*Mexikaresistance.com Note: Just a quick reminder: Ron Paul is an idiot and a hypocrite. While it may be "trendy" to support him, he is no different than the rest of the politician scum who run this country.In what has to be the most hypocritical admission of 2012, Ron Paul freely confirmed that he receives Social Security checks but thinks the rest of us shouldn’t be able to.
During a Tuesday morning appearance on Morning Joe on MSNBC, Paul admitted that despite his constant calls for abolishing the popular Social Security program, he himself has been receiving and accepting monthly Social Security checks in addition to his government salary. When challenged on his apparent hypocrisy, Paul claimed that it’s perfectly acceptable for him to get Social Security while trying to force every other American out of the program.
RON PAUL: “I want young people to opt out of Social Security. In my more pragmatic stands on how we get to the place I want to go, actually I’m probably offering a program where some of these programs that we have taught people to be so dependent on, I would probably preserve them longer than others because we are going to lose them because of the bankruptcy that is coming.”
SAM STEIN: “Are you on Social Security. Do you get Social Security checks?”
RON PAUL: “I do.”
SAM STEIN: “You just told younger generations that they should wean themselves off of this social contract but you haven’t done it yourself. You’re not the wealthiest man in Congress, I’m not saying that. But you have enough means to take care of yourself in retirement. Shouldn’t you provide an example?”
RON PAUL: “No, I think the programs are so designed, just as I use the post office too. I use government highways. I do that too. I use the banks. I use the Federal Reserve system. But that doesn’t mean you can’t work to remove this. The same way on Social Security, I am trying to make a transition. I personally don’t see any inconsistency in that.”
