Straight Talk for Seniors On Social Security

Posted December 12th, 2011 by Iron Mike
“Who pays for a 1-year benefit
with a 10-year borrowing scheme?”
  A faithful RRB team member thought seniors should hear this.

Republican Senator Mark Kirk pushes back at liberal reporter [Lisa Mascaro LA Times] – discusses the Obama word game around continuing the ‘tax holiday’ for another year vs. funding Social Security.

Kirk admits the Republican Conference is divided.  Doesn’t want to use the European retirement model of paying for retirements on borrowed money.  Also some straight talk on Iran and the Keystone XL.

Note the absence of hyperbole and emotion-driven arguments from the Senator.
