But never cut Social Security!

Freepers' ideologic lack of consistency is never more evident than when it comes to Social Security. Having satisfied themselves that this entitlement is legitimate because they paid into it (actuaries bedamned!), Freepers are then content to complain that the government isn't increasing it's spending on them fast enough:

uncitizen blames Muslims fleeing war in Europe:
The old people must suffer so that the “refugees” can benefit.
Kit cat wants her inflation adjustment, damnit!
This crap about NO inflation just makes me crazy!!!! Do these idiots shop for groceries??? EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING has shot waaaay up beef is outrageous, chicken ridiculous, what the hell bubble are these people living in????
Buckeye McFrog thinks this is just Obama playing old folks for suckers:
This is by design.

They are doing it to build a constituency for the Dems “Tax Wall Street and Expand Social Security” meme next Fall.

Of course people will conveniently forget that it was a Democrat President who stiffed them 3 times in 6 years.
Hell, they’ll likely blame George W. Bush for it.
tumblindice knows all that separates him from a peasant is his right to the government dole:
No money for me or thee, but we’ve got lots of money for the illegals and muslim invitees.

The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.
Michelle “Vacay” Obama

Or

The truth is, fellow peasants, in order to afford transforming our beloved country into a dangerous 3rd world ****hole, you are going to have to put off retirement & work a lot harder for a lot longer ... you didn’t (and won’t) earn it anyway.
Stentor knows those on social security are the backbone of the middle class:
The gutting of the middle class continues. The banks haven’t quite stolen everything yet. They’ll be going NIRP very soon. I expect them to hire shakers by the time they’re done; Big guys who’ll grab you by the ankles and shake you upside down to get the change out of your pockets.
Gaffer has been spending all his time trying to squeeze the maximum out of his entitlements he can:
I’ve been on it since January 2015. It seems they spend their time trying to find ways to take away what I get from SS for any reason they can. They really, really hate those of us out here who contributed the maximum SS OASDI payments (for me, as long as they put a cap on it) because the payout each month is too high in their estimation.
Between her federal entitlements and state government pension, 3D-JOY is just scraping by!
Retired 1984...imagine the inflation since then...we just tighten the belts and wear suspenders to keep up!! LOL No interest on savings in so long $ are now extinct.

Time for more belt tightening. New York State pension went up $3!! PARTY TIME!!!
patriot08 copypastes some anti-Muslim stuff, so you know who to blame for social security being too low:
Our seniors must starve on social security, our vets can't get proper medical care.

The average American hasn’t a CLUE how much of our tax money Obama has sent down Muslim sh*t holes while slashing the military, CUTS MEDICARE refuses a raise for our seniors and vets.

BILLIONS FOR JIHAD! Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee. It gives billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies. http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/1...
maxwellsmart_agent is sure this is come kinda black thing:
Every other president didn’t try to steel from the elderly to fund money for Africa and other places. If you’ve been watching where this administration has been putting new money, you would be sickened to read that there is nothing for Social Security.
County Agent Hank Kimball is nowhere near old enough to apply to SS, but he's already slavering after getting his fair share like some kinda racist black stereotype:
I’m 55. Between myself and my employer, we’ve contributed just over $300,000 in SS (NOT including Medicare) in my career. According to the projections on the website, if I work to age 70 I will get......about $42K/year.

IF I work another 15 years - which I do NOT plan to do - that assumption is based on a total contribution over my life to that point of about $500,000. Give or take.

SO...if I work to 70, I’ll get back what I put in over a 50 year career with ZERO interest - if I make it to age 82.

Yes, I know half of that wss “contributed” by my employer. I look at that as my money...most of it anyway.

Some program they’ve got there.

  1. 3d-joy is full of crap..said she retired in '84 and a recent post she mentioned she just turned 80..that means she retired when she was 50 or so. ta da state or fed gov't employee.

    The bullshit part is cost of living. My uncle retired in 1988 at age 53-state employee..and he gets regular cola adjustments and he is not hurting. He always mentioned he was on the gravy train state job and he only had a low level job-HS grad only

    Anyone else notice how many freepers held state or fed gov't jobs and not militatry but civilian jobs.

    They got theirs so screw everyone else.

    1. I don't resent people for having a good retirement. The problem with freepers comes when they attack others for wanting that which they have.

    2. The perpetual problem with SS (and for once, it isn't only an FR problem) is people spouting nonsense about having "paid in" like it was some sort of investment or savings account.

      It is a tax to pay for the pensioners of today, not an investment for those of tomorrow.

    1. What a maroon. Besides the stupidity of using modern sensibilities to call someone who lived 14 centuries ago a pedophile, they don't even know that Mohammed's third wife was 7 years-old.
