Representative James McGovern a Massachusetts Democrat, says the following quote about cuts concerning Social Security:
“I’m frustrated as hell that you’ve got members of Congress talking about cutting benefits for Social Security recipients when they had nothing to do with this economic mess we’re in.”
I agree with his quote, as the Social Security tax that we the workers have been, some still paying into it, has nothing to do with the deficit, as it is separate from the overall budget.
So why are the Republicans so adamantly for cutting back or killing SS? Do they think we are living the high life? Not.
One think the Republicans don’t want to do is piss off granny, as they will come back right at you.
Saxby Chambliss is getting a lot of grief from the right-wing fringe, for trying to work out a deal to lower the deficit ceiling. Chambliss should never been a senator in the first place, when he ran a disgraceful campaign against a war vet and an honorable man.
The fringe of the right wing has completely lost it.

What Saxby Chambliss and Ronald Reagan have in common.
House Republican Paul Ryan defends his budget blueprint, medicare overhaul.
Wisconsin Rep Paul Ryan (R)
In a speech before the Economic Club of Chicago, the Wisconsin Republican maintained, “We cannot avert a debt crisis unless we directly address the rising cost of health.”
Ryan said his plan to overhaul Medicare would “give power to deny business to inefficient providers. [Democrats] plan is to give government the power to deny care to seniors.”
Paul Ryan R-Wisconsin
Paul Ryan, the anointed budget writer for the GOP led House, accuses ThinkProgress of “Stacking Crowds” at his town hall meetings in his home state of Wisconsin.
When the Democrats was having their town hall meetings in 2009, it was alright for the Tea Baggers, and other right wing loons, to scream, shout, and wreak all kinds of havoc. But when the Republicans have town hall meetings, they say people are bussed in to disrupt them, and its not right to do that. Well Ryan, all I can say is “Pay Back is a Bitch.”
