Alan Simpson on Social Security

I have no words for this e-mail to OWL by Alan Simpson on Social Security:

I’ve made some plenty smart cracks about people on Social Security who milk it to the last degree. You know ‘em too. It’s the same with any system in America. We’ve reached a point now where it’s like a milk cow with 310 million tits! Call when you get honest work!

There are plenty who have weighed in, some of them major organized voting groups such as AARP. Alan Simpson also has other views regarding “the federal deficit” not worth exploring except he still is co-chair on the Deficit Commission.

Update: Mr. Simpson’s apology is here…

“I can see that my remarks have caused you anguish, and that was not my intention.”

Update 2: Ms. Carson’s response is here…
