  • Former Sen. Simpson calls seniors “greediest generation”, senior responds

    My Teacher gave me this today, she thought I'd appreciate it and I thought I'd share. This man is 100% right...can't we all be like him when we get old? Haha
    I searched and didn't find it, hopefully it wasn't there already.

    Alan Simpson,
    Senator Democrat-Wyoming,
    Co-Chair of Obama's deficit commission, calls senior citizens the 'Greediest
    Generation' as he compared " Social Security " to a Milk
    Cow with 310 million teats. August, 2010

    Hey Alan,
    Let’s get a few things straight…
    1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole for FIFTY YEARS…

    2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63)…

    3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made Bernie Madoff proud…

    4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and your ilk pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67. NOW, you and your shill commission is proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN…

    5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now you morons propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal money from Medicare to pay the bills…

    6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you incompetent ba****** spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay of YOUR debt…

    To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bull****” on your incompetence. Well, Captain Bull****, I have a few questions for YOU…

    1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

    2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

    3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

    4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and health care benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or, as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

    It is you, Captain Bull****, and your political co-conspirators who are “greedy”. It is you and they who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes. That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

    And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a *****.

    well, off the bat Simpson is a Republican so you can drop the 100% right thing.

    Second, it's from last august.

    Third, check out snopes http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/simpson.asp - he was talking about special interests that all agreed that cuts need to be made but then argued why their stuff was underfunded.

    Here's an interview with Simpson on Social Security.

    Simpson is a plain speaker and is very refreshing and entertaining to listen to. Read the interview.

      Al is indeed a great republican and a great man. He was a FANTASTIC senator. And his straight-forward redneck logic is legendary.

      Proud of him

        He was one of my favorite senators of all time. He could just put people in their place and explain conservative positions much better than anyone today. He has a storytelling cadence and tone that is awesome along with a very sharp wit.
