Well Obama appointed him to recommend ways to deal with the deficit. So?

” Alan Simpson believes that Social Security is “like a milk cow with 310 million tits,” according to an email he sent to the executive director of National Older Women’s League Tuesday morning. Simpson co-chairs the deficit commission, which is considering various proposals to cut Social Security benefits.

Simpson’s email, which OWL chief Ashley Carson released publicly, (PDF) was sent in response to an April blog post Carson wrote for the Huffington Post. Carson criticized Simpson for repeatedly describing his Social Security opponents as “Pink Panthers,” arguing that the description had sexist connotations.

His email is peppered with exclamation points and condescension. At one point he urged Carson to read a certain graph, “which I hope you are able to discern if you are any good at reading graphs.”

Simpson concludes by implying that leading a major organization dedicated to the interests of middle-aged and elderly women is not “honest work.”

“If you have some better suggestions about how to stabilize Social Security instead of just babbling into the vapors, let me know,” he writes. “And yes, I’ve made some plenty smart cracks about people on Social Security who milk it to the last degree. You know ‘em too. It’s the same with any system in America. We’ve reached a point now where it’s like a milk cow with 310 million tits! Call when you get honest work!”

Of course now lefties are calling for his head, wanting Obama to fire him. Hell, it’s not like he has a job anyway, he was simply appointed to find ways to trim this out of control deficit which is due in large part – to you guessed it – Social Security.

No one wants to talk about it, but the fact is that the program is completely unsustainable over the long run, more so now than ever before.

“Ever-expanding Social Security Benefits and payments”.

Obama’s mandate was that “everything is on the table”, that includes, you would imagine, Social Security. Obama cannot fire Alan Simpson without losing credibility for his commissions. Lefties won’t like that, but then he’s been breaking their hearts since day one.
