Dan Burton (R-IN): Activist Judge Rules If You Drop Medicare, You’ll Lose Your Social Security

Our long time readers will no doubt remember NotAllDum.  She says “Hi!” to all of our readers.

Anyway, she called me up to tell me that she was watching Dan Burton on C-SPAN talk about some crazy activist judge who has ruled that if you are on social security and decide to drop your Medicare, you are not only liable for any past procedures that Medicare has payed for, but you will also lose your social security!

Think about it.  For your entire life in the workforce, the government takes money from your paycheck under the guise of creating a retirement savings account for you when you get older (since you obviously need the government’s help in doing that (/sarcasm) ).  Then, when you retire, the money that you gave the government to hold for you should be yours to use, right?  Well, so far so good.

Now, some activist judge comes along and rules that just because you don’t want to use the government’s healthcare plan, all that money of yours that the government was saving for you now belongs solely to the government and you can’t touch it!

That, my friends, is highway robbery!

Anyway, I tried embedding the video from C-SPAN, but WordPress just spit it out.  So, you’ll have to click on the link below to watch it over at C-SPAN.  Sorry about that:

    We have their signatures down on paper that we will use against them in the future. I hope they keep it up because with each instance they alienate a few more of us, its only a matter of time. Of course they will squeal like pigs when that day comes.

    Cloward and Piven cuts both ways. We need a conservative C&P strategy. What that entails is taking anything and everything all the way to trial, even a traffic infraction, no deals, bury them in their own process.

    Each state has its own constitution and a judge from another state has no standing in anything but the affairs of their own state. The courts are not only in violation of US Constitution but also state constitutions as well. Crossing state lines in the commission of a crime, that is a federal offense.

    SEC. 6. Slavery is prohibited. Involuntary servitude is prohibited
    except to punish crime.

    We need to help the left in their efforts while at the same time launching an all out assault on illegal law. The left have plans but those plans will not work out the way they think they will. TEA party Americans are united and don’t attack each other when they disagree, and that is the polar opposite of the left. It is time to go on the offensive to defend ourselves.
