Cantor admits Social Security and Medicare ‘aren’t going to be there’ when he retires


Source: The Raw Story

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) admitted Sunday that he didn't expect Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare to be around when he retires.

"What we have said is this: We'll protect today's seniors and those nearing retirement, but for the rest of us, all of us, who are 54 and younger, I know the programs are not going to be there for me when I retire," Cantor told Fox News' Chris Wallace. "They can't," he added.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) unveiled last week the Republican plan to cut $4 trillion from federal spending over ten years, including deep cuts to entitlements. Medicaid alone would be cut by $760 billion.

"The Medicaid reductions are off the baseline," Cantor explained. "So what we're saying is allow states to have the flexibility to deal with their populations, their indigent populations and the health care needs the way they know how to deal with them."

As if he cares. He'll have a six figure congressional pension.

Congress does not pay into SS. Congress has their own retirement plan which is completely separate from SS. It pays much more and SS would be considered as peanuts or chump change to those assholes.

If it won't be there for those under 54, then isn't taxing us for SS and medicare considered Taxation w/o Representation?

Isn't Taxation w/o representation illegal?
