Congressman Cleaver, Are You Ignorant Or Just A Pathologic Liar?

I'm so proud to be one of Congressman Emanuel Cleaver's constituents.  The Kansas City Democrat and chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus put this little gem up on his Facebook page today to celebrate the 77th anniversary of Social Security being signed into law........

Cleaver's comments on the occasion were as follows....

"Today is the 77th anniversary of Social Security being signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.  Now, 160 million workers are building toward a more secure retirement for themselves and their families through their contributions, and 55 million seniors, disable workers, widows and children currently rely on it for economic security each month."

There are only 2 explanations for this bit of progressive pablum.....either Emanuel Cleaver is the densest, most gullible person on Earth, OR, he thinks you are.  My bet is on the second choice.

Congressman Cleaver would STILL, after all these years, have you believe that your Social Security contributions are going into some magical vault, to be returned to you many times over upon your retirement. The only thing the SS contributions you make today are building is a more secure retirement for today's seniors, because that money is going right back out the door as fast as you can send it in (faster actually).

Depending on your current age, the people who will be "working to build YOUR more secure retirement" likely haven't even been born yet.  Let me think for a sec...there is a name for that kind of financial system, wait a minute, it's coming to me...........Oh yeah, now I remember.................................
Ponzi Scheme !!!!!!!!
You know, the same kind of thing that Bernie Madoff received a 150 year prison sentence for running.  Who knows, maybe if Congressman Cleaver keeps reneging on business loans he will someday get to compare notes with Mr. Madoff.  We can only hope.
