Rand messes up again.Submitted by Spirit of '76 on Thu, 11/01/2012 - 15:44
You know, I don't like the pile on Rand Paul that's been going on, but this on the other hand is criticism that I think everyone can agree with.
I found it here....
"Supposed Libertarian Rand Paul is advocating increasing the age of eligibility to receive SS benefits "...., BUT.... " said nothing about letting the younger generation opt out of SS – which many of us would love to do, even to the extent of agreeing to forgo all future benefits in return for not having to 'contribute' any more from here on out."
Opting out was one of Ron Paul's best ideas ever. It resonated with Republicans, Independents, Democrats, young, old, etc. And why? Because it's so obvious, common sensically, pro-freedom.
So, who advised Rand Paul against doing this? This is an EXTREME disappointment. Rand Paul will see zero dollars in contributes from me until he addresses this.
