Campus Progress vs. Students for Saving Social Security

Campus Progress, the left-wing student organization under the umbrella of the Center for American Progress, posted this comment on social security and personal retirement accounts. What is editor Dana Goldstein's answer to the imminent SS crash? Raise taxes on the American people, of course! "rescinding Bush’s tax cuts to just the top 1 percent of earners would more than make up for the expected Social Security shortfall over the next 75 years."

Like a good "progressive", Ms. Goldstein has no problem taking money from one person and redistributing it to another person. She apparently feels like this is a fair way to fund the largest government program in the world. (Did I already mention that it is going broke in 2040?)

This is typical of Leftists. They truly believe that money doesn't belong to those who earn it, or invest it, but money belongs to the collective. Instead of offering a real solution, giving younger workers at least a CHOICE to have personal accounts, Ms. Goldstein would rather have the government steal money from some, and give it to others. She is well on her way to becoming a Democrat operative and a socialist in the footsteps of FDR himself.
