With a November election less than 5 months away, and in what appears to be a possible Republican landslide, you'd think Republicans would take the fiscal conservative, cut-spending, position that the country is clamoring for. BUT NOOOOOO!
The latest round of Republican political suicide comes from none other that House Minority Leader John A. Boehner who is siding with Democrats in proposing raising the minimum age for Social Security benefits to 70.
"We need to look at the American people and explain to them that we're broke," Mr. Boehner said.
"If you have substantial non-Social Security income while you're retired, why are we paying you at a time when we're broke?" he said. "We just need to be honest with people."
Why isn't this clown honest and tell the American public why we are f*cking broke!
No let's not cut gobs of pork from every single budget.
Let's not trim the ridiculous welfare-state entitlements that are sucking us dry.
Let's not cut the billions that we ship-out to worthless enemy countries, and the black-hole that is the UN.
Let's not reform immigration and continue to allow 20 million illegals full citizen benefits, while they send billions abroad.
Let's not reform the tax code that let's 48% of Americans pay no federal income tax.
Let's not cut the ridiculous, over-bloated government payrolls.
Sure, the answer to our financial crisis is to tell working Americans to keep working till they're 70.
GOOD LUCK WITH THAT ONE MR. BOEHNER!
