Friends of Jason Altmire: “Social Security is a Milk Cow with 310 Million Tits”

Alan Simpson: Social Security Is ‘A Milk Cow With 310 Million Tits’

Alan Simpson believes that Social Security is “like a milk cow with 310 million tits,” according to an email he sent to the executive director of National Older Women’s League Tuesday morning. Simpson co-chairs the deficit commission, which is considering various proposals to cut Social Security benefits.

Simpson’s email, which OWL chief Ashley Carson released publicly, (PDF) was sent in response to an April blog post Carson wrote for the Huffington Post. Carson criticized Simpson for repeatedly describing his Social Security opponents as “Pink Panthers,” arguing that the description had sexist connotations.

His email is peppered with exclamation points and condescension. At one point he urged Carson to read a certain graph, “which I hope you are able to discern if you are any good at reading graphs.”

Simpson concludes by implying that leading a major organization dedicated to the interests of middle-aged and elderly women is not “honest work.”

“If you have some better suggestions about how to stabilize Social Security instead of just babbling into the vapors, let me know,” he writes. “And yes, I’ve made some plenty smart cracks about people on Social Security who milk it to the last degree. You know ’em too. It’s the same with any system in America. We’ve reached a point now where it’s like a milk cow
with 310 million tits! Call when you get honest work!”

It’s unclear from Simpson’s email if he means Social Security is the milk cow or if he’s referring to America in general. A Simpson assistant responded to a HuffPost email saying that Simpson was traveling and unable to comment immediately.

Simpson’s tirade continues a pattern of erratic behavior that threatens to undermine the commission’s work. In June, he unleashed a stream of error-riddled invective on a Social Security advocate wielding a camera outside a closed-door commission meeting, leading Paul Krugman to conclude (happily) that Simpson was killing the commission.

    Although Alan Simpson is a senile clown, Jason Altmire and the corporate Democrats are planning to bleed the social security surplus that is supposed to keep the baby boomers out of poverty. The social security blood letting will go into the coffers of the banks that own Altmire.

    Have you personally told Altmire not to cut social security? Stand up for your family!

    That is so telling.

    To us Social Security is a modest safety net to keep our elderly off the streets. To the “friends of Altmire & Simpson” it’s a milk cow they want to steal.

    They are such arrogant idiots that they assume we are too.

    In order to deal with this issue of cutting SS, we have to seriously consider & counter the brain-washing that’s been administered to our young. They’ve been taught that SS won’t be there for them. Just google Social Security & the word cartoon to get visual proof of that.

    Can anyone out there draw cartoons? I’m thinking of one teaching young people to that it’s ok to let someone in a suit steal from you. Just sayin, you know.
