Independent Pol Quote of the Day: Holy Joe--Cut SocSec to fund defense against Islamic terrists
Oh, hell, Holy Joe! You really do suck, big time.
LIEBERMAN: I want to indicate today to my colleagues that Senator Coburn and I are working again on a bipartisan proposal to secure Social Security over the long term, we hope to have that done in time. To also forward to the special committee for their consideration. So, bottom line, we can’t protect these entitlements and also have the national defense we need to protect us in a dangerous world while we’re at war with Islamist extremists who attacked us on 9/11 and will be for a long time to come. (My emphasis)
Video at the link. Lieberman actually looks a bit disoriented while speaking. Strange.
And, do note that "secure SocSec" does indeed mean cutting it.
