I didn't even know that Federal and State employees are not required to participate in the fraudulent Social Security Ponzi scheme. Jay Tea points to an article at The American suggesting Federal and State employees should be required to participate in Social Security. As discussed in the article, it's debatable whether such an infusion can save the collapsing scheme. But as a matter of principle, there should be no question whatsoever that Federal employees, especially Congress and everyone associated with them, must participate. Doing so might be the only reason they ever have for trying to establish solvency. Forcing us peon private sector folks to participate in Social Security is, first of all, no different in principle than forcing us to purchase health insurance. Second, it's identical to Obama sending his kids to private school, as every parent would like to do, while stripping that freedom from parents whose kids attend D.C. schools. It is the perfect, ultimate hypocrisy. And, it's par for the course.
