@bkohatlwrote:

The average Social Security check is $12,000 a year, available at age 62, paid for by the beneficiary's FICA TAX CONTRIBUTIONS over their working life. Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan retired at 48-years-old with $85,000 a year pension immediately, fully paid for by taxpayers. Ryan and President Trump have promised to DESTROY SOCIAL SECURITY. 


All that is totally true. Anyone actually looking at the situation knew it was true years ago, and yet Ryan and Trump were ELECTED.

 

So a question for those who vote Republican: What was it that overwhelmed the fact both Ryan and Trump have pledged to destroy YOUR Social Security financed retirement and caused you to give them your vote?

Paul Ryan retired at 48-years-old with $85,000 

 

Yeah ............... but he had to work 18 hours a week on average to get that pension plus the millions in cash he walked away with. You know it's not easy walking the halls of Congress in an Armani suit and  Gucci shoes, instructing your staff to call billionaire donors for more money, reading Ayn Rand and watching FOX news.

 

It's really not fair to compare that to say a fruit picker who works 60 hours a week until they're 66 and retires with $ 12,000 a year.

 

Clearly  $ 12,000 is to much money ,  I bet a whole dollar that after workings until 66 and getting $ 12,000 a year the fruit picker doesn't pay ANYTHING  in federal income taxes, CLEARLY the fruit picker is a TAKER.

 

That's why Republicans want to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid,  the takers are getting to dependent on government handouts. 

 

The fruit pickers need to be more like Paul Ryan to make America Great Again, we should build a wall or something.
