The dumbest dude in the senate (and that’s sayin’ something) RoJo is determined to rescue his latest Social Security talking point from ridicule. As you may recall, RoJo is facing serious blowback after suggesting last week that Social Security and Medicare be eliminated as federal entitlement programs and instead become classified as discretionary spending. Imagine having to depend upon the kindness of Mitch McConnell for your retirement? The mind boggles. It also screams in terror.
Anyway, he’s back to talking ‘bout Social Security and his newest brain fart in what to do with it:
Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who faces a tough reelection battle in Wisconsin against Democratic Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, said during a Wednesday campaign stop that Social Security was “set up improperly” and that the program’s funds would have been better off invested in the stock market.
“What I want to do is I want to actually look at the problem and try and start fixing it,” the senator said, while also tying it to the current economic slowdown, a GOP talking point going into the midterm elections….
“I want workers here to take care of an elderly population, which I’m now part of, okay?” he told the audience. “Government and politicians have mishandled this horribly.”
What RoJo is neglecting to mention is that he has never worried where the next cheese sandwich is coming from, as his net worth is around $39-45 million Ameros.
