President Obama said in an interview with CBS News that if we don't raise the debt ceiling (allow Progressives to borrow more money that we the people will have to repay), he may have to withhold social security checks from senior citizens and veterans.
Obama's administration has wasted more money in less time than anyone else in history. Words like incompetence, waste, and corruption don't begin to describe the staggering burden they have created for all Americans, our children and grandchildren.
Bloated and frivolous government projects abound, and the only thing they can think of cutting is Social Security checks to retired senior citizens and veterans?
One of my friends said, "Obama is shameless and dishonorable. He can't guarantee social security checks won't go out? Unadulterated deliberate scare strategy. If they don't, it's because HE orders that they be prioritized lower than other payments. As a Social Security administrator admits, not paying would be a political decision."
Another friend asked the question, "How does the government confiscate trillions of dollars in the name of retirement insurance and then must borrow money to pay it out? They should all be in jail...that's where a CEO would be."
How can we, the people, trust them with more of our money? With their track record, why would anyone want them to continue to take more of our money to manage for our retirement?
Social Security? There's nothing "secure" about it.
