When you see surveillance videos of some creep mugging an elderly person in an elevator or apartment lobby, the universal reaction is outrage. But when the fat cats and the ideologues want to hack away at the lifeline of Social Security, they are treated somehow as respectable, even enlightened members of the society.
We need a reality check. Attacking Social Security is both cruel and unnecessary. It needs to stop.
Of course, the overwhelming majority of the nation, including conservatives do not want to cut Social Security benefits...it just isn't felt that way amongst the Republicans in Congress and in Think Tanks, nor amongst too many Democrats in the same places. Nor, of course, amongst the Villagers who party with them.
