Meanwhile our magic unicorn-powered economy president blathers, threatens, panders and punts.
Then there's this:
Many of the million-dollar couples believe they rightfully deserve the benefits they have been promised. They have, after all, spent all of their working years paying into Social Security and Medicare. And true enough, the typical 66-year old couple and their employers, on their behalf, have contributed nearly $500,000 in payroll taxes (in today's dollars) toward these benefits during their working careers.
But regardless of how much they have contributed, the hard reality is that the federal government has already spent it. No matter how deserving they are, it is younger generations of workers who have to come up with the money.Tea Partiers, many of them seniors, already know this.
That's why we worked so hard to move the country in a historic direction in the 2010 midterms.
That's why we'll redouble our efforts to defeat this dissembling, incompetent, destructive president in 2012.
We're the ones who really want to win the future. For our kids and grandkids.
