Wichita Peace and Freedom Party Examiner:
There are certain sacred cows that the government never messes with….until now. One of such cows is Social Security. And yet it is in danger of being done away with. There are actually politicians that want to end Social Security. That would make it impossible for millions to ever retire. They would be forced to work until the reach the grave. Those who get sick from old age, would be thrown to the wolves.
As reported by the Daily Kos;
“The Republican co-chair of the commission, Alan Simpson, recently insulted an advocate for women's rights by saying Social Security is like a welfare "milk cow with 310 million tits."
Also from the Daily Kos;
“The Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) has put together a website with Simpson's most offensive quotes. The website has a game where you try and tell Simpson's real quotes from fake ones. Play the game, and join the fight to protect Social Security, here:
Click here to see what Alan Simpson said about Americans who depend on Social Security.”
The last thing any decent politician wants to worry about is defending social security. This is a Tea Party idea by extremist who believe the government has no responsibilities to the people it governs over. It seems unlikely the public will put up with such non-sense, but we can’t take a chance.
Let’s make it clear to all those who seek office that Social Security is here to stay and we are not going to just throw our senior citizens into the street to die off and blow away.
