I have the nagging feeling that we will witness a claudication of monumental proportions and thus the analogy with Munich 1938 will not be an exaggeration.
Britain and France surrendered Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany in the Munich pact of 1938.
President Obama already agreed to reduce 2% in the social security tax in December 2010 – a deficit enhancing measure. He will probably agree now to a reduction in benefits. Is the president weaseling into phasing out social security slowly – choking off revenue first and curtailing payments later, until social security becomes irrelevant for most Americans, and then it can be eliminated altogether?
I’ll be damned if I vote for this man again.
