It only took the Obama White House a few minutes to respond to the Ryan pick along the lines of we regret that Romney has chosen to sacrifice seniors and the middle class with this VP choice. I think the comments went over the head of the Dems comic book constituency. They are lining up the wheel chairs and blue haired ladies for a group action photo at the side of the cliff to make sure it registers with their dullard constituency.Ryan is an excellent in your face choice.The Republicans just have to keep repeating the mantra that It does not affect anyone over age 55 until it registers.After a while the wheel chairs and cliffs will get old
There is a disconnect between what needs to be done and what people will vote for.
People will not vote for major cuts announced in advance, even if they don’t take effect for 10 years.
The NON-TEA-PARTY - 75% of voters - are bent on riding the current system to ultimate collapse before giving anything up.
55-and-under plans are hopelessly behind the curve and inadequate, as I said in a previous post.
But they still won’t get 30% of the vote.
As I said:
55-and-under plans are not serious. That should have been done 20 years ago.
It does nothing about todays massive deficit. It kicks the can 10 years done the road which is to say to oblivion.
Retirement needs to be raised to 70 immediately. Then there will be no new beneficiaries for 5 years.
Then in 10 years retirement will have to be redefined as unable to work and Medicare/SS will be a pure disability system for the bulk of baby boomers.
Arbitrary formulas designed to squeeze the system are unworkable as well.
They simply break systems which then require new formulas to make up the losses.
I’m a great grandmother and can’t wait for the opportunity to vote R and R!
