Alan Simpson: Social Security Is Like a "Milk Cow with 310 Million Tits!"

Here Simpson is berating a Social Security advocate:

The word "unfit" comes to mind:

Liberals and groups in favor of preserving Social Security are calling for the co-chair of President Obama's deficit commission to resign after he said in an e-mail that Social Security is "a milk cow with 310 million tits."

In a letter responding to criticisms against him from a group representing older women, former Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson wrote that he has "spent many years in public life trying to stabilize" Social Security. However, he wrote, "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!"

Paints quite a picture, Al! Gee, that wasn't sexist at all. The visual is a little much, though, is it not?

What would Former Half-Gov FreeSpeech McLaurApologist say?! I know! "Don’t retreat…reload! Silencing isn’t American, not fair."

He's sorry though, see?

UPDATE: Wednesday 3:08 p.m. - Alan Simpson apologized Wednesday for describing Social Security as "a milk cow with 310 million tits!" in an email to OWL executive director Ashley Carson.

Simpson's apology comes as pressure is mounting on the former Wyoming Senate Republican to resign his co-chairmanship of President Obama's deficit commission, which is considering cuts to Social Security.

Much more reaction here.

So if pressure hadn't been mounting, then what?

Let's see Simpson get out there with a public apology to the rest of us.  Or maybe he'll just go on Larry King Live and act petulant.

    Especially in the case of SS and Medicare that money is ours, it was never the Government's except in the position of care taker.
    This is not tax revenue for the government to control, it is direct deposit to savings from our pay checks.

    The commission's job is to fix it so we get our retirement money that we deposited with the government.
    Their job is not to take it away from us.

    As much as they restrict benefits, the more retirees will have to live off welfare and Medicaid and the more money they will need to put into those systems.

    These walking egos think it is their money to use, we just need to make sure that they get a slap down reminder now and again

    In order for Obama's commission to function bilaterally the chair or chairs of the commission must either be neutral, or be of like mind with Obama. And every member of the commission must be open minded and willing to compromise. Other wise the commission will fail to reach consensus, or it is just a PR trick for a decision already made bethink closed doors.

    If the commission is to reach a bilateral decision, Simpson is a total fail. He is not open mined and is not neutral.
    If the decision has already been make behind closed doors, then Simpson has already announced it and the commission can disband, save some tax money and go home in disgrace.

    Since the majority of people on SS are women, and the number of people on SS living in poverty is an even greater proportion of women, to have some one so full of hate toward women, especially older women on such a commission is unbelievably bad decision making.

    Yeah, this coming from a man who has been sucking off the public tit for most of his adult life. So tired of the these politicians who are some of the biggest abusers of our tax money always going after the little guy. This hypocrite ought to resign from the commission and go enjoy his retirement off the tax payers expense.
