Pelosi: ‘Social Security Recipients Are Just A Burden On Society’

The truth is right in front of you

It’s no secret that the Democrat Party wants to eliminate the senior’s income and medical programs that citizens have paid into all their lives. They constantly talk about massive cuts to both Social Security and Medicare.

Cortez and Omar are known to have called the programs ‘entitlements’ and seek their elimination. House Democrats are constantly stealing from SS to fund their own socialist pet projects.

And now Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has publicly stated her disdain for the systems that our seniors have earned and which keep them from becoming homeless and destitute.

At a recent $5000-a-plate fundraising event for orphaned San Francisco lemurs, Pelosi, drink in hand, raged about the greatest generation and their place in America today:

“These people are leeches. All they do is suck from the public teat. Take, take, take.

There are people in this country who need things like welfare and food stamps, yes. It’s income assistance. We help them get back on their feet when times are tough. But people on social security fall in a whole different category. They are not taking government money temporarily. They have no intention of rejoining the workforce and once again becoming productive members of America. They just want to take forever and want no conditions to be placed on the money. Social Security recipients are nothing more than burdens on society.”

Donald Trump responded:

“No, Nancy. They are not burdens. They are great Americans who built this country and who paid into the safety net system all their lives. That is not government money, it is their money…..and you’re not touching it.”

Republicans are trying to figure out why Nancy Pelosi would say something that would definitely get her re-elected in Kentucky if she switched “social security” for “welfare” but is certain political suicide in her home state.

Most experts are assuming that the quote is actually a construct and not necessarily real or something a person actually said.

  1. EXCUSE ME NANCY !!!! BUT WE PAID INTO SS AND EXPECT IT BACK. WE ARE NOT A BURDEN. I DO WORK WITH THE CHURCH AND WE VISIT TO BRING FOREIGNERS INTO THE CHURCH IF THEY DO NOT KNOW THE BIBLE. SOME ARE HEATHEN. THEY ARE BEST IN THEIR OWN CHURCH THAT IS ACROSS TOWN ONCE THEY ARE IN THE FOLD, WE HAVE EQUAL BUT SEPARATE CHURCHES. AND THAT IS WHY WE ARE NOT A BURDEN.

    • The ones with 4 plus kids and on welfare are the burdens…not to mention the ones in the country illegally and still get assistance. Woman you are just mean and nasty and could care less about people that have worked their tails off all of their lives to not have to worry about how they will make it in their golden years. Show some respect your luck to be where you are. Guess NO One in your family has ever received the benefits that they paid for through the years of HARD WORK!!

      • Her time as a wealthy millionaire is shorter and shorter everyday. She will leave with nothing the day she dies. Heaven or hell is all she will receive. She chooses with the way she leads her life and treats others. A leader has greater accountablility. God says “where much is given, much is expected”.

        • I will go ahead and tell you that, unless she repents, hell is all that awaits her. And I don’t say that judgmentally because apart from repentance and accepting God’s forgiveness, that’s all that awaits any of us. Even she is not beyond the reach of God’s merciful grace, but if she went right now….I wouldn’t want to be in her shoes.

    • another tax forced on the American workers, that they Democrats think they themselves are entitled too….politicians are the non productive people doing the take, take, take…. she has everything backwards

      • Right, giving $$ to illegals and other looser who don’t wanna work, democrats should be reaching in joes pockets, its $$ he took for selling out his country, idiots who voted for him should be proud of themselves, turning this country into a joke!!!

        • Lady you are an insult to all Americans we have worked hard and paid into ss it’s our money not yours we are entitled to all of it plus some your old a.. needs to be put out in the streets.

  2. I HAVE ASK IN CHURCH ABOUT THIS AND NO BODY HEARD OF IT YET, I THINK Q MIGHT SAY SOME THING BUT HE ONLY TALKS TO PATRIOTS IN SECRET WEBSITES, AND LET US KNOW THE TRUTH. IF SS IS TAKEN BY NANCY SHE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE ARE ANGRY !!!! WE ALL AGREE WE WILL DO SOMETHING BUT REMEMBER JESUS VALUES TOO.

    • Of course not. Like every other article I see here, it’s false, and can easily be fact-checked.

      Listen people, ANYBODY can put up a picture from the media, add some fake text to it, and post it to social media. It’s so obvious usually that I think it’s often a joke, but so many people seem willing to believe anything. I wish I knew these people – I could make a fortune selling fake merchandise! (that’s a joke, don’t believe it or anything else you read without checking).

  3. i know its a satire website but, we see people getting angry. perhaps we should hold out on stories till we see or hear it said by whoever the story is about.

  4. OMG. Never mind that there’s no source cited for this, never mind that it’s posted is on a satire web site, never mind that they’re quoting Pelosi for stuff that’s the complete opposite of everything the Democrats have ever stood for. In case you missed all that, this also refers to a fundraiser for “orphaned lemurs” (LOL) being held “recently.” Who in their right mind thinks they’e holding fundraisers for orphaned lemurs in San Francisco during coronavirus lockdown? But in spite of what’s totally obvious, some people are so full of hatred and so lacking in reading comprehension that they can’t even recognize a joke when they see one.

  5. WELCOME we are with my husband in retirement emaz has 70 and 64 in November last year we tried for help coupons for food and laugh is that for a month for two of us we got $ 7.50 per person is $ 15 for us both are a bit of a joke and The lady speaks of great help for older people shock Regards

  6. You are all idiots. This is a SATIRE site–at a $5000 a plate dinner for orphaned San Francisco lemurs? Come on!

  7. The lies are falling out of your mouths just like tRump’s worthless promises. How about telling the truth for once. The Repukes hate people and want us to die. That’s why Wisconsin voters had to go stand out in the outside for hours to vote. Repukes don’t give a damned! They are the crooks. Now this sight needs to be shut down!

    • I don’t know how you can say Trumps empty promises. That man fought every single day as the democrats didn’t give him a minutes peace and he still did a fantastic job , then wow we get hit with a pandemic and destroys all his progress . He is a huge threat to our political system as he was doing better than any politician and that scares the shit out of them. It proves that we don’t need career politicians to run this country and prosper!!!!

    • This site, in case you did not realize it,and I know it’s confusing because Republicans think it is REAL, but it isn’t. This site is parody, it IS a Satire site. That means it is all jokes. It is just that Republicans are stupid enough to not be aware of that fact. Republicans think this is real news, not satire. What can you do, they believe in Trump and his fantasies too. It is really quite amazing that these Republicans can’t tell jokes from reality.

  8. We weren’t a burden as long as you were stealing from the social security kitty.. I pray Daily God takes good care of you Nancy Pelosi!!!!

  9. I read The Onion a lot and always get a laugh at the satire there. But this site really doesn’t do well with its jokes… they always seem to fall flat, largely because they’re too close to real far-right idiot columns that make similar claims. It’s hard to see this as anything less than poor satire at best and far right conspiracy BS masquerading as satire at worst.

  10. Can you ever imagine Polosi using the term “Government Teat???….come on people, this is not mentioned in any other news source…Gee I wonder why…ya stupid Americans!!

  11. “Everything on this website is fiction. It is not a lie and it is not fake news because it is not real. If you believe that it is real, you should have your head examined. Any similarities between this site’s pure fantasy and actual people, places, and events are purely coincidental and all images should be considered altered and satirical. See above if you’re still having an issue with that satire thing.”

  12. what a trashy web site it must bother some republicans playing there reverse psychology thats what they do, adults are not getting it. democrats want to expand and protect social security the stealing has went for trumps wall

    • LMAO… Granted this is a satire site, but if you truly believe the commie democrats are trying to PROTECT Social Security, YOU ARE BONKERS! President Trump has only been in office for 4 years. HE has not been trying to get rid of Social Security! In fact, he has promised to protect it and retain it for AMERICAN CITIZENS, NOT for non citizens. The communist democrat party wants to give it to illegal aliens and non citizens as well. Congress has been using it as their private slush fund for YEARS!

  13. I blamed her for the late response of this administration to the coronavirus. Distracted Nonsense president impeachment trial for a year all the way to the begining of 2020.

  14. This is fake news. Democrats want to expand SS & Medicare while the Republicans are the ones who want to cut our programs that WE put our money into! Shame on them for their LIES!! Nancy Pelosi NEVER said this!!

  15. Don’t all these fukin’ idiots realize this is a satire? Are these libturds all that STUPID? A $5000 a plate fund raiser for orphaned San Francisco Lemurs??? Pelosi is a full tilt bozo, but really people?

  16. Randy Baker RETIRED SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN AND CONGRESSWOMEN ARE THE BIGGEST BURDEN ON SOCIETY. SURE THEY HAVE THEIR OWN PRIVATE RETIREMENT INSURANCE BUT WE PAY THE PREMIUMS.

  17. Randy Baker RETIRED SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN AND CONGRESSWOMEN ARE THE BIGGEST BURDEN ON SOCIETY. SURE THEY HAVE THEIR OWN PRIVATE RETIREMENT INSURANCE BUT WE PAY THE PREMIUMS.

  18. A burden on society for drawing out OUR MONEY that the government did not contribute one red cent to, does not and has never owned??? Nancy Pelosi is a liar, a thief, a demonic witch and the biggest BURDEN ON SOCIETY that we have ever known as a nation! She needs to be the guest of honor at a public lynching!

    • I am so sick of hearing about us Seniors and how Pelosi and her group are always picking on us Seniors. I have worked 50 years and paid into my social Security along with my employer to have this benefit when I retired. Not we are called leaches because they have been stealing our money for years and never putting one cent back. I have a very good solution for you people, give all us Seniors one Million Dollars EACH and be done with us and throw the money you receive from the now working people and do as you please. NEVER EVER CALL OUR SOCIAL SECURITY AN ENTITLEMENT NO WAY WE PAID IN THAT MONEY YOU GAVE US NOTHING..YOU ARE ALL SO DISGUSTING TO SAY THE LEAST. I HOPE WHEN YOU FINALLY RETIRE ALL YOUR MONEY IS GONE THAT HAS BEEN PUT AWAY FOR YOUR RETIREMENT THAT YOU NEVER PAID A DIME FOR.

  19. I doubt whether Pelosi ever said this, considering the source. The last 2 budgets that Rump submitted contains cuts to Social Security & Medicare. Democrats blocked it in the House.
    RepugliCONs have a strong history of “borrowing” from SS.

  20. That can’t be true. We work hard for our money. The government made us save this money for our security in the future. It’s our only sure savings that we cannot touch until we reach our retirement age if we are lucky to live that long. We are never a burden in the society. The burdens are the spoiled people who are able to work, but just plain lazy to work & the government is spoiling them. They go into welfare. They get help almost everything free including health care like Medicaid. We’ve been paying Medicare automatically deducted from our paycheck, but when retirements come, We still have to pay $145 to $150 coming out of our Social Security pension. What kind of system is this?

  21. I say go ahead and do away with it but give every penny taken back to those it was taken from. I’m sure the people currently collecting the Penny’s on the dollar that they “gave” would be able to live better having all of their money back.

  22. Nancy Pelosi you are the burden on America. I guess you will not need to draw on SS when you retire. If you retire you old croan. You and your sick in the head demoncrat make me Worry for America’s children. And the future of our once great country. America wake up. Vote these people out. Before its to late.

  23. Anyone who believes this nonsense might just as well go to the other side. The reporter mentions no source for the story. It looks to be pure fiction. There is no way to tell otherwise.

  24. And you are a greedy self serving drunk’n witch!!!!
    most people, such as myself, have busted out ass for 40+ years and because if the wear and tear in our bodies from doing so have now became disabled or old enough to draw ON WHAT WE PAID IN!!!!!
    Those that have never worked and are milking the system and lying are the ones that should be punished as well as asshat politicians that think SSI is free money for Politicians.
    You need to I be recalled and removed from office as well as the human race Nazi Pelousy!!!!!

  25. Nasty Nancy has out worn her welcome. She’s got to go and I hope it’s to prison for her and her husband’s crooked Dominion voting machines.

  26. If you want to stop my social security, then stop stealing it from my payroll check. I am 68 and will be working full time the rest of my life.

  27. Screw you Pelosi…that is MY hard earned money that I am receiving, not some charity from the Government…stupid Bitch!!

  28. Yeah she says that when we worked hard to pay our Social Security. I bet she’s never paid one penny of Social Security she’s going to live on a pension that we the Social Security Recipients are paying for. The witch better leave our Social Security alone.

  29. The best thing that ever happened to this country is Donald Trump. nancy your a low life. Keep your shit up and you will be physically removed by the citizens of America. The silent majority are tired of the shit show. You dumb ass politicians just have no idea u keep robbing everyday hard working people were tired of it. The average Americans are not willing to settle for anything less than Donald Trump so unless biden plans on doing a better job which i highly doubt be prepared to be removed. You people that claim u work for us your on the edge of starting a Revolution. U people really have no idea open your eyes. People are tired of u politicians doing for yourself and not taking care of America.

  30. Nancy you are one of us. I would recommend you. Not get your pension or any US money. You R not worth anything.
