Asshole Of The Month

Rick Santorum claims he has figured out what's caused the Social Security shortfall.

It's abortion.

Seriously. He thinks that if abortion had not been legal for the past bunch of decades then all the extra people who would have been born would have been making enough contributions to save the system.

"The reason Social Security is in trouble is that we don’t have enough workers to support the retirees.

“Well, a third of of all the young people in America are not in America today because of abortion — because one-in-three pregnancies end in abortion.”

Feel the rage.

Because, you know unwanted children would all end up being tax paying responsible members of society. None of them would end up in prison or in situations like foster homes that would end up costing the government far more than they would ever contribute.

And, none of them would have any health care or other problems that would put a strain on the system. And the women who gave birth to them wouldn't have lower economic opportunities and therefore contribute less to the system.

What a turdbucket.
