McCain Thinks Social Security is A Disgrace

Senator John McCain, presumptive Presidential nominee for the Republican Party at a "Town Hall" meeting in Denver on Monday said," Americans have got to understand that we are paying present day retirees with the taxes paid by young workers in America today. And that is a disgrace. It's an absolute disgrace, and its got to be fixed."

Has this man really been a U.S. Senator for decades? Does Senator McCain have even a rudimentary understanding of the Social Security System? Obviously not. Either Senator McCain is totally senile or he has no business being a U.S. Senator or for that matter running for the Presidency of the United States .

It is bad enough when the Republicans like McCain come up with the wacky idea of privatizing Social Security, but now McCain tells us out loud at a public meeting that he doesn't even understand how the system works. We should now wonder if Mr. McCain has any basic understanding of the United States Government.

Social Security provides an economic safety net to the disabled, the chronically ill, and their dependents. Millions of Children were saved from poverty and able to finish school and become productive earners because of the benefits of Social Security. Social Security is not a disgrace Senator McCain, you are a disgrace. A disgrace because you don't even understand the necessity of saving our Children from poverty should a tragedy occur in their family.

On CNN on Tuesday morning Senator McCain continued his naivete on Social Security when he said, "They pay their taxes and right now their taxes are going to pay the retirement of present day retirees. That's why it is broken, that's why we can fix it." Is Mr. McCain referring to his crack economic team when he says, " we can fix it" or is he referring to the Republican Party that has squandered the treasure or America and destroyed her middle class. The only thing that needs fixing about Social Security, Mr. McCain is that the cap be removed, and everyone pays into Social Security at the same rate no matter how much they earn, and the bonuses of Corporate America be included as salary and is taxed at the same rate. If the cap were removed, the rate would be less. That would benefit the workers of America and have very little affect on the Corporatist that Mr. McCain so dearly wants to protect from paying their share of American Taxes.

Once again Mr. McCain has shown he has very little regard for the average American and doesn't even understand the fundamentals of the dreams and ideals of this Nation. Senator McCain's interpretation of Social Security alone precludes him from being the President of this Great Nation.
