PostSubject: Social Security Scare Tactics?   Sat Nov 27, 2010 4:31 pm

Politico's The Arena

Nov. 24, 2010
Driving the Conversation:
Dean Baker
Co-director, Center for Economic and Policy Research :

On this Thanksgiving weekend I give thanks for the fact that the American people are so much smarter than the people who get their opinions featured in major news outlets like the Washington Post, National Public Radio, and CBS News.

Anyone who has relied on these news outlets for their information would think that the public has no choice but to accept major cutbacks in Social Security and Medicare in order to prevent national bankruptcy. These news outlets have repeatedly told people that the aging of the population leaves no alternative.

Of course this is exactly what the Wall Street elites want the public to believe. However, it is also easy to show that it is not true.

In fact every government publication shows that the projected increase in Social Security spending due to the aging of the baby boomers is relatively minor. The cost of keeping the program fully funded over its 75-year planning horizon is only a bit more than one-fourth of the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. All this information is readily available in publications from the Congressional Budget Office, the Office of Management and Budget and the Social Security Trustees Report. Yet, almost no one who relies on these news sources would have been presented with this simple fact.


Reduce...
Nor are they likely to know that all official projections show that people will be on average about 40 percent richer in 2040 than they are today. This information can also be found in all the official government sources. If our children and grandchildren are not richer than us that will be because even more of the country's wealth went to Wall Street and friends, not because of any issues of inter-generational equity.

And, the reason for the projected explosion in Medicare costs is our broken health care system, not the failings of Medicare and Medicaid. Our per person health care costs are projected to rise from more twice the level in other wealthy countries to three and four times the level. If this projection proves true, then health care costs will wreck the private economy and cause budget problems. Serious people talk about fixing health care. Our elites and the elite media talk about reducing the budget deficit and cutting the programs that the middle class depend upon.

Thankfully the public is adamantly opposed to cuts in Social Security and Medicare in spite of massive dosage of misinformation from media outlets like the Washington Post and NPR. The American public does not buy their garbage. This is making the elite very frustrated (read David Brooks NYT column from last week). It should make the rest of us very thankful this holiday season

As long as they are spending your dollars and not theirs! That is exactly why they voted in their own retirement system, because they knew they were wasting ours!!!

There are public service websites that will show you how a particular congressman votes on each issue that comes up before them. It also shows whether they voted or not! You can track what they are doing and how they are doing it! Most will seperate it out by districts and or states to give oyu some added insight. If you watch it closely you can tell which ones are in bed together!!!!

Google it and you will run across several of the sites that act as watchdogs! Generally it is run by someone htat has more time than sense and gets a kick out of finding these things!!! I also heard this afternoon that they were looking o cut the federal budget by 3.9 trillion by 2020. What the hell is the holdup and why not now! Let's start with cutting their salaries and perks and tehn we can go from there!!! I think that is one hell of an idea!

They are talking raising the retirement age, lowering medicare payoutsand some other things. They cut unemployment benefits from 99 weeks to 26. Also they say they will reduce government workers by 200,000 jobs. Raise gas taxes. There is more but I dont remember it all. It was a rough ride home today heavy rain and gusts to 60 mph, so I could not concentrate on the news very well. I drove through some 5 or 6 accidents in the 62 miles to get home.

I may just turn in my SS paperwork in March and start collecting it at 63 rather than waiting any longer. I can at least get it started prior to them raising the age and reducing the benefits. I think if it is already started you may miss out on some raises but you will not get a reduction in payments! Glad you made it home okay cause that is nasty stuff! I would hate to have to do that drive both ways every day!

It is 11 miles form my driveway to my office building in downtown Denton. On a good day I can make it in 12 minutes! On a bad day it could take 25 minutes with heavy traffic. I do not envy your driving!

I would not get out and even try it. If it was snowing and blowing cold, I would roll over and go back to sleep!!

LMAO Sometime in the future I will do the same. Maturity brings on common sense, and great excuses.
