The President lashed out at the GOP, blasting them for trying to destroy Social Security. Then, he told a whopper of a lie. His usual historic big bold comprehensive lie:
Obama said he’s “committed to working with anyone, Democrat or Republican, who wants to strengthen Social Security.” But he proposed no ideas for doing that.
Just like so called health care reform, Wall Street reform, and any other reform, or program. His idea of bipartisanship is I won, it’s my way or the highway. Even some Democrats are angry over his smug and dishonest attitude.
But, in the true and honest spirit of bipartisanship, I would like to work with the President.
Mr. President, first you need a history lesson. Real, factual history, not made up revisionist history. The reason Social Security is going broke is the government. Yes, Mr. President, your precious government is bankrupting Social Security. Lyndon Baines Johnson took the Social Security surplus to fund his guns and butter administration. He financed the Viet Nam war and his Great Society failure. He even won an important court ruling allowing him to do so.
Every administration and legislature since has stolen money from Social Security to fiance their failures. To save Social Security, the government itself must stop stealing its money. The solution is simple. It requires a very short and simple piece of legislation.
The government- President and Legislature- will be forbidden from appropriating, borrowing, or transferring any money out of Social Security. Advocacy of said actions will be grounds for impeachment. Next, the government will implement and execute a plan to pay back all the money it stole since the 1960s.
There you go, Mr. President. I hope my solution was helpful and I fully expect you, as the bipartisan President, to consider it. Use your clout with the Speaker of the house and the President of the Senate and pass this legislation now.
Oh, and stop lying to the American people about the reasons Social Security is going broke. Just tell the truth. The government drove Social Security to the brink.
