Letter to Greedy Senator from the "Greediest Generation"

Alan Simpson is a 22-year career politician: 4 years as Wyoming’s governor (1955–1959) and 18 years as U.S. Senator from Wyoming (1979-1997). This means he collects two government pensions — from Wyoming and from the federal government.
In 2010, Simpson was appointed by Obama to co-chair his deficit commission (National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform). When the commission issued its report, Simpson compared Social Security to a milk cow with 310 million teats. This career politician who had sucked on the public teat for 22 years and will continue to suck on the public teat until he dies, has the gall to call senior citizens — who have paid into the fictitious Social Security trust fund their entire working lives — “the Greediest Generation”.
That got a response in the form of a letter from an unknown man in Montana, which is circulating via e-mail.
For once I agree with Snopes. Since the letter below is only identified as being from “an irate Montana man,” there is no way to verify its authenticity. But the problem I have with the letter isn’t just that. Why is the letter-writer anonymous? If he had put his name to it, the letter would be so much more powerful.
That said, the points he made against RINO Alan Simpson are well made.
H/t fellow Igor.

Letter From the “Greediest Generation”
“Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight.
1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole 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 ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made 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 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 YOUR debt.
To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” on
your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for
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 healthinsurance?
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 political cronies?
It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called
Congress who are the “greedy” ones.  It is you and your fellow nutcases
who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from
millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.  And for what?  Votes.  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.
