Posted on 12/03/2012 5:08:25 PM PST by Olog-hai
Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D.-Texas) said last week that Republicans are being frivolous when they talking about reforming Social Security as a means toward fixing the federal governments fiscal problems because Social Security is solvent.
According to Social Securitys trustees, the program has operated in the red each of the last two years.
Who wants to make a fuss about Social Security when it's solvent? she asked on Friday. And then who wants to make a fuss about Medicare when it's solvent until 2024?

Pay no attention to this silly person.
I want pictures of her constituents.
I also want to see her G.E.D and some proof that this bimbo can read and write.
You know. There really should be a test that a politician must take and pass before they allowed anywhere near Washington. It should also include a “wiz quiz” to check for drugs.
The Crack Caucus says this solvent thing every time the issue is discussed.
In fact, they are moron enough to believe that there is more than enough money for everything. Delusional. We’ve been broke for quite some time.
I think they really swallow their verbal diarrhea, too.
Just raise the age to 75 years of age and there will be fewer people to pay off!
“Forgive me for being puckish, but everyone here who disclaims the label of “entitlement” for Social Security always say they paid more into the system than they got out. Were that universally true, Social Security would be solvent. In fact, it would be more than solvent - how much more, I leave to the spreadsheet wizards. “
Quite true, but I was not “allowed” to “opt out” of “Social Insecurity” when I started working or I would have more money today in retirement than I could spend. The other fact is that the Congress has, year after year, piled on “additional” but unfunded benefits to be paid to people who haven’t contributed a dime. The Congress is full of “Monty Halls” who are all just saying “come on down” to everyone with no real thought as to how the whole mess will be paid for. Face it, nearly all the governments of the world are broke or soon will be. Then, there will be no place to run. Then what?
I want pictures of her constituents.
Why? You already know what they look like.
Obamacare will solve the problems of Social Security.
Get sick after 70 and you are on your own.
Rationing and the Blue Pill will soon lower the average age of death in the United States.
Dang, just go away already!
Sheila is MARS struck ... still looking for the American flag she wondered about being on Mars...her brain is in a fog
They will tell you with a straight face that SS is "fully funded" and the IOUs sitting in the imaginary lock box in the sky have the "full faith and credit of the United States" behind them.
Stupid is as stupid does
Who wants to make a fuss about the sanity of this congressional joke?
It’s no joke. The stupid bitch is still in congress and continually gets re-elected. That’s a crime against America and sanity.
Let’s send her to Guam so her weight will tilt the island over. And she can take Rep. Johnson with her.
You are assuming SJL has a brain - silly you. Periodically one of her braids gets wound a little tight causing her mouth to remain open resulting in relentless spilling of idiotic prattle.
Actually she is one of the brightest people in the Congressional Black Caucus.
This lee moron is insufferable. If only her ilk had been aborted...
She has to be one of the most stupid people in Congress. And she represents the people who elected her perfectly.
Same mentality as those who say ‘Change the oil? Why it still runs.’ Geesh
