  •  The president and Congress get pensions. (5+ / 0-)

    Those pensions are substantial and are funded entirely with taxpayer dollars.  So what we see now is the supreme hypocrisy of people who are currently receiving handsome, taxpayer-funded salaries and who will later receive handsome, taxpayer-funded pension payments telling ordinary citizens that even minimal taxpayer-funded retirement security is beyond our government's ability to provide.

    At the barest minimum, before the president and Congress make any cuts to Social Security benefits, they should put their own pensions on the chopping block.  Most of them are so rich they'll never need the pensions anyway.
