I watched the debate (sometimes only half listening) but one thing Biden said set me off: privatizing SS would have been a disaster. Has this man seen the current value of the S&P 500? His talking point on this is four-years out of date and wasn't right even then.

The fact is that SS is in terrible fiscal shape going forward, everything Ryan said about it is true and Biden was lying his keister off to scare older voters. Nobody is taking away your precious blood money Boomers, but for the love of God let us phase out this monstrosity for MY generation! Really, we'll take the hit so our kids and their kids aren't rendered economic slaves to us!

I just can't respect a politician who tells you to just let the government take care of you, don't try to take care of yourself, etc. It's condescending, misleading and frankly unAmerican. Biden disgusted me at that point.
