As the prophecy foretold.

Honestly you didn't have to be a prophet to see this coming when they passed the massive giveaway to the rich. You didn't even have to be particularly insightful or smart.

That's right folks, we NEED to cut social security so you can get into heaven. If you cash that check it's like taking money from Lucifer himself.

But I'm right with the Lord. Send the money to me to be cleansed and you'll be rewarded

A real Christian would forfeit those entitlements from the evil, Satanic, socialist pyramid scheme.  Pat's got God's grace - that will take care of him.  His wealth is evidence that God favors him.

I'd be upset, but it's not like there would be social security when I hit retirement age anyway.

The gays beat up my dad and kicked my puppy! So drink your powdered protein milkshake for bench-pressing Buicks in the name of Jesus.

Aside from the blood diamonds, doesn't he realize most of his donations come from social security checks? Methinks he did not think this all the way....oh right. Conservative and thinking don't mix.

Where does he think the money that old, demented Christians send him comes from?

LOL.  You don't explain the con to your marks, sillies.

SOCIAL SECURITY IS FUNDED BY FICA

SOCIAL SECURITY IS NEVER IN DEBT, THE ONLY THING THAT CAN HAPPEN IS REDUCED PAYOUTS

I guess old people need to start dying off faster.

Lead the way, Pat.

Solution - ditch Social Security payouts and make one simple rule:  If you make it to age 100, the government will cut you a check for $500,000.00 tax free.  Problem solved!

Especially since most people will now have to work into their 90's or until they're dead, whichever comes first.  More money in, less money out!

Social security is not an entitlement since it is paid by employees and employers and social security and the deficit are not connected so one has nothing to do with the other.   So please Pat, keep talking about something you know nothing about.

Take from social security paid for by working people and give to the rich. That was always the plan. Just remember, feudalism is not capitalism, no matter what the churches and Republicans say.

I am becoming convinced that this douchebag will live forever.  Dear Lord, please take him home.

Social Security is self-funded you stupid farking arsehole! In fact, the SS fund owns most of the US debt.

Good thing the vast majority of his fan base isn't on social security.

Obligatory in any Pat Robertson thread:
Is Pat Robertson a false prophet? "Mitt Romney will win the presidential election!"

Decrepid old con-man says we have to cut social security.  But not for him, of course.  He'd better keep getting his money, dag-nabbit.

Hey Pat! That you're still breathing is all the proof I'll ever need that the god you're selling isn't real.

Not current recipients though, Robertson mentions raising the retirement age for younger folks.  Old people are very willing to sacrifice the younger people to maintain their current benefits.

Blind and disabled individuals receive SS.  Some from birth.  That is who he really means.

SS also covers death benefits in some cases, right?

I dated a girl in HS whose dad (an Air Force O4*) died when she was 13. I'm pretty sure she and her brothers all got SS checks until they turned 18. Mom would have gotten a check as well, but I think that came from the Captain's AF pension or something else.

* O5 after a posthumous promotion, but I think etiquette says you refer to them by the highest rank they got while alive

Pat Robertson has always come across to me as Yoda's paler, dumber brother who just won't die.

It has to be mentioned everytime we talk about raising the retirement age, but if you do, you create a lost generation. If you raise it 5 years, you will have 5 years of young people struggling to find work.

How about the wars, offshoring jobs, constantly cutting taxes for the wealthy corporations, crony capitalism, declining tax base due to the above.  How about tax exemptions for false prophets, Pat?

Pat Robertson's plan is called Abortion for the Elderly.
