    Obama ending social security as we know it

    Obama ending social security as we know it

    I am amazed, once again, that liberals are not screaming at the tops of their lungs about Obama’s proposal to extend the social security tax holiday for another year.

    I noted in October 2008, January 2009, and again in December 2010, that Obama seeks to end the pay-in concept of social security, in fact if not in theory. 

    Consistently Obama treats the FICA pay-in as merely another tax to be played with as part of a redistributionist policy.  During and immediately after the 2008 campaign it was a plan to issue refundable tax credits which amounted to double-dipping, and in the past year it has been the FICA tax holiday.

    The common theme throughout Obama’s proposals has been to divorce benefits and pay-ins, and to treat Social Security benefits as merely another government welfare program.

    Some Democrats in Congress are opposing Obama’s plans, but there is none of the over-the-top rhetoric which is directed at conservatives who want to fix not end social security as we know it.

    When it comes to social security, liberals have met the enemy, they just won’t admit it.

    Obama is trying to bankrupt the country and is doing a pretty good job. Destroy the US economy and like phoenix rising out of ashes he will build a new totalitarian state. This is his goal. He is no longer trying to hide it. The 45% of the populace had better wake up and smell the coffee or it will be too late.

    He’s cutting the SS receipts by 1/4. SS is already in trouble. He wants to up the stakes.

    […] to the above question is “for the country” – screw you. We know better than that. In fact, like the professor, we are still asking the question we and the professor asked a long time…: “Obama ending social security as we know […]
