McLame volunteers to receive Social Security:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Although Republican presidential candidate John McCain has called Social Security "a disgrace," he still cashes his own retirement check every month.
McCain's 2007 tax return shows Social Security benefits of $23,157 for the year, an average of $1,929.75 a month. He said he started receiving the payments "whenever I was eligible."
"Americans have got to understand that we are paying present-day retirees with the taxes paid by young workers in America today," he said. "And that's a disgrace. It's an absolute disgrace, and it's got to be fixed."
So, after spending every minute of his life feeding at the public trough- without the slightest notion of how his benefits were provided him- he calls this intergenerational contract that is Social Security disgraceful. And that's not bad enough, after marrying a multi millionaire, and while still making around four times the average income of the people who pay him, he still takes the 23,157 dollars every year for himself.
McCain has received everything from the American people and has more than the vast majority of us- yet he still sucks at the Social Security tit that he thinks is so disgraceful.
And he wants to "fix" Social Security by throwing scads of OUR money at the same financial industry that just had an equity-gutting free-for-all.
Aren't we done with Teh Stupid yet?
