    "National Republican Congressional Committee Chair (NRCC), Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), and several other Republicans have once again signaled their party’s desire to privatize Social Security. They have introduced legislation to divert employee Social Security contributions into private accounts. The new legislation arrives on the heels of a bipartisan nationwide backlash against Republican attempts to privatize Medicare."

    On the one hand - it's nice that the Repubs aren't lying to us about their desire to destroy Medicare and Social Security anymore.

    On the other hand - screw you, you selfish Repubs!
    Tax cuts for the richest 1-2 % are NOT more important than Medicare and Social Security.

    I think they've already lost before it's even begun. However........never underestimate the stupidity of the American people. Remember, they "elected" (using the term loosely) George Dubya TWICE!

    Are they F'n CRAZY ? Didn't these idiots learn a thing from the crash of 08' !! what if the repubs had succeeded in privatizing SS prior to that crash and millions of people had as the Repubs suggested, invested their money in the stock market as apposed to the funds being deducted to SS Accounts.


    What a calamity that would have been, and now these dumb fucks want to revive the same idiotic Idea !!! there's not one thing wrong with how SS is working for the elderly, the only fix that is needed is to increase the amount of income from which SS deductions are taken, from $98,000 to about $120,000 and the problem would be fixed. This fix has been studied and figured out for several years now, but the Repubs won't hear of doing it
