Your no more TEA Party than Obama my friend. No one is being cut out. If you had paid attention to what the economist were saying for years you wouldn't find yourself in this pickle blaming someone who is offering a method of corrective action. In 1955, that's not a typo, 1955, my accounting and economics professor told us that Social Security and any program designed as such would never succeed. It was a Ponzi scheme. Bernie Maddoff was a piker compared to the give away politicians in congress. 1955 was only 30 years after it started. Go back to 1935 and see the opposition remarks about Social Security, they are very telling. Telling in the way your responding now. Your statement wants someone else to pay for your inattentiveness.
