Eastwood may not have been funny. darn funny. He was effective.
The polls show it and the desperate spin from the left confirms it.
Do you feel lucky, punk?? Well do you?
Libbies hate old people? More lies that would fit in perfectly at the Republican National Convention.
Republicans are trying to privatize Social Security (letting seniors take all the future risk with their retirement investments while allowing financial institutions make billions in administrative fees a year, money that would otherwise go to those seniors) and turn Medicare into a voucher system (to buy less coverage than Medicare currently provides) in an era of significant inflation and during what is essentially a no-growth economy.
While Republics can proclaim, "We are trying to preserve those systems for future generations!" they then pass massive tax cuts for the super-wealthy and corporations, which is again, money that would otherwise go to Social Security and Medicare in the future.
Then ultimately, when there is no money left to fund those programs because decades of tax cuts have ravaged it, they come to the public and say "We have a plan to save these programs! We'll privatize them and you'll have something (not much, but something is better than nothing!)!"
It is deception of the highest order.
Have a nice day...
