Why did Bernie Madoff go to prison?
To simplify it, he talked people into investing with him, and stole their money. He took money from new investors to pay old investors. Finally there was not enough money from new investors coming in to keep the payments going. Madoff is one of the most hated men in America. He’s jailed, yet …. he did to his investors, what government has been doing to us for over 60 years with Social Security. There’s no meaningful difference except one was operated by an individual now in jail, and the other is operated by politicians who’ve voted themselves pay raises, perks, and privileges, in spite of their “theft”.
They had the gall to use our Social Security funds (a Socialist, safety net) (for PORK) — giving favors, insuring their re-election.
Is there any difference between how Social Security was run and how health care will be run? Not if one goes by their track record.
Naive Democrats trust, …. cynical tea partiers don’t! How about you? I’m conviced it’s time to dump ’em all ….. even jail ’em!
