Well, the Obots can’t say they weren’t warned about Obama. We told them he wasn’t a liberal. It looks like he is onboard with tinkering with Social Security. If I were him and actually *cared* about the economy, I would back away from Social Security reeeeal slllloow like. It’s not just a retirement fallback, it’s an insurance policy against risk. Without it, how many Americans in the past 6 decades wouldn’t have changed jobs or started their own businesses? There are too many short term thinkers with tunnel vision where social security is concerned. Social Security makes entrepreneurship and creativity possible.
But leave it to Obama to want to have a “fiscal responsibility” conference to discuss how we might cut benefits for those under 55. That would include yours truly who just lost a whopping amount in her 401K. Yep, at this rate, I’ll be working until the day I die. If I’d known that, I would have demanded more vacation time and higher wages. Leave it to the well heeled to pull the rug out from under you when it’s too late to get back on your feet.
So, how do we raise the alarm? And how do we coordinate our messages with the people who scorned us last year but are having a case of buyer’s remorse now? Stayed tuned for Conflucian’s Say tonight at 10PM EST to find out if we have any answers or just more questions.
