It appears that everyone that is currently receiving Social Security benefits will be a loser in the fiscal cliff agreement.


One of our rather famous Prime Ministers (well OK he wasn't that famous but he lasted ten years in the position and happened to be PM when Paul Martin was Minister of Finance) once said in a speech that if you wanted to get the economy moving find ways to give money to the poor. "Rich people just save it, poor people spend it right away".

Just a thought but maybe that would work better than handing it out to the banksters who blew up the system in the first place?
