Best of THE SCRAPBOOK this week:
As a matter of politics, this strikes THE SCRAPBOOK as both tone deaf to real problems and condescending to women. Not to mention being a caricature of liberalism: “After years of contributing to Social Security, [Julia] receives monthly beneﬁts that help her retire comfortably, without worrying that she’ll run out of savings. This allows her to volunteer at
a community garden.”
Seriously? We’re supposed to delight in younger workers’ toiling and sweating to bankroll an actuarial blackhole so Julia can volunteer in a community garden? The reality is that without Social Security reform, which Obama has steadfastly
avoided, Julia will see Social Security benefits that help her “retire comfortably” about the time hell becomes a skating rink for disadvantaged youth.
