The 1/30 Register did a brief outline of outgoing Senator Harkin’s idea to propose a “new private pension system”. My God, how stupid does he think we are? What he is suggesting is another pot of money for government to swoop down on and snatch, and drop an I.O.U. into.
We already did that with Social Security. Now he thinks we are going to fall for it again? Not pay survivors, not pay lump sum, not have anything in it but a government “promise” to pay? Good night! Iowans are pretty stupid though, we put him in office for 40 years.
