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.

"Redistribution of wealth" is the republican held House of Representatives' plan to privatize health care 100%, "redistributing" your..............that's to the health insurance industries.

Que the banjo music from Deliverance.
