"If it stops moving, subsidize it..."

Social Security's going bankrupt? Well, let's just expand it!

@midlifechick just returned from TownHall meeting with her US Rep. John Carter (R-TX). Representative Carter informed the crowd that talk has been bandied about Congress to appropriate EVERY state's pension plans into the bankrupt Social Security System.

She is absolutely 100% sure that she understood him correctly. If this is allowed to happen, and I am going to stress again that at this point it is just an idea that has been submitted; the US will absolutely, 100% be a banana republic, a la Argentina.
