First we have one of the head teabaggers who receives social security disability payments, and now we have a white guy living in section 8 housing threatening to kill Pelosi because she voted for healthcare. What's up with that?

A tall, hulking man who kept to himself, Giusti was not well known - or well liked - at the federally subsidized Marlton Manor where he has lived for more than a decade, said neighbor Rose Riggs.

Are you referring to people like tea party poster girl Michelle Bachmann R-MN? People like her are all in favor of subsidies that pay them big bucks. But a subsidy to anyone else is hateful socialism and has to be stamped out.

"Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) — so fond of accusing the Obama administration of foisting socialism on an unwilling America — has apparently been the recipient of about a quarter of million bucks in government handouts."

Anti-socialist Bachmann got $250K in federal farm subsidies - Glenn Thrush - POLITICO.com

First of all, it would require an understanding of the Social Security Trust Fund vs. government subsidies. Once the leftist dimwits wrap their brains around these two very different concepts, then maybe they'll understand the fallacy of comparing SS to other entitlement programs that don't require a person to pay into.

The taxes that are passed on to the final consumer. Indirect, but real.

They don't exactly know.
