According to House Republican leader John Boehner, “… the Democrats refuse to acknowledge the challenges faced by Social Security in coming years.”
This obviously false statement of the facts is a continuing mantra of the ‘Party of No.’
Unfortunately however it is a key part of their as yet unstated legislative agenda. That agenda is to be revealed some time in September or when they can finally figure out exactly what it is.
Mr. Boehner goes on to repeat another one of the Republicans’ intelligent sounding but brainless sound bite, “It’s time to have an adult discussion about the future of this critical program.”
Hey Johnny we’re all ready for that discussion so why don’t you run along and find some adults for us to speak with!
The Speaker and his party have acted like children ever since losing the Presidency and the majority in Congress. They seem to place their fingers in their ears and moan and groan about how they cannot get their way while making sure no one else does either.
This controlled controlling tantrum has weighed heavily on the citizens of this country and especially on those who are not considered to be Republican supporters, namely anyone earning less than a quarter of a million dollars per year.
For the party that represents people who do not need nor ever will miss Social Security if it goes away shouldn’t they leave the discussion about saving it to the grown ups?
