Yuppers, social security is going to devastate the economy

I don't see any alternative to gutting Social Security, do you? After all, the tax cuts for the rich are more important than anything, and if we didn't have the massive payola to the Coward in Chief's friends and relations, why, the economy could collapse back into that nightmare of peace and prosperity that haunted us during the Clinton years.

I believe there's a name for this sort of reform:

fraud n.
  1. A deception deliberately practiced in order to secure unfair or unlawful gain.
  2. A piece of trickery; a trick.
    1. One that defrauds; a cheat.
    2. One who assumes a false pose; an impostor.

Why do the Republicans want to kill Social Security? They want that money to go to their rich patrons. If Social Security was kept around, that money would go to hoi polloi, and then the wealthy would have to work to get their hands on it.

Wealthy people, working for a living? INCONCEIVABLE!
