This is the exact quote clipped from an email that was forwarded to me from a friend. I felt it worth discussion here.
I believe many here can agree regardless of party affiliation, that the condemnation of Congress as a whole is justified.
My opinion of Congress is that it has been instrumental in the reduction of our national identity and status from a once great nation
to a welfare state in the last 50 years. We are a nation divided, no longer united.

"Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming, Co-Chair of
Obama's deficit commission, calls senior citizens the
Greediest Generation as he compared "Social Security” to a
Milk Cow with 310 million teats.
Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana ...
I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!
"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!!!
1. As a career politician, you have been on the public
dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.
2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS
(since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).
3 My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other
Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing
account for decades until you political pukes decided to
raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero
losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and
turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make
Bernie Madoff proud.
4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie
Brown, you and "your ilk" pulled the proverbial football away
from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and
moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age,
67. NOW, you and your "shill commission" is proposing to
move the goalposts YET AGAIN.
5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying
into Medicare from Day One, and now "you morons" propose to
change the rules of the game. Why? Because "you idiots"
mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that
you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.
6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying
income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to
increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you "incompetent
bastards" spent our money so profligately that you just kept
on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come
to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off
To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for
calling "bull@!$%#" to your incompetence. Well, Captain
Bull@!$%#, I have a few questions for YOU:
1. How much money have you earned from the American
taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?
2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic
political career, and how much are you receiving in annual
retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?
3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided
4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits
are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction
proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your
It is you, Captain Bull@!$%#, and your political co-conspirators
called Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you
and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America
and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal,
patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes and your job and
retirement security at our expense, you lunk headed, leech.
That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for
the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers.
You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.
And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch. NO,
I did not stutter.”
