Democrats are making a pre-election pitch to give Social Security recipients a one-time payment of $250, part of a larger effort to convince senior voters that their party, and not Republicans, will best look out for the 58 million people who get the government retirement and disability benefits.Not only are we close to Election Day, but the Democrats second favorite Holiday (Halloween) is around the corner, because Nancy's putting on her mask and trying to scare seniors into voting for her party. Nancy won't tell you that the privatizing Socialist Security plan applies only to younger workers and it is their choice (I thought liberals were "pro-choice").
The $250 check is meant to make up for a second year without a cost-of-living increase due to low inflation.
President Barack Obama has urged Congress to approve the $250 payment. House and Senate Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid say they will bring up the legislation when lawmakers return for the lame-duck session in November. In the meantime, Democrats are using the proposal to augment their campaign pitch that Republicans would undermine Social Security.
"Instead of helping seniors," Pelosi's office said, "Republicans, backed by their allies on Wall Street, are threatening to privatize and cut Social Security, just as they tried to do under President Bush."
For all the Democrats' fear mongering of seniors that the mean old GOP is going to kick them out of their homes and cut Socialist Security, keep in mind it was DEMOCRATS who voted not only to cut $500 BILLION from Medicare to pay for Obamacare, but blocked Republican efforts to prevent those cuts from happening.
Nancy, you're so full of crap the stench can be smelled all the way from San Franstinko. Two hundred and fifty dollars won't buy seniors a muffler for their car, let alone make up the money your party cut out of Medicare.
