In government, a smaller increase is a “cut”.
When the Democrat Party insists on a $50 million dollar increase for a given program, but the Republicans only authorize $45 million, we’re told that’s a 10% budget “cut” for that program. So a ZERO increase is a huge cut for Social Security, right?
Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker has been soundly ripped by his Democrat opponents for proposing zero-percent budgets.
Tom Barrett, the unmotivated candidate-by-default of the hapless left has screamed “Walker’s Cutting Services!” by not taxing and spending more.
Now we get word that the Democrat controlled congress & White House are holding Social Security to a zero-percent increase in 2011. What is THAT then, if not a draconian cut to our senior citizens’ retirement benefits?
The kicker to THIS, of course, is the reason why Democrats are cutting your Social Security: It’s because they paid prisoners $4.3 million of your money last year, and $18 million to dead people.
Back in January of 2009, I offered to help bail out Social Security with a generous six-figure donation. That offer still stands, and there are no doubt thousands like me willing to do the same.
So howzabout it, voters? Are you going to cast your ballot for the evil, left-wing, social security slashers who favor convicted criminals and the dead over our seniors and the handicapped?
