McCain: Social Security a Disgrace

I suggest putting on welder's goggles before you read this quote, lest you become blinded by ignorance.


Americans have got to understand that we are paying present-day retirees with the taxes paid by young workers in America today. And that's a disgrace. It's an absolute disgrace, and it's got to be fixed.
- John McCain

This is the point at which I say something witty to mock him. But...he just described how Social Security works and then called it a disgrace. So maybe he just hates Social Security? Would he rather we take taxes from eldery unemployed retirees?

The crazy old coot is losing it...

Is Social Security a disgrace? Is using "young people's" taxes to pay old fucks a disgrace?

Gah, I can't even properly mock him because I don't know what he means!
