This week on The KSFO Morning Show’s Whistle-Blower Wednesday edition, we heard from a caller named Dave, in San Mateo, who brought forth the punchline of week.
Katie Green and I were discussing the financial future of Social Security, which looks grim. At the current pace the Social Security Trust Fund will be financially upside-down by 2035. This means the program would be forced to impose across-the-board cuts of 20 percent to all beneficiaries.
Adding to the problem is the fact that no one in Congress is proposing a fix.
That’s when Dave called-in.
“Dave in San Mateo, you’re on the air.”
“Yeah, Brian and Katie, I know you just said Social Security will be insolvent in 16-years, but what’s the big deal? Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says because of climate change the planet only has 12 more years, so we’ll all be dead by then.”
And then, like a perfect caller, Dave hung-up on himself.
