True Democrats don't work to slash Social Security. They don't. Not Ever. [View all]

True Democrats work to keep it or increase it. That's it. No negotiation. End of story.

That people who call themselves "Democrats" would work to hand the Social Security Trust Fund to the wealthiest, thereby impoverishing older Americans, sickens me to the core. It is astonishing. Amazing. Disgusting. Dreadful. These people should be thrown out of our party.

Social Security is in fine shape unless the economy stays as bad as it is now for many, many years. If it goes back to anything like the economy that we had for the 70 years before 2008, Social Security will pay full benefits for as far as the eye can see.

If Democrats actually want to "strengthen" Social Security, they must do stuff to fix the economy instead of triangulating and/or folding like cheap lawn chairs over whatever the insane Republicans want. They need to fight. Fight. Fight. For us. For the 99%.

Bragging that they're out-Hoovering Hoover doesn't count.

That is all.
