Reader: Tea Party types are wrong to think Social Security is a redistribution of wealth
Our post about this past weekend's Tax Day Tea Party in Loveland turned into a lively forum for debate about whether this grassroots movement is a good thing or a bad thing.
Here's a post from someone representing the latter point of view.
Receiving obligations like SS and Medicare that a taxpayer paid into his/her entire life is not "redistribution of wealth"..
"Redistribution of wealth" is the republican held House of Representatives' plan to privatize health care 100%, "redistributing" your..............that's YOUR.............money to the health insurance industries.
