Skip to comments.Graham: Reduce benefits for wealthy seniors
Posted on 01/02/2011 10:24:47 AM PST by rabscuttle385
Seniors should be older before the receive Social Security and wealthy Americans should receive less benefits across the board, says Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
He made the argument in an interview on Sunday's Meet the Press, but it's a position Graham has advocated for on the stump in South Carolina, including a 2009 stop at The Citadel with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
"What I'm going to do is challenge this country to make some hard decisions," Graham said at the time, telling the crowd of cadets, Tea Partiers, and Graham supporters that they shouldn't give Congress a pass on the tough stuff.

First, the Tea Party will fire treasonous bastards like you and your BFF!
Linda should work on reducing government employees and their benefits, including her own.
Sorry Lindsey, I don’t think “wealthy seniors” are the real problem here. Comprende?
Leave it to Graham to pick up the chant for CLASS WARFARE!
Butt, butt that might reduce HIS benefits and he certainly doesn’t want GOVERNMENT hellcare. He’s too good for that.
as God is my witness, I'll never vote conservative again!!
Let’s start by cutting the salary of congress wienies in half, you sonsa... Show some leadership you treasonous ba$tards.
Graham is a poster child for abortion. Why did his mama not do the right thing. I am anti abortion but in a few cases, exceptions should have been made.
Well there are some easy ones too. No more JUANnabie, RINO Senators.
They take your money and they promise to give it back to you.
Then they don't give it back.
So much for equal treatment under the law.
Te way scum like Graham think it was never your money to begin with.
It’s those damned chickens again . . . the political establishment is getting desperate. The day of reckoning is on the event horizon.
What about reducing Federal Pensions for Wealthy Politicians first and set an example lol I would love to see that they can start with clinton how many millions has he made?
How about all those wealthy Retired Senators why don’t they give their federal pension money up?
Screw them they forced people to pay into Social Security and it is not the wealthy (who determines wealthy anyway?)seniors fault the politicians looted the fund.
About that wealthy part with the Fed devaluing our currency and near zero interest on savings as a result and inflation they are doing their best to strip them of anything they have left as it is.
So let me get this straight....
you’ll NOT collect what you paid in to and an employer matched under either of the below scenarios:
You die before getting old enough to collect
You were too successful in helping the economy hum
Do i got this right?
Here comes that “wealthy seniors”
thing again. Is a wealthy senior one that’s scrimped and saved their whole working life to put $500,000 into a retirement fund for themselves while the governmant gave away their tax money to those who have spent their entire lifetime on welfare?
Sure Lindsay, America needs another welfare program.
Miss Lindsey can drop dead.
How low do you have to be to suggest that people who have taken risks and worked hard and saved for retirement and paid taxes their whole lives should be stripped of the social security benefits they’ve earned, just so there’s more money for irresponsible losers, bums, and parasites, as well as “crazy check kids” and other “disability” frauds?
I better get every last dime I got coming, even if only to help with my boat payments.
Drop dead, Miss Lindsey.
