No Such Thing as Socialsecurityandmedicare

This article makes an important point. Yes, it’s from Mother Jones, the publication that released the Romney video. And full disclosure, Mother Jones was delivered to my house pretty much my entire childhood due to my commie pinko parents.

But if you are worried that Social Security has a crazy mismatch of benefits paid vs. received, this is a good chart to consider.

As the article points out:

Generally speaking, you’re always being conned when people talk about “entitlements.” That usually means Social Security and Medicare, but they’re very different things. Social Security is fine, and will stay fine with nothing more than tweaks. Medicare is a bigger problem, and it’s the one that needs the most attention.

But that’s leftist propaganda…

    My guess is that Mother Jones didn’t show the rate of return on taxes withheld compared to a traditional blend of investments. It is very very low.
