Yet whenb the idea was floated out that the average citizen be allowed to invest some of their own money in an effort to fix this the moonbats went apoplectic!

Don't think that calling them moonbats is nice? Ten years before when Clinton suggested the same thing the moonbats were in ubison about how great it was ... but their handlers who were squandering SSI funds to perpetuate the lie of a balanced budget to keep the moonbats happy.

Again what you reap you will sew.

Those who think the expense of the war in Iraq is high need only wait about 10 years to see just how devistating this program is going to be to our economy.
Government operated give-away programs don't work. They end up costing far more than the original projections call for.
The federal government, while a necessity, is the most inefficient organization in this country.
