    They should have done that on our backs rather than cut subsidies to Dole pineapple, a profitable company? they should have cost future retirees 13% rather than ask mega-profitable corporations to forego a percentage of their corporate welfare??? Fuck me running, I give up.

      It was gooderservice who said same way we paid for Part D - which was paid for out of the general fund without increasing revenue. I don't think that is a good idea.

      I did agree with triv33 who suggested cutting corporate welfare to pay for it. Which is what you are suggesting, I think. Fuck me running too, I don't understand why you are suggesting that I thought the same as Part D is how it should be paid for. I think Part D is a POS, though is improving under the ACA but still needs a lot more improvement.

      Or are you saying that it should be paid for the same as Part D?

        what do you want me to say to you? That I believe SS would have died without the CUTS they made? And yes, they were CUTS. No, it wouldn't have.

        You want to see SS preserved for the future so that it will be there for your husband and son? Fight the bullshit now.

        There always seems to be money for weapons, for subsidies to industries that don't need one extra cent and for every pork barrel pos project coming down the pike--but squadoodle for us poor shlubs just eking it out week to week and oh! isn't it a crisis! One we need to handle, right NOW!!!!!, it's not. These jokers in DC want to strengthen SS? Give us a WPA or STFU.
