characterization of Social Security as a "Ponzi scheme" doesn't appear to be a problem for most Republicans, according to a new Gallup poll.
The survey, released on Friday, finds that the harsh words repeatedly used by Perry to define his stance on the program are largely non-issue for members of his party.
Gallup's report explains.
In a GOP presidential debate held last week, which was Perry's first of the election season since announcing his candidacy, the Texas governor stood by a charge he makes in his book describing Social Security as a "Ponzi scheme." In taking aim at the 80-year-old program he argued, "You cannot keep the status quo in place."
Most Seniors depend on Social Security and Medicare or they would be on the street.
How can this make sense? Why would a group of people vote in a manner that is against their most fundamental interest?
Is it that important for a person who identifies themselves as a Republican to vote Republican even when it is completely against their own interest? Seniors - the call is to you.
Where has the compassionate conservative gone? To vote for assisted suicide versus dying in the streets?
