Usually I like to mix a little analysis in with my crude abuse. But in this case I’ll just say: good job, moron.
Democrat Barack Obama said Sunday he will push for higher Social Security taxes if elected, viewing it as the best option for improving the retirement program’s finances…during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Obama said taxing more of a person’s income was the option he would push for if elected president. He objected to benefit cuts or a higher retirement age.
“I think the best way to approach this is to adjust the cap on the payroll tax so that people like myself are paying a little bit more and people who are in need are protected,” the Illinois senator said.
“That is the option that I will be pushing forward.”
Obama has tried to draw contrasts between himself and front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton on Social Security, saying on the stump and in TV ads that she has dodged tough questions about its finances.
Obama said some tough decisions will be in order because Social Security is the most important social program in the country.
“It’s not sufficient for us to just finesse the issue because we’re worried that, well, we might be attacked for the various options we present,” he said.
I’m happy to explain the numerous different ways Obama is being a moron here, if anyone isn’t familiar with them already. For now, however, I’ll just make this point: wow, he’s a moron.
