    Entitlement Hater Paul Ryan Was A Social Security Baby

    Time to dump these phony @ss b1tches!!!!


    [QUOTE]When Representative Paul Ryan was 16 years old , tragedy struck his family. His 55 year old father had passed away from a heart attack. Young Paul Ryan found his father’s lifeless body and was burdened by the fact that he had to tell his mother and siblings of this horrible situation.

    After his father’s passing, young Paul Ryan started collecting social security benefits until the age of 18 years old. He took this benefit and saved it for his college education. Representative Paul Ryan is one example of the millions of people whose lives have depended on our social contract with the American people. Without this benefit, his mother would have had to make even tougher decisions and Representative Paul Ryan may not have been able to pay for his college education. This social contract lifted him and his entire family out of a tough situation.

    [B][COLOR="Red"]Many people do not know that 30% of the social security fund goes directly to widows,orphans and the disabled. It is not solely for the benefit of retirees. Unfortunately this social contract is under a regressive attack by the Republicans, including Paul Ryan.[/COLOR][/B]

    Under Paul Ryan’s Roadmap for America budget, he wants to take a portion of social security and funnel it to Wall Street to gamble with, rather than having the current program stand as it is, as an insurance program rather than an investment. Paul Ryan’s plan states,

    “Initially, workers are allowed to invest 2 percent of their first $10,000 of annual payroll into personal accounts, and 1 percent of annual payroll above that up to the Social Security earnings limit,”

    “Eventually, by 2042, workers will be able to invest 8 percent up to the inflation-adjustment level, and 4 percent of payroll above that, for an account averaging 5.1 percent,

    [B][COLOR="red"]Paul Ryan isn’t the only regressive Republican who’s younger years have benefited from our progressive social contract, United States Senator Scott Brown from Massachusetts benefited from welfare programs also.[/COLOR][/B]

    The attempt of these regressives is not that they want to reform the system, they do not believe the government should be involved in social programs at all. It is purely ideological, even though it was [B][COLOR="red"]progressives that lifted them out of dire straits.[/COLOR][/B][/QUOTE]

    Imagine if we didn't have to pay into SS we could actually buy life insurance.

    Me too. I collected and my SS money was used to buy beer. It is one of the reasons I am conservative. I actually Recognize that the SS made it so I did not need a job while away at school. I wonder about the opportunities I missed by not working. Basically all my opportunity came from work, so I am in general, opposed to things that stop people from needing to work. work and education are the key.

    Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme.

    I'd be vastly better off keeping, managing and investing my contributions myself.

    I'm slowly coming around to that way of thinking.For what they take out of my pay for ss,I think I would rather invest it.

    I'm not anti ss God knows it really helps my grandmother out,but at 33 yrs with the amount of money I have paid into ss,if I could have put that money over the years in some nice safe stocks I could maybe retire earlier than with money going to ss

    Ryan collected while times were good; now we're on the verge of bankruptcy.

    That doesn't make him a hypocrite.

    I think people should be able to do whatever drugs they want to do.

    I love gay people and want you to have the right to suck ball in airport bathrooms.

    I don't want to take people's money for more wars.

    I respect your right to have any kind of family you want.

    If you work your ass off I'm taking 75% of everything you make.

    Entitlements You are not entitled to anything you haven't paid for. You get back what you put in just like a checking account or savings account.

    so ryan received some sort of benefits from social security. well think he would have been smart if he didn't take advantage of the system? i don't. good for him that the system existed and he benefited. isn't that what it was designed for?

    the problem is that it has gotten out of hand and what the media doesn't say is that it is largely middle class entitlements that cause the problem simply because the middle class out populates the rich and poor classes by a large margin. and if the investment playinf field were level, maybe there'd be more incentive for the middle class folks to save more and not go into so much debt they live paycheck to paycheck.

    finally, what about a president who puts forth a phony health care plan that doesn't improve or expand coverage but just raises costs on everyone? does anyone really realize that the whole obamacare was about accounting for all of the health care recipients by forcing them into expensive healthcare plans? remember all of these new healthcare people were already receiving healthcare and it was being paid for. so just where did we improve our lot? the insurance companies got more enrollments and the costs will be increasing from now through forever.

    My mom would have described Ryan’s actions as “pulling up the ladder after using it”

    And anyone with common sense would tell you if the ladder remains within arms reach, we're going to go broke...
