Social Security must die so America can be what we want it to be?

30 Mar

OK, it’s time to play guess who said it.

Who said, “I mean, just from the very notion that it said that 50 percent of beneficiaries under the Social Security program use those monies as their sole source of income. So we’ve got to protect today’s seniors. But for the rest of us? For — you know, listen. We’re going to have to come to grips with the fact that these programs cannot exist if we want America to be what we want America to be.”?

If you guessed GOTP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia you were right. But, in being right you have ask, “say what”?

Just when you think the far right lunatics can’t possibly say or do anything loonier, what do ya know? They do.

What exactly does Cantor mean when he says, “We’re going to have to come to grips with the fact that these programs cannot exist if we want America to be what we want America to be.”?

Is this what the far right means when it says it wants to take the country back? Take it back to pre-1930? Take it back to pre-New Deal? Take it back to when people worked until they died, and if they couldn’t take care of themselves too bad? This is the scary far right stuff, but of course the farther to the right the GOTP goes the father it goes away from the majority of America’s voters, and it’s going to one day catch up and bite them on the butt.
