Pissed Off!!
Pissed Off!!

I don't think pissed really covers 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 littleticked 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 "bull****" to your incompetence. Well, Captain Bull****, 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 Bull****, 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.

EVERYONE!!! If you like the way things are in America delete this. If you agree with what a Montana citizen, Patty Myers, says, please PASS IT ON!!!!

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!

fwiw..

Actually..."Entitlement", in this context, is not a pejorative....Simply put, we have entered into a contract which is LEGALLY enforceable.....Can't wait for THAT class action suit....
There is no legal or logical position for Mr. Simpsons' position...And judging from is background, a better given name wouldmhave been Homer....

Funny, it was Mitt Romney that attacked the 47% for not paying taxes, but the biggest group in the 47% was the senior citizens. You had no problem agreeing with Mitt but now you attack someone else for saying pretty much the exact same thing but instead this person is more direct with his attack.Tea Parties are for little girls with imaginary friends

Senior citizens are, as a general rule, retired slick.

If they are on SS alone, they pay no more taxes. If they have investments and draw on them as part of retirement income, they pay the same taxes as a working man, depending on their level of income from investments, IRA's or any other retirement account. There are no special discounts in taxes of retirement income. If they have large investments they are drawing on, then they may be paying capital gains taxes.

Educate yourself a little bit.

I know that you idiot, I was pointing out that it was Mitt that didn't have a clue. And it was I that was defending the senior citizens when Mitt made that comment about the 47%. It was you and all your right buddies on here that agreed that what Mitt said was correct even though I pointed out that the majority of the 47% were retired senior citizens that have already paid their fair share of taxes for years. Do a search, you will find that this is what I said, slick!

Funny, I don't remember Ron Paul winning. Looks like your another idiot that likes to make assumptions on a person you nothing nothing about. And for the record, I have never been a registered democrat, for years I was a republican until I got tired of all the stupid right this and left that stuff and went independent. So suck it!

I always thought Mitt was referring to the 47% as lazy pieces of crap on the government tit and lookin for more free sh#t.

FYI: Mitt never did clarify specifically who he was referring to when he mentioned the 47%.

So, your statement is an assumption as much as mine is.

There you go slick.

My statement was not an assumption. Mitt's percentage number was correct and they broke down who the 47% was. Mitt was giving factual numbers, he just never bothered to take the time to see who was in that 47%.

Effective tax rates are negative for the bottom two quin-tiles. If I am not mistaken Social security payments are not taxed (and their payments count as income, not as a tax payment), and if retirees have Capital gains they are taxed at 15%.

This chart shows the bottom two quin-tiles (40%) are receiving payments in excess of their reported incomes.

I do not see how retirees could possibly receive payments in excess of the SS payments and investment taxes?

Looks to me like the "poor" are getting a sh!t ton of free govt money

There is no such thing as "a little socialism". And that's the problem with Liberals. They think that can work. Socialism doesn't work. Never has, never will. Because eventually it devolves into something far worse.

So, you resort to personal attacks, and telling me to perform a sexual act on you. That's ok as I don't have thin skin, BUT you denying that you are a bleeding heart liberal/socialist and Obummer supporter, just doesn't cut it.

Your name fits you perfectly.
