If big government is our beef, then what is more bloated, more out-of-control, more emblematic of the drain on our resources than Social Security?
Even the name sounds vaguely subversive. It bears the aroma of one of those un-American, welfare state European imports⎯like Danish pastry, French fries, frankfurters, English muffins, pepperoni pizza. One could go on, but the point is made.
To compound the insult, Washington doesn’t even give the average freedom-loving American a choice in the matter.
Anybody who wants to make a decent living is forced to participate in the Social Security system…a lot like that communistic Obamacare that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and their collectivist fellow travelers just passed against the wishes of the majority.
Not only should we tell Washington what to do with its Social Security money, the old folks ought to pay for their own health care, too.
Medicare…now, there’s another huge bureaucracy gobbling up tax money that we should be allowed to keep for ourselves.
Let the free market take care of ’em. It’s the American way. Besides, it’s right there in the Constitution.
