more from their employers, and give that money to some people not gainfuly employed. I could tell this Ponzi Program was in trouble when the SS deductions from my paycheck started to excede the income tax deductions. Also, the contract guarenteed payments of a set amount at a certain future time. That is why the original title was Old Age and Survivors Insurance Act. Entitlement, not exactly, it is a contractual obligation, an offer you cannot refuse!
To aggrevate the situation, there were many years when I was working for three or more employers, each one deducting the maximum amount under then current law, and matching with their payments. At the end of the year I could apply my excess payments as credit against income taxes, but the employer contribution just disappeared into the SS maw.
Had any institutional or individual fiduciary sold a plan under these conditions, and squandered the funds held in trust, they would be playing Gin Rummy with Bernie Maddoff up at the Stony Lonesome Hotel.
The Feds have never made a treaty they could adhere to, a promise they could keep, ot tell a truth when a lie was available! Even our admired founding fathers refused to pay back the debts incurred financing our revolution because the French aristocracy who loaned it to us lost their heads and the new French government were not the people we borrowed from.
You realize she is railing against a former GOP senator who preaches austerity.....right? So she is against austerity, meaning she is against cuts to social security and medicaid......both are things YOUR GOP wants.......you understand that right?
