Verum Serum is perfectly correct: we either have a cash reserve of 3.2 trillion in our Social Security lockbox, or we do not (we do not, by the way). If we did (we do not), then the President’s bluff of not issuing Social Security checks would have been even more stupid than it first seemed. Since we do not have that reserve, it is irresponsible for the Democrats to pretend that the money is there – but that’s actually an incidental point; the true point is that Jan Schakowsky can’t have it both ways. She has to pick one narrative, and live with the consequences.
But it’s fun to watch her try to squirm off of the hook. Yeah, call your hosts ignorant some more there, Jan. That’ll shut them up… no, no it did not.
