(This is a re-post with an update at the end)
John McCain has called our Social Security system a “disgrace”. With this in mind, McCain has absolutely no problem accepting his $1,930/month Social Security check. It doesn’t matter that Cindy McCain earned $6 million in 2006 and is worth over $100 million. John McCain still feels the need to accept his Social Security check. He does have the option of declining Social Security. Once again, another rich person looking for tax
shelters relief and government handouts.
Be sure to read more about it here.
Wonder if this $6 million income for 2006 and McCain’s Social Security checks are the reason that Cindy McCain doesn’t want to share her 2007 federal tax information. It wouldn’t look good for McCain if everyone knew how he gladly accepts his government handouts, including tax payer paid health care while his wife makes millions upon millions of dollars while at the same time McCain wants to privatize Social Security and does not support single payer health care for Americans. He refers to single payer health care as “socialism”. However, it’s not socialism when he accepts health care paid for by the very Americans that he believes doesn’t deserve government sponsored health care.
So many Republic hypocrites.
Here’s John McCain voicing his opinion on Social Security.
UPDATE: Just think, if our Social Security was privatized as John McCain would like it to be, all our Seniors would have lost a great deal of money on September 15, 2008. They would have nothing and Social Security would be gone. John McCain doesn’t have to worry about Social Security. His wife has millions of dollars and he collects a government pension for his time in the service and he will be entitle to another government pension when he retires from Congress.
John McCain does not feel your pain.
