These is an urgent message via telephone conversation with @midlifechick, who is otherwise occupied at the moment. She asked me to post this info ASAP.
@midlifechick just returned from TownHall meeting with her US Rep. John Carter (R-TX). Representative Carter informed the crowd that talk has been bandied about Congress to appropriate EVERY state’s pension plans into the bankrupt Social Security System.
She is absolutely 100% sure that she understood him correctly. If this is allowed to happen, and I am going to stress again that at this point it is just an idea that has been submitted; the US will absolutely, 100% be a banana republic, a la Argentina.
Folks need to get a heads-up on this and be prepared if this does indeed come down the pike.
Please pass along this info to tweeps, FB, family & friends.
I would like to say that I am stunned, but given the track record of this Administration I guess I shouldn’t be.
“Stunned” doesn’t really seem to cover it, does it?
