Opportunistic L I A R S

Turns out that, in their new crystal ball, the trustees note that wages have stalled and that unemployment is something of a problem and that, therefore, the number of people paying into the fund, and the amount that those people can contribute, is likely, maybe, perhaps, who-the-hell-knows-but-panic-anyway, to fall off over the next 20 years or so...unless, of course, we, as a country, actually decide, y'know, to do something about stagnant wages, income inequality, and chronic unemployment.
from Charles Pierce

The DEFICIT has nothing to do with Social Security and Medicare, but all three are negatively impacted by low taxes, unemployment, and stagnant wages.

 If anyone states that reducing the DEFICIT will improve the future of Social Security and Medicare...wait for it...they are L Y I N G.
