  •  privatizing SS... i keep asking: (0+ / 0-)

    does anyone remember when they wanted to initially privatize SS and the figure was 700 bn?

    with public opposition, it didn't happen. instead 700 bn found its way into wall street via the bailout.

    i'm pretty sure they knew the economy was going to freefall and were looking for cash flow.

    but something better happened: they got away with the bailout, fronted by Dems, and they kept going.

    btw: I think most of us understand the money taken from our paychecks for SS is invested in gov't securities... but it's like depositing money in banks: now we learn once we fork over the money, it really doesn't belong to us anymore.

    in the short term, for many of us, this is about our money. in the long run, it is about our liberty. control the debt. control food production. control water.
