Messing with SS by a democrat is not a good thing. At all. Very disappointing to say the least. Can you say who? I'd like to look this up.

I am registered to vote, and I vote in every election.

I do not vote for oligarchs, assholes or corrupt orange clowns.

I vote for people, for humans, not deranged monsters.

I vote for Democrats.

This is a great person to have on our team. Sane, knowledgeable, respectable and for the people! Go Mr. Reich!

Meanwhile, we have a literal nutjob talking about toilets flushing and light bulbs being the wrong color. What does that say?

It's not just Medicare, Social Security, and SNAP. It's everything that government does that impedes the growth of oligarchs. That top 1/10th of 1% want more power and money, while getting everyone else to pay for the roads, bridges, airports, police, firefighters, courts, etc., they need in order to amass more wealth.

The filthy rich want everyone else to pay the costs of them getting richer. They do not want any pesky regulations getting in their way of making more profit.

Tell your neighbors. Educate the electorate.
