I paid for my own god damned retirement, thank you very much.

It's politicians doing what politicians do. It's called pandering to those who are paying for your retirement.

Please help me out here. Are you a politician or did you take this personally for some other reason?

Just about all of us retirees on this forum have financed most if not all of our retirement ourselves and many more have paid far more into Social Security than we will ever live long enough to get back.

I think the post referred to the huge retirement packages politicians receive, and not the rest of us who pay our own bills.

OOooh, someone is in a foul mood.

If you happen to be in that 3% (+or-) of politicians who are NOT actively on the take, then with all sincerity possible, you have my apology.

Beyond that, my statement stands.

Politicians all across the country have sold themselves at bargain basement prices and will do everything within their powers to guarantee the cash keeps flowing. If that means shipping an asset like Mr. Chapman south of the border where he can be treated worse than his nickname, whats one American citizen more or less if it keeps everyone friends and keeps the retirement well funded?
