There are no programs, no ‘trust funds’, no ‘lock boxes’. These and Obamacare are all tax schemes in which productive people are taxed today, to buy elderly and poverty votes today, and all done by force, theft, subterfuge. Newt, Mitt, GOP hacks will say and do anything. Sadly, vis a vis the GOP, Newt was with many, able a bit, a tiny bit, to retard government growth, with a popular Democrat President, and a Democrat Senate. As compared to the Dennis “Fatso” Hastert House, Trent “Hairpiece” Lott in the Senate, and George “I’m reading a high school quality history book” Bush, all Republican( snort ) era that gave us spending and debt worse than LBJ. ( Now surpassed by Obama )
No more “I can reform/manage/plan/technocrat” GOPers for me.
There was no democrat senate when Noot was speaker.
