This is why America cannot have nice things

(or even semi crappy underfunded things that at least provide a basic service)

LIEBERMAN: I want to indicate today to my colleagues that Senator Coburn and I are working again on a bipartisan proposal to secure Social Security over the long term, we hope to have that done in time. To also forward to the special committee for their consideration. So, bottom line, we can’t protect these entitlements and also have the national defense we need to protect us in a dangerous world while we’re at war with Islamist extremists who attacked us on 9/11 and will be for a long time to come.

Sorry grannies, we need 1000 of your pensions to buy another missile. Keep on working, the war machine needs your social security.

    You know, if Obozo would quit starting wars, then maybe the defense budget could be cut.

      Perhaps, I doubt I would hear a Republican agree with that though.
