I've been seeing a version of this take for a while around the wingosphere. Goes something like this:

The fact that Greece has accepted a bailout agreement from the EU is just more evidence that we must rid ourselves of Social Security.

And who, pray tell, Daniel, was primarily dictating the terms of the Greek bailout? Why it was that big welfare state Germany. You know, the one with universal healthcare, high taxes and strong labor unions.

What a maroon.

Can you help us out?
