The 'Iowa lawyer,' Bruce Braley is trying to scare Iowans with his Joni Ernst is going to ‘take away’ your Social Security rhetoric. It's typical, disingenuous, dangerous and unrealistic lies from a leftist, liberal Democrat. No surprise, there.
Here's the absurdity of Social Security and why our kids' and grandkids' lives may be destroyed by this and other government-run programs. A hypothetical couple has contributed $640,000 over their lifetime into Social Security. They will take out $1.2 to $1.6 million, depending on how long they live.
The government takes this money in and spends it. And then they turn around and borrow money and pay interest on that money to pay for these people's Social Security benefits when they come around to collect. This is the insanity of Big Government. This is the insanity of the Democratic Party's various government entitlement programs. This insanity is why our country is on the verge of collapse. This insanity is why two-thirds of the Millennials can't find a decent job, even with a college degree.
Just think, if these people had put their $640,000 into an interest-bearing savings account, they would have much, much more money to retire on and the government would not be destroying their grandkids' lives and futures.
‘Iowa lawyer’ Braley needs to demonstrate some solutions to problems, instead of creating more problems for the people of Iowa.
