On August 14 1935 President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed into law the Social Security Act and the greatest Ponzi scheme in the history of our Nation began. It seems particularly appropriate to evaluate this while we debate the socialization of the Health Care Industry. You see – democrats never talk about the results of their wacky ideas – they only talk about the good deeds they want to perform. FDR snuck in Social Security during a National emergency – the Great Depression. That is why Barack Obama manufactured an emergency to push Health Care through. It doesn’t appear that it is working – and that’s good.
If you don’t think that your government would lie to you – just examine Social Security. Remember the term “lock-box” in connection with Social Security – where exactly is that? The government took our money and then rather than put it away for the day that more people would be draw from Social Security than paying into Social Security – they spent it. The Social Security Administration continues to talk about the money they took from you as an “account.” If I have an account – can I have my money back? Bernie Madoff is in jail for doing exactly what the government is doing to us.
Social Security is another in the long line of programs that are either a train wreck (US Post Office, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac) or are about to be a train wreck (Medicare, Medicaid). No matter how bad things get – liberals stand in front of us and say “Trust us.” Yeah – let’s let them do to Heath Care what they did to Social Security and have it explode on our grandchildren.
