Sharon Angle, the Team Crazy Tea Partier from Nevada, like most Tea Partiers, wants to get rid of Social Security. They are pushing some insane nonsense about its insolvency. Republicans never care about whether anything is insolvent or not. After all, they’ve been deliberately trying to drive government bankrupt for 30 years as part of an evil plan. They just use the “insolvency” thing as a ploy to cut or get rid of Social Security. When FDR put Social Security in in 1935, he was reviled by Republicans as a Communist for doing so. He made it to their #1 Pantheon of Evil for doing that. It follows that many of them, especially the latest batshit nuts incarnation, have hated it ever since. And it shows. Because they’ve been trying to get rid of it. We have a lot of supporters of US corporate capitalism on this site. Some of them call themselves liberals and even socialists. The Republican Party is the party of the corporations. They push the corporate agenda and only the corporate agenda. If Republicans are pushing to cut or junk Social Security, that is because that is what their corporate masters want. So Corporate America obviously wants to cut or get rid of Social Security. When you support US corporate capitalism, you support zeroing out Social Security. Got it?
