Dear Senator

Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming, Co-Chair of Obama's deficit commission, calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared " Social Security " to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats. August, 2010 .

Here’s a response in a letter from a unknown fellow in Montana, I think he is a little ticked off !


He 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 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 ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made 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 is 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 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 bums 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” on 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 who are “greedy”.  It is you and they who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.  And for what?  Votes. 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 SOB. ”

PASS IT ON!!!!

I got this one last week too, passed on to everyone I could think of who knows how to read!

Stopsign, I'm sure it's in a holster on his hip.

Randy, just what do you think we'd all be worth if the government didn't "Steal" 15% of our salary our whole working lives and left us to invest it ourselves? I think about what these greedy bastards have taken from us and it really sends me over the edge. Now the Dems want to cut 6 billion from a 3.2 Trillion dollar budget. The Republicans are no better cutting a crumby 61 billion. They didn't hear us and they're stupid enough to think we're not watching.

Scooney Adrift said...

Yep, I agree.
We've been robbed!

Supi said...

62 Mil cut isn't even a piss in a bucket. Oops.. a little unlady like of me.

Scott said...

Captain Bullshit and his Fiscal Raiders---I love it!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Scooney Adrift, a new name heard from ... WELCOME! Think of where each of us would be right now.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Supi, it's OK, Washington brings the worst out in all of us.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Scott, Captain Bullshit was so busy reaching across the aisle he, like so many others, forgot why he was sent there.

Sadly, the economy is a huge shit sandwich and we all have to take a bite.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

LL, yum yum!

innominatus said...

Sorry, but I'm not too jazzed by this letter. The people who are bitching about rotten politicians are the same people that VOTED FOR THOSE ROTTEN POLITICIANS for decades. When you consistently vote for assholes, don't act surprised when they act like assholes.

The Social Security money needs to be kept separate and apart from the general funds. That wrong must be righted.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Inno, I don't think he was surprised, I just think he was pissed when a vote grabbing asshole calls him a greedy whiner.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Opie, I agree and good luck to our side.
