Breathless liberals cry 'hypocrite' over Ron Paul's collection of Social Security benefits

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” today, perennial presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul admitted that he receives Social Security checks, but wants young people to be able to opt out of the system.


It didn’t take long for accusations of hypocrisy to explode from the left side of the Twitterverse:


Yawn. Liberals never screech and rant when left-wing millionaires demand higher tax rates, but decline to pay more voluntarily.

Ron Paul is wrong about a lot of things, but is this one of them?

Paul had no choice but to pay into the Social Security system and now he’s taking the money that was promised to him. An unreformed Social Security system simply won’t be viable when today’s young people reach retirement age. Liberals seem to believe Social Security is funded by unicorns and rainbows, but there’s no pot of gold at the end of this one.

Wanting to honor the federal government’s commitment to the elderly while allowing young taxpayers the freedom to opt out of an increasingly depleted system isn’t hypocrisy. It’s common sense.
