Make Sure Dana Rohrabacher Never Accepts Social Security
Let me explain. A source who knows my love of unofficial Orange County history forwarded me a copy of a April 4, 1969 Los Angeles Times article documenting a Young Americans for Freedom protest outside the Old County Courthouse. The YAFers were burning Social Security cards to protest the retirement program as a "fraud." Guess who was there?
The caption to a photo reads, "John Schurman holds a card for Dana Rohrabacher, head of the group, to burn." The picture is too grainy to make out the face of young Dana, but clearly visible is his hand holding a match while another grasps a sign that reads, "Social Security is a Tax on Youth"
Dana doesn't have much of a record on Social Security other than trying to deny it for illegals, but he's also not such a zealot about it that I can find any recent activity against it. He's quickly approaching retirement age--will old Dana renege on the promises of young Dana? Someone ask him, please!
