    To POTUS and other opponents of capitalism in Congress:

    My husband & I are tired of working HARD to support our family and acquire wealth while this administration is working HARDER to accuse us of “hating the poor, racial prejudice, and being greedy”…just because we DON’T want to support the 47% of people who don’t work and DON’T PAY ANY Federal Income Tax!

    Here it is from the President’s recent appointment to head up Medicare, Donald Berwick, “Any health care plan that is just, equitable, civilized, and humane, must…must…redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and less fortunate. Excellent health care is by definition…redistributional.”

    The decision as to when, where, and to whom we ‘spread the wealth” belongs to WE THE PEOPLE, not the Federal Government.

    We’re working with other principled Patriots to re-establish the INDIVIDUAL rights of man granted by Almighty God…LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

    How about giving up home mortgage deductions and NOT financing wild government spending? How about giving up ALL tax deductions in return for fiscally sound government? Real solutions are unpopular and why political democracy is a runaway train on a short track.

    Don’t complain. Don’t comply.

    I’m one of those old folks collecting Social Security; my children are rapidly — too rapidly to suit me — approaching SS eligibility; some of my grandchildren are already paying into the “Ponzi scheme” as you say; hopefully, my great-grandchildren will NEVER be forced into it.

    The SS system was perking along just find until some greedy politicians raided the trust and put those funds into general revenue. Perhaps, as you say, Bill, smaller families killed the goose that laid the golden egg.

    No matter, I say shut her down (preferably using your formula), but I’d be willing to consider reduced — not eliminated — benefits to help bring this country back on her financial feet.
