President Trump's Proposed Payroll Tax Cut - Social Security and Medicare

Yes, President Trump and his minions keep pushing to cut or eliminate the Payroll Tax. Do you support this?  Do you believe that AARP is doing everything it can to prevent Trump's Payroll Tax Cut or Elimination?  Do you see Trump's position as a "Trojan Horse" to transform Social Security benefits into means-tested welfare?

 

Many in Trump's administration want to cut or eliminate the Payroll Tax permanently. Unlike Obama's 2011-2012 measure which cut the employee Payroll tax by 2%, Trump wants to eliminate the employer's contribution. There are various proposals.  

 

Social Security would be paid from general tax revenues.

 

How do you feel about all of this?

No,  I don't want to pay less payroll tax,  I want to pay more.

 

This is foolish, if we had raised payroll tax .001 % a year for the last 30 years there wouldn't be a shortfall in Social Security and Medicare now.
