Social Security and the Tea Party

Can you live without your Social Security? I wonder how many Americans get a Social Security check every month.

Benjamin Disraeli’s thought has relevance when it comes to today’s Republican fringe and Tea Party radicals: A conservative government is organized hypocrisy.
