Over the last two years, Obama (with a democrat congress) has put young people on the hook for a lifetime of taxes that will be higher than they otherwise would have been. Yet, they still like him and, presumably, will vote for him in 2012. Puzzling?

"Puzzling?"...

Take a look at what is laughingly called the public education system in this country...

Consider the idea of a living Constitution and how long that charade has been pushed...

Benji's boyfriend buried us in debt and wanted to raise taxes. True love is blind, I guess.

"Obama Opens The Door To Raid Social Security"

So, all pretense that Social Security is an "insurance" or "retirement" plan is now gone. I suppose that's a step in the right direction.

juandos-

i'm ot sure it's quite as simple as that. from what i am hearing, SS will get its full funding and the difference will be made up by credits from the general fund.

this seems to me to be quite a severe violation of PAYGO and a worrying precedent.

granted, the SS surplus has been pillaged for decades, but to provide precedent for topping it up from the general fund is a new idea and one that violates the law around SS which is supposed to cut payouts in the event of revenue shortfalls.

if we begin to treat SS like the rest of our national debt, it's a very different kettle of fish.

morganovich doesn't the Ponzi scamm of SS strike you as being unlawful from the very beginning?

Try as I might I can't find anything in the Constitution that mandates the federal government to intervene in the retirement market...
