“Tough ol Democat”

Democratic Senator of Vermont Bernie Sanders gets credit for his efforts as public servant, putting on record that he’s opposed to another attempt by the elite who-ever’s to attack social security. This time they tried to schedule benefits for retirees by 0.3 percentage points annually and use the media to cover it up. First thing that strikes me is, how many other secret policies have they cooked up to rob us. They tax us in so many ways that they’re digging in the pockets of pants we haven’t even bought yet.
Now I followed the math on this and it checks out, according to Dean Baker at Huffington post, the reduction would have amounted to a cut of 3 percent after 10 years, 6 percent after 20 years, and 9 percent after 30 years. That’s a clever trick knowing that the living expectancy has gone up when you think about it.
I have to side with Senator Bernie on another one of his views, like the Global Warming issue, taking aim at greenhouse gasses. Instead of going after old people and poor people for money he goes after the big guys. Along with Senate Environment and public works chairwoman Barbara Boxer, Senator Sanders moves to push legislation that will put a price on climate emissions. However, the other side to that is how far could something like pricing climate emissions go? Global Warming police , giving fines for old mufflers, BBQ’s and camp fires. ??? Whatever, links for more info below…
