I Think She's Pissed!

 (   I don't think pissed really covers it!  This came to me on email and I had to share it!)                                                                                             

                            Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming  calls senior citizens the 'Greediest Generation' as he compared Social Security to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.
                        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 YEARS.

                        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 YET AGAIN.

                        5.   I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now "you morons"    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 bastards" 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 "bullshit" to your incompetence.
                     Well, Captain Bullshit, 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 taxpayers?

                        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 Bullshit, 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 bitch. NO, I did not stutter.

                                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 checks!

                                                                                                                         PATTY MYERS

Woo! She certainly does sound pissed, and rightly so. Much of the same is happening here in Aus, and I could see this letter doing the rounds here quite successfully. did you know they're planning to put our retirement age up to 70 now for women and 75 for men?
What I want to know is, where will the young people find jobs when us oldies are still holding on to them?

AMEN!!!!! Our government makes me sick!

Brian Miller said...

ugh...its amazing how they can screw things up and then find someone else to blame for it...and somehow still get voted into office again....

All I can say is you go have voiced my sentiments exactly...couldn't have said it better !!!!

What she said is all true. Hell, I've been paying social security for years, and I probably won't see a dime of that when I retire. So glad my money's being well spent by the politicians in Washington!

Stephen Hayes said...

I wonder how Ms. Meyers really feels about this. Alan Simpson is actually one of the more reasonable Republicans out there, someone willing to compromise. I wish he was back in the Senate instead of idiots like Rand Paul.

One Bad Pixie said...

People like Patty are what Washington really NEEDS! People who aren't so willing to be bought off and silenced by 'hush money' while screwing over the rest of the nation, considering they were voted into office in the first place.

I don't understand the system in the US but I'm sure that it's just as bullshit as ours. I worked in the US for 10 years and I qualify for SS when the time comes.

This is a hot button issue for my husband who loves to rant that social security is a scam and that instead of paying into it (assuming it won't be there when he needs it), he'd prefer to opt out, invest the money himself, and see how he does on his own. Then he babbles about the "lock box" and starts drinking.
